Annoying Captcha.
« on: July 30, 2016, 11:44:25 AM »
For the love of god this must be the most annoying captcha I have ever seen.

First the annoying letter captcha where you can't make anything out of it. Until you look at it for over a min.

Then the "what color does mixing" question. I have to look at google every time to look up the answer.

I know you are preventing bots from spamming. But this is just overkill.

Do you get this every time you login? Usually it's just for when you create an account.
For the end of the world spell, press Control, Alt, Delete.

I only ever saw it the once many years ago, never get it now when I log in.
Sometime have to enter password several times before it gets accepted though

I think I found the setting doing this to you and have reduced the count.

Let me know if you have to go through this the next time to login and post so I will know I have the right setting

It's an anti spam measure to stop new accounts creating multiple spam posts.

Sadly I cannot lower the count any more than I have and I can't see an option to remove it either.

First three posts is not as bad as before - unless Lego can find a way to turn off?

Personally, I think three is not that bad if it reduces spam

Yes, but can't there be a better Captcha.

I can barley see what's written on that field.

Also the color thing is annoying as well.
