CAPTCHAs

Postby Xanatos » Thu Aug 27, 2015 7:04 pm

Due to a broken keyboard, I exceeded the maximum login attempts before finally getting my password correct and had to go through that godawful CAPTCHA business. I see now what everyone's complaining about. Can we address this please?

It's deliberately hard to prevent the русский спам. I can reduce the complexity but we'll eventually just get spammed again. It's as simple as it can be without the spammer's OCR being able to break it.

EDIT: OK fine I changed it. Tried some different settings, maybe it will work. Sorry in advance if we get spammed.

I'm pretty sure they're just rusty because they're made of iron.

Here's a new one, just in case your first one was damaged past the point of being able to repair it.
