Captcha

    If it stops people cheating for votes then I say keep it pictures, if it doesn't make a difference then the number one would be cool. However, I think the current image one could be improved slightly so that people would no longer have to 'Click here' to vote and the image box would automatically appear? Just a suggestion.

    Also, I was wondering if there is going to been any expected further maintenance breaks or am I safe to re-enable the voting system?

    Thanks

    Thanks for the feedback. I will attempt to make it the captcha automatically open, but I'm not sure if that's possible. Also, the only reason we have this new captcha is to prevent people from cheating, which is why I was forced to ditch it.

    There's no planned maintenance. There was an issue this morning with the datacenter, due to an upstream provider having issues, but that's it. If you're using the API that was officially released, I'd recommend switching the url in the code from "votingapi.com" to "findretros.com", so that way if it does go down, the script will detect it.

    First of all, Improve your grammar. Don't make me throw a dictionary at you.

    Second of all the new captcha is to prevent cheating and it takes some time to look at the pictures and vote. He's putting it up because you guys are always reporting proxy voting and cheating and he put a new captcha to prevent that, Yet your all complaining?

    Is that even necessary? What matters is rastalulz understood what I said, I'd gladly like to see my grammar corrections from him. Not from a random fag popping up correcting me out of nowhere

    How is this? [ Want to see this link? Register ! ]

    I made it even more straight forward, it automatically opens the box that asks you to click on the picture, and once you do so, it shows the vote button.

    Using the Python [ Want to see this link? Register ! ]and [ Want to see this link? Register ! ]modules, someone could theoretically make a script that matches the thing that you're trying to find (e.g. Click the food) to the image and click it. 4 images was much more secure. At least use 2-3.

    Having any more than 1 image will cause an inconvenience to users. They don't have the patience to sit clicking pictures for even 10 seconds more than they have to.
