 Fucking captchas (109f) 4638

I see a lot of people are complaining about this so I want to better know the full extent of the problem.

What I want to know from as many people as possible is: how often you get this and how much (or how little) does it annoy you?

The reason this shows up is because we use a system called cloudflare, which caches a lot of content making the site load faster for users across the world, but also adds some security restrictions so that those who are seen as threats (spammers, bots etc) have a harder time getting in.

Now you might say "But I'm not a bot or a spammer" but the system can't make the difference easily, they look at IPs, and if someone in your IP range is a threat, then you are marked as one (you're basically collateral damage in the 'battle' between cloudflare and the threats).

Now I have to options:
1) reduce the cloudflare settings even more so only the most critical of threats run into the captcha
this is not something I'd like to do but depending on how big of an issue it is for you, it might be the best solution

2) customize the captcha page and add a message saying - please post in >>>/site/ and ask to get whitelisted
As some might know you can ask to get your IP whitelisted, so you don't run into captchas anymore.
For some users that might be a definitive solution, while to others it might be a temporary one (until they IP range changes)

So answer the questions I raised above so that I know better how big this problem is, and based on that I will take a solution to reduce (or eliminate) the problem

I thought it was happening just because I haven't been here long. I get it frequently but not always. I would say 8 out of 10 posts I get caught with. It isn't horrible but it sure can be a pain to try and see what the words are. Sometimes I get a page that tells you to type numbers instead. That is much easier and only takes about five seconds. The garbled words are much harder. And I bounce around from my house to different wi-fi spots a lot so my IP will change all the time. So for me, just using numbers would relieve most of my problems.

Please you must relax cloudfare exigences

I'm new here and i seem to get it every single time.
I don't mind too much if you can just rely on white listing people i guess..

How big is the spam bot issue?

 Anonymous (e931) 4643

Doesn't bother me in the least. Just keep on running an awesome site and I'll keep typing in a string of random characters.

What I don't get is why the captcha, if meant to prove that the other end is actually human, doesn't at the very least temporarily white list the IP address for a set number of hours (12-24 hours). I'm willing the bet that most people would be fine with typing in a captcha once or twice per day, but as it currently stands where the captcha presents itself every fucking post, it's annoying and does more harm than good..and I mean new users will get that fucking captcha and sometimes be annoyed or scared away before they even begin to ask about it and get told to request a white listing. So, that's a third option to explore because why in the fuck wouldn't that be possible? And if you are able to do THAT then you probably won't need to lower the settings any further.

And yes, you should customize the captcha page regardless because I can see where getting this page can be very bewildering to a new user. If possible, make the page look more chlomo integrated as well as inviting to request a white list.

in my situtation , my ip had been blocked and i don't even know why?

 Symbianize (ab7d) 4646

sometimes it said that my ip is listed in tornevall, dnsl blablabla and it's really annoying. but for the security of the website, this is good. and so i'll just be lurker forever
been lurking to this site since january 2013 and this is my 3rd post.

 Anonymous (7334) 4647

Just lurking isn't the solution, we want people to post!

In the case where you or anyone else is blocked and can't post at all, you will need to email:

I get captchas pretty much every post. And its pretty annoying indeed. Whitelist always last like a couple days for me and then the captchas are back.

Someone do something about this bullsh!t. I bet this reply/post would need another one of these captchas.

Every single time i post anything (except not on my phone oddly) its a bit annoying especially when combined with the "this post looks automated" i though i could be white listed asked but still happens.

Ill probably get it again

I'm pretty used to captchas, I even kind of like them, it keeps drunk me from posting overly lewd things about clawie.

These only have to be overlain or tricky enought to fool a bot with Optical Recog

Many I have seen, here as well, are difficult beyond reason.

Colored letters are something a brain can disentangle better than a bot if their grey scale values are distinctive enough.

But may images like address plate are too faint to see and warped string letters are often just rediculously obscrure

I'm actually fine with the captcha issue on my computers and phones, using the WiFi connection in the office and at home. My problem though is my 3G and 4G connection for my phones. Every time the captcha appears, I'll enter it and I'll receive the error "You Did Not Make a Post". So, I can't even post with them on >>>/site/ to get whitelisted.

Perhaps, I'll try getting the IP addresses of their mobile data connection later cause apparently, Google can do that for me. But if that doesn't prove to be a solution, then this is the problem I'm stuck with.

 GG!Mu5DJ1d1S. 4655

Ok. I've reduced the cloudflare security settings.
I've also made a made a custom captcha page where it makes it clear it's an error and has a link to the thread in >>>/site/ where you can ask to get whitelisted
