CAPTCHA

Postby Keith Legge » 18 Dec 2014, 14:27

Question for the computer people does it matter what the CAPTCHA is on other sites the CAPTCHA changes each time ours is the same all the time?

The purpose of a CAPTCHA is nothing but verifying that the one who is trying to login, or send a form, etc. is a human being and not a machine.
Hence, this board will ask you to answer the CAPTCHA when you have attempted to log in too many times (you could be a hacking robot), when you register for a new account, and so on.

I can define as many CAPTCHA questions as you'd like and the board will pick a random one from the list. So use your imagination and dream up a few good ones! But do keep in mind the purpose - it's not an IQ test or a pub quiz, it's only to determine if the answer is coming from a human. A perfectly acceptable CAPTCHA question is, for example, "how much is two times four".

For us US based folks, what exactly is the acronym for the British st owners club? I tried what I thought was it an it didn't work. What else is weird is that I can log on from tapa talk, but not on my computer. Can't get past the stupid CAPTCHA.[POUTING FACE]

I still cant use Tapatalk, it asks to solve Captcha, but as you can see from the screen dump there is no Captcha below, this is also the same on my Tablet.
