Not A Bug - General Question

Pages: 1 4 replies

Greetings - thanks for your stellar effort here. I have a general question : is captcha a necessity? Always found it exceedingly annoying. Best,BR

Short answer is yes…

Captchas are only shown:

  • on login
  • on registration
  • when posting (new, edit and replies) if you have less than 10 posts

It's a measure to try and reduce spam during the relaunch and before we add moderation tools.

All good... thanks for the quick reply. BR

I don't have 10 posts, so expected. It's also popping up for post edits and replies. Won't be a huge problem if/when I get enough posts, but that's there.

The problem is Captchas don't actually stop spam anymore if they're used JUST for a log in. Someone can solve it once then have a bot post the rest. So we're requiring them for every action on accounts with less than ten posts.

it's annoying, but temporary, and sadly required. Over the 20 years of Tiki Central, we've had THOUSANDS of fake spam accounts registered. Possibly 10s of thousands.
