I have a rotating group of questions; the trick is that I use (very simple) mathematical word problems. If you use a math problem written like a grade school drill, like "2+2*8", then bots can easily work through that. But if you use a simple mathematical word problem like "Cheryl buys two packs of Girl Guide cookies for $2 each and pays with a $5 bill; how much change should she get back", then bots seem to choke on it. The Q&A CAPTCHA can accept multiple questions too, so you can have four or five rotating questions (it randomly picks one each time).GameVixenZone wrote:I am currently using re-captcha on a large forum. I get so much spam signups I feel like it's even more so than the gd captcha. Is there a way to set the board to have QA with recaptcha without installing a QA mod (since one already exists within 3.0.6)
As some have pointed out to me, it's possible that certain low-IQ humans might choke on a question like that too, but I quite frankly always thought a board would be better off without such stupid people being able to join anyway.
LOL, thanks for the samplebut I quite frankly always thought a board would be better off without such stupid people being able to join anyway
