Did you do a search for KeyCAPTCHA? If so, you'll find some information (from somebody who supposedly worked there or represented them) that the organization is not benign. I have no idea whether that's true or not, though.njfail wrote:I saw that most visual captchas are broken. I was searching the phpbb board for captchas and saw this: https://www.phpbb.com/customise/db/mod/keycaptcha/
Does anyone know if keycaptcha is effective? Anyone here use it?
You misunderstand what a CAPTCHA is. A CAPTCHA is any system designed to be solvable by humans but not computers (at least not today's computers). That can be Q&A, Sortables, ReCAPTCHA, etc.; a CAPTCHA does not have to be image-based. (Technically, some people claim that the CAPTCHA has to change everytime, which Q&A doesn't in most cases, but I have proposed a system where it would.)njfail wrote:I've been using the Q&A with: Type the hidden word: 92Epic3ka25r
Epic being the answer
But I'm still getting spam bots in (maybe one every other day).
Do you think its spam bots that are getting the question right? Or do you think its real people that answer the question and then spam my site?
I figured that if real people are logging the Q&A that I have, then a captcha would be good because it would change everytime.
