Zero bots after adding custom fields + upgrading to 3.0.5 + disabling CAPTCHA, not even the usual 15 signed up bots that fail to activate their accounts daily. These were only a problem for my personal irritation anyway.
Do you mean if a bot can at some point learn to parse the number out of the error message? Yes you have a big point here. And the text-dropdown question it could get right by trial and error as there are only 2 options. A human I am not worried about, a human spammer WILL be able to answer the current bot questions I have easilybbrunnrman wrote:Meanwhile, regarding your use of the custom "Numbers" field, you ought to edit the language file, as indicated near the end of the Knowledge Base article so the error message doesn't give away the correct answer.
Well, right now I will give it a go and see what happens, tweak things along the way. 99% of bots can't even use an email activation

The ability to have two or three questions with mulitple answers (5 or 6?) could make this approach very flexible with the ability to weed out almost all spammers. Users could just get two of three questions (or whatever) correct and be admitted.
