If this sh*t keeps going like it's going right this minute I'm seriously giving thought to finding myself a new music site online. Kills the fun. It is unbelievably irritating and furthermore leaves one feeling unsafe whilst communicating with other members 'am I about to lose my post/will it go through/nahh access denied'.
Cannot be right that most other sites can run without these robot tests and we can't. Yep might as well look around RYM for new kicks.

[email protected] has lowered the setting for the frequency of captchas a couple of days ago, did anyone at least felt the difference?

Sure. I felt it for the duration of an evening. Now it's back with a vengeance - especially when I post from my laptop...and my laptop is pretty clean. I stopped surfing for porn long ago. I now use binoculars thanks to my nextdoor neighbour
Seriously though George I can't think of any positives this new implementation has brought with it. Spammers still frequent the site - even whilst Max had the setting on high. To me it seems like fishing for trout using boomerangs. Wonderful tool sure but not really meant for fishing.

Unless this gets fixed the forum will die. People will not put up with such sh*te forever.

Oh and in addition o my earlier post: I'd much rather nuke the odd spammer a couple of times a day than continue this tomfoolery. It takes a second to eradicate a spammer - years to heal the loss of a well-written post.

so that is next... enter the code.. and still rejects the post.

whatever...

I do have faith in our fearless leader to rid us of this madness.  What I don't have faith in are us.  PA's is like crack cocaine man.  Still I come here.. still you all do.  [email protected] removes this the second he sees his precious clicks and site hits go down. He makes f**king money from this site.  Boycott it.. and then you'll see action.

f**k Trump.. f**k [email protected] f**k Progarchives. Join the revolution... stamp out ignorance and runaway greed

And I've simply not taken out the time to write them back... PA's loss as much as mine, really!!!Ouch

I take it you're half tongue-in-cheek there Micky as Max doesn't make money off this site...if so it is not the amount that earns you the right to stop working irl.
I think this robot non-sense is a case of being overprotective. Kinda like Kansas pulling out of their European tour because of future terrorist attacks. On here the terrorists are merely substituted by malicious spammers.

last straw here...

15 minutes to make a post.   I'll be back when or if Captcha is removed.

not sure about the rest of you....  if you get the communication with Captcha error..  your post isn't going through.  Enter the code.. still rejected...  tried to bypass it it.  ANd continuely skipped back trying to get a hole in Captcha.. it asked for it every single time. The pisser is.. you have to cut and paste the code.. and you lose the post you had saved if of course Captcha rejects you.. which it has every single time for me.

I'm out.. see you all on the bright side.

Just posted this on the PSIKE team but more appropriate here:


This site is such a pleasure lately. It asks me if i'm a robot. I check the box. It asks me to check squares. I comply. It doesn't issue a verify button and i have to skip to do it again. I'm getting irritated. I check another series of boxes. Despite the friggin cars having tiny fragments in certain boxes, those don't count for some reason. Try again. I finally perform satisfactory for anti-robot protection services. It works. I instantly get a user error page and have to start all over. I try again. User not authorized. I refresh. Same. I say f**k it and instead of quoting start a new post. Refresh about ten times hoping it will finally take. Eventually success ensues as the morning is completely wasted away. 

What say youz? Should we start our own site?

I get it, usually on my first post for the day. But, in my case, I don't write much or link things to my posts, so I can only imagine how all you out there feel with this sh*tty CAPCHA arrangement. What a dumb idea

You sound like barnacle designing their 'dream ship'. I don't have a problem with anyone making profit from facilitating the PA resource for discourse and reference. Start up your own site that dispenses entirely with any prerequisite investment in terms of viability and see how far you get.
