hi,
just a quick complaint
I hate recaptcha & so coming to these forums is annoying since I get a recaptcha each & everytime
despite being a human last I checked, apparently recaptcha hates me so much that is always says I failed .....
 
so yeah I know you don't control recaptcha, but it's your forum, you chose to use it, I know why your business & many others use it but still.
Hence this formal complaint.
That is all.
 
Thanks for reading.

    well, check the box "remember me" when you log in.   I don't get one every time and I check in literally 50-60 times per day.    Give it a try.   The reason for the captcha is to discourage hit and run spammers.    It has helped out a whole lot.  
     
    now.  How could it annoy you when you have only two posts......and joined 4 days ago?

    It’s slightly annoying but not that bad. The problems from spammers are reduced enough to make me glad it was added.

    Deliriouswell, check the box "remember me" when you log in.
    not an option for security reasons

    Delirious   I don't get one every time and I check in literally 50-60 times per day.
      good for you
    not applicable to me

    Delirious  The reason for the captcha is to discourage hit and run spammers.    It has helped out a whole lot.  

    yeah sure for forum moderators it's heaven & simple .... though why you reply that to me when I purposefully said :
    whismerhill I know why your business & many others use it but still.

     
    Deliriousnow.  How could it annoy you when you have only two posts......and joined 4 days ago?
     welcome.....BTW

    Thanks. and because it took me over 5 minutes to get past it ???
    because recaptcha is widely used & your website ain't the only one. And EVGA is a good brand it pains me to see such an annoying captcha system on it.
    example (though today I got lucky)
    h-t-t-p://prntscr . com/mv4o81


    just after this screen I get a retry fail (yes I took the screenshot before validating, it was a gamble and it indeed did what I expected of it)
    can anyone see where I failed ? because I don't
    and yeah I'm sorry for not having bionic eyes. or maybe my screen also needs a replacement I dunno.

    EDIT: it filtered out my screenshot -_-
    this is lightshot associated website it's not spam nor threatening in the least

    just live with it I guess.   it is heaven not to have deal with as many spammers.   The member also like it because they don't cluster up their posts. 
     
    if you don't want to check the box.  live with it.

    Yes, its a pain ...... like whack-a-mole when the tiles keep changing after you select them
     
    Someone has to train the AI for Google - I guess its us the  computing public

    In a world of drive through meals and tap payments I figured the delay EVGA imposes on its users would come under scrutiny at some point in the Earths current evolution cycle. This completely desynchronizes the day around which individual schedules have been planned. It's an additional 5 seconds per day away from facebook, significantly limiting the ability to update a persons current hunger or cleanliness status, and/or what funny antics their cat just performed. Pictures of children no one wants to see won't post themselves, people!!! It also requires up to 10 additional mouse clicks which results in wear and tear.
     
    EVGA, please eradicate this inconvenience with conviction. POST haste.

    love when they want you to select the "cars" ---> read that as All vehicles - cause vans & SUV are not cars

    that's not even the root of the problem
    the issue is that in my example picture link, I defy you to find a single bicycle despite that it fails to validate
    same thing happens to me ALL the time
    or when you get to see a road in the distance and you have to guess whether or not the 2 pixels in the far distance of this purposefully blurry noisy image is actually an artefact or a bus ...

    and since google doesn't give feedback on why you made an error I can't even autocorrect myself
    so my world of fails is when I sometimes even get blocked out from recaptcha
    (so it's not 5seconds as some other poster said LOL)

    and the truth is : recaptcha is doomed to fail & annoy us more & more, because self-learning AI is slowly becoming a thing ....


    so yeah I'm a robot I guess, despite my flesh & bones which honestly I could do without
    EDIT : this thread has far outreached its purpose of a simple complaint

    The only thing I notice in your picture that you shared is that there was only one option, and that was to click verify.

    I have noticed that sometimes when I use my PC, the recaptcha says I did not get it correct and I will usually get annoyed and want to know why it reset as well.

    From your example, I can’t see a bike either, so the option seems to be pretty obvious according to what recaptcha states.


    I can state the recaptcha has slowed the spammers down a good bit. As frustrating as it can be, it is also serving its purpose at the same time. Sometimes I wonder if recaptcha is trying to test our patience to see if we really are human, because we keep getting it right.

    I completely understand your point of view here, but I don’t think this is going to go away.

    It will happen. What you are doing is training computer learning how to identify objects. It thought it saw a bike
    You say no. Your input is fed back into the model and the AI is trained thanks to you.

    It is purposely a difficult task and will fail every now and then by design.

    If you didn't use such paranoid security practices, you will never need to solve another reCAPTCHA ever again. You would just click the "I am not a robot" thing, it would give you a check mark, and then that would be it. It's your high security settings which make you need to solve image tests.

    Well I guess they could have 2-step authentication.. I would think clicking the recaptcha would be preferable though. If you're using an unsecure connection all the time, then that's the price you pay.

    Ever since I read this post whenever I encounter reCAPTCHA I have been messing with it by deliberately picking a mix of correct and incorrect objects 😆 and still passing 🤣 and at this point I don't care how many times it tests me as long get through and have some fun doing it.

    I rarely have any issues like that. Are you on a VPN? Sometimes that can cause issues. Or if the security on your browser is set too high.
