Beta Testers Needed

May 3, 2012   [permalink]

People have inquired over time if there's some alternative I could use to the "type the two words to prove you're human" anti-spam test on various forms. The words are getting harder to read (presumably as the spammers are getting better at reading their mangled words!), so I've written my own for use on Critters and so forth. Before I deploy it to the masses I'd like a few volunteer beta-testers to tell me if it works ok... If you're interested, it's at:

http://critters.org/turingtest.cgi

Give it a try, and let me know if you have problems with it.

It's not meant to be Fort Knox strong so I'm mainly wanting to know if it works well for people, and if it's easier to use than the hard-to-read type-two-words approach.

Thanks!
