    Picture captchas ! 1st Apr 17 at 5:15 PM
    These picture captchas are getting weirder . I just had one which asked me to tick all the hamsters ? Except there weren't any. Only a rabbit, a squirrel, a chinchilla and some other furry creature.. It only let me enter when I had ticked all those !

    These are being Sooooooo slow for me. I hate the ones where you have to click until there are none left

    It has been a nightmare for me for over a week now. Mornings for some unknown reason seem to be worse. However I can't seem to get any to work this evening.

    To all of you having these problems, have you tried the 'Audio' option? For me that doesn't work either and instead accuses me of using 'automated software', which is utter BS.

    The mountain captchas are the worse for me at the mo - some of the photos show piddily little hills - some not much bigger that mole hills -
    and certainly not mountains! The people who create these captchas must be blind or stupid! Mmmmm why does Shakira spring to mind when thinking about mountains????
    A big thanks to all who post and sprinkling lucky dust to all who enter

    Don't judge my path if you haven't walked my journey...

    I am now finding these impossible. They are getting worse. The ones where you have to click until none are left are taking ages for a new image to appear. After minutes of clicking away it is still not accepting.

    I am just trying to do a couple of entries in the Bauer comp and cannot get any of the captchas to be accepted.

    Currently on the 40th attempt and still no luck Giving up.

    Does anyone have any idea who to complain to? No actual information on the captachas but I would love to send a complaint.

    Arrrgh I feel I've cracked the crystal maze when I finally get the picture captcha right!
    The clicking the mountain one is absolutely ridiculous, I actually took about 5 minutes jumping through every hoop just to confirm there were no mountains left.

    Purposefully designed. And actively aware. reCAPTCHA knows when to be easy on people and hard on bots. Our easy CAPTCHAs are a breeze for legitimate users.

    Oh well, back to the drawing board. Also, if I try the voice ReCaptcha it tells me ‘We are sorry but your computer may be sending automated queries....’
    I’ve contacted ReCaptcha (you can email them on security-help@recaptcha.net)
    Explain what the problem is you are experiencing and also include your IP address and Browser.
    I imagine we may get a reply never.

    OMG thought it was me, awful, taking ages to enter comps with it like this.

    First time happening for me today and am trying to enter the £5000 where you can enter 12 times per phone number
    at this rate I will still be here tonight.

    I too have emailed, if everyone does then maybe they might do something
