    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 !

    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.

    I've just cleared cache, history and cookies and the captchas have sped up and only one lot of numbers/ mountains etc to do before it was accepted. A coincidence or have they listened to the complaints?

    MaineBlue, that's exactly how it's been for me - a comp that should take 10 seconds to enter is taking 5 minutes
    BUT, I've just tried entering on my phone instead of on computer, and hallelujah when I ticked "I'm not a robot", it just went directly to a green tick and skipped the captcha! I think this is going to have to be the way forward. Hopefully it was not a one off!

    I found that failing on purpose a couple of times then doing it right worked.

    So pick two mountains press verify

    Wrong try again

    Two house numbers press verify

    Wrong try again

    Then get it right and it works.
    Please note all references to "The Newt" are to my newt not to any other newt.


    ps Yes I know the newt is my imaginary pet newt so is in fact a made up newt and the other newt or newts might be real newts but I don't care!!!!

    Well if yesterday was bad today is impossible. I have been trying the Bauer comps and the star/express comps and I just cannot get any of these captchas to work.

    They are now mainly click until all mountains or street numbers have gone. Waiting patiently for the new images to load but despite all being clicked it just won't accept.

    It was better on the iPad yesterday but not today.

    Complaint sent off but I don't hold any hope in this being looked at as Google appear to be faceless when it comes to issues.

    I made a complaint last year that my post code on google maps is completely incorrect and goes to an address a couple of miles away but they fail to resolve this.

    I agree they are really dreadful at the moment.

    Try opening the link in an incognito window by right clicking the link.
    It seems to work some of the time after a couple of screens.

    Oh my.... I thought it was just me ��
    I was clicking and clicking and clicking ... Then tried the Audio and it said i was being blocked or something or other. I sent an email etc.. like advised, then read this forum.
    It's soooo frustrating all the comps we are missing out on. ��

    It usually seems to reset itself after 24 hours or so but it's like that bit has broken. I'm getting it literally on every comp with a Captcha whereas the first several go through without needing one usually.

    I gave up in Chrome the night before last, but it did then only take a few attempts in IE.

    Not faced them yet today but about to start. Wish me luck LOL.

    Try turning off your form filling software and typing in your details manually it appears to be working for me "at present"

    maybe there are hidden fields that the form filling software are triggering?

    still have to jump through hoops but not as many as before i:e now i'm only getting 2-3 capture pages!

    The only way I can get it to work is to use incognito windows. Just got one through on second go

    Went back to normal window both on Ipad and laptop and just not working at all.
