    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 !

    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!

    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....
    Ive contacted ReCaptcha (you can email them on
    Explain what the problem is you are experiencing and also include your IP address and Browser.
    I imagine we may get a reply never.

    thanks for the incognito tip - i wasn't getting anywhere with any of them - just an infinite loop of pictures of store fronts (that don't look like store fronts) - still had to do too many in the incognito window, but it actually went through after a couple of attempts

    i've emailed them as well, fingers crossed it will get fixed soon. super annoying!

    Whereas I found last night that on my phone it would just go straight to green tick, today it did bring up the picture captchas, however they were the old style very straightforward "select all the...." with no constant resubmitting, and it didn't take long at all. I found the same issue with Chrome - for a while this morning it was perfectly fine and went straight to green tick, then reverted to the more straightforward captchas.
    Either method is infinitely preferable to how it's been using Edge though. 5 minutes for every competition, urgh!

    I've just entered a bunch of comps I had bookmarked that wouldn't work because of the captcha problem and they went through fine this time. Hopefully its sorted now??

    What annoys me at the mo is the fact that now when we are required to subscribe to a newsletter, we not only get sent an email to confirm the subscription, but we also have to go through the captcha process as well! Grrrr!
    A big thanks to all who post and sprinkling lucky dust to all who enter

    I've just done 30 entries in one of One-Eye's Radio/mobile phone comps:

    The first 15 entries went through with no captcha at all, the next 15 went through with it as it used to be, or possibly even a little easier than it used to be. So, it's either sorted, or at worst they are obviously sorting it - thankfully.

    As above; they've either sorted it or are sorting it as I've managed to enter a few today with ReCaptcha's without the whole song and dance and never ending clicking.

    Thanks to everyone who took the time to email them; looks like they actually listened.
