New Improved Spam / Captcha

Hello There,

I just happen to find this the other day and wondered if it might be able to be either made into a mod or even better, added to the core so it is just standard.  There might be a special bond made between flux and

http://areyouahuman.com/

I searched for this on the site, but it came up with lots of responses, none of which showed the areyouhuman site.  Just other things, so please forgive if this has already been discussed.

Thanks!


Kind regards,
Saxamo

Re: New Improved Spam / Captcha

That looks like a cool concept. This should definitely be one of the first extensions to be created for 2.0.

I'm intrigued. Wrote it down on my list. smile

Hi.

Beware : This could be a problem for "visual deficient" people.
And the audio way could be a problem for "strangers" to the used language ...

Re: New Improved Spam / Captcha

That's true. I don't know whether they have an option for visually impaired people.

Anyway, that's one of the reasons why this will be an extension and not part of core.

Re: New Improved Spam / Captcha

Hi.

I looked at similar solutions before using the HoneyPot field.
And there's no comparison, to my eyes : The HoneyPot field is really a good protection, furthermore because it doesn't make any distinction about users. It's really invisible and require no action from the registering user smile
All Captcha methods require an action from the user, and thats where users are not in equal conditions.

Sorry for my poor English, I hope your understand me correctly ...

Re: New Improved Spam / Captcha

I actually made myself mod for this about 2 months ago as I love this method of spam catching. Works perfectly. I'll make it up as a shareable mod this weekend and get it uploaded if people are interested.

Re: New Improved Spam / Captcha

I agree, but personally don't like JS Captchas.

Captchas aren't necessary, JS well protects from bots. wink

Re: New Improved Spam / Captcha

In my free time I remove spam from PunBB official site. They have KeyCaptcha installed and it doesn't work properly. smile

Re: New Improved Spam / Captcha

This is so awesome benjawi!  Is there any chance of making it available for the mod installer?  I think in the future ( one I truly believe fluxbb has ) people are going to be more apt to do updates with the mod installer vs editing core files only to have to edit them again once an update shows up.

I would be willing to give a donation for this to be made into a mod install.  Please PM me with minimum conversion costs..

Thanks!


Kind regards,
Saxamo

@benjawi: This should be a language string "We need to make sure that you're a real person".

@saxamo: I use Daris' Patcher which installs from the readme.txt and does not require a custom mod install.

Oh yeah, I did have that. Just missed it off the write up. Fixed now and v1.1 is up to include it.

I had an email from the guys at areyouahuman.com and they've added a link to their site and also added FluxBB as an platform option when signing up smile

Also will work on making it as a simple plugin so that you don't have to edit any core files. When I finish that I'll add topic in the mod section.
