Re: Time to upgrade the riddle?

That is exactly the problem, some riddles are so hard to figure out that a person posting gives up and then they get very, very frustrated. google's riddles are hard and i sometimes can't tell over and over what it is... and yes, as you say, you give up. We are not dealing with a <20 crowd here and there is immediate frustration when certain aspects don't work. most users have been here for a long time and if we have to change the entire format it will stop them from using it - for the familiarity of 10 years is just so nice...

my only 2 cents for this discussion at this point. i know exactly what's going on :))) if you want to break it you can. captcha and all its derivatives have been broken/solved. this means that yes, you can break it, it has already been broken.

I have an old "homewritten" version of pre captcha from 1998. i might implement it here as well, because it has actually really worked very well since then every day! it's so antique that their bots don't "know" or "remember" that old stupid way of doing it :)) , we shall c.

i will get to it this week!
