Yeah it's just coming up with random s**t now I reckon.
There's nothing wrong with what I'm trying to post.

What does all this crap it keeps spewing out even mean ?
If anything ?

Maybe WP could use a reinstallation of phpBB if it's really this unstable ?

Or at least please... legible Captchas.
That is surely a human rights violation, not providing Captchas with words a human can even read.
:o

I've just had to wade through all that CloudFlare captcha crap too just to get access to the site and it took around 5 attempts. If I get hassled with much more, WP will be needing a new moderator / site admin because I'll be gone. I'll only put up with so much crap like that. CloudFlare sucks bad.


Apparently CloudFlare is more important to them then the members. :(

Maybe they are behind on digitalizing books, so they need to push out more CAPTCHA requests to catch up. :roll:

Other members have been making comments elsewhere on the site about having to enter Captcha's to post too. So I think this problem has become worse recently for some reason. It is time Alex sorted out the problems with the site or got the supposed new version up and running before the existing site crumbles under the weight of bugs and captcha annoyance driving members away.

I have since found that, after experiencing the first captia, if I close all tabs but one wp tab, log out and back in. this is resolving the issue for a while. If any of you are restricting cookies or are using script blocking addons/plugins such as no-script, self-destructing cookies, etc. This MAY be lending to the problem. if the site has to be configured to allow third party cookies (to allow advertising) in a fashion that the advertisements activate the bot detection functions when they are unable to push their advertising onto your system, tben perhaps the issue is stemming from 3rd party cookies causing false positives on the bot detection script

It can also be that the threshold values are set too low.

I would be surprised if Alex has the time to spend all day maintaining this site. A moderator could probably send him an email to an address that he monitors regularly, and just notify him of this development. I see comments like "alex needs to.............." but he has a paying job that requires his attention. He can't afford to lose a paying job for this site. He has dedicated years to maintaining this site. He is human also and I am sure that the inability to please everyone is just as wearisome to him as it is to us. Maybe he needs some vacation time from the stress of administering this website.

Hopefully someone can get this resolved for us without having to cause alex any unnecessary stress.

edit:
whether because of my self-destructing cookies add-on for Firefox android or site changes. I noticed being automatically logged out much faster than normal just prior to the capta screens starting to appear. there could also be a bug with how the cloud fire interacts with the auto logout or something related to or similar as that.

Right. I'm leaving WrongPlanet for the time being until this sh***y CloudFlare is sorted out. I had to go through that bloody captcha thing twice just to make a simple post in PPR. I'm sick to death of f***ing CloudFlare. I'm already on high blood pressure medication and CloudFlare is going to give me a brain haemorrhage at this rate. :x

Goodbye everyone. f**k CloudFlare.

Bye!

I am sorry to hear that. Please don't let buggy software ruin things for you.

I'm so sorry that CloudFlare is causing you so much stress. You will be missed during your break from WrongPlanet, but the break is a necessary one.

For me, there seems to be no rhyme or reason. I thought I might have malware... scanned and clean... different ips (i work at different places) new laptop with a clean install...

Started for me less than half an hour ago. So far, has applied to every post I've made or edited. 5 times so far. Impossible!

I've been getting it too, sometimes as often as twice per post, and every time I edit or preview, and I also seem to have to write something in the comment window too or the Captcha tests go on for ever. :( :? Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr

eg. http://www.wrongplanet.net/postt235795.html

BUT ***not*** on this thread in this Forum/sub-board, nor when I posted a test comment on a thread about Alzheimers. ... as if certain words are acting as Red Alerts to who knows who/what beginning with N and continuing with S and A perhaps. Either way, whatever is going on, it is deeply frustrating. ! !! !! !! !! !! !! !! !! !! !! !!

I usually don't have to enter them, though today it's been with literally every post. Nothing has changed, I post from my laptop only, every time, yet for some reason today it won't go away.

I'd like to make the sadistic bonehead who invented those things to have to enter in a new one evertime they did something online, even replying to mail. :lol:
We'll see how long they last then.
