Non-English words? In my CAPTCHA?
22.09.2010 um 15:21
People who have been adding comments or forum posts to our site recently may have noticed something peculiar about the random codes you have to type to prove you're human (a.k.a.
). We've gotten several reports that non-English words are slipping into the
panel, causing people to have to refresh the panel to get a new code. Obviously, having to do this at all is a nuisance, let alone several times.
I dug into the issue and discovered that, apparently, the ReCAPTCHA team
improperly marked many books as English books
. They've been weeding out the bad books and have improved their QA process beyond "view a few random pages in the book" to make sure they aren't actually trying to digitize a book that's only partially English.
In the meantime, the annoying codes that you can't type should be slowly disappearing.
For now, Wowhead plans to continue to use ReCAPTCHA as we believe it provides a useful service. In addition, as annoying as this issue was, it beats having to debug issues with our home-brewed CAPTCHA system. However, if issues continue to crop up, we will likely revert to our old CAPTCHA while we research another framework. Between having to debug our own code or having a usable site, we'll take the debugging any day!
