New security feature for geochecker.com!
« on: August 16, 2012, 08:41:27 »
Are you tired of those impossible to read 'captcha' characters?

buddysally's new cache "FAMOUS BERT'S", http://coord.info/GC3TGQK, uses geockecker.com's classic geochecker, but it has a new security feature: "http://areyouahuman.com/?utm_source=Game&utm_medium=PlayThru&utm_campaign=GameLogo"

Have a look at the new 'game' used to prove you're not a bot, either on the "are you a human" site or the actual cachepage geochecker. It's very cool! Intuitive and easy, but not for a bot!

In answer to your "Are you tired..." question, that's a big YES.  However when I invoke the geochecker from the cache page of Famous Berts, I get to enter the coordinates and that's it: no captcha, no game (I'm disappointed), I just get the validation results no questions asked.

You're right Royfran, the 'are you human game' is MIA on geochecker.com right now! Too bad, because it's better than the alternative, but having no 'bot check' feature is a good second best. Honestly is anyone going to go to the trouble to bombard geochecker.com with automated 'guesses' to solve a puzzle that can be solved with ten minutes of Google searching?

THANKS FOR TELLING US ABOUT THIS BLUELAMB.

YOU GOT ME IN TROUBLE HERE AT HOME.

**********************************************

Conversation between Ma & Pa:

PA - There is a change at geochecker
MA - Oh really?
PA - Yeah they changed the security on it and you play a game now.
MA - Oh that.  It was done quite a while ago and I saw it when I checked the coords on all those Gatineau puzzles that I solved.  I told you about the game when I first saw it.  Dont you ever listen to me?
PA - Uh well I think I forgot. Anyway, the game is gone now.
MA - I know. I told you that too.  There is no longer a security check.
PA - uh  oh OK... Wow so you did a bunch of Gatineau puzzles eh?  That is fantastic.
MA - Yeah I told you that too.  I solved 58 of them. Dont you remember?
PA - Hey another episode of Big Bang Just started

I just discovered that the game is there.

If you mess up a solution as I did and just start changing a number and keep submitting, it will bring up a game to get you to prove you are a (bad at puzzles) human.
