Rapidshare Captcha Wth?

Recommended Posts

I was troling about a few minutes ago and went to d/l something off rapidshare and came across this peice of work..

I can totally understand the use of CAPTCHA but this is crazy :crazy:

I dunno maybe it is because I just woke up and my vision is still a little fuzzy, but I cant make nothing out of this jumbled mess at the moment.

why can these websites not keep these things half assed ledgable. Or an alternative for "dummies" like myself who can not see cats dangling from letters because the letters look like they have vines growing on them or something. I wanted to d/l a file not solve an optical illusion. I don't wish any harm to anyone but the person responsible for this should be poisoned and have to solve 20 or 30 of these stupid things to get the antidote.

At the least if you mess the first one up you should get a couple more cracks at it.

Common there has got to be another way..........

For people like us, who cannot tell the difference between a skewed cat & a skewed dog, there are the rapidshare "happy hours" where you can download without having to posses the skillz of David Copperfield.

Boy, I wish i could figure out when they are... (too dumb for this also, i assume...) :^

Anyway, i think the one that came up with the idea, should be castrated... I would happily do the dirty work. :zorro:

Lol @ HVC.... glad I am not the only one having problems

@Ted: I hate it for them they arent getting a penny from me, I'll take my uploading/downloading elsewhere. I would still d/l if I could get these puzzle in 1 or 2 tries, What are people with poor vision supposed to do?

They just did this recently too, and every single time I try to download from RS now, I can't cause of it. It's like, almost impossible to get all 4, usually 1-2 stand out completely, 1 is a bit hard, the other is hiding and impossible to notice. I avoid RS at all costs anymore, not worth the hassle. Let alone when you type the wrong answer in you have to way the time again too.. kinda overboard if you ask me. (Speedyshare ftw!) >.>

Its annoyed me too, but I seem to have got used it now! I must have good eye sight, but some of my gfx says different!

To me this shows desperation they must be getting slamed with bots and tools etc! I will never go premium no matter what stunts they pull!

Then you should send them an email and complain. They will only listen if there are complaints or they have a big drop in user support...

You know, they were annoyed about the exist of all kind of capcha generators and want to give a fair chance the premium members. A simple reason. Anyway, I love this daily happy hours nowadays, but I think also they log maybe

how fast you can type it and analyse how the avarage rapidshare guy works.

Not recognizeable? :P You are right, you should have seen, when this prototype of this new methode came out.

It was much better you can see it here: http://img231.imageshack.us/img231/6885/katzencaptchadt2.jpg

and sometimes I'm angry about they are using jpg and not gifs, that I forget to type the code and waste my time in thoughts why can nobody respect so simple DTP basics. The holy usability :lol:

I could see them seeing a big decrease in downloads per-day / pre-month at that. So many people are having issues with the new system, that most of the time they just give up and look elsewhere for a file. I personally don't see this one lasting long cause of it.

There are already some sites creating articles about how hard it is to see the cats in the images lol.

i agree is hard for find cats

The RapidShare Happy Hours are active right now. Have fun!

Rapidshare Happy hours still working 12.40PM (and for me now midnight 00:52 local hour in France)

the ones that drive me nuts are the ones that are CAPS sensitive too, so you invariably get that wrong too, then when you do get it right it redirects you to another one and then you just seem to go round in circles !

what ever happened to the ones that were created with different patterns of black dots ... i could read those !

I'll have to wait 1 minute for the captcha to load then get it wrong then wait for another minute... The owner of rapidshare.com is obsessed with money and wants us all to go premium! greedy guy... :angry: hehe
