    Captcha [Merged]
    When I loged into SAS today I was promted with the below question/screen:

    "Wow, you've been busy! We need to make sure that you are a human, and not a bot or script. Please type the word you see in the image below into the box to continue."


    So should I be concerened or has anyone else seen this????

    Captcha
    Why am I constantly getting an annoying CAPCHA now when checking stats?

    Is this new I've never got it before.

    I'm not getting it. Could it be cookie-related? Do you have them enabled?

    added:
    Now I got it, must be timed to go off if you check stats frequently.

    Yes, either get rid of it or at least make the capcha more readable.

    Please remove this captcha (or fix it)
    This has just started happening today from what I can tell. Every time I log in to see my reports I'm prompted by this message:

    "Wow, you've been busy! We need to make sure that you are a human, and not a bot or script. Please type the word you see in the image below into the box to continue. "
    If I enter it - it will log in me in but it won't remember for the next time.

    I'm sure many people, not just myself, visit "http://www.shareasale.com/a-accountactivity.cfm" by selecting it from the address bar. What used to happen is, it would throw you back to the login screen, you'd log in and it would redirect you to that page.

    But now it assumes this useful behaviour is the work of a bot

    Please fix it so it actually throws that message up WHEN I've really been busy not on my first page view.

    Cheers,

    Adam

    I tried to show the .png of the first capcha I received in order to show how impossible it was to figure out which was the word. Couldn't, for some reason.

    at any rate, if it is a problem and you hit the logout link once or twice the word involved gets simpler.

    but for us stats junkies, it's still a royal pain.

    After so many years in AM ... you lose your humaness ... Brian is just checking.

    However, if you don't know your human, you might want to get therapy. I suggest a soccer ball with straw for hair stuck on it. Give it a good name. Something like Wilson has proven to work. Stick it by your computer. Use it at your descretion.

    Hate it. Slow loading annoyance. If you're trying to drive people away from using the control panel, you're doing a good job.

    You should try to enter the captcha on an iPhone! It's quite a challenge.

    It's been thankfully gone for me, since about the time that Brian posted his response here. May it RIP, never to rise from the dead.
