ReCaptcha Test
Ever since my return a few months ago there had been complaints about the current Captcha system. Having done the major fixes and updates means I can finally respond to requests to fix some of these pending and more involved fixes. (Sorry LionHeart for not spending more time on the Economy Project yet!)

The obvious choice for a better captcha today is Google's reCAPTCHA service.
User Image - Blocked by "Display Image" Settings. Click to show.

The library functions had a tougher callback verification had been setup, now I just need to setup the captcha across all the features that uses it. That'll take the rest of the day.

Hopefully this will make life easier for everyone. whee

Okay, Captcha for PM, Forums, Runway, Aquarium, and Journals are done. Will push the changes live tomorrow morning, just in case I need to fix bugs right away.

Ahh, is that why it wouldn't recognize my captcha entries last night? I hope it's not too difficult a fix for you!

Thank you for the update!!

Dunno if the captcha will be implement in the game like Fishing, but so thankful for the forum. I know I've encountered few that won't accept it despite that I typed correctly.

*gets captcha saying "TOO MANY SECRETS"* ... Dangit.

for addressing the Gatcha system.

I'm still wondering why the Pet from the last one is SOOOO rare (most RIG pets have an average, some listing, etc, within a week, yet this one has had no MP sells).
It's extremely odd. sad Can't quest something that you can't even find.

AND Thank you for better Captchas! heart

can you get RID of the average price part of the marketplace? i am getting tired of seeing my wishlist item average priced 37 billion and going to purchase the item only to find its real priced 600 billion? (totally out of my price range). just make it so the wishlist price is the real price.

Are you going to fix the glitch in the ultra rare prize for golden catch? a lot of users (including me) have gotten it and yet no cash prize. someone looked into the code and had this to say.

Yes I would say it is definitely rigged. Upon inspecting the code for this game... Right Click and click on inspect, top tag that says sources, and then thumbnails on the side, there is no image for the 10000GC prize. There is an image for all other prizes but not ultra rare. From looking over the code, the game is set up to never give the top prize....

The first day i played i got 3 blank spots above the ultra rare (in a row) and then it rolled back to the 3 ultra rare. why is there no spot for the cash icon on the slots? how do you win it with the icons? i did not receive a cash prize and did not think to take a screen shot......
