Captcha using text confirmation was much tolerable.



It was easier for bots to handle (and still is, until general image recognition ones improve), but was very difficult for people with certain disabilities.

One of the main problems I have with the image version, is not knowing what it is including in its definitions (whether it counts the poles which support a road sign, as part of the sign, for example), as that is not always clear; the fact there are disparities between terms in English and American "English", is also an issue (but given they seem to be using U.S. English in-game, now, for some reason.. I doubt that would be a concern for most).

I've had that issue with the log-in page, as well. Most instances of the issue have ceased occurring, these days (since about 2014), and the only way I get it to happen, now, is by attempting to post something, after the Forum-activity timer has run out, which prompts a log-in; you then have to "go back", to the page before you were asked for a log-in, and then go forwards, again, to the log-in* (which doesn't mention that it's now an invalid log-in page, nor does it send you to a fresh one, but it gets you in an endless loop of log-in pages, even if you enter your details correctly).


*You have to press the forward button/shortcut, rather than re-trying to post/perform an action that would cause a log-in prompt, again - if you do the latter, it'll just redirect you to the forums, as a non-logged-in user.


As I mentioned, this used to be a common bug, that cropped up in other instances, for me, but this is the last remaining (reproducible) method for getting it, of which I'm aware - however, I'm not sure if that's the same as for others (for reference: I'm using Mozilla).
