Idea: Gateway CAPTCHA

Postby Melfina » 2009-06-02 06:15 pm

In my honest opinion this would be an important feature: the possibility to show a CAPTCHA on the gateway instead of a voting link, so only if the captcha is correct the vote will be counted.

I've found really annoying the use of auto-voters, sites that usually get 5 votes and then on the first day of the month they get around 200, so I think this should be quite helpful to avoid this, though not 100% effective.

Also, if anyone knows in a way of implementing this on the current version, it would also be greatly appreciated. I've searched it before, and tried implementing it myself: it showed the captcha, but couldn't make it not to count the vote if the captcha was incorrect.

Hi Melfina, i dont know if jeremy is considering to put this into the next release or not.
But over at osempire we also recieved quiet alot of this requests.

Maybe in the near future we find time to implement it. A guide will be posted if that happens

A lot of sites actually give their users some reward once amonth, in such cases, you'd expect most votes to come in on day one.
