Is it just me or are the Captchas on the Alamy site and 'here' becoming increasingly more and more time consuming? They are not quite at a level where they are becoming annoying (I do understand they are needed) but have they not started to become a little too time consuming?

Tried to log in to give this post a greenie a few hours ago but couldn't get past a Captcha  "Unusual traffic from your computer network" message (there isn't).

Finally got in now- says it all really.

Yesterday it took 7 different screens to work through just to get into the forum. Bonkers!!!. One time I gave up altogether. Not so bad today though.

This is one thing that I find very annoying. It's not Alamy quality! To make a point it's just taken me 10 screens to work through to get this far into the Forum. On the rare occasion I login with no screen, and at the other end of the scale I have been as far as 13 screens. Even more infuriating is the quality of some of the screens - some are so dark you cannot distinguish the content. Is this a scheme to reduce traffic into the website I wonder!!!

Moan over but I can't be positive about this when you are trying to run a business.

How strange! I was just thinking how great it's been recently - I haven't been automatically logged out at all for a few days!

I don't agree. They are very annoying and are they really needed? My bank and investment sites don't need them!

 

For me: if I don't get in,  it is one strike and I do something else.

Maybe a simple "I'm not a robot" checkbox"  will be enough.

I agree! Absolute pain in the butt! Hardly ever get through first time, waste of time
