    the new captcha feature for proxy users is rely a pain
    i am using Tor proxy
    after i logged in to mdl - every time my IP change - i must solve captcha
    if this happens if i want submit a posting, most time i loose the whole posting :weep:

    I can understand that you have to do something against phishing, but to annoy the user with captcha is not the solution

    please give feedback

    I've changed the challenge type for Tor users, so it should be less of a problem for you now :)

    In the future we might have to change the setting again if a forum troll abuses Tor.

    THX a lot for the fast feedback
    i hope this works (i get a 'browser check message')
    just for info
    i don't use the tor-browser
    i only use the internal tor-proxy port for my firefox, IE-explorer etc
    i hope your new ml-settings works to for this kind of connection

    regards vanelle

    How about creating your post in notepad etc, then if as you post it you get caught by the alligator
    you won't have lost your post. Just hit it again.

    Using the Lazarus extension on my Fox. Saved my bacon couple o' times. Recovers text and entire forms.

    Captcha solving is what you get for using s**tty Cloudflare. Another thing is almost nothing works anymore without third-party servers (ajax.cloudflare.com). Not a single bit better than ajax.googleapis.com. :death:
