 Captcha Changes
#
As a response to an aggressive increase of spam in 'Guest' enabled forums -- reported by our community and our own logging mechanisms -- we have implemented the friendly checkbox-style reCAPTCHA unit.

While we are not the biggest fans of reCAPTCHA, it has now become necessary because of spammers mass targeting active forum's guest-enabled areas.

Currently reCAPTCHA is enabled only for jcink.com, jcink.net, and jfbs.net subdomains. The reason for this is that reCAPTCHA requires each individual domain owner to add their domains to their account with a unique special key.

If you utilize a domain name it will default back to the regular (weak) captcha system. Should you have a spam problem at the moment and have a custom domain, please reach out to me and I will add you to our reCAPTCHA whitelist for the time being. We're developing a solution for domain owners to simplify this process.

At this time reCAPTCHA is being trialed by us over the next few days to see how effective it is. If it proves to be highly effective overall, we will implement it in other logical areas as well replacing the existing captcha.

We thank you for your patience and appreciate your attention while we continue to fight and hopefully defeat the spam!

We have added reCaptcha to the registration page as of today.

For this time it is only for those with non-custom domains, same as guests. If our trial of reCaptcha continues to go well, we will add the option for domain owners to utilize it.

The reCaptcha trials have been highly successful so far.

We have added domain names now to the reCaptcha for guests and are testing this setup now. For now, as a domain owner, you do not need to do anything as we have found a work-around to the issue mentioned earlier.
