Glitch with a Captcha

I had this happen yesterday and today with this same captcha. I thought to take a screen shot to show &elitcodex this time.

Edited to insert the pic so it would be larger.

Do you see how the video has ended but they give no actual words to enter into the box? The words just never show up. Both times I had to use the little arrow to get another video before I could move on. Not sure what's wrong with this particular ad, or if you can even take out just one video, but I thought you'd like to know it was happening.

Also, the video ad that comes up in the left hand bottom corner showed up when I went to do this article. It shows up quite often for me. I'd say 8 out of 10 times I open any page the ad shows up.

I think that's all for today...lol. Good luck fixing everything.

I am curious, did it go through when you got a new video and typed in the code?

Yep, when I had it give me another movie, it gave me the words to enter and worked fine.

I haven't faced not having the words to type show up. But after I type them I get an error meesage and have to try again - especially if I had added photos. Thank God for the Blue button.

Yeah, I had that happen once today as well. I know I typed it correctly, but I had to redo it anyway.

I've had similar problems.

Yes I get that almost every time...usually have to submit twice before it goes through..

Seems like the captcha stuff is really a mess these days.

I've not had that happen, but some things on Persona Paper have me a bit confused. However, I know, it is a start up site, so I'm waiting on things. I know it'll atke a bit of time.

What has you confused?

bridgetidelaney wrote on August 2, 2014, 1:01 PM

Submitting articles. Only four of the articles I submitted are showing on my profile page. I was trying to watch the count and it said that it was always okay. However, it seems that I had gone up to 17 articles rather than 15. Still, I thought it would've just told me that I was over the limit.

It is showing me a bunch for you in the activity feed right now. You are only supposed to be able to post an article every ten minutes, and then only up to 15. Could be a glitch.

Thanks for telling me. I had read the info, but somehow missed out on the every ten minutes thing.

That's odd. I haven't seen a video captcha before. If I get something like that, I'll just click the refresh button for another captcha as I wouldn't want to bother watching a video just to be able to type something on the text box. How long is the video? But I have experienced seeing a blank captcha where there was nothing to type; clicking the refresh button fixed it though by showing a new captcha to type.

That particular video is pretty long, the longest I've seen.

FreyaYuki wrote on August 3, 2014, 3:01 PM

Ah, I see. Did you watch the entire video then? Maybe you could have just refreshed the page or captcha box? I wouldn't want to watch such a long video especially if I don't even know what it's going to be about. Sounds like it can really waste a person's time.

I just had it give me another captcha. That worked fine.
