I think Wowhead deserves a revenue generating idea, so I approve of this.The advertising should be as uninvasive as possible - no sounds, no video - and the new CAPTCHA system shouldn't take longer than the previous one.But I will likely resume my premium acct soon so it doesn't really matter to me.

Sounds good, hopefully it doesn't move us away from site, or have any problems with people actually entering the advertisements leading to viruses etc..... or even on mouseovers :)
I find it hard to believe that the technology isn't there to get rid of captchas altogether for registered (and somehow validated) users. I mean, people have (mostly) static IPs, no?To directly awnser the question: I've had no problems with the current system. It seems pretty lenient to be honest - sometimes I've been unable to decipher a letter or two, but it seems to accept it anyway. Any captcha is fine really, I don't mind typing whatever you want, I understand it's a decent spam blocker.
I'm fine with the ad-based CAPTCHA as long as it's not a video ad.CAPTCHA: liewev Newstead
lurgical Acknows?Anyway, I don't have a problem with the system being used now, but I have seen counter systems and posting systems that use different images and a "what is this?" type: thrall" or a "answer this question" 2+2=? type 4. I don't know what systems those are, but they're easy to me.I dunno, the ad thing... maybe I'd have no problem with it, if it reduced ads elsewhere on the site. Typing a whole sentance... does it HAVE to be case sensitive, do I have to find the correct punctuation? While I like encouraging people to learn where the buttons on their keyboard are... (yeay trade's horrible grammar!) I don't think it's necessary, especially for multiple posters (yes, my own punctuation needs work, lemmealone!)
what happens if you have ad block?
I like the new idea. :)
Perfectly fine with the ad CAPTCHAs since they'll bring some more revenue to the site and making it better for all of us.
How about no. I like the concept in that it creates an easy CAPTCHA, but I really don't think it's ethical to ask users to reinforce advertising slogans in their memory in order to post.
I would accept it if:
