Issue #2419 has been updated by bill-auger.
Status changed from unconfirmed to not-a-bug
an accessibility issue would be allowing some people to do something in a way that prevents others from doing the same thing - in this case that _something_ is to acquire a nickname on the bug tracker; and that puzzle will not prevent anyone from doing that - all that anyone needs to do is ask - the alternative is to require everyone to ask - that is the case now; and that is how trisquel has been doing it for years - if the puzzle is effective at all, it will be an indubitable improvement
the important thing is that it will impede bots - if it turns out to not be effective at that goal, then it will go away and self-registrations will simply be closed again, until a better solution is found, or perhaps indefinitely
i will change the word 'assets' in the source code to 'blobs', if it pleases the Great Gnu - now that i think of it, i like that better
Bug #2419: [CAPTCHA] Are you serious?
* Author: temporaryuser
* Status: not-a-bug
* Priority: bug
I have seen the CAPTCHA on registration page. This CAPTCHA is unacceptable.
It _will_ make registration longer. It _will not_ prevent robots from registering on the website.
If you will fix this issue, there are more issues:
Cards are stored here: https://labs.parabola.nu/match_game/assets/cards.png. This image can be used to bypass CAPTCHA.
Directory name is _assets_, which is not allowed by GNU. https://www.gnu.org/philosophy/words-to-avoid.html#Assets
There is '.' after '?' in 'would you?.'.
