Spambot Fighter is now Fun, Fast, and Cute

Replaces the hated twisty-letter CAPTCHA with a fun, fast mini-game that matches a site's visual theme

PR Newswire

BRISBANE, Australia, Aug. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Angry internet users have recently stepped up their campaigns against those ugly, annoying "CAPTCHAs" with twisty letters. Riding a huge wave of attention, the creators of the spammer-blocking mini-game called FunCaptcha are now offering a free visual makeover to match the site's look and logo. This alternative to the twisty letter puzzle stops spammers without inflaming user anger, and won't ruin the site's carefully-built visual theme.


FunCaptcha grabbed a lot of publicity after it was featured in game-development site Polygon and then picked up on the Technology page of NBC News. This playful little activity replaces the much-hated CAPTCHA that asks users to "prove their humanity" by reading and typing ugly, twisty letters. A web site suffers significant loss of user conversion by using a twisty CAPTCHA, but without it, spammers will wreak havoc. The FunCaptcha alternative requires no typing, which is especially nice on a mobile device. Unlike many CAPTCHA alternatives, it provides a very strong defense against spammers.

Striking while the iron is hot, the creators of FunCaptcha have just disclosed a secret webpage where webmasters can get in the queue for a free customization job. The little puzzle will take on the site's color scheme and logo, and even show a final message or image to welcome the new user to the site. For a limited time, all fees for this custom work are waived. The sooner a site signs up, the better its chances of getting to the top of the queue, so webmasters, get on this free offer now.

"We're super pleased that FunCaptcha is getting such great attention, so we decided to up our game a bit by responding to requests for more choices with the graphics," says Matthew Ford, the designer of FunCaptcha. "Getting rid of ugly, twisty CAPTCHAs is more important to us than making a quick buck, so we're cutting all our fees down to zero for as long as we can. Humanity, you can thank us later. Spambots, you can die in a fire." It's too bad that spammers want to ruin everyone's fun on the web, but the fight to battle the bots just got a lot better looking.
