Do you have any problems with reCAPTCHA on the project website?

I was informed that there are problems.

I have examined the information and sometimes the system returns an error to me:

"Your reCAPTCHA response was not correct. Please try again."

You also have problems?

I recognized the problem.

The fix has been implemented: https://github.com/BOINC/boinc/pull/3461

Probably the problems are gone...
You can register new accounts - previously the system returned an error when trying to register...

I just tested reCAPTCHA and it worked.
I'm not sure where the new users come from (ads in profiles)...
Maybe they are manually registered users?
There are not many of them, but this is a problem...

I added for this moment:
<profile_min_credit>1</profile_min_credit>


We'll think about what to do next.

this is not manual registration, this is the work of a bot system, maybe several
the danger of delayed activation of accounts for spam, the possibility of an attack on the server or attempts to capture a domain

possible such actions against bots
- delete profiles and accounts without a connected PC, as well as groups left without these users
- filter black lists of emails at registration
- enable invite code and write it on the start page (AI test)

Unable to join the computational project. The ReCAPTCHA just gives the following error page.

There were problems with the ReCaptcha system.

At this point, I additionally set forum.post_min_total_credit = 1.

Now on the login page for the computational project, there is no reCAPTCHA but also no checkbox for agreeing to terms and conditions, hence get the error

"You have not agreed to our terms of use. Please agree to the terms of use by navigating back to the previous page, in order to create your account"
