system date also works with the long system date?

dunbarxx via use-livecode
Hi friends,

quick question, see subject, just to be sure.
Maybe someone can confirm this.

----------------------------------------------------
Problem, LC on ANDROID still does not support the system date,
so sorting by date in a datagrid does not work for non-english dates.

This just one of the inconveniences resulting from this missing feature

Who also thinks this SHOULD work on Android (4 years after the confirmed report),
please consider to add comment here:

Best

LiveCode Pseudo Captcha?

dunbarxx via use-livecode
Hi there,

I wanted to know if anyone has created a
Captcha type solution just using LiveCode?

(I am not a fan of Javascript as many users
turn it off for security reasons.)

I’m thinking some kind of pictures oriented
approach might be fun, but I am also wondering
what the best approach might be if I have to
roll my own version.

Any thoughts, suggestions, or ideas for
such a LiveCode server solution?

Thanks,

Rick

I haven't, but I used a regular form with two radio buttons. At first it
said:

Please show us you are human:
x I am a human
x I'm a robot

Within 24 hours I received spam from a bot. So I changed it to:

Please choose the correct answer:
x I am a mindless automaton
x I think, therefore I am

And in the last several years I haven't had a single bot find the form.
The key, I believe, is to avoid any use of bot keywords like "human",
"person", "robot", "bot" or anything else similar. The above looks like
an unimportant picklist and they either ignore it or can't parse it.

A friend copied my form to his website and last I heard he hasn't had a
bot hit yet either.

Re: LiveCode Pseudo Captcha?

We had a math question that was randomly generated.

What is the result of <single digit integer> <operation + - or *><single digit integer>?

And for answers we would include the three answers that used the three possible operations. The question was in words, the answers were digits.

Seemed to work for us.

Nice!

I had also toyed with the idea of
radio buttons for multiple choice
questions and answers combined
perhaps with a date picker.

Any other ideas?

Thanks,

Rick

Re: LiveCode Pseudo Captcha?

dunbarxx via use-livecode
Using LiveCode server, I created 10 questions with obvious answers and
call them randomly

Does Cow two or four Feet (type 2 or 4) ______
Can a baby fly an airplane? (type "yes" or "no") ________
Can whales climb trees? (type "yes" or "no")
The color of grass is orange or green (type "orange" or "green" ________

data validation on back end is easy, it assumes a minimum typing skill,
for the longer answers, but then, they have that, or they could not fill
in the form

That works well here, forms not hacked in 6 years. (some form on web for
6 years or more)

Re: LiveCode Pseudo Captcha?

Hi Sannyasin,

I like your questions!

I decided that a pull-down menu
for answers to questions might be
something a computer would find
difficult to do as the position for the
answer is different each time.

Thank you for the suggestions.

Rick
