The infamous checkbox CAPTCHAS have been removed from userlookups across Neopia. Instead, your browser will be completing an "invisible" CAPTCHA, essentially checking the box for you. In some cases, you will still
need to "select all images with street signs" to proceed.
It looks like as of writing that Neopet lookups still have the old style checkbox CAPTCHAs in place. We'll make an update if they too go the way of the Badeek
Hey, there's a new goodie bag at the NC Mall, which gives a Glow in the Dark Backdrop.
Wow, progress on the Captcha's. That's a nice birthday surprise!
The tick box wasn't what bothered me. It's having to go through the picture quiz (sometimes several pages of them) every time!!! before I could proceed to the page. That hasn't changed at all.
Also (less so) that linking to a pet lookup couldn't be done by copy/pasting the URL from the lookup itself. You had to go back to the captcha page to find the right link.

I wish we could see the user- and pet lookups offline (i.e. on another browser) again instead
; but if we agree, no more CAPTCHAS!
I go on neopets first thing in the morning. I'm not letting anyone see me on my computer's webcam -- it'd scare the heck out of them!
They'd still require the CAPTCHAS cuz those images don't prove I'm human!
Omg, even with Noscript and Adblock Plus I can visit userlookups again!
@1jediboy: One, I'm going to guess that NoScript would block that and it wouldn't work with my browser/add-on combo. Two, that would likely open up our computers to some major security issues, and three, could be used for espionage. Four, is collecting that information even legal for users under the age of thirteen? Five, what if my computer doesn't have a webcam that works? And, finally, six, what about people who forget to turn their webcam off, leave neopets open, and suddenly some poor staffer is stuck watching a screen with nothing going on? That's not to mention that then I'd feel the need to put on actual clothes while on neopets, instead of surfing the web in my pajamas.

I assume if they did webcam based verification it would just be to check that there was a human when the webcam was asked, I doubt any TNT staffers would be watching. That being said, I don't have a webcam and wouldn't fancy the idea of a staffer watch me scratch random places as I play.
As for NoScript/Adblock, as with the current captchas you'd need to train them to ignore the relevant scripts.
Ehh... hehe... I seem to be getting a lot of feedback for my plan... and it seems my plan is full of holes.
I wasn't really 100% serious about it. It's like a plan for a player DESPERATE to get the CAPTCHAS gone at any expense!
I knew some people wouldn't have webcams,
it does sound kinda seedy, it was kinda more of a joke idea.
Oh well. Back to the drawing board...
