ReCaptcha will became chargeable

As Google ReCaptcha will became chargeable, it should be nice to use an alternative like hCaptcha in place.

But how easy is it to switch from Re* to h* ? I suppose it need someone working on a new mod ?

No need to use an external service to generate captcha.

Ok, fine. So if wanted, I could use hCaptcha tomorrow without any modification of fluxbb?

Re: ReCaptcha will became chargeable

No need to use reCaptcha. No need to use hCaptcha.
They are easily made by robots.
Already have a ready-made solution for hCaptcha automation https://zennolab.com/discussion/threads … dax.77084/

Use your unique registration protection solution.
The more unique the solution, the less likely it is to receive spam.

Example:
reCaptcha http://punbb.informer.com/forums/regist … gree=Agree
Before I started blocking email domains of spammers, ~ 10 to ~ 100 spammers were registered per day.
After I started blocking domains, there were a few spammers per week.
reCaptcha does not perform its functions.

How did you do that?  Does your version of FluxBB do it automatically or would an existing mod need to be added to it?

Re: ReCaptcha will became chargeable

This is standard functionality for FluxBB/PunBB. To block the entire email domain, at the time of blocking the user, instead of his address (user@example.com), set only the domain (example.com).
In the form of a ban in the comment to the Email field, it is written about this.
