Hello All,

Last night I submitted three images at once, which is rare for me. Before the submission would go through, I had to choose all the squares with kitty cats, to prove I was human. Is this new  (possibly to weed out problem accounts)? Or is it just the first time I've been subjected to the process?

Thanks and have great days!

It's a new "feature" as of yesterday. An Adobe rep in the Discord channel said it's  something new they're trying out. I suspect that it's meant to thwart bots which some AI contributors have designed so that they can submit massive quantities of assets.

Thx I suspected that might be the goal, which makes me--and probably--everyone else so happy!

I've only been asked once for verification (also cats) even after logging out and back in. So perhaps once you've been verified, maybe cookies or IP numbers or however all the underpinnings work) stores the information and you won't be asked again unless from a different computer or network? We'll find out soon enough.

It can be a from-time-to-time question. 😉

When I submitted an image yesterday from my iPad, I encountered the captcha "cats". Today from my PC, no cats. So I think you might be correct in that it is once per IP address.

It's the same account! I would implement that on an account bases, with some random factor in, so that the spammer bots can't get the pattern. But with some distance between the appearances, so that the human uploaders don't get annoyed too often.

That's great news, as it will force the bot users to do manual uploads, from time to time.
