    Post Captcha Encyclopedia! Look here first (or second)!

    Instead of relying on some forum user that will happen to help you within the 2-minute timer the captcha has before refreshing, you should try to solve it yourself, and this thread is here to help you with JUST THAT!.

    Just as a forewarning, this thread is SPECIFICALLY to assist in the captcha component as well as a "help & support center" for captcha-related problems (post for help here, not in your own thread!). If you need assistance in the entire registration process, AIDA's got it covered

    Also, do read this entire OP - it'll save many headaches to come

    Methods of attack - Your captcha-rsenal
    A brief rundown:
    1. Type 1's refer to copying the japanese characters and pasting them into captcha. Tedious and tricky as it requires frequent window switching and finding for the characters you need, but no learning required! (Recognition will greatly help, however)
    2. Type 2's refer to alternative methods of directly inputting the japanese characters, such as through handwriting recognition, altering keybindings to input one character at a time or using another typewriter. Recognition will help, but more time is required for preparation and familiarity with the tools provided. Much faster than simple copy-paste.
    3. Type 3's refer to tools that give a little bit more help outside of captcha. Broader and less specialised, it's more so designed to help you finish the entire registration form to get more time for captcha, but it does have captcha assistance. Best done in combination with type 1/2

    Type 1-A: Copy-pasta

    Type 1-B: Copy-Pasta; Organised by shape
    See spoiler↓
    Spoiler!


    Type 2-A : Online Typewriter
    Here is a website with buttons that act as typewriters for the hiragana script of japanese. Just click to type, then copy (the copy button doesn't work for me, so just select>ctrl+C if you experience the same problem)

    Type 2-B : DIY Typewriter **Experimental & likely difficult; Actual results may vary per user**
    See spoiler↓
    Spoiler!

    Type 2-C: DIY Handwriting recognition (may not work for all users)
    See spoiler↓
    Spoiler!


    Type 3 - Browser assisted
    Transzilla Kion has put up a handy Google Chrome extension which makes the entire registration process, login (to website) and Personal Info sections so much easier to do! It even integrates the hiragana typewriter linked above into the registration page! Check it out!

    COMMON MISCONCEPTIONS/MIX-UPS
    Read if you're getting confused between look-alike characters:
    (These are more like testimonials, heh)
    Spoiler!

    If you wish to succeed in this pesky captcha's, PAY ATTENTION TO DETAIL!

    Need some practice?
    Spoiler!


    Finally, if you still fail for whatever reason, get assistance for your captcha here (First time to check when someone responds, 2nd time - refresh your captcha and HASTALAVISTA)
    A word from the OP:
    Spoiler!

    While I appreciate your help and understand your feelings and feel the same, it's not like anybody who should will ever look at this thread.

    I think this should be made a sticky.

    Having the Hiragana right there would be useful for peeps.

    True, but at the same time this (should) save them the trouble of having to make an account on this forum JUST for the sake of asking for help on captcha's.
    Instead they can forever remain lurkers :P

    That's assuming they don't give up entirely because they can't make out the extra detail that is obscured by the process.

    As far as it goes, this should be enough, but will mostly likely fall on deaf ears (or eyes) as most that lurk don't tend to read stickies or bump extremely old threads.

    Yeah, it's a great thread. Though I think that you forgot everybody's favorite elusive character: . No idea if it's needed for captcha, but it did make my head hurt back when I didn't know of its existence, so there.
