Thank you very much for commenting here.
It really means a lot.
Especially since I know you have other things on your mind at the moment.

No matter what problems CL is going through, I am happy to stick with it and bear a few temporary unpleasantnesses. CL is definitely worth it.
But getting a heads-up like this is important to me because it lets me know the people in charge do care, about us and the site.

So, as I said, thank you, with my sincerest gratitude.

Hello Friends. Yes, the captcha for comments and disabling of links is frustrating... but we're fighting an unpleasant fight against spammers that have had free reign to spam the crap out of this site the past couple years... also who likely shut it down for a couple weeks with a DDoS attack. We've implemented some heavy handed things like the captcha to combat the spam... this isn't a long term solution, but thoughtful solutions that allow creative good intentioned folks to continue sharing the love, while preventing spammers who have a ton of resources, is not quick. It was only a several months ago that I took the site back from Autodesk and I'm working with a team that will have the resources to start making improvements and helping this awesome group of people get back to the community they love.

Thank you for the update Darius.

I find the captcha thing slightly frustrating (mostly because I am part robot on my mother's side), but I'm delighted with the reduction in spam.

Now if you could just make a captcha algorithm that uses Colourlover patterns instead of photos, we'd be all set....click all the patterns with butterflies, click the florals, etc :)

This made my day. Thank you so much, Bubs! ♡♡♡♡♡

Hey Darius - thanks for all the work to get the spammers under control. So happy to hear there are things in the works! I am enjoying working in new ways on CL while things are being implemented.

Wildfire2013 - No one can post any badges or links at this time. Just comments (text). That is part of the process of getting rid of the spammers. We all miss seeing the
badges. But they'll be back at some point! :)

Hi Darius,
Thanks for your efforts in combatting the spam epidemic here at the site. I'm a web developer dealing with legacy code myself, so understand that your fight is a though one. Please keep up your efforts, and hopefully this situation will be beat back.

I am currently not able to post anything on the profile pages (including plain text comments) since the 17th, and have not been getting the capcha for a while, too. It may be a bug with Safari, but I'll keep trying.

Thanks again, and good luck!

Thank you from me as well, Darius! We're all plugging for things on this site to turn out for the best. Hopefully this bumpy part of the road is over soon.

Thank you for giving us an update on the site.

It seems some people are having more difficulty than others. I can post badges in forums again but can't post on profiles. I just tested Photocopa and can use it and Basic Palette Maker. Copaso is still out of commission for me. Using the latest Firefox at 32 bit if that helps.

I literally can't do anything other than post on forums and make basic palettes. I've tried every browser I have installed (Firefox, Chrome, Windows Edge, Internet Explorer) and none of them work. I'm having withdraw!

I can't make palettes,colors nor patterns. When will this time of crisis be over. I'm so tired of it. I won't leave tho. Even tho I have thought about it.

ColourARTZZ74

I still can't make new patterns or colours, but I won't leave this site, this site has helped me grieve for my Mum's passing so hopefully one day this site can go back to it's normal self and I can make patterns again and say thankyou to all have liked my patterns too :)

Thanks for the update Darius. Hopefully a solution is found soon! Best of luck!

Thanks, Darius, and all the CL crew, for making this site a better, and safer, place! But without being able to create palettes and colors, it's just not CL!!! Part of that is playing the group games where we post badges, that makes posting links from other sites. IF we could, could you make a way for us to create CL badges at this site? That would be GREAT! This way we wouldn't have to turn to sites like notepad, etc., to make them. Can't wait til you find a more long term solution. Also, the eCaptcha takes a long time to load, too. There have been multiple times I've had to click on them and once I do it's erased my comments or I can't load a comment. I'm not sure why. It could be because I have an earlier Chrome browser? Oh, well. I just want to get back on my CL and play like normal again :-(

clearcreek6

I agree. I haven't been on because I know that I won't get to do anything. I really hope you can change that.

I googled 'Google Chrome color picker addon. I don't use Chrome, so can't vouch for these.

first, I found a lot of words on Colorzilla, which seems to have a lot of advanced features people might or might not need.
I looked in the Chrome web store for extensions, and I found Color Picker, which seems perfect, and/or Eyedropper, which also sounds good. Both have pretty good star ratings.

Also, if you're technical, there appears to be a color picker built in to the chrome browser already, available in
the html analysis toolbar.
