Attention: Captchator.com service will be discontinued!


#1

From September 2015, Captchator will be unsupported and service may be
discontinued at any time. If you want to set up your own captcha server,
the captchator source code is available on GitHub
(https://github.com/andreas12345/captchator).


#2

Captchator.com service has been discontinued. All captcha verification
requests will return “1” (success).

I think the solution is to setup your own Captchator Server with the link mentioned in the first post.

If you’re looking for a more simple alternative, I’ve used https://rubygems.org/gems/invisible_captcha (https://github.com/markets/invisible_captcha/) and had some success with it.

I don’t know the reason they discontinued the service.

As for the character count thing you mentioned, is it using Captchator or is it another off-topic question?
