    I can't be the only one who experience issues with the new select all street name signs captcha that Google recently added to reCaptcha? This captcha fails about 70% of the time I try to solve it, even though I do select only street NAME signs. The monkeys who are solving captchas seems to select all kinds of shitty signs that are far away from a street name sign and therefore I fail the captcha when I select the correct signs.

    I have noticed that it works best if I only select 3 signs even though it could be 6 street name signs displayed in the captcha. Still, 70% of the time this captcha fails so it's getting on my nerves. Anyone else too?

    i noticed that too and i hate it with all my passion, it's pretty damn retarded, sometimes they put city name signs into the mix too and when you think that you don't have to select those because you're required to select street name signs after all, you cannot be more wrong lol

    thanks google street view for the street name sign pics :)

    Its because your IP or your machine is flagged as a bot - when u solve too much captchas they detects this and starts to show street signs and after that they start to mark them even false when u do it right and if u still do this at the end they will show that all captchas are solved bad even if u solve them good

    So, I just need to change my IP to avoid this kind of captcha?

    I can't guarantee that this is the solution because I have read that newcaptcha is more smart and its not enough just to change IP here and that they track IP and other parameters

    Not even sure what your implication is relative to this information. Nor have I seen this type of captcha work without the correct codes.

    I agree this is the result of some activity you have engaged in OP, and is very likely an IP restriction. That doesn't mean it's going to get fixed just by rotating your IP, but it is worth implementing some simple tactics for maintaining online privacy.

    You must have problem interpreting text then.

    , because there is not even a chance to pass the captcha when it comes to street signs.

    I am also seeing this issue currently, the first submission seems to fail 100% of the time, the second usually working ok but it is very easy to get an IP blocked.

    These are the types of captchas that the posters in this thread are referring to (Select the street signs):

    Most of the time, you should either select 2 or 3 choices, any more than that and I think the algorithm automatically fails you for some reason. I've also been having trouble but once you get the hang of it, it's a lot easier.
