    This isn't going to help us Hubbers but may give HP a little more income. I just joined a forum - instead of having a Capcha - they had a small advert that then gave me a phrase to type in - clever way of validating I am a human and making me watch an Ad....

      I've seen one of those - it could work (maybe) for messages sent via the site and for comments posted by visitors.

      Intriguing- I've never seen that before, and it's rather smart! I'll bring it up at our next community meeting.
      Thanks SimeyC! big_smile

        We need the vote buttons in the forums Simone, so we can easily vote up an idea without having to type anything cool

          It's in the queue, Cardisa!

        Hey again SimeyC!

        Looks like this idea, while most welcome (thanks for looking out for more ways in which we might boost our revenue and ability to build more awesome features!!), would not be as lucrative as one might imagine.

        Given the number of captchas on our site, it looks like the amount of money we would actually make from one of these ad-based captcha services would be negligible, so we'll pass for now. Thanks again, though!

      I despise advertisements being forced upon me.  I would probably just back out of the site altogether.  I cannot stand youtube videos that require viewing a 15 second ad before the video.  I do not mind the skip ad option in 5 seconds, but unless I really want to watch the vid, I will not stay for the full ad.

      BTW:  Misleading links that lead to ads are complete nonsense to me.  If I clicked a related search link only to find unrelated ads, I would bounce out completely aggravated at the deception!

        Sadly that's the way the world is going - everywhere you go you are forced to watch Ads - so if you can't beat em, you may as well join em!!!

          With ad blocker and avoiding youtube, you can get by rarely seeing an ad. 

          I personally am happy to have ads on the page and don't use a blocker, but being forced to watch some video, taking 10 minutes because I am still on a slow connection, would be the final straw for me.

            The CAPCHA one was only 5 seconds - didn't bother me - but gave me a phrase to do with the product to type in. Very clever way to get into my mind! Anyone want some Dawn? See - I remembered the Ad several hours later!

          I will not be FORCED to do anything.  Nor do I willingly consent to things which I find disturbing. It will always be my choice on whether or not I will solicit any commercial or public endeavor, as it is yours. 

          I had to install an ad-blocker to view my local paper online.  More and more people will simply install the same software to disregard intrusive advertising.

      Great idea. You are always thinking of new things. That is super, Simey.

    I can't watch ads.  A lot of Internet connections have limited bandwidth/you pay extra for it .... I'd have just left the site.

    Captcha is already leveraging out labor to decode books.  I assume Hubpages gets some consideration for that.   Otherwise I suggest using the simplest system possible to improve access. 

    IMHO I am hear to be a content producer, not a customer.

    Infobarrel uses monetized captchas that DON'T require you to watch a video ad.  The text you type is a brand name.  It might show the logo for Toyota and you just have to type in "toyota."  It's called Solve Media if any webmasters here are interested in using it on their own sites or forums.
