    Captcha?

    When the hell did these dumb fucks add captcha to lookups?

    Are they anywhere else?

    First time on Neo in awhile. This is ridiculous to the point I don't even wanna try and code anything.

    Whats the point of even putting them lookups?

    The captchas have been around since the beginning of summer, iirc. They are on ULs and Pet Lookups and that's it as far as I know. They can be pretty annoying to deal with but luckily I don't visit a lot of ULs.

    I actually figured they were more places. This doesn't stop me from doing much.

    Theory is to stop bots from collecting account data such as trophies, avatars, pet stats and colors etc for targeting accounts. Side effect is shit ton less lag on the servers since the captchas so I don't mind em too much.

    Just tried using a clickable avatar grabber to make my shell look better...

    Didn't even think about the captcha. I'll find a way to bypass it.
