    Hi Trilogy33,

    Thanks for your interest in our add-on.

    I see that you have the KeyCaptcha add-on installed. Unfortunately, because of the way in which KeyCaptcha installs itself (by directly writing the option list to the database), the callback which is provided by XenForo to add a 3rd-party CAPTCHA option to this list does not run. This means that our add-on (as well as any other human verification add-on which uses this callback) cannot add itself to the list.

    Unfortunately, the only course of action I can provide is to uninstall the KeyCaptcha add-on. Once you have done this, the original option group should be restored, and our option (and any other human verification add-on which uses this XenForo-provided callback) should appear in the list.

    Hi Tyler,

    Thanks for updating this for XF. Are you able to provide any rough figures with regards to what percentage of captcha's displayed on registration pages would be revenue generating? And then what the revenue range is?

    I'm trying to get an idea of how many registration it would take before the $200 payout threshold is reached.

    Could there be any potential registration issues with multiple users from the same IP address registering within a short space of time or even at the same time from different computers on the same network?

    I believe this would mainly be an issue with PPPoE or other proxy users who have their IP change a lot. I've noticed this is very common for users in Singapore specifically.

    I'm not quite sure why they would have an IP check, there are more reliable methods for confirming a user between requests.

    I'm also a bit skeptical about SolveMedia's security, just handing out the answer in plain text:

    tyler how can we monetize it or get revenue from solvemedia?
    can you explain further?

    Please allow me to refer you to one of our knowledge base articles, which should help to answer your question: What sort of payout should I expect?

    We don't believe so. If you believe some of your users are being blocked erroneously, please contact support and we will look into the issue.

    Sure. When utilizing our CAPTCHA unit, a percentage of the creatives displayed to the user are branded advertising creatives (we refer to these as being "revenue-bearing"). When a user successfully solves a revenue-bearing CAPTCHA, the advertiser pays us and we share that revenue with you. It doesn't take any additional work from you once the widget is in place, and there is no cost to sign up.

    For a little more detail, I'll also refer you to this link: What sort of payout should I expect? You can also visit the Publishers section of our website which contains more information as well.

    if one user solves the revenue bearing captch let say ANTIVIRUS company.
    how much will i get profit?
  16. TylerSM

    TylerSM Member

    This depends on the rate the specific advertiser is paying to us and varies from advertiser to advertiser, so it's very difficult to predict. The knowledge base article which I posted has the best information we can give you on this subject.

    Hi tyler

    can you update the solvemedia plugin with
    -USER Q&A and SolveMedia

    that way we can add a user question and solvemedia
    thats a perfect combination :)

    And for italian sites? Are available localized ads?

    Hello all,

    Sorry I haven't caught up on this thread in a little while.

    Implementing a second human verification system is outside the scope of our plugin. We find that using more than one CAPTCHA unit on the same page only serves to frustrate users; moreover, it may not even be possible given the way XenForo plugins work.

    Our unit is able to be localized in a number of different languages, including Italian. Unfortunately, at the current time we do not have any advertisers targeting Italian traffic, though this may change in the future as we expand into new markets.

    @TylerSM I think you guys should update this for 1.2. I'm having a wierd bug on 1.2.x with SolveMedia.

    Thing is, I was using the latest version of SolveMedia, which is 1.0.1

    Some users reported problems with SolveMedia's communication system in xf1.2. I've been able to reproduce what my user commented, and I'll be sending you guys an e-mail.

    I'd love to continue using this plugin, but it doesn't seem like you guys are managing it much.
