    I've looked at the code: it's both compact and very clean, especially the Javascript with a nice use of JqueryUI. Congratulations!

    Do you think it will be possible to use your method with (and not instead) ReCAPTCHA or Questions/Answer methods?

    Thank you for your comment and evaluation addon :)

    As for your question, in the current version of the addon a multi-use spam checks are not implemented. I do not see reason in this. Why make things difficult for the user?

    You've got a point ;) I just wanted to continue to use the Question&Answer protection (which would work very well if some bots didn't specifically target XenForo) and to increase the protection with your addon which is so simple to use to register.

    I will try it anyway on my active board this week :)

    can you change the phrase qaptcha_lock from "Locked: the form can not be sent." to "Locked: you can not submit the form until completely slide the cursor up to the right." for further explanation of the action to perform (or better descriptive phrase)?
    It looks like:

    May I suggest to change this line?
    PHP:
    $extraChoices['QapTcha'] = new XenForo_Phrase('qaptcha_selected');
    To:
    PHP:
    $extraChoices['QapTcha'] = array(
    'label' => new XenForo_Phrase('qaptcha_selected'),
    'value' => 'QapTcha_Captcha_QapTcha'
    );
    That way you could move the "library/XenForo/Captcha/QapTcha.php" file under it's own addon folder, for example "library/QapTcha/Captcha/QapTcha.php" instead of mixing them into the XF core library. Other than that I think you'd just need to change the class name from XenForo_Captcha_QapTcha to the value of the $extraChoices.

    It's also "wrong".

    To Author: do you mind if I go over everything and make the code more how it is meant to be done with XenForo? I want to use this add-on but won't without modifying it anyway so may as well tell you why...

    Loving the helpful feedback and code suggestions for serene in here.

    Perhaps send the patch(es) to author for inclusion and version update?

    Yeah I will do that but the rest of the look of the code is that of a higher standard than most around here so was thinking I should explain my changes as well.

    Would you share it with us too, since it appears there has been no update from the author?

    To the Admins who use this. Does it really stops more SPAM Registrations?

    Since I've been using this addon with this one, I don't have spam anymore.

    You're NOT a GUEST. It is complex to activate this feature.

    How can I even land on the registration page without being a Guest? Of course I'm a guest.

    Files are in correct path? Contents of 'upload' folder must be in your root XenForo forum (js to js folder, library to library folder, and styles to styles folder).

    How do I enable this after install?
    The Add-On is installed and Active, but I cannot see where to enable/select it is a the captcha option??
    I go to /admin.php?options/list/usersAndRegistration but still only have the option for KeyCaptcha, ReCaptcha, and Q&A. The latter (Q&A) is currently selected, but when visiting the /register/ page I still only see the Q&A, not this qaptcha
