StefanKeller: Re MAPTCHA - ReMAPTCHA - A free, map-based anti-spam service that enhances OpenStreetMap
At last, some tools to stop working for free for Google and contribute to the commons while reducing spam!
@arthurlutzim If you read down on the page it says reMAPTCHA is patented by Google :( ... But under an MIT license? So I'm a little hesitant.
@jiminycricket @arthurlutzim Are you referring to " The ReMAPTCHA is a variation of a reCAPTCHA offered and patented by Google"? Because I think that's just awkward wording. Seems to me like it's "The ReMAPTCHA is a variation of (a reCAPTCHA offered and patented by Google)", not "The ReMAPTCHA is (a variation of a reCAPTCHA) offered and patented by Google"
@arthurlutzim The Heroku app is down, the download asks for a password... but I like the general idea!
@arthurlutzim I love the concept.
Though I have some doubts as to wether this can be made more *user*friendly while being *bot*hostile.
Anything that makes it more accessible and more user-friendly will help bots too, it seems.
I'll have to look into it
@arthurlutzim I love the idea of this but I, as a human (I think), can’t make sense of the sample on that page.
@arthurlutzim oh this is great!
@arthurlutzim the genius part of this is that if someone develops a method to beat the system they've effectively create a useful tool for improving openstreetmap
That's an excellent idea but it's really not user friendly, is it? Questions like "if X type Y else Z" seem really counterintuitive (except maybe for computer scientists)
