Opera - bot checks (in General)

QBsutekh137 August 8 2006 10:29 AM EDT

Since upgrading Opera, my first bot checks go right through with an press of the ENTER key in some cases. Early on (started a few weeks back), I even ENTERed twice through and got a two-strikes-you-are-out. Overall it has cost me over 100K in the past couple of weeks.

I have seen admins post the mis-spellings, etc. on failed bot checks before, so can an admin check my failed checks for the past couple of weeks and see what CB thinks is being sent as the typed-in answer? From my end, it appears as if I am entering absolutely nothing, and yet the form does not warn me with the "Must enter 3-4 letter response". It just fails. I would love to know what is going on, since maybe I can turn off some sort of auto-fill in Opera so that it starts working right again. Thanks in advance.

Yeah, it looks like Opera forgets about that 'Must enter 3-4 letter response' popup.

Ah, so they are empty? It has to do with page-loading, I think. If I wait for the page to fully, and I mean fully, load, then I get the popup (at least I have before). I was assuming Opera was popping in the previous response or something automatically... Guess I will just need to stick with Firefox. *smile*

Thanks for your help, bartjan.

I noticed this myself a while back, it was one of the couple issues I saw with opera, I don't think Sut noticed that C, enter doesn't work, simply because he's a down, enter kind of guy.

One of his failed answers is a single 'C'...

I sit corrected, maybe it just doesn't work on OS X or something...

The "C" must be a coincidence -- "C" enter doesn't work on Opera as far as I have seen. I have to arrow down. Not to mention, only a very small portion of my fight list involves clan folks. "C"-enter wouldn't do a whole lot for me.
