Was just multi-tabling a few ring games when my chat box was replaced with a word verification and I was instructed to enter the word within a certain period of time.

My word was 'dingoes'. It appeared on all my tables but just had to enter it once to have the regular chat returned.

First time I've come across this.

Anyone else?

Perhaps it's a random verification program and your name got selected. It might even have been related to the number of tables played. Over a certain number, and if played over a certain time, the system runs the check. Considering the computer technology, I'm surprised the bots haven't devised a means of reading the chat boxes, for just that reason.

I know a guy that has a dingo. A real damn dingo. As far as I know, it has not eaten any babies.

Thanks all.

Hadn't seen nor heard of it in the two years I've been playing here.

Not sure how it's triggered but guess that's just the way dingoes.

It happened to me when i was playing a single table. Seems to happen after an hour or so playin same table and not chatting with any other players. Just a security measure to verify your a person and not some program running. Just like web page verification programs.

It has never happened to me, but I could easily miss it. The chat window is not always open, as I am writing notes, checking stats and info. What happens then? Does Stars figure you for a bot just because you are not reading chat? Just asking.
