Lightbulb Replace CAPTCHA!

I loved the #BeatTheBots campaign that the Foo Fighters created for their ticket sales. Everyone strains their eyes trying to figure out the squiggly letter and number combinations to show that they're not a bot, but imagine a better way with this CAPTCHA replacement: http://playthr.us/1rOrwlw.

Just click on any of the "Buy Tickets" buttons, and a game will appear. It gives users a better experience than CAPTCHA, and it reinforces the brand message! This could be used for reducing bot ticket sales or reducing spam in forums!

You know that the ticket agency handles that, not us. We didn't sell the tickets. Livenation or Ticketmaster is who you should talk to.

Thanks!

Hey Jill!

You can still apply this to foofighters.com though! I noticed I had to do that in order to post on the forum, it would cut down on bots there as well!

Technically the web guys could do that yes but since any tout/bot could bypass it entirely by simply going to the ticket sites directly It'd be a waste of time. Thanks for the suggestion though.

We used to have a bot problem here but since we implemented the simple human questions on sign-up we've had very few, so we're good on that front as well.
