Incorporating Lifeviewer in CAPTCHA

Post by GUYTU6J » September 1st, 2019, 1:18 pm

I feel the urge to change our CAPTCHA process in new user's registration to the forums. Now I have an idea that something along these lines may be more effective than the old question "What is the name of the smallest spaceship in Conway's Game of Life?"
1. portrait a L-tetromino with Lifeviewer.
2.tell the user to change to edit state. One click is required.
3. tell the user to change one of the cell's state so that it becomes the smallest spaceship in CGoL. One more click is required.
4. tell the user to run the pattern by clicking on the play button.
5. check if the pattern works.
Skimmed to: Soup search results Pg59
To be done: butter synthesis
Why do others have so much time posting around?

[Idea for how to make the user make a glider]
Then it can ask the question:
"what is this called?"
Glider
