The Spires Scoop - New reCaptcha

March 10, 2020

 

The Spires Scoop team are continuously working on improving the user interface and the practicality of the site. To improve user experience, we have added a reCaptcha option to our 'sign up to updates' option. 

 

NOTE: The sign to email updates is not available on the mobile edition of The Spires Scoop, to sign up please use the website on desktop for now. 

 

What is reCAPTCHA and how does it work?

 

Whenever you sign up to the email campaign updates, the lightbox will feature a reCaptcha option to help remove any spam. This reCaptcha has been embedded into the signing up form, to prevent any spam. The reCaptcha helps authenticate users when signing up; a decision as to whether the submission of the form was completed by a human or AI.
