    in complete agreement with you lol, was just describing why the math problem is there but dont understand why it isnt popping on mobile since that is where you were playing at the time.

    It should not be working like that, I've let the developers know (I actually let them know yesterday but forgot to reply, sorry!).

    Not sure if others are having this problem but on kong none of the kano/apps games are appearing in the search anymore. Not sure of the exact day this started but within the past couple weeks im pretty sure.

    I had Smack confirm that the captcha is not forced on mobile, so it should not impeded your ability to see listings. Smack mentioned that what you are seeing is the Hitlist delay rather than the catpchas making you miss out on mobile listings.

    Viking Clan looks to be back, and we're working on getting PC and ZS restored. Thanks for the head's up.

    Hmmm. So I play on mobile app, see lots of hit lists. Then nothing. And nothing. And more nothing. I go check kanoplay on my laptop and there's a math question. I'm not accessing HL there. Didn't even have the page loaded. So how's that happening?

    If the math question appears because there's too much "refreshing" action going on, how could it appear on the web browser if I'm not playing there? I don't even try for HL on web since mobile web went away. I only use the mobile app on my phone.

    And it works fine until it doesn't. And then no lists show up. And then there's a math question on kanoplay.

    And if the math question appears to stymie bots or scripts, why wouldn't it appear on mobile app?

    All I know is what actually happens. And what happens is, after I catch a few bounties on mobile app on my phone, a math question will appear on the web browser. Which I have to answer on Facebook or I will get stuck in an endless loop on kanoplay.

    Why do you have to answer it on Facebook? I just answered one on Kanoplay Server 1 just fine. I solved the math question and clicked Continue and the hitlist showed back up.

    As for why you are seeing the captcha on Desktop and not on Mobile is because the mobile app does not have support for these captchas. However, after a certain amount of activity on the Hitlist is passed your account is flagged to show the captcha. It doesn't matter if this activity originated from Mobile or Desktop, our tracking treats it as one and the same.

    1) Because as I stated in an earlier post, if I answer the question on Kanoplay, it sends me to FB to answer the question but first it serves up the "allow game to post to Facebook" message. Then it loops. Because I answer no. I will not answer Yes to post on FB. ** If I go to lcn on FB, I can answer the math question with no request to post. Seems like a glitch to me.

    2) Maybe I need more to drink but what? Mobile app doesn't support captcha. OK. But after a certain amount of activity on HL on mobile app, my account will be flagged to show captcha. WTH. How am I supposed to answer it on mobile app if it doesn't show up? It's fine if I am home, I can pop open my laptop to check for captcha but this is very illogical. If people play on mobile, and that activity can trigger a flag, then you should be able to address that flag on mobile.

    That is strange. There is nothing about the captcha that should try to post to FB.

    You don't have to answer it on mobile at all. Mobile is not blocked by the captcha and it is not impeding your game play.

    But it is. I don't see the captcha on mobile but after some time, I also see zero targets. And if I go to my laptop and crack it open to the web browser, there's a math question. And if I answer the math question, voila, targets re-appear on my mobile app hitlist.

    I know to do this because if I have Lounge chat open, I can see people posting bounties. And if I see bounties in Lounge, but no targets on hitlist, I know there's a math question.

    I only do hitlist on mobile app. So if captcha isn't on mobile, and you aren't looking at # of repeat actions on mobile, why is there a math question waiting for me on the web browser version?

    FancyPants How many bounties you get on mobile app, before this even 'so-called' occurs?
