Stop using "solve media", it sucks. Use reCAPTCHA instead. Just a view from a site user.

faucets get money from solve media. the don't with recaptcha.

It is pitch black. You are likely to be eaten by a grue.

Solve Media produces a bit of income for the site owners. Faucet sites can't operate at a loss all the time, otherwise they wouldn't exist.

They use it because the owner/admin is paid for the advertising.

Yeah, and the worst part about this is that from some quick searches, it looks like the faucets only get around $0.30-0.35 per 1000 solved captchas. They are basically bothering their users for less than pennies.

I will say that I like the image solving ones more than the "try to decipher this unintelligible text" ones though.

I do find that every once in a while when solvemedia throws one of the multiple choice captchas with the dropdown box at me, those ones never work correctly.  But the other 99% of the time, I prefer the solvemedia ones because they're actually legible.

Solvemedia payment does not meet what users earn from the faucet. It is just like a hindrance to the user which does not get solved most of the time and thereby pushing the user away. So it is better to have other innovative method of earning on faucets over Solvemedia.

At ConLearn.org, we use our home built CAPTCHA on the site.

I personally don't like SolveMedia either as a customer, but as a faucet owner, I see that it is very important (CryptoArrow doesn't use it personally though).
