I run F10 with updates-testing enabled. Yesterday I got the new kernel, and because it is running fine for me I thought I would go to the site https://admin.fedoraproject.org/updates/ and enter a positive karma for it.

No matter what I did, I couldn't get it to take. I have to confess that I'm not sure that I could read the captcha properly, so maybe that was it. I must say that machines must have a hard time with "reading" it when a human can't read it. :-)

I entered my email address, a comment, and checked the radio button "works for me". Entered what I thought the captcha said and kept getting told there was a problem and it couldn't accept my feedback.

What did I miss?  Do I have to register somewhere?

There's a login button hidden at the bottom of the links on the
left-hand side, which lets you log in with your FAS account (for about
fifteen minutes, whereupon it times out and you have to login again). I
didn't find it easy to find either. :)

Thanks for the response. I don't have a FAS account, so that option wouldn't work. I went back and this time it took my comment. I enlarged the page until it was huge so that I could decode the captcha. :-) It's the ambiguous letters that get me, the f/t and the i/j with their camoflage coloring and distortion to throw off the scanner.

Computer vision must be improving markedly which is a good sign. Evolution in action. Let's up the ante till they can recognize ripe fruit from green with partial images and then we can use their systems in fruit picking robots. ;-) Show a picture of an apple or cherry or broccoli and ask the user to enter the name in the verification box. :-)
