I'm looking for an alternative to Google-hosted reCaptcha for a new publicly-accessible Gitea instance I'm standing up. Can you provide details on integrating this with Gitea, or can you provide any info no the non-Google captcha ths site uses? Thanks!

Hi, this Gitea instance is using the default built-in CAPTCHA:

[service]
...
ENABLE_CAPTCHA = true
...

It doesn't seem to actually block bots somehow, I got a bunch of bouncing account activation/confirmation emails today.

@skylarmt, thanks for the great work.

Just wondering whether the bypass of the captcha by bots has remained still or another self-hosted captcha was used instead to address the issue? Thanks and cheers,

Hi, I worked around the whole bots signing up problem by disabling direct registration. The only way to make an account here is by signing in with GitLab, GitHub, or OpenID. Bots don't do that so I haven't had any problems since!

@skylarmt Thanks for elaborating your workaround.
