captcha failed to validate
anyone else? I'm unable to enter a lot of my sweeps because of this!

A few yesterday and a lot more today.

I tried to enter a 1x again that didn't submit and sat there with the form and "captcha didn't validate" error.... and was told I already entered.. .. so now I'm really confused...

I don't know if this helps but someone else posted this and it has been working for me. When an answer fades, keep clicking until all that category has been clicked i.e. cars etc. You may have to do it twice but finally it will work - at least so far.

This happens often, and it's not just sweepstakes anymore. I couldn't even get into my email recently due to the captcha failing.

I already do that.. I can almost tell when there is an issue when the pictures fade ever soooo slowly and come back the same way .. normally they will change quite quickly.


I remembered what I did a long time back when I had issues.. I signed out of the google mail account I was logged into and signed into a different one.. no issues on one.. I will try on the rest.. only issue is I have to remember I can't do that on rafflecopter type sweeps that link to your google account.

In chrome if this happens I just clear the cookie from that particular sweep and start over. It will usually be fine after that!
