@switchingsocial@mastodon.at It's really difficult to find good alternatives which are open source.Most times they're either stupid text captchas or closed source.Here are some alternatives,not all of them perfect but maybe acceptable:
- captcheck.netsyms.com I just found out about it.It's open source and works with icons,so it's fast and easy to solve.
- wiki.hsr.ch/StefanKeller/wiki. It's based on OpenStreetMap and improves the map data by solving captchas,so it's a win-win situation.It's also open source but unfortunately the git isn't public so you have to drop the author a email (please let me know about the response if you do)
- github.com/Lokno/click-captcha Is what I used on my old,proprietary sites and it was really cool.Just click on the circle and you're finished.It's open source and selfhosted.
- pluscaptcha.com Is what I currently use.Unfortunately it's closed source but it seems to be a small hobby project so privacy shouldn't be that bad there.
- keycaptcha.com Closed source but free and looks like that's also not a big company.I somehow trust the smaller ones much more.Very simple to solve.
- geetest.com/en/ Closed source and made by a Chinese company.Maybe not the best option but at least it's simple to solve and user-friendly so it's also not the worst.
- phpcaptcha.org A basic open source and selfhosted text captcha.Looks ugly but is still way less frustrating than the Google shit.
I hope I could help you with this list.I don't know if all of those are good enough for your recommendation page but maybe at least a few of them.
