way to bypass those word verification boxes??
anyone know if there is a way to hack or skip over those word verification text boxes like on ticketmaster.com? after you pick the seats you want a text box comes up telling you to copy the word into the box to continue. its a pain in the ass because sometimes those words are near impossible to read and it can cost you valuable time for big events. im not really sure that something like this exists, but its worth a shot.
That's exactly why they are there...
probably but not open to public and thats the point they are there for security reasons

Yeah. You [i8a7f15d5a8]do[/i8a7f15d5a8] know they're meant to defeat automated programs? This question is oxy[b8a7f15d5a8]moron[/b8a7f15d5a8]ic
sometimes they go a little crazy though, and there is so much psychadelic crap in the background and lines over the numbers that a human has to look at it for a sec to figure out what the heck.
I had a lot that are too hard to read. I've messed a lot of them up.
I find this thread very funny. They make the boxes so you can't do what you are trying to do...
Maybe a OCR program. I used to play a game that had somethin similar to that where u had a type the word in and a OCR would do it for you. OCR = Optical Character Recognition i think. Dunno if you can find a free one that will work.
OCR isn't going to work on those that use complicated backgrounds, randomly rotated characters, and poor contrast. That's the whole point, to prevent an automated script from OCR'ing the text out of the image. )
Not saying it isn't possible because I haven't seen TicketMaster's security check. The ones that use simple block characters on a solid background are obviously relatively easy to automate. However the complex ones that are even challenging for a human to read are going to be near impossible to automate -- that being the point of their increased complexity.
In time you'll spend trying to get around it, you could have just read about 1000 of them on your own.

thats not my problem.. the issue is the first 15-30 seconds after the release. an automated program can just skip over that step. i'll sacrifice time in order to get a head start on most people for tix.
