OK, so I'm starting to get annoyed by the login bonus notification. It's huge and I'd really rather just close the notification rather than being forced to go deal with the captcha. As someone who really doesn't log in every single day, the 1k isn't really worth the trouble and making me select a pet every time I log on just to make the site useable seems ridiculous to me.

Why doesn't it appear like every notification in the left sidebar? Ideally, I'd like to see it moved there. At least then I can ignore it lol.

@Static Usually I get 2k. I don't really care about the "streak" - for low key players like me, the 2k helps for just a second of time to click.

I personally like the way it's done and thats because I care about the streak so when it's in your face like that, it's a helpful reminder.

I do understand that if you're not on daily, you may not want it. What about if there was an option to turn off the notification? I feel like a handful of people may find that helpful.

@RiverStarr That would be a perfect solution if it's not too hard to program!!

Or perhaps just display it on the first page you visit after you log in instead of every. single. one. It just does kind of feel like a lot when ads for the ICE shop, the login alert, and the page title banner take up half my page haha.

Or just make it automatically bring you to the reward captcha page when you first visit IP. Or move the captcha to the login page and make the login bonus automatic, because that would make so much more sense.

Basically, any change would be an improvement...

The ability to choose would be great smile_happy.gif I personally like it there, but I understand if you don’t really bother.

@Cowpro Yeah, but I assume the captcha is there so people aren't scripting multis to collect login bonuses, right? If you're already logged into your main whats the point of the captcha? What form of cheating is that stopping?

@Static, I mean.. I'm pretty sure the captcha is there so you have to actually want to collect your login bonus..

Along the lines of what River said - perhaps an X to close the alert, or simply an option in preferences somewhere to not participate?

Although I absolutely love the daily login bonus, I can see how others could be annoyed by it smile_happy.gif

@Static @Cowpro

The capatcha isn't just an unnecessary feature meant to annoy users. :/

It is, of course, to confirm that the user is a human and not some sort of script. The reason that the reward is not automatic is that you could script something to just refresh the site automatically for you to get the reward, without ever having to actually visit the site, if that was possible.

If you think about it, having to click on a pet is really a minimal amount of work. Especially when you compare it to the rewards that are being given out. Besides the handful of iP (that really does add up over time) there is a whole set of collectible Items that are attached to this feature that are actually worth quite a bit.

But I do see your point about the notification!
I definitely recognize the value in a user being able to have a choice between wanting it or not. Something to consider implementing.

Does Icepets log you guys out periodically or is that just me? Every day or two I have to log in again, and if that's the case for everyone that's another reason for moving the captcha to the login page.

This is wayyy off topic from my original suggestion, though. Which is to move to move the "Don't forget to collect your streak" to the normal notifications section in the sidebar... Is there a reason it was made its own popup?

For the past year, during events mostly, we’ve been using those pop up style notifications. They work great in a sense that they catch your eye immediately and follow you around at the top of every page until you interact with it.

A notification on the side panel would have worked, and is a valid suggestion. That might just be more of a personal preference as they’re both similar in function.

@Static No, in fact I haven't experienced an automatic log off since @Judda suggested I check the disable improved security at log-in. I can't comment on the rest because I'm no computer programming expert.

I like the daily login notification where it is. I'd forget if it wasn't there!

I wonder what happens if we answer the captcha wrong.

Do we get a second chance at getting it right, and get the day's prize or does getting it wrong cancel the prize?

Is there an avatar for answering the captcha wrong?

@fizzy I believe you get it wrong with no prize. I do not know if it resets your count though. Not willing to test it this late in the game! haha

@IcePrincess perhaps no prize, but I don't think it would resent the count for login in daily. I too am not willing to test it lol.

You lose your streak if you click on the wrong pet. I think I received an item when it happened to me but I can't confirm properly. I just didn't remember where it mysterious item came from.
