4.6.6.23 Other link types

Extensions to the predefined set of link types may be registered in the microformats wiki existing-rel-values page. [MFREL]

Registration is defunct, in that new users are required to pass a reCAPTCHA V1 which has shutdown.

Registration (on the microformats wiki) works fine. I just tried it and created a new account. If you are having trouble understanding the microformats wiki, whether with registration or anything, please state the problem as a question and check the FAQ accordingly: http://microformats.org/wiki/faq

Recommend closure of issue #3704, works for me, no changes to HTML Standard needed.

The account registration box embeds a captcha that says:

 rePCAPTCHA V1 IS SHUTDOWN
 Direct site owners to g.co/recaptcha/upgrade

How am I supposed to pass it? Leaving the field empty leads to:

Login error: Incorrect or missing confirmation code.

I can confirm that the login page displays a big red rePCAPTCHA V1 IS SHUTDOWN thing:

captcha

…and as can be seen in the screenshot above, there’s no way to pass the captcha — it doesn’t display in any captcha text, so there’s nothing you can type into the Type the text input field to match.

FWIW, the captcha check fails open, so any input is accepted. E.g. I created a new account using "kittens kittens" as the captcha solution.

The microformats wiki still includes the defunct captcha for user registration.

Additionally passing the captcha is required in order to post external links (references, links to implementations, examples …), but it has not been possible to pass it anymore for months. This has been known to site administrators for at least four months.

Sorry, but this is unacceptable for a website which is officially responsible for HTML's rel extensions and thereby also determines whether HTML errors are reported by HTML validators or not. Please fix microformats.org as soon as possible or create an alternative solution to register rel values.

I’d support moving the existing set of allowed values from the microformats wiki into the HTML spec, and making the new registration mechanism be that when you want to add a new value, you create a pull request with a patch.
