Title: Account creation is FUBAR
Post by: sixit on January 11, 2014, 08:31:18 PM

What doofus decided that only rocket scientists and oceanographers should have access to this forum?

How many planets are in the solar system depends on who you ask: The answer can range from eight to ten or more.

Define "major" as it relates to oceans, Mr./Ms. Doofus.

Did you know that responses requiring a numerical answer can be answered either using digits or the spelling of the number?

This is a PERFECT example of how NOT to do anti-spammer verification! No one should have to spend five minutes on Google to find answers to questions, nor should someone have to try every permutation of each possible answer, either.  A captcha and a verification email should suffice.

Jeeesh.

Better than how many fingers a human hand has, then getting the answer wrong  is that extra digit a finger or a thumb!

Captchas are not the answer they are very easy to get wrong because they have so much noise in the image that are hard for humans to read, but noise is easy for any image processing program to remove.  Text recognition is actually easier for computers than humans.

Use a question about Planet Explorers that can be easily found by reading the Pathea website, like is it a sci-fi RPG or a travel blog.

If you can register on the forum, you're overqualified for playing the game. Life sucks.

but they are right. Questions here are.. difficult. Not hard to know but very questionable at least (many of them really are "depends on whom you ask"). Also add some language barrier. I almost knew the answer to my question and I still was not able to put it right.

I almost knew the answer to my question and I still was not able to put it right and before left you might check https://phenq-reviews.com (https://phenq-reviews.com/).

How you can declare this thing easily with no casting or creation :(
