its only 3 questions now and people still complain?

as to your MP problem, sounds at least alittle more understandable. But be aware you reap what you sow with that attitude...

I have to agree, the 3 questions are rather excessive.

I'd rather answer 3 questions, than being a user in a forum full of spam.

Hmm... the spam has been crazy lately, I feel the questions may need to be increased to 5 questions now.

YEAH!!!
I had to do it twice because of that ::)

I did think it was a bit excessive, but hey you only need to do it once, and you can try again if you fail.

New questions should be:
What... is your name?
What... is your quest?
What... is your favourite colour?
What... is the capital of Assyria?
What... is the air-speed velocity of an unladen swallow?

And if you get any wrong you get thrown off the edge of the internet....

Just wanted to comment on the questions I got, one of them was what the longest river in the world is. Now I understand that we should google these questions, however, multiple answers should be correct. Amazon or Nile should both be correct as up until not too long ago everyone was thought the Nile is the longest. (where I believe the answer the registration was expecting is Amazon)

The gist of what I'm trying to say is that these questions are meant to check if you're human, not how well you can Google or how good your general knowledge is, and definitely not how good you are in answering trick questions. Make it so that multiple answers can be right, and if possible include the common mistake. The longest river question could also include the Mississippi for instance.

Losing communicative players is not a goal to strive for, I'm betting with such hard questions you're definitely going to get a few people to give up. While it might potentially seem to serve some greater purpose, at the end of the day this is just a forum, a means for people to communicate, there is no right or wrong way of communicating; quantity should be more important than quality.
