A seggesion for registering for the arch forums.

Many of us refer to archlinux as simply arch, when the regiser asks what distro this forum is about, you have to type archlinux, rather than arch, or arch linux. Is there a way to add muliple correct answers, because it took me  few tries to figure out why it thought I was a bot.

Re: A seggesion for registering for the arch forums.

Just loaded up the reg page to check (forgot what it looked like), and yes its a possible point of confusion. I actually passed it first try I think, hence not noticing it at all.

Perhaps just a simple (don't forget to include the space) at the end would solve the whole issue? If it has a space, it HAS to be arch linux instead of just arch or archlinux, right?

Re: A seggesion for registering for the arch forums.

Read it carefully, it's a comprehension question.

This is the Archlinux forum. For which Linux distribution is this forum?

The answer is in the question. Sure it might take a couple of attempts to realise that, but it does a brilliant job of keeping the bots out.
