Forum registration captcha

Hi!

I think the forum registration captcha ("For which Linux distribution is this forum?") should accept either "Arch", "Arch Linux" and "Archlinux" as correct replies. It took me several minutes of uselessly twiddling with my browser settings before I hit on trying to spell it the latter way.

At least I think that's what finally got me registered. Please pardon me if I am wrong.

Re: Forum registration captcha

Seriously...   the quiestion say something like  "This is the Arch Linux forums.  For which distribution are the forums for?"   The answer is in the forums.

Give what you have. To someone, it may be better than you dare to think.

Re: Forum registration captcha

Yes . . . I read that, thank you. I am living proof, however, that you can notice the "Archlinux" and still think the captcha is a trick question and you have to correct the spelling to "Arch Linux".

Take it or leave it.

Glad to entertain you!

Re: Forum registration captcha

We could also include a pacman flash game that new users have to complete before finalizing registration.

They'd never get past level 256.
