Author Topic: Registering for the forum is needlessly difficult  (Read 392 times)

This is the hardest forum registration I have ever known.  There will be people out there that might be incredible Adventure Game Developers, but had SpLDs that prevented them getting through that needless mindfield.

Is it really necessary to be so contrived to register an account on this forum?  Can this please be reviewed?

Even trying to post this simple post I have been met with the same ridicilous question set and reCAPTCHA.

It's obviously to keep out the riff raff.  :=

In all seriousness though, you're not the first to complain. Personally, I can't remember having much difficulty registering, but that was years ago.

Please see my usual response here: https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?topic=58347.msg636625089#msg636625089.  Please note a guide to the answers is clearly linked on the registration page if you make a mistake: https://www.adventuregamestudio.co.uk/forums/index.php?action=faq;sa=single;fid=11, so it's also a test of reading comprehension...

And we just love puzzles, right?
