Registration to this forum problem
« on: January 03, 2013, 11:17:56 AM »
I just wanted to point out a very important problem:

The security questions for the registration are ok, but the last one is an adage which not everybody knows. I had to search in google for the phrase and not every people is enough smart. Some people will just be so frustrated to be stopped by a question with no sense that they will leave the forum.

You should change it. Not everybody shares the same adages.

I don't remember having that many questions. I, myself, have reported quite a bit of spam, and with such a small and busy company as WEG, it's probably difficult to keep up with it all. This may be the reason for extra security when signing up.

Spambots have been deleted and banned! Ugh.

Yes, this is the reason for the forum questions. A number of people have complained about them lately. We'll see about changing them.

The registration process really is frustrating. One such question is too much, - but four, come on guys. :) If you have captcha you shouldn't have other questions, or vice versa.

There were only three questions, but we removed the last one so now there are only two. Let's see if the spam level stays the same!
