Suggestion Discrimnatory question of resistering process should be fixed

  1. Feb 21, 2009 #1
    Hi, I just registered today
    and I had quite a problem of answering the random question section;
    it asked me what color of the words " forums" are written.

    of course, its green right?
    but I could not figure that out until my brother answered it for me,
    cuz im freakin color blind.

    well, its a minor thing, but it would've been more pleasant if I didnt have to call my brother over and ask that jerk to do me a favor.

    thanks ;)

    Registration Question (Problem)

    I was wondering if the question only takes green as an answer because I have 2 friends who are colour blind and don't see greens (they see them as browns I believe) and they will most likely want to use these forums. I was wondering if I should just tell them the answer ahead of time.

    I hate color blind people and think they all should just die already!

    Technically the question is a logical CAPTCHA. If you are suggesting a visual CAPTCHA, we used such a device for many years and bots still got through. Since implementing the question we blocked virtually all bots.

    This is a physics site so maybe you could ask a very basic physics question.

    Except for the people who come here for help because they don't know enough physics.

    Well, Everyone one knows some basic physics.

    Or, "What is the air speed velocity of an unladen swallow?"

    The wise one is lisab. She stumped me with her question so that I, not she, plunged to my death.

    You have to know these things when you're a PF Contributor, you know.

    Interesting idea about usage of color-recognition from a forum registrant. I no longer remember the actual registration process. the basic color scheme I see on the forum seems to be a set of very light grayish blues.

    Quickly? Eventually? Unless it escapes Earth's orbit entirely? :biggrin:
