Registration P***-**f
« on: December 07, 2015, 04:56:10 am »
So, while registering, i was required to spend almost half an hour looking up 'what game was created on june 28 2014, and though I knew the answer was obviously this game, it took me nearly half an hour to find out EXACTLY what I had to type in. The answer of course being 2.5
This sucked and has me wondering, is this really necessary, i mean, if a person is willing to register here, do they really need to be frustrated with such a minuscule obstacle?
 I searched and searched, and no, the answer is not spelled out in any google links. i had to go to news feed and back to june 2014. obviously i got it done, but i can't help but wonder how many people said f*** it and decided not to support your site for such a silly demand in the registration process. 
Just Saying, I think that little bonus question should be removed from the registration. its useless and unnecessarily  frustrating.

 Ohhh Nice. All that crap to log in and the onlyway i can get into the forums is to go thru the link in my email. If I try a regular log-in, it says my username does not exist. So obviously i can't save my game in-game without a recognized username. WTF!

Other forums (e.g. wesnoth) use CAPTCHA. I usually need several trials too but it's not as frustrating.

If someone doesn't master this hurdle, how should he fend of hordes of plasmablade wielding aliens  :-\
