    Yes that is done on purpose to encourage the user to go and find the answer , it allows the membership to have a bit of common sense or some intelligence which hopefully over time will bring the "correct" type of person to the forums. It has also cut down our spam registrations but 120% since having harder questions.

    Which can be put into a simple equation:

    Harder registration = less spam/spambots = higher quality stuff = better forum overall.

    I'm a member on quite a few webmaster forums, and this forum has to be one of the cleanest I'm on. If you ever seen some other ones, they are FILLED with tons of junk posts and useless dribble information.

    THis place could be alot better if i was around more hahah, but at the moment the only reason its this clean is because of the alterations we've made to the software. If i was around to catch the rest then we wouldnt have any crap lol
