I almost couldn't sign up due to being able to spell

Postby Red Mosquito » Tue Nov 27, 2012 8:26 pm

Just thought I'd make you aware that I had great difficulty signing up, due to the "Who was captain of the Invincibles team?" question.

It would not accept my correct answer of "Patrick Vieira" and kept ending my session, forcing me to juggle browsers. Eventually I thought I'd try "Patrick Viera" just in case it worked and voilĂ , here I am.

You may want to get that spelling corrected for future sign-ups. I'm ashamed to say I even tried "Thierry Henry" even though I knew it was wrong in an attempt to get through.

Cheers, it did have me questioning my own sanity for a moment or two.

Yeah. To prove you're not a robot you have to type the full name of the captain of the Invincibles.

Ah. That must be new. I guess it's a way to try and weed out non-Arsenal fans too eh?;)

Yeah, I suppose. Although it almost weeded out a real one here. And I suppose anyone that's got much of an interest in football will know the answer to that question, anyway. It should ask you to name the pubs around the Emirates or something.

It says something about handshakes now, maybe it's on a random pick type thing? I dunno. We had so much spam over the last week it was unreal. Glad you cracked it though!

Cool. I'm happy I managed to improve the functionality of the forum within my first hour of being here. :biggrin:

Sorry, that was my mistake. I'm not football-savvy enough to know the correct spelling. Fixed now.

Yeah, a random question is selected from a pool of questions each time anyone tries to register.

1) It was our fault for spelling Vieira wrong
2) Why did you bump this year old thread
