A friend (Mahazkei) is trying to make an account on the forum so he can talk to Decagon.

But he's stuck on the "human verification" part. (Just now got messaged that he's through)

Quoted directly from Discord:

I said:
"No."
"I am human."
"I am a human."
"Pretty sure I'm not a drone."
"Am I?"
And, "Just let me in." All in that order.
And then I tried to leave it blank. Nada.
None of the above legit answers worked.

i just put "no" and it worked. Maybe it was, for some strange reason, the fact that you used full punctuation?

It was, he used non-punctuation "no" and now he has his account.

Personally, I think that should be changed. Being rejected for using proper punctuation doesn't sound like a fun thing to deal with. Unless it's a glitch or something, in which case, that should be fixed.

TR:DR

Friend had trouble making account.
Has it now, no more issue there.
Rejected for using punctuation.
teachers were wrong never use punctuation its bad run on sentences are the new fad

I just removed that question. It didn't really do anything to stop spam registration anyway.
As far as I can tell, there can only be one answer for any question in the anti-spam SMF questions. I couldn't put "no", "no.", "no!", etc.
