Good point, didn't think about that..

They can always look it up I guess, but you're welcome to suggest any other questions. I can add them :)

Mind you, this is the best 'captcha' available, so I'd like to keep this one :P

cant you use the pictures from the barracks ? instead of names. that would solve the non english issue.

  Code:
btw all of the sudden when i go to the index page @ the shoutbox once it updates it says the following above the K&M Banner top page.

Re: Forum maintenance

Great work Tom :)
I have some problems with the new registration system:
- What if someone has only played TPR? Then they won't know which units were only in TSK.
- What if someone who has never played KaM finds our Remake and plays it, they won't know anything about TPR/TSK. (I know that's pretty unlikely, but not out of the question)
- As mentioned before translation is a problem, militia might be quite confusing for non-english players as it could mean just about any of the TPR town hall soldiers when translated literally. Using images would solve this problem but not the others.
- Couldn't a spam bot simply try all possible combinations? (there's only about 16 if my loose knowledge of statistics serves me correctly) But maybe any kind of puzzle like this will confuse a spam bot.

Surely if we're only trying to stop spam bots then something like this would be enough:
Place these words in the correct order:
Knights
And
Merchants

But that still has a very limited number of combinations so the spam bot could try all of them I guess... Anyone have a better idea?

EDIT: Not a big problem, but the navigation bar is missing a dot between FAQ and mini chat:
Image
It makes them look like one link, but they are separate as you can see when you hover.

Also, the RSS button is missing, although the page still exists and works fine.

Re: Forum maintenance

Why dont you try an Actual puzzle ?
ive seen this kinda captcha on some forums.
its useally a certain image with 9 pieces and you have to put them in the right place.
with 9 pieces there should be 729 combinations if im correct.
this will be kinda hard to fix even for a bot.

so maybe just use like 3 diffrent puzzles on shuffle like pikmen/serf/knight
even someone without ANY knowledge of Kam can make such a puzzle and it isnt bound to any language.

im not sure if its possible to implent that kinda captcha in this forum but i am 100% sure it exists.

Re: Forum maintenance

@Lewin, the solution to all your problems lies ahead. Just continue reading: :lol:

Instead, you could ask: which of these are part of kam?
You should just put units from TSK, because then a person who played either of them will know.
Eg.: (photos) - Pikeman, a bull, storehouse, crab, a rifleman, etc...

It is out of question, because to install the remake you need TPR, or have you forgotten? :P

So make them into images then, like someone suggested.

make many options, and not only 4.

So? Imagine I'm some random RTS gamer who has never heard of KaM:
1. I Google for medieval RTS games, and find http://www.kamremake.com
2. I like the look of it, so following the instructions on the download page I buy KaM TPR from GOG.com for $3
3. I install KaM TPR, then download and install KaM Remake
