A strange question

Have something to say about forums.debian.net itself?

A strange question

Postby NoA » 2012-03-01 01:50

Hi, I just registered on the forum, but my registration became a little tricky hwne I was presented with the numbers 0 1 2 3 4 5 and asked for the middle number. I tried with 2.5 even though I kind of knew that wasn't the answer. Then it returned the hint that it should be 3 or more ;)

Cheers,
NoA

Hi zalew, I appologise!
I did not know it existed since 2009. I thought of it as a bug report, because it is.. it's not confusing, it's not a feature. It's a bug :)

Three threads on the same subject in a span of a couple of weeks...

Why am I reminded of the "Iceweasel isn't really Firefox" trolls?

I think that the devs should change the question to "Which of the following numbers is the best?"

Stupid questions, repeated questions, threads not being marked as solved, trolling and the Icweasel vs Firefox thing are an inevitability of these forums... you've been here less than a year... in about 4 years time you may achieve the full realisation of this and learn to stop worrying and love the bomb.

:wink:
