    Angry Registration "Random Question" - wrong answer!

    Hey guys. Long time lurker, finally registered (with lots of grief)

    I was trying to register on my iPhone but it was not possible to see the question for the 'random question'

    When I eventually switched to desktop version (still on the iPhone) I was able to see it but then I couldn't move the jigsaw puzzles.

    What really got me is that when I finally get back to my laptop computer and tried to register, the random question asked 'What is the colour of the sun'.

    Please... the proper scientific answer is WHITE! The damn thing rejected my answer so I had to wait again for a minute before trying the supposed correct answer of YELLOW!

    What Color is the Sun?

    Hey, the sun is white, who knew? Well obviously you did. Sorry for the struggle you had. Hope you have fun here anyway.

    Maybe they could bring back the Solar color in white instead of yellow.

    Am I imagining things, or did Darcy say they're going to be looking at accessibility at some point? I'm not sure if that included the forums though.

    I guess I am saying is not to change the answer, but change the question itself.

    Ah man, sorry about all of the registration issues, SWANK-E. I'm glad you made it through, though: welcome!

    Weird jigsaw thing: we'll look into this. It's not really supposed to be there, I don't think.

    And we've added 'white' as one of the correct answers to the sun color question, at least until we can think of a better one!

    brucep: you're correct that we're planning to make some accessibility improvements to the main website and Forums. We've got a few page redesigns/updates in the works, though, and want to make those live before we do so.
