Martin is keeping strangely quiet? Perhaps he is trying to work out the answers!
I think one of the questions should be "who is the man in the brightly coloured shirt?) No,that could be Matks Model B[size=78%]its [/size] %) %) O0 O0 :embarrassed: :embarrassed:

I've changed the Sol question and once you've joined Mayhem, you'll never be asked again?!?!  {:-{

Martin,
I tried signing in AFTER I registered,in my pals details,and was asked again all the questions.They had changed slightly as I listed in my previous posts.There is also a real problem trying to decipher the letters,which I was again asked.
Sorry my friend,I know its an anti spammer device,but I am not a thicko with a computer,and I all but gave up.

OK Martin,I have just logged out,and re signed in using my pals details and it  is now asking me again for verification details,the unreadable letters,which I have changed umpteen times, which ship sank in 1912,which rocket landed on the moon ,and the sum.It is too muchHere goes..... 
it will not accept apollo,saturn,eagle,or challenger.So what else can it be?
Cheers,

Surely if 2 Pals are using the same computer then they will have to log in and out separately.

Len,
I understand your good intentions,but please do not add to the the complications matey? We are NOT sharing the same computer,and we ARE logging in  separately (as I have already stated)
All I am trying to do, is register him as a new member,then log in as that new member to make sure everything is as easy as possible for HIM,before he attempts to do it and loses interest because of all this hassle.Quite honestly,I am beginning to lose interest also.
Thanks,
No offence meant.

Mick
From memory your mate will be asked a verification question for the first ten attempts at logging in. After that there's no requirement  to do so. Quite why it's ten times is anyone's guess (it might be five, but whatever....). I too dislike those horribly distorted letters, and what might seem like an obvious question to one person is a nightmare for someone else e.g. the name of the "rocket" which landed on the moon. Is it perhaps "LEM"?
Martin might reduce the requirement to verify log-ins to just a couple of times (if that's possible with the software used); dispense with the distorted letters and/or set a question where there can be no doubt as to the answer e.g. the name given to the imaginary line running laterally round the centre of the earth or the passenger ship which struck an iceberg in the north Atlantic and sank in 1912.
I'm sure Martin doesn't want to deter new members by making initial 'logging ons' so fraught with difficulties.

I wonder how many new members there's been since the
"name of the rocket" question was set?
I wouldn't have made it!
