Could I please ask a question, what was with the registration? I mean I Passed it and everything.
(Obviously)
However why was all that necessary? I mean is it disposed to filter out people, or what? I mean I am only 15 and I got it.
So I am guessing that it was not disposed to filter age because every one knows when Einstein was born and died. However I don't understand it. As well as simply making a dummy project and copying the code into a IDE and just using the line:

System.out.println(Insert Int Here)

Nether the less, please respond.

Hey my names Michael, and I love learning about java and creating games (Learning to create games)

It is not to filter out age but to filter out spammers and spam robots. It's a proven fact that spammers do not know when Einstein was born.

I hate to burst your bubble, Riven but I have a friend on here who told me he just "googled it". He isnt a spammer or anything but Im curious how he got through the protection, considering that he hasnt the slightest idea how to program in any language.

Ill have to ask him and get back to you all.

I think it should be a bit harder. I like this forum being the odd little place it is.

You can't find the last answer on Google obviously. The first you can though. I think the quiz is just hard enough to keep the noobs out, but let the dedicated people in. When I first found the forum I tried to join, but I barely had done anything in programming so I had no idea how to answer the last question. Looking back, I see this as a good thing because I would've likely spammed the forum with newbish questions. After I rediscovered the site two years later, I could easily answer all the questions because I had learned what I needed to learn, and I wasn't a noon anymore. The quiz is fine, leave it alone.

I remember that I found this forum after being on plain java-forums, so I got the quiz pretty fast. It's funny, I had been lurking here for about 3 months, until I finally wanted to make a game with a team.

Not such a little place anymore, eh?  Pointing
But hey, as long as there are a few bright people among the hoards. Right? Haha...
But I do agree, the questions should be a little harder. Not just to filter out the spammers, but also to make sure the people registering have the initiative to actually do something themselves.

Probably stretching it here, but what if you had a set amount of tests, and you get a random one if you register?

It's been a long time since one of these threads appeared, so I feel like responding.

It's a test of your initiative and ability to use Google.
If a person can't google, there's no point letting them litter the forum with questions like "Why am I getting a NullPointerException?".

Exactly Heroes! It shouldn't be some hard code but something that forces someone to google a few things and teach themselves. I think the an issue with this forum (and all really) is duplicate topics. I know I probably have been guilty of it but people need to seriously search before posting. If the last time a topic with a similar title is 4+ years old, hey technology changes, but I feel like a "what game engine is better LWJGL or SLICK or Libgdx" topic happens every week.

I'm as bubbly as the next guy, so I've had a few bursts in my life. But regarding this specific case... despite people yelling at me how it cannot possibly work, it simply does. When was the last spam topic? We get 2 or 3 annually tops. And if somebody can get their programming agnostic friend to pass the quiz, good for them - he might turn out to be an excellent developer one day. Smiley

The riddles for the Angband forums, and the TIGSource forum entry question are actually harder IMO, than the JGO one. But they all do the job. It's fine and quite reasonable as it is.

I actually forgot this was even a thing when registering, because it wasn't something that kept me from joining, nor did it really bother me when I did it.
