    Default new member problems

    just read people saying on another forum they didn't bother signing up here because they couldn't answer the random question on the sign up page.

    perhaps a captcha etc would be more suitable given that prime ministers seem to change at the drop of a hat

    Maybe enable facebook authentication. That may help people sign up easier.

    I remember the alternate question was something like what swims in water or what do you keep in aquariums. Something like that. Also gmail email wasn't a problem. That seems easy enough.
