Bug in the Register Dialog on the Website

As I find no matching forum, I post my feedback here. If anyone has a suggestion where the right place to post is, I would be glad to know!

 

There is a bug and some, close to prohibitive, nuisances in the registration dialog for the forum.

 

The Bug:

If the answer to the security question is perceived false, all subsequent answers will also be reparted as false, no matter what.

(I'v tried them all, believe me, several times).

I had to restart the browser and start over again to pass the anti-robot-question.

 

The Nuisances:

1. Some of the questions are ambiguous: E.g. Lexically correct answers to one of the questions 'none', 'zero', '0' (and possibly some more)

2. The question referring to a misspelled word is difficult for non-native speakers (and of course the dyslectic).

3. a standard QWERTY-Keyboard is not a standard keyboard everywhere. 

 

If someone could look over the code and the questions, it would be a great service to community.

Not everyone is as stubborn as I am, most would probably give up and never join.

Yes, and the software accepts a variety of correct answers to that question.

I never like that particular question either. It has been replaced.

The question is not a test of your knowledge. It's a test of comprehension, and your ability to find the answer. (i.e. looking down at a QWERY keyboard, doing an image web search, ect.)

This is not entirely correct. I have tested this, and the issue is with the Security Check (Jigsaw Puzzle), not the Security Questions.
