Registering on the site

Postby GPW_Semi » Mon Dec 19, 2011 10:39 am

Hi all,

Bit confused by the registration Captcha TBH, the question to choose the middle number of 1 2 3 4 5 (3) is not three as one may suppose, but apparently 5, because 3 is too small.

Lest the less tenacious give up at that stage the webmaster may wish to make that bit a little easier!

I still can't work out why 5 would be the answer TBH, if you took the mean you'd get 7.5, the middle number(digit) _is_ 3, using 234 was too big (5 is the max and the min allowed entry).

The question was changed, the answer wasn't. Sorry for the inconvenience.

I have just registered and I at first wondered what was wanted. But the penny soon dropped even although I am 77 years of age ! As I see it the middle number is the one which is physically in the middle of the string. So, for example, if the number is 13524, the middle number is 5.
