Well that's interesting. Forum help.
« on: July 11, 2015, 03:52:31 AM »

A friend of mine is trying to register on TK's forums.

It presents a field that says,

What chat is this forum for? (all lowercase, no capitals) - antispam question:

That's interesting enough.

The issue is, he's tried the following:
the keep
thekeep
nexxushost
tk
roleplay
rp

And none of it has been accepted.  So uh, what?

it should have worked with one of those, but i don't remember.

i had the same problem at first as well. it took me a couple of weeks before i just randomly typed in something (along the lines of what you just listed, i'm sure) and it worked.

I have no idea why it was doing that. I tested it just now with "thekeep" and it seemed to work fine.

I'unno, they got registered a few days ago successfully, but they did cite that they swore up and down they'd tried the same word with the same lack of spaces multiple times before being let through.  I dunno if it was thekeep or what.

The correct answer dearie was : "This forum isn't for normies or casuals."




Just kidding. Welcome them to the fold they should fit right in.

For future reference, thekeep is indeed the correct answer.

Yeah back then he even said "wtf I typed thekeep" so I'm going to imagine it was just hating him or cookie hijinks or something, but it's resolved now.
