Thread starter #1
I keep seeing threads where the title is a link to a website of some sort and the content of the thread is describing some sort of problem, staff is usually good at cleaning it up fast but would it be possible to add some sort of system in registration to ask questions cubers would know? just something simple like “name a cube brand other than Rubik’s” or “name a wca event other than 3x3”

Doesn't it already ask what the 3x3 WR single is? The problem is with asking questions like that is A) the answer can be looked up very easily and B) what about people who have just learned to solve a cube then come here. I think we may need some thread filtration, I mean if you are going to spam I have a few tips:
1. Use clickbait titles, strange websites don't count.
2. Links on titles don't work
3. Please read the name of this forum.

Thanks for reporting. We're working on solving this now. It appears spammers have been able to break the reCAPTCHA and we're going to implement a new solution.
