[Solved] What's with the signature check at registration ?

Postby ginobean » Thu Aug 15, 2013 11:06 am

I tried about half a dozen times to register on this site and it kept on rejecting my signature, which was: OpenOffice 4.0.0 with MacOS 10.7.5

Finally, I ended up specifying one of the example signatures (the one with Windows Vista), just so I could get past registration, and then fixed my signature after I was able to finally register.

The problem is that your site is too stringent regarding the signature or parsing it in too strict a manner. Here's a suggestion: just set up 2-3 dropdown lists. One for the Open Office version number, one for the Mac/Windows/Linux. and maybe a freeform field for the O/S version numb er.

I think most users would have given up after 2-3 tries, so I think you may be losing potential registered users right off the bat.

Because of other committments for our phpBB adminstrator the signature check has not been updated for AOO 4.0. We are hopeful that this will happen this coming weekend, when the Forum wll be offline for upgrades from Friday evening until Sunday evening; but the essential code changes for version and OS upgrades are first priority as they reflect in greater stability and response of the Forum.
Apache OpenOffice 4.1.7 on Xubuntu 18.04.3 (mostly 64 bit version) and very infrequently on Win2K/XP
