Anti-bot Inkscape question

Postby Badger » Sat Aug 13, 2016 12:10 am

Hey, I've got a question "which position is the measurement tool". I don't have measurement tool! I've got 19 tools and none of them is measurement. I had to google images to find how it looks for other users. A bot is unlikely to do that, but I think that is way too intelligent ;)

You would be surprised if you knew how many spammers still come through.
At least the first post approval system prevents those hitting the public boards in a sudden.

Didn't know it is now the measurement tool, the tweak tool was the question previously.
Either microUgly or Xav changed the question.

Well one could set up a random question. But I've got Inkscape 0.48 for Linux and there is just no measuring tool :) And the the funny thing, when you get it wrong it gives you quite strange hints.

It wasn't me, but I have had a look at the Admin Control Panel to see if I could remove that question (as you're right, it's not valid for 0.48 users). Unfortunately I can't find where the questions are set: to be clear, I can see where it looks like they should be set, but there are no existing questions listed there.

My guess is that they were set up by MicroUgly, so they still exist in the database, but a subsequent forum update has resulted in a problem with the UI for managing them. So unless MicroUgly dives into the database itself (I don't have access to that), I'm afraid we're stuck with some questionable questions!

It is in the admin control panel -- it's difficult to find stuff in there. I can change it or remove it -- I did not realise the tools had changed positions. Removing it may increase work for the moderators.
