This question is a means of preventing automated form submissions by spambots.

I just have registered (after answering the above question)... And what is the correct answer?... I filled in 245...

Holy #$*@ those questions drove me crazy...

It kept giving me the one asking the number of rotation vectors in 3D vs 2D. I don't have a clue... I only do 2D games. Took me ten minutes to register. Even google couldn't give me the answers to those questions until it came to the "What do new box2d users accidentally use instead of meters one?"

Using physics questions as CAPTCHA? Brilliant! We all know how bad computers are at math! :p

Glad I got an easy one (I had to fill one to log in to my existing account!). But seriously, what's wrong with traditional methods? Here too are some good ways to stop bots without intruding on users.

(If you think this one's bad, don't even try to sign up on the Xfce forums... they have like 14 different CAPTCHAs you have to do! o.o)

There are 3 axes of rotation in 3D (pitch yaw roll) and only one in 2D (z axis -- roll, I guess?). I think that means the answer was 2.

I'd like to point out that one simply needs to clear out their cookies and can continuously reload until they get an easy question... ;)

Pathetic decision.

So many real people might not be able to register and get help because of the questions..
