Due to a recent rash of automated posters, the Inside3D forums now use a method of authentication called KittenAuth. In this Captcha scheme you will be presented with a grid of images and a question related to these images. The strength of the system is in the customization and is best handled if each installed message board has a seperate set of questions and images. The Inside3D forums use images from the id software game Quake. The questions ask for you to identify which pictures are monsters, keys, powerups, weapons or armors.
If you've been living under a rock your entire life and you are completely unfamiliar with Quake or are otherwise having trouble registering, You can download the shareware version of the game, located here http://www.quakeone.com/freequake/en.html to familiarize yourself. If you are visually impaired you may register by contacting me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please use the word Inside3D in the subject line to bypass my spam filter.
Thank you for your interest in Inside3D.
