I respectfully requesta change...

Postby Kermit1945 » Tue Jun 25, 2013 10:26 pm

...to the gatekeeping question on the registration page. "What is the farthest target?" I tried 200 meters, 200 yards, tried calling a friend who is a member, asked for help on other forums. EVERYONE thought you were asking for RANGE instead of SHAPE.

Perhaps the question would be less ambiguous if it read "What is the shape of the farthest target?" I'm wondering how many gave up and never had the "ah HA" that got them in?

Glad to be here, now that I'm not so stupid. :D

But the correct answer is "RAMS." :))

I had the same problem! I actually did give up, then tried again the next day and realized what they were asking for.

Actually I believe the correct answer is: RAM (not RAMS). Correct me if I'm wrong and I'm sorry this has to be such a stumbling block; I too wish it were different.

If the answer was to be 200 meters or 200 yards, then the question would have been "What is the distance to the farthest target?" The question was instead "What is the target?" Sometimes, the distance is only 100 yards or meters (smallbore & FP) but the farthest target is still a ram. I had no problem with this question when I became a forum member.
