Hello everybody,

People claiming to be time travelers frequent these boards, and I was wondering if there are any tests in place to verify if said time travelers are real or fake. One example of a test would be for an administrator to post periodically a string of random words to a dedicated board, and if the potential time traveler posts the string correctly before the next string comes out, they are verified.

We all know of that fake test waiting for that post.:)

This one is an example of how it can altered, good way of outing a false.

The time traveler test is "Please answer the question I haven't asked you yet"

Only one person has successfully passed the test.

If by successful you mean he provided the answer to the meaning of life pursuant to the Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy when in fact you were asking him his age.

You have misinterpreted his answer. Perhaps you are a liberal.

I think that my method is a little more foolproof considering that the string of words would be completely arbitrary, and the chances of guessing it are little to none. I would suggest starting a thread and the moderators taking turns posting random strings of words at least 10 words long every week or two.
