How do you ensure that a user enters the number in UK format though? Here's my number, for example...
Here is a number for somewhere in Edinburgh though...
0131 231 4653
Does the validation tool accommodate this, because the numbers are very different. Also, some people do this in the UK:
or they might even try these if they keep being told it's wrong...
+44 01671 404924
There's a lot of variation and continually being told you're doing it wrong, when all of the above are technically correct, is frustrating for a user.
I understand why it was created but I can't stand CAPTCHA purely because it looks so amateurish and, as a user, it just frustrates me. Also, does it cope with the above variations?
We have to manually add \r and \n in the "allow other" alphanumeric validation - that isn't particularly obvious to someone who isn't familiar with validations so maybe (doesn't hold breath) a check box could be added to say "allow line breaks"? Will try to remember that but I've done a couple of forms and come across this problem and then realised it was the same issue.
Appreciate the help, thank you.
