• Register for ArchLinux Forum?

    I’ve been trying to register for the ArchLinux forum [https://bbs.archlinux.org] despite their rather grumpy admonition "These forums are for Arch Linux x86_64 ONLY. Not Antegros, or Apricity, or Manjaro, or any of the “easy Arch installers’”. I have a question I’d like to post that pertains to Arch, and Antergos is essentially 100% Arch, right?
    Anyway, the registration form requires one to paste the output of “date -u +%V$(uname)|sha384sum|sed ‘s/\W//g’”. OK, I copy-pasted this into a terminal and copy-pasted the long string of characters back into the registration form. But I keep getting an error saying your answer is not correct. What am I doing wrong? I made sure daylight savings was checked on the form, and made sure I copied the command EXACTLY into the terminal. Can they tell I’m using Antergos? Is the output of sha384sum somehow different under Antergos?
    Thanks for any advice.

    your answer is not correct

    Also " Antergos is essentially 100% Arch " is not valid ;)

    The decision to support only pure Archlinux installations is a entitled decision of the Archforum.

    Often discussed, here, at Archforum and all around the net…

    If you have a question why not ask it here?
    Is it this what you want to ask? >>
