This captcha is absolutely ridiculous. Nobody can read this, it will make it so that this community does not grow.

*new members try to register
*FUUUuu after 20 failed captcha tries

Seriously, use recaptcha, it's free and good.

Turn off your caps lock and you'll be good to go.

Read thread. Only when you (or a bot) misspell your password.

No wonder, it's because I'm too pro at the keyboard

^^ This (and the fact that it annoyed the crap out of me), is one of the main reasons I posted the tread in the first place.

The truth of this post will be corroborated or invalidated, depending on whether or not something actually *does* get done, now that a simple how-to-fix guide has been provided.

An interesting thought, but recaptcha sometimes gives impossible images.

Edit: Well I guess only the word it doesn't check is impossible. Still, annoying. And recaptcha isn't what I'd call 'easy'.

Okay, I've gone through the Captcha the last 4 times I logged in. No problems.

I think you complainers just suck. Or are bots. L2Captcha.

I managed to enter it correctly again which puts me at 100% success rate with 2 tries. There was even a 1 this time.

Some douche apparently tried to log in as me, causing me to get the captcha when I tried to log in just now. Well played. Got it the first try though.
