I've just joined the forum after spending 8 hours today trying to sign up and being constantly locked out due to putting the common sense answer of 7, then Seven, then seven, then 7 again....

I then found an old thread explaining that it's supposed to be UNIQUE letters, which of course is 6, that thread was almost 3 years old....
I cannot imagine how many people gave up trying to join because of this nonsense :D

Nothing said it was only about the combined total of the letters.

Latest info says seven people gave up trying, but one of them wasn't that unique, so the answer is six people.

I totally agree, it is needless nonsense. It's actually quite stupid. It certainly doesn't help improve the site's reputation...

Anyways only the Admin can make the change in say adding the word unique to make it more obvious or to revert it back to the random characters captacha of before. People did complain about the random characters captcha before it was changed to what it is now. However the Admin has not been around for a while now and nobody has been able to communicate with him and in part due to that the forum could either be shut down at some point or be started on another domain as per another thread here.
