I had a really nice system for this but decided to scrap it in favor of random values... The future may show a very different ACP configuration page for CAPTCHA settings ;)

You can still get uniqueness, the Occlude and 3D Bitmap policies are disabled by default.

I got locked out and requested a new password ... so I get the password and go to log in but have "exceeded the number of login attempts". So login wanted me to do the CAPTCHA. It took me 4 tries to finally get one correct. This isn't a *beep*, just feedback and wondering if the hot & sweaty masses will have my virtuous patience :roll: :-P

We appreciate the feedback. But we understand very well whether something is too hard to read or not. :)

I tend to just highlight and read it that way 8)

Still, it does hurt the eyes sometimes just knowing it's there.

I think it is harder than you think ;) If you think otherwise, try doing it programmatically
If you treat each symbol as a seperate image, PHP's imagerotate() function will be sufficiant, won't it? Slowing the process down offcourse, but increasing security..

I was refering to trying to break it, not rotating it. It is very easy to get rotation on those images.

Ah, that makes sence :P

Well, I have no experience at all with OCR.. But if it can detect letters so easily, why not matching those symbols?

Hey, we've got something that is actually decipherable, so can we please think about how to improve readability and not about how to increase the difficulty? ;-)
