Colorblind unfriendliness, general illegibility of registration process.
I have to say the registration process for these forums is extremely difficult for color blind people.
I repeatedly failed the image verification due to it being illegible to me. If the colors happened to line up properly, I X and K would be indistinguishable, or C and G.
Normally when this sort of thing occurs I can email the site administrators and ask them to just create an account for me. Not so here, as to send a message to the administrator I have to complete an image verification which I was unable to in the first place. I would hate to be blind, it would literally be completely impossible to register for the forums or contact anyone.
I must've tried a dozen times until I gave up and got a co-worker to fill it out for me. Extremely frustrating.
Please consider removing similar letters (C&G, K&X, etc) and removing the image verification from the process to report issues with image verification.

Hello, I have disabled the extra lines that are put in the image verification so hopefully that helps. The forums receive a lot of spam so we will monitor the amount of spam and if it increases dramatically we will revisit this change.
