I wonder what other people think, but I would prefer the required strength of the password to be very low for this site - maybe with a captcha to prevent spamming.

Also, on the registration screen, it would be nice to state which fields are displayed publicly.

[FX] goes off to see what his sites do in this regard...!

Personally I find CAPTCHA's an supreme annoyance and there is some evidence that the really serious spammers have automated defeats against them. 

I have a medium term plan to avoid spam posts. 

  • When there are one or two I will just delete them manually.
  • If (OK When) it becomes an irritation I will turn on the moderation feature in the forums.  That way the spam posts get deleted before they are published.  The moderation feature supports trusted posters who are not moderated.  So we won't have to moderate every single post.

Cheers,

I've improved the registration page so it now makes clear what data is published on the site and what is only available to site management.
