Of course Derakons original suggestion is better. If you make couple of questions / artifact / monster / item / ability / game mechanics and change them for every wrong question it would take too long for bot to crack it.

"PVAL of Feanor?", ""Fastest" weapon of the game?", "Headgear of Morgoth?" "Low level artifact weapon with ESP?" "Artifact mace of disruption?" "Bodyarmor with banishment activation?", "Ego-weapon for priests with slay demon", "Which non-stat ability in handgear allows mages to use it without penalty?", "stat that increases hitpoints?" "feared dragon golem", "Q that can teleport you away". etc.

Oh, well, I don't know answers for 2/3 of those questions myself, so, probably, such a check would repell all new members

Really? I thought those were all easy:

15, Ringil, Massive Iron Crown, Theoden, Deathwreaker, Celeborn, Holy Avenger, Free Action, Constitution, Drolem, Nexus Q (thought that last one quylthulq quytlhuq whatever can't write it can't spell it could be a bit hard).

I have implemented the question/answer challenge Timo suggested a while back. Let's see how well that goes.

Problematic : i had forgotten my account password and was trying to recover it, but i can't figure out the answer to that question. In the end i refound my password alone, but still, i'd like to know the answer if i get stuck again one day.

Use Google or read the books. Answer is in them. Even watching the movie gives you the right answer.

I tried to google the answer when I tried to subscribe, but it took like 5 or so tries till I had the exact wording right. Problem was to find out which part of the quotes that google gave me, actually is the answer to put in there.

If that question is what I saw when I checked at registration, it is single word.

What was the question? Is it the "Ennyn Durin aran Moria, pedo mellon a minno"?

Yeah. wikipedia gives the answer, but it took a bit of search. Especially because it's a "... Moria. Pedo mellon a minno" Punctuation means everything ^^.

Wikipedia actually had an error in that. It said "Pedo mellon a mino" instead of "...minno". Fixed it. Also right way to write that might be

"Ennyn Durin aran Moria: pedo mellon a minno".

It looks like that is the way hardcore Tolkien "encyclopedias" write it. But punctuation in actual elvish writing is something I don't recall just now. Some pages show that there is ":" between those two phrases, but I don't recall Tolkien drawing of it.
