Set own checking question and answer (KEY) in registration and guest posting

How can I set at least one of my own question and the answer to it, instead of a mathematical question when registering and sending a post as a guest?

This is impossible in the current captcha class. Especially your last idea to have more than one answer (for misspelling and/or different languages?) would be far from easy to implement. And it would be a mess to maintain by a forum admin/a forum operator.

And most importantly, to be able to automatically register a group of people by handing out a key to them, by mail.

I don't know, if it is a good idea to register users without their will. To be able to invite further people could be a nice feature. This would make the people aware of the instance and it encourages them to follow the invitation or not by their own will.

And guests could only read.

This is already possible by setting the access to a forum to all (setting access_for_users_only = 0) and the right to write postings to registered users only (setting entries_by_users_only = 1).

Tschö, Auge
