    To register to get onto the Kazaa lite forum they ask you to enter a six digit number in image format.If for example the six digit number was 123456 how do you enter that six digit number in image format in the space below on Kazaa lite.

    Many forums use this type of mechanism to help ensure that it is a real person, (and not some automated program - such as a web spider or bot), that is attempting to join their forum as a member. The idea is that a person can read the 6-digit number that is displayed (see image sample below) and type the same number in normal text in the space provided below it.

    Without some form of image recognition software, an automated program could not enter the number because it can't see it in the image.

    So, all they want you to do is type the number you see in the image into the line provided. That's it. It's simply a basic security feature.
