I have tried several times, to register here, and when I got to that : How many letters in Mozilla, I first typed 7
That got rejected, so I typed Seven, that also got rejected ,.
So I went through the Mozilla Bug thing, and got a reply saying
Type 6.
So I did and that went through.
However someone needs to correct the page, otherwise there could be loads of people, who just give up .

That's not a bug. Think of it as an IQ test. The correct answer of 6 relates to "How many unique letters are in the name Mozilla."

It is interesting how some people conclude that it is only about the complete total letters.

I see you did in Bug 1544395

Note the mozillaZine.org site is not a part or nor run by Mozilla as it is independent. When the mozillaZine site started back in 1998, the use of mozilla in the name was not a big deal then. http://www.mozillazine.org/about/

Mozilla has their own more recent forum at https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/

But, it does not say that, does it ? It just asks :
How many letters in Mozilla.

Anyway, sorted now, no worries. However, as said, it could stop a lot of people from bothering to join !

Hm, not a bug :shock:
I didn't pass the IQ-test - just guessed.
To me there are seven letters in Mozilla :?

Please...Not again.
There are just 6 unique letters in MOZILLA....not 7, as already stated.
This has been discussed, numerous times, but we lowly moderators are not able to change anything.
Thanks.
