Something's wrong with your browser, that text is actually dark grey.  Try forcing a cache refresh (shift+refresh) or updating.

The forum names are extremely hard to read before registration, white on mottled light gray/white is not the best choice. http://i.imgur.com/VLmgC.png
It's just that color for people who have not registered, most likely due to them not being able to post/there being no new posts. When I'm logged in I have the same as you, but before the very light/hard to read color is used.

The number of questions that need answered has been reduced 2 and the questions given will randomize.
Much better, though still maybe a little more than needed in my opinion. It's not like a spambot will get through a single unique question. or even a capatcha most likely.

Thank you for your input! :)
No prob. Will post more as I find it :)

Registration requires no less than five unique questions which almost no one will know without extensive searching (took me quite a while to find, and I know my way around the site roughly, still had to guess one of them), along with a capacha. This is waaaay over the top anti-spambot protection and will prevent almost all casual users from registering. Just the capacha is plenty to stop almost all spambots, maybe keep one much easier unique question if you're really paranoid about spambots. http://i.imgur.com/WHdiS.png

Also, not quite as direct a problem, but having a way to dismiss the large bold paragraph on the forum index about forum rules once you have read them would be really nice. It could be implemented as a dismissable announcement rather than as a permanent redirect forum, making the forum index much less clogged up. Similarly, though it takes up much less space, the link to the main site in the forum index could be removed in favor of making the top-right logo a link to the main page, as most sites do.
