Board Registration

Post by Heath » Wed Jan 07, 2004 9:21 am

I have turned on user activation for registering on the board. This means that when you go to register, the system will first verify your email address by sending you an activation code. After your address is verified, you can log in and make use of the advanced features only availabe to registered users such as private messages, "watch this topic" and other things.

The reason for doing this is that some people have incorrectly typed their email address in their profile and I end up getting all their "watch this topic" messages bouncing back to me and filling up my inbox. Then I need to track them down and ask them to correct their address. Better to just get it right from the start.

As always, I won't use your email addresses to fill your inbox with SPAM and I won't sell them or do anything else like that.
