Post by Tangshixian on November 16th 2012, 4:13 pm

My name is Tang,

I recently see one of my friend website and his forum was having a massive registrations non stop mins by mins, it was like days to hundreds of members. I'm kind of worried that this issue may happens to our forums, i wish to hear from everyone here.

Hi, I have never heard of a case like that here at Forumotion. If you are worried though, there are ways to prevent spam registration.

You can either set activation to:
=> Self: members must confirm their registration through email.

=> Admin: all new members must be approved by an admin. (Not recommended for high traffic forums)

These options can be found at:

1. Administration Panel (advanced mode)
2. Users & Groups Tab
3. Users options (on the left, under Users)

Hello,

What's your question exactly ?

To avoid this kind of situation, you can choose the registration by Admin confirmation only.
Admin Panel >> Users & Groups >> Users options >> New accounts activation >> Admin.

What's the URL of your friend's forum ?
