Automatic activation

Post by skorpy on March 14th 2007, 10:45 pm

It would be nice to have Automatic activation on our forums..We only have either Admin or user to activate the accounts.

Would be easier for guests too register and the activation done once registration is completed.Obviously still have Admin and user activation as an option.

I dont know if this has already been mentioned.

I agree. This way they can post immediately. Sometimes they forget about activating their accounts and end up not joining.

I disagree. It would make it far too easy for spambots and spammers to sign up.

thats true, but only if your forums are open to guests making topics to begin with.

i dont think it is a good idea as the activation was first made as a safety measure for any board

But isn't the point of the suggestion that you become a member without activation, so they wouldn't be guests.

A suggestion yes/no will be better. I'm against, no activation is an open dorr for flooder, spamers or hackers...

You know, as an admin, you can activate the account, in the menu "inactive users". I do it regularly here

Yes but activating the account in the menu is the same as activating it in email..no different.

I mean Just instant activation once registering. Razz

EDIT: plus surely with it being your forum any spammers,botts etc can be banned by yourself if any occurs

But surely it's better if the spammers can't get in in the first place? An admin can't be on 24-7, and in the time the admin is away from the board the spammer will have had plenty of time to post up illegal or pornographic links/images, which looks bad on you and your board and compromises the safety of your members.

So, I'm still very strongly against this suggestion. I don't think it'll happen to be honest, because of the big security problem it poses.

I'm or it...

I don't count on using, but if people want to play with fire, my reaction would be to say: let them burn

So I think it should be an option

well i agree cause
even if i activate everytime still they forget about the site and never come back but
if it is automatic they can get in the site and if they like they stay.
i have activated like 150 or members and from them 70% never came to the site next time

If its an option ,then it doesnt effect those of you who does not wish to use it,because you still have the option for a user activation or admin activation.So just stay with one of them. I am asking for another choice which would be the third choice of a instant activation if anyone on here wishes too use it.

I am for it as long as it's a 3rd option so if you want it you can use it and if you don't want spammers - don't.

It shouldnt affect those of you who do not wish to use it anyway,only the ones who chooses to use it on their boards.so surely its up too them?

Unless of course it affect everyone elses forums and this board?

Spam can be controlled and the culprit deleted/banned?

Obviously I can understand those that think they may not be able to keep up with deleteing spam etc...It cant be such a bad thing that other forums use it as an option

If people decide they dont like it,you have the choice to return back too user or Admin activation.Obviously this is only a suggestion,you may be completely right and me wrong Very Happy

Skorp, as an idea, Tristou was deleting accounts by the 100's every 2 days ^^"

Of course, those wishing to try their luck are always welcome Razz
