So the box doesn't send an E-mail out with an activation link? Shouldn't that simply be an option to turn on?I dont have any idea. Im not a mod and it has been 5 years since Ive joined the board. On SMF you just have to check a box to turn this on. But Im not sure if mods can access it or just the admin staff (as in roles in SMF).
I generally don't discuss security issues with software in Web Wide [W]readable places like this thread.
but as any of you could add an alt account to find out for yourself:
- Registration includes, a password with a mix of UPPER & lower case letters, and digits, as well as entering the contents of a visual CAPTCHA
- The email address registered with, is then sent an activation email.
The are all additions since I registered when the current version of the box opened,
four and a half years ago. (Hmm, might have required an activation email back then, but definitely not the other two.)
