I found out that my community has over 7000 registered but 'not activated' accounts. Instead of asking them to login to the site and ask for activation mail, I decided to send an email and asked them to reply with word "ACTIVATE" to activate their account. I thought not more than 50 will activate their accounts. The last time I had done it with vBulletin; only 10 out of 1000+ clicked on account activation link. But now, I've already received 400+ "ACTIVATE" mails and mails are still flooding in! Totally tired of activating all accounts manually Makes me wonder, whether we need to take another look at the account activation process.
