@Adam Howard Thanks bud, I found the second one first and tried it. It does what I wanted. It's funny you know, with all the notices and emails this system is capable of putting out, it's weird that it wouldn't out of the box notify the most important person there was a new registration awaiting his approval.
Perhaps we shall see what the future brings because these guys I'm sure are hard at work developing the latest and greatest in forum platforms. I can't wait to be done with all the tinkering and open the doors to our members. Xenforo rocks as they say LOL
