Do unconfirmed/validating members show up in the members list?


Formerly CyclingTribe
For example, if a spammer registers as "Penis Enlargement Pills" - will this new - but unconfirmed member show up if I search the members list for Pills?

Also, will they be shown in the "Latest members" shortlist?

I'd personally prefer ALL new accounts to be invisible UNTIL they've validated their account (and/or been approved by admin if you have your board setup for that).

No, they don't appear.

The profile page is also only visible to administrators.
