    Hi forum admins and XenForo members!

    Please vote on a simple poll (votes are not public!). I'm curious about what type of registration admins choose most.

    Thank you for your vote!

    Yes. Always. It makes so much more sense from a usability point of view - not even from a spam point of view. Just general usability.

    If they do not provide a valid email, it will ultimately only cause confusion when they are expecting an email, e.g. they've Watched a thread or forum or when they need an email via the Lost Password process.

    They might miss out on important communications from fellow members (Conversation emails) or admins.

    I think a valid email is extremely important.

    I have edited the poll to remove the public vote option and closed the other thread.

    I don't think continued voting will change the result...
