Interesting Observation by Mod RE: Approval Queue - no IP address listed

You can see the discrepancy in dates and the fact that no IP address is listed. Is this normal to see a delay in an approval showing up in a queue? What could cause this? Are registrations saved in a draft somewhere?

Also, why would the IP address be omitted?

Me too
I just had one with no IP address showing
I cannot see any reason for it - they dont seem to have changed any permissions
When I go to their account in the ACP, I can see their IP address and it looks legit

Check the user change log for this user - has their account status been changed to "Awaiting approval" ?

It looks to me like this is an existing user whose status has been changed so they are re-appearing in the approval queue and has been around long enough that their registration IP address has been removed.

What is your "Delete IP usage data after:" setting in Logging options set to? If it is less than 150 days, then their IP address has already been removed.

Thank you for the explanation. This is helpful.
