    Wouldn't you like a faster and more effective Signup process?
    ( I have updated this post with current xF login/sign up form, as the other one seemed a bit confusing)
    Take a look at the following screenshots:

    1. Enter e-mail as usual and click the sign up button.

    2. A validation link should be sent shortly after.

    3. Once the validation link has been clicked, user will be taken to the next page where they can enter their password and complete the other fields (D.O.B, Gender, Time zone etc. This already exists!).

    Benefits:
    0(zero) unconfirmed users to deal with.
    Discourages spammers
    Stops spambots

    What do you guys think? Do you support it or not?

    I like it because I won't have any invalidated users to deal with, but I dislike it because if there's a problem with certain mail providers I won't know unless it's reported, whereas if I have multiple domains being unconfirmed then I can investigate the domain.

    We could extend the phrase as follows:

    "Please follow the link sent to email@***.com
    Didn't receive an e-mail?"

    or something along those lines.

    I think your previous screenshots actually better illustrated what you're suggesting... maybe you should include them as well as alternate examples.

    Interesting concept, confirming your account before completing registration.

    Not sure what I think of that really.

    The thing is, this method doesn't allow administrators to have open registrations that don't require e-mail addresses. (I'm not sure if this is even a feature/option right now; if not, then it's not an issue).

    I don't think that's an option at the minute Nick. Each account requires a unique e-mail address, it's hard-coded.

    Ah, okay. I know it was an option with vBulletin, just wasn't sure if it was with XF as well.

    I would like this feature implemented.

    I do not know how many unconfirmed registrations I get, but they make the member count go up and take up usable user names.

    I really would like to see this in xenForo.
