    Interesting. I suppose its no coincidence Extra just discontinued theirs.

    I was amazed this wasn't a standard feature.

    Nice one Andy!

    It would be awesome if you could add the option to automatically close the welcome conversation because newbies tend to reply there with their "thread" instead of creating a real thread!!

    Btw if I understand correctly this add-on will start the conversation only after the member has got his email verified, right?

    I have dejavu andyb. I've already got a mod installed that does this. I also have options to automatically leave the convo.

    Hello @AndyB,

    Is this a brand new add-on?

    I notice the one I currently use has been deleted - https://xenforo.com/community/threads/new-user-conversation-deleted.49561/ - and just wondered if you'd perhaps taken it over or developed your add-on in response to it being discontinued?

    It's an add-on that I believe helps to make new members feel a but more at home and encourages them to start posting and get involved, so if yours does the same thing and is supported I will likely make the switch. (y)

    Thanks for the PM Andy. :D

    In short, yes; this add-on was independently developed at the request of another admin specifically to send the conversation after registration has been confirmed. (y)

    If its the one from ExtraLicense that option doesn't work properly in 1.4 if I remember correctly.

    Interesting to know. I haven't upgraded to 1.4 yet so it might be worth swapping to this add-on before I do. Thanks for the heads-up. (y)

    Andy, just an idea but, surely there is a hook you can tap into when registration confirms. (better than a cron running 250 times a day) ;)

    How about those board that disable Email Confirmation? Just accept Registration right away.
