Upon registering a second account for myself to test the notifications, etc, I noticed it didn't show me up in the ACP as needing to be approved. I had the Email Verification settings turned on, which never sent me out an email. Even after disabling it, it would not let me activate myself from the ACP or let me post, since I wasn't "activated".
I even tried to move my account to an Administrator group, to no avail. It still showed that I was not activated, and had no option to activate me in the ACP. Is this a bug (well known or new), or am I completely missing something / doing something wrong here?
