Hi All,

I am trying to understand something with XenForo. Why do some users appear under the Users Awaiting Approval" section while some can register normally. I'm fairly new to this software, so I'm sure its something basic that I am overlooking.

Thanks,
- Matt

Check your Spam settings. They are probably getting caught by it because of username, IP connecting from or email address.

If you haven't enabled admin approval globally, then it will be that those users are being flagged by the anti-spam systems in place.

You can disable (or set it to reject users) this system in options: <domain>/admin.php?options/list/spam
