I have now tested this on both of my sites and have confirmed using Peggy as the Guinea pig: Since RC2 users attempting to register on either site are either getting NO confirmation email or if they do it takes them back to the page where they get this: This is pretty huge. Since RC2 I can confirm all attempts to join on MyDogDallas were put into "Awaiting email confirmation" status and have to be manually changed to "Valid". please note that it does NOT show that any users are awaiting approval. I can't tell how many people have tried to join Halforums as I have 1000+ users and can't sort all users by potential join date. By the way, the Registration is NOT set to manual.
