XF 1.2 Why some users go into Approval queue

    I'm a bit confused by this.

    I have set my forum so users don't need admin approval, they just need email confirmations.

    So I assume they would just become members of the registered usergroup and not need approval.

    However it seems that some people who join go into the list of Users Waiting Approval, but others don't.

    I thought it might be connected with this:

    Moderate registrations when this many warning flags are detected: 1

    However there are two people currently in the queue, one I can see has an email SFS, but the other one shows nothing in SFS for name, email or IP

    Is there a logical explanation for this?

    because flags have been detected whereby they are most likely to be spammers. in my case 100% of them are that go into approval mode.

    Then I don't understand why one person is not findable in SFS - negative results for email and IP, however his username is only 3 letters and SFS comes back sating it's too short to search - would that be the reason?

    It checks more than just SFS.
