first i must say my site is about harry potter so i have many visitor under 15 years or lower.
my problem is too many inactive users per day.( about 20 )
i do anything for help new visitors in how to register and write docs in FAQ about succeed registeration and trouble shooting.and in the register.php page i change lang files and mark all need parts with STAR (*) and describe to enter email without "www" and show an example " smith@yahoo.com"
i cant enable automatic registeration for some reasons ( double users - spamming - ... )
and even i dont want too many users
this is annoy me because i give 3-4 posts per day in forums from these users : "i want register at site" - " help me for register" - so on and 2-3 email in this case.
so what can i do more than this to reduce number of inactive users and then posts in forum and that kind of emails?
im waiting to see your clues

I am not sure I understand what you are asking.

Are you asking how to reduce the number of posts that ask for help with logging in or registering? If so, what are the most common solutions to the problems they are having?

i dont know what im looking for too !!
just want share with you my problems with childerens.
i open almost everywhere for anon users to view and also open some part ( news submit/comments) for write.
but about they questions they just wailing and crying at me and other moderators.
- some of them have no email for registeration ( about 20%)
- some of them didnt know what is activation and never register at a site with activate link before ( about 50%)
- some of them input bad emails ( www.smith@yahoo.com - @yaahoo.com - @yaho.com - so on ) ( about 20%)

i think the only way for this problem is open auto activation for underage users.
is there anyway to have a register form that change with the ages?
for example when user in the registeration form click at " finish " go to a page with " im under 13 " - " im over 13 " and when click on first link going to auto activate page.
what about this?

forgive me if it is a silly question: but why not auto-approve all new users?

I would like to comment on your site in general its fantastic im only just learning Arabic ive been taking lessons this site will help me with my Arabic reading skills so I will visit frequently. As Herko said opening the site freely to all might be a good idea however if your average user is under the age of 15 and you only want people who are interested in Harry potter it may be hard to police the trash if they don’t have a valid email when signing up just a thought.

good qestion and i said answer before
i dont want many users at all because i want active users not just visitors
and i want my users have a valid email for send emails from site.
and i open everywhere in my site for anon users if possible ( not forum or user list )
i have 7-8 lucky registered per day and 15-16 unluck.
i delete all inactive users after 5 days with chron job.

What about a visual banner/ flash image something that they can click on to register on the home page dedicate a block maybe this will get there attention.
