Re: What to do against fake users registering?
Thanks for your help.
in my knowledge, most xoops site will have less than 5 registration a day. so if the admin get following option, that will help a lot to admin
1. There should be form/field on the registration page, where the user can write why s/he want to join the forum. The admin should turn off this field on the preference setting (though i don't see any reason why the admin would turn off this option).
2. when the activation request mail is sent to admin, the above custom message should be included in the mail so the admin can decide if s/he want to approve it or not.
3. on the mail to admin for notification, there should be following links
a. "Send activation link to User"
b. "Activate user".
c. "Ban this IP for future registration"
This will save a lot of time for the admin, as at present the admin need to login to the admin module, search the user and then activate it.
