Hi.

Two of the features I've enabled on the forum is both an email validation and an admin validation for newbie registrations.

The following is the blurb you will see in the email validation itself:

QUOTE
{membername},
This email has been sent from http://forums.mosaicmusings.net/index.php.

You have received this email because this email address
was used during registration for our forums.
If you did not register at our forums, please disregard this
email. You do not need to unsubscribe or take any further action.

Activation Instructions

Thank you for registering.
We require that you "validate" your registration to ensure that
the email address you entered was correct. This protects against
unwanted spam and malicious abuse.

To activate your account, simply click on the following link:

browser).

If you could not validate your registration by clicking on the link, please
visit this page:

{A link will be displayed here}

It will ask you for a user id number, and your validation key. These are shown
below:

User ID: {xxx}

Validation Key: {xxx}

Please cut and paste, or type those numbers into the corresponding fields in the form.

If you still cannot validate your account, it's possible that the account has been removed.
If this is the case, please contact an administrator to rectify the problem.

Thank you for registering and enjoy your stay!

Regards,

Collaboration feeds innovation. In the spirit of workshopping, please revisit those threads you've critiqued to see if the author has incorporated your ideas, or requests further feedback from you. In addition, reciprocate with those who've responded to you in kind.

In October, we added a new step in the new member validation process by enabling an Admin Approval step before newbies can begin posting at MM.

I've just updated the above topic with this added information.

As always, please email me should you have any questions at lkanter@mosaicmusings.net or cleo_serapis@yahoo.com.

These precautions are in place to prevent the hackers of the world that write code to troll sites looking for those forums that do not require validation steps, access. This works well for MM as they even if they provide a valid email and click that email validation link, they still must go through the admin validation, and we have a good idea of who these programmers are. Of course, there are REAL people that do this too, and we certainly do our best to ban then once they start posting non-poetry workshopping related topics. Wall.gif
