User Registration Changes
New user accounts now have to be approved by an admin before they can post.
So what does this mean for new users?
It means it could be a few days before your account is created. Approvals will likely be processed once every few days.... give or take a week.
I hate to do that, since it means extra hoops for new accounts. Yet... well... over the last week we started regularly getting over 30 spam/etc accounts being registered a day despite the 'verify email' policy being enabled. So here we are. More work for new accounts but significantly less for me.
