New registration validation code option

Post by Blindf8th »

To prevent unwanted Spam I'sd like to also require that new registration requests have to input a key (like when signing up here).

Is there some instructions to follow for a n00b! :D

Thanks again...

I double checked the option you listed and its already set to show it, but nothing appears on the registration page...

Thanks again...

I had no idea that the two seperate questions = the same resolution.

Someone also responded accidentally in the wrong thread, but I'll be more careful :D
