In there, I found these options:
- Disable registration
- No activation (immediate access)
- By user (email verification) selected
- By admin
I switched to "By admin" and within minutes, besides my test, I already have two pending. My board is not popular so these are assumed to be bots.
My question is this: How do I know by reviewing new accounts if they are legitimate or not? I can view IP address, email address, and their choice of username. That's about it.
Based on that limited information, how does one make a decision if the account is legitimate or not? Is there a way to give them a short text box to provide additional information about themselves and why they seek an account?
Anything else I should know or should be doing? Thanks!
