Quote from: Arantor on July 02, 2012, 07:54:16 PMWell, how about putting in a second email box for confirmation (to make sure they actually put the right thing in), plus building in a contact-page by default?
Quote from: Arantor on July 02, 2012, 07:54:16 PMI don't necessarily think we need to make it as complicated as is being intimated. If the contact page is available built in, people can contact the admin rather than coming here, because they feel like they have a way to contact admins rather than here.

We look forward to your presence online.Our administrator has to approve applications, so it may take up to 3 days for your application to be approved. Please be patient. If you have not heard back from us by then on the email address you provided (firstname.lastname@example.org), please drop us a note at email@example.com with as much information as you can provide (ID chosen, email address, etc.) and we will look into it. Since you will be receiving an email from us, there is a chance it could be misdirected into a spam, bulk, or junk email folder (or even, simply discarded). If necessary, please "whitelist" our email address: firstname.lastname@example.org so you will be sure of receiving it.We suggest that you write down the above information, in case you need it, as it will not be repeated anywhere!
