Registration settings
« on: April 19, 2017, 04:30:08 AM »
Hello folks,

I am having some difficulties in making some settings under "Registration" section.
I want all new members to have immediate registration without admin approval, but instead of that always there is a list of new members who are waiting for approval. Here are my settings in admin panel. Should I change anything else or am I doing something which is not correct?

Thanks! :)

Are you using something like StopForumSpam?
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

Yes, I am using anti spam CleanTalk mod. -> http://custom.simplemachines.org/mods/index.php?mod=3851
Should I disable this?

That mod is putting people into approval when it thinks they are spammers... disabling it would mean you'd get more spam.

I removed the mod, but I will see how the things will go.
If there is more spam than I will return the mod back. If there is no problem I will leave it like it is.
I'll wait to see if there is a new member in the list without the mod.

Thanks @Arantor, you are very kind.

Your sign-up process is the key to preventing spammers and specifically whether or not you have required questions and what type.
