Authorisation Email to gain access to WoP

Min 3 years ago updated by World of Potter 3 years ago 3

Just a simple idea to add an authorisation step before users can access the site. Will vastly limit trolls.


So a user will sign up to the site but their account hasn't gone "live" yet, an automatic email will be sent to the email they registered with with a link to click to authorise. Once they've clicked that, and shown that the email is valid, then they can access the site :)

It is very easy to generate fake emails, so this wouldn't really help with trolls :(

A wonderful suggestion! Trolls really don't want to wait on an email before it is they are joining the site, which I agree will limit it.

Not only will they not want to wait for the email, but then they cannot use a fake email that they made up.
