Suggestion for BuddyPress "Account Creation Page"
We have a new BP/Multisite site.
Everday I see new members register and show up in the following sections:
Activity on the site
But the problem is if you go to site.com/members it only shows the ones that have actually activated their accounts by clicking the link in the email they received after registering new account.
These members who have actually activated their accounts are way less than who have registered and never activated their accounts.
It makes me think that many of the new registrations are coming from spammers who just want to register and spam your site but once they find out that they have to activate their accounts etc then they just don’t bother any more.
I am wondering if it is a good idea to discourage spammers by putting a text note on the account creation page such as:
You will get a link in email to activate your account.
Currently a message similar to the above shows up after people register for the new account.
But I think it is also a good idea if they know before account creation so that they don’t bother if they are spammers.
Just a thought.
