All,

I've received a couple PM requests from potential new users who wish for me to bypass the email verification step.

This will not happen. You must verify your email address.

Thank you.

Are you having a ton of fake registrations popping up lately? A forum I run had 20 spammers register in an hour, so I turned off new user registrations. So frustrating.

Not a ton, but a few. Mainly Chinese and Indian IP's.

I have a multi step process for new users, and yes it is extremely frustrating, but it is better than the spam hell of a couple of years ago.

I hear ya. I check all the IP addresses of the people registering on my forum to see if it matches where they say they're from. If it's way off, I just delete or ban them, and if it's a little bit off I just put them into a moderated class so they can't just post whatever to the forum.
