Re: Allowing New Users to pick their own passwords
Sir, that is a brilliant idea and one that is of great interest to me as well.
Half of my forum members have ‘Never’ logged on so I surveyed them as I have their email address. In a sample of 100 surveys sent, 28 replied –
* 17 couldn’t recall receiving an email
* 7 couldn’t remember why they didn’t complete registering
* 4 said the password provided in the email wasn’t inviting
I think the current registration functionality is fine for a hobby forum but once you start paying for traffic, you will never receive an optimum return on investment.
