Re: My only complaint about bbPress
I’m totally with you on this but maybe for different reasons.
People are impatient and on the internet, they want it NOW. I’ve got hundreds of never logged on sign ups plus I paid good money on AdWords to acquire them.
With emailed passwords, there’s 2 weak points. Your mail server, and the new members mail server. If the email doesn’t arrive within their expectations of time, they register a new username. If either mail server experiences an outage, there are 2 registrations on the memberlist that ‘Never’ logged on and aren’t likely because “that site sucks”.
A registration form, customizable fields user chooses their own password and a captcha in the form. Now that makes sense to me.
