  • Users Awaiting Confirmation

    I have had a couple of times when a user "sneaked in" somehow and didn't require my confirmation. What is most likely the cause of this? Is there a lagtime before it shows up in that box (from the time the email hits my inbox?) Or perhaps they were part of the next group and I hit accept all and they got in? Or perhaps the admin did something?

    Do you have both email confirmation and user moderation enabled? If so then users won't show up in the moderation queue until they have confirmed their email.

    What should happen is:

    1) The user registers and is put into the email confirmation group.

    2) The user clicks the activation link in the email they are sent.

    3) vBulletin activates the user and puts them into the moderation group.

    4) The admin approves or denies the registration:

    Admin CP -> Moderation -> Moderate Users
