email validation?

It occurs to me that the problem with TR and trolls could be wiped out if the submitted e-mail address was validated before access to posting is allowed.

I had a little investigation and noticed that you can create an account and start posting without any ?validation?. Now with 99% of other forums making you submit a valid e-mail address and then confirming by mail / link - should TR not do the same??

The current system seems lazy.

Some days, I think I should just stay home and stick to Diablo and not bother. Seems, I don't get any of my post's right.

The way i read it, Onbliss was responding to Spud boy.

You're okay. You communicate just fine as I see it.

See Tigger understood me, correctly. I was responding to Mr.Spuddy; he was asking Tigger to give him a break. After all that he has been doing to Tigger, I thought the comment would have been appropriate from Tigger's mouth.

As an admin on another forum

by Maevinn In reply to email validation?

Having active moderators is crucial. When the community KNOWS that there is a moderator around who can handle these types, they help ID them, and it happens pretty quickly. I was a moderator on a forum that had no active admin, and only a few active mods--it quickly deteriorated to the point that it was no fun for me to be there anymore. Now I'm an admin on a forum with 2 other active admins, and a slew of talented and active mods--very few problems. When something comes up, it's handled promptly and appropriately--if anything comes up that they can't handle, they notify the admin's and we step in. Having an active staff just for moderating will resolve most of the problems. And--mods don't have to be experts. Most of mine aren't. They are volunteers that help man the place, handle administrative tasks.
