Post subject: Email verification mod

Hi there,

for phpBB3 I have found a mod that verifys emailaddresses by letting new users click a link in an email BEFORE the activation request is sent to the admin. That means there have to be two clicks before the account is activated. This works great for me on phpBB3.
Now I would like to have this also for phpBB2.

1) User creates a new account
2) User gets an email and has to click a link (standard feature)
3) Admin gets a link and has to click a link to activate the account (standard feature)

So, I would like to merge the two standard features.

Is there a mod for this or can anybody code such a mod?

Thanks!

/Holger

Sometimes when I fear a troll will register a new member behind a proxy, I change the phpbb_users table user_active 1 to 0. Then every new member have to be checked and here I check, if the ip-address is real or a proxy, before I change user_active 0 to 1 in phpMyAdmin.

I have approx 300 new registrations every day.
I already have some enhancements to make life easier for me as admin. But this would be the perfect solution. It works great in phpBB3. Nearly no spamregistrations at all.

My spam registrations as member vanished completely, when I installed bbantispam, but the troll issue is much difficult to solve. I only get 5 new members each week, so thatīs why I can carefully check each new member.
