I want you to add in all the widgets an extra option besides "hide from anonymous users" and "hide from registered users" ->
"Hide from unverified users"
I think it's so obvious that it doesn't really need explaining why.
TBH I've been an admin/mod in several forums over my life and I always hated the idea of changing usernames in the first place
^^ This, usually. It's worse when they start using a new set of graphics to go with their "new persona". To be fair however, I can also remember picking a really stupid username and being glad I could change it. shudders
I've noticed a few users click login, attempt to login, fail, and then leave.
We should increase our conversions by automatically opening accounts with the details provided (and prompting users to enter details like their email/username or w/e is missing).
How can we implement this functionality?
