@Michael-Pfaff There's a plugin for that: https://github.com/julianlam/nodebb-plugin-registration-notification
Oh nice! Not seeing it in ACP. @julianlam Do you have plans to update it to be compatible with v1.4.0?
To secure the forum from spambots a CAPTCHA would be handy. On our site we use playthru, a free non-annoying CAPTCHA.
What's the URL of your site?
Yep, it looks good. It will definitely cut down on bot registrations, but will not stop human spammers. IP bans and post deletions will take care of those.
