Admin notification of new registration

Not sure if this has been said previously...

Currently when the "New registration email validation" setting is set to "User then Admin Validation", an email is sent to the board admin advising of the registration. No issue there.

However, the notification email is sent to the admin before the user validates their account. I personally would prefer the notification email to be sent after the user validates - I'm not interested in registrations where the user hasn't validated.

Changing the current behaviour may not suit some people, so another option to choose before or after would suffice.

Just a suggestion :)

Sorry to bump this thread but I requested this feature several years ago and am appalled it hasn't been implemented yet. When I first requested it, you had the option of either email validation OR admin validation. "User then admin validation" was added to a later version and is a very poor implementation of what you and I have suggested for the reasons you gave.

Our board has been on Invision for over five years now and we have over 2,000 accounts. We have an ongoing problem with trolls trying to set up accounts with bogus email addresses. We need more than simple validation of email address. We need users to actively respond to the email notification before we even see their application. If they don't actively reply we're not interested in them as members and their application goes into the bit dust bin without us even seeing it. I'd give them two to four weeks to reply to the email before their application is deleted.
