Opt-in registration

    Hello folks,

    It would be nice to have an opt-in registration option. It would cut off the numbers of people/bots creating fake accounts.

    WP would send an opt-in email, confirming the account creation. If no confirmation is sent within x days, the account would be dropped off the database. It would keep everything clean and maintainable.

    Thanks.

    A last-used timestamp would indeed prove very useful for pruning unused accounts.

    It works this way in WordPress 3.0 running Multi-site. I don't know if it will do it on single site.

    That said: http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wp-opt-in/

    Also for a last-used timestamp, see http://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/amr-users/ for the best user lists around.
