I see on many websites and especially on forums that people need to register and confirm email addresses before they can actually make any activity on the website but I have one of the most important question in my mind which is
Do these websites actually register users?
I don’t think so. The reason I say No is because I hardly see the site owners and admin hardly uses my email to generate any user based activity apart from on my birthday I get an email from all those forums where I am registered and vBulletin sends that automatically. Nothing for rest of the year.
So in my opinion these websites ask users to register for the sake stopping spam. Are you doing the same mistake or you want your user to be a part of your community.
