Still todo:

  • When the user attempts to re-register with that email, or reloads the page, offer to resend the confirmation email
  • Offer to allow the user to change their email address on the post-register screen if they've typo'd.

In 10028:

Login: Don't change the activation key upon every resend.

Changing the activation key without changing the email address can cause expired links to be used when delayed.

See #5278.

In 10029:

Login: Allow users to resend the signup confirmation email.

To trigger this, either the user needs to click the resend link on the post-signup profile-info page, or attempt to sign up again using the same username or email.

The emails are rate limited depending on the age of the account, and also based on some anti-spam measures.

See #5278.
