Broken account verification process

    Question

  • Can you please fix your account verification process?

    Having to reply to a random thread, requesting verification, is a joke. I understand you're trying to combat spam but you are also actively discouraging people from creating new accounts to post legitimate support questions.

  • In the TechNet Script Gallery and the TechNet Wiki users are required to have a certain minimum number of recognition points before they can post script samples or Wiki articles. That would be far worse in the forums. Before the account verification was required in the forums, we saw lots of spam posts with all kinds of hyperlinks and images. If you have a suggestion for an alternate procedure to prevent spammers posting links and images, post it here:
