Lightbulb should have to confirmation e-mail with registration

You should setup the vbulletin to force people to click on a link in the confirmation e-mail to finalize the registration. It'll help keep spammers off the board (every little bit helps)

I added the 'must be over 13' thingy, too. Thoughts on that?

I can force them to put in the bday year. Maybe a trivia question? what is Vanilla Ice's real name?
