#5426: Read only capabilities before account activation
 Reporter:  henry.wright  |      Owner:

 Severity:  normal        |   Keywords:
 In an attempt to encourage more users to activate their account after
 they've completed the registration form, please see the following
 suggestions for an enhancement:

 1. User completes the standard registration form
 2. Send activation email if registration form data passes validation
 3. Auto log-in the user with 'read only' capabilities (note the user is
 not yet an activated member)
 4. The user can browse around, view their uncompleted profile and so on...
 but as soon as they try to do anything such as send a private message,
 make an activity update etc they are shown a "please activate your account
 using the activation email we've sent you" template notice
 5. At some point in time, the user activates their account via the
 activation email they've received
 6. The user is now an activated member with full capabilities

 The 'read only' stage before activation gives the user a glimpse of what
 can be done on the BuddyPress site. Also, I think removing the 'closed
 door' before activation gives a more friendly feel to the community.
