Facilitate email address double-check for registration

Facilitate email address double-check for registration

Short, concise description of the idea
Users need help with double-checking their email address when signing up.

Full description of the idea
While it's just fact that people don't always make sure they give the correct email address when signing up for things, perhaps to create an account they should be required to enter their email address twice and then something would check that they are the same.

An ordered list of benefits

  • Users are more likely to use correct email
  • Fewer instances of frustration about being locked out of account
  • Fewer support requests about email typo problem
  • An ordered list of problems/issues involved

  • Users could copy/paste wrong email or simply type it wrong twice
  • This is only for initial account creation, not subsequent email changes
  • An organized list, or a few short paragraphs detailing suggestions for implementation

  • One email address field could be placed near the beginning of the account creation form and the other just before the submit button.
  • Users are responsible for signing up with the correct email address, but if this isn't hard to implement, it would probably be useful for them (and for Support =P).
