    We really rely on user approval on our forum, and it seems to be working perfectly for us. Given that, I would reevaluate my settings first, then disable all plugins and slowly reenable them until I find an issue. I'm not sure how this could be a plugin issue, but it's a place to start.

    More information might be more conducive to discussion. What plugins are you using? What theme are you using? What specific version of Vanilla? What are your registration settings?

    I'm not sure if it matters in this case, but are you also requiring email confirmation? At any rate, more information might help others figure out the issue.

    According to the way you posted here, it looks you're using Vanilla 2.0 instead of 2.1. If that is the case, have you tried upgrading?

    Check yourforum/index&p=role/defaultroles to see which roles should be applied to applicants based on your settings (and change that there if you like to)
