Require Email on Signup

Allow option for WriteFreely instances to require an email when signing up.


Brought up by CarbonTwelve, an admin for Wordsmith Social. He mentioned it in this post:

For various philosophical reasons WriteFreely doesn't require an email address upon new account registration. Aside from the obvious issues with password resets that I have already tended this also makes it difficult for platform admins to inform users of events happening on their account such as moderation decisions.

I feel that this should be a configurable option that instance admins can toggle to enable/disable email address requirement upon sign-up.


Configurable option that instance admins could toggle?
