Are your email verification emails actually going out? I tried to sign up with your instance first, but never received the confirmation email. Could also have something to do with my different email receiving setup (forwardemail.net so I can use my domain), but I got the email from this instance successfully.
Nope! Doesn't show up at all. The email I attempted to use was firstname.lastname@example.org, if that helps? Maybe you can check logs to see what happened or something?
