Do you hate the current ID verification system on L2boards?

Yes, I hate to need to log in to my email everytime I want to post something.
No, it is safer

I only post from home, i.e. a static IP, so this doesn't concern me personally. When I am in China I don't even try to log in on the forum. This would give them too nice a pretext to ban me :D

Nevertheless, I can see that this is annoying, like I personally find it annoying that I have to enter that Personal Identification Number on the keypad each time I log into the game. Either it's the lag, or my mouse has a mind of her own about double-clicks, but I often get double numbers I don't want and then have to restart clicking around again.

On the other hand, I remember that some years ago a considerable number of accounts were hacked, mostly in Greece and Poland, where many people play in internet cafes. So I can understand that NCsoft is adding an additional layer of security, saving them the work of having to deal with hundreds of customer service tickets about stolen accounts. Keep in mind, even though it's unwise, many people use the name of their character as account name and in the e-mail they used to create the account. With passwords like 12345 being widely used ...
Sometimes you have to protect people from their own stupidity :P

I log only from my pc at home, so the matter doesn't concern me directly. Which is odd, since I used to get the "memorize position" prompt every time I logged on a master account...

Going to start a post on the official board. The worst thing is that you actually need to log your mail too to verify the login. 3x Dumb! :P

Didn`t want this to be my 1st post but there are account activation issues with gmail. By that I mean that I didnt receive that mail.
Is it just me? or has it happened to other too. Anyway tried a new account with a yahoo mail and it worked.

Best regards.
