I recently just registered for a Stack Exchange account through this site (http://meta.stackoverflow.com). When I registered, nothing happened (the form doesn't redirect), so I registered 4 more times, and finally I decided to check my email.

I had 5 emails from do-not-reply@stackexchange.com! I think this site is confusing many people by not telling them to check their emails. I know this isn't just because of my browser's cache, because I cleared my browser's cache and tried registering again (for the 2nd time), and the same thing happened.

Can we get something like this when successfully registering?

Verification email sent

There was a bug in the success path for the signup form - it was not displaying the correct page.

This has been corrected - after a successful signup, you will get a confirmation page telling you to check your email.
