Ask DN: Easiest way to get and display user list with email verification?

almost 7 years ago from , According to top sources: “Writes a lot of blog posts.”

Hi all,

I'm trying to build a website that will allow a user to sign their name to a statement (given on the website), confirm their signature via email, and then have the website display the list of users who have signed & verified. I'd also like to allow users to enter a URL that they'd like their name/signature to link to.

I realise something like this could be done using social logins, but I'm not able to afford any of the managed solutions (need capacity for somewhere around 2,000+ users a month), besides which I don't want to limit users adding their “signature” based on their social profiles (or lack thereof).

Are you aware of any existing products/ideas that I could use to accomplish this?

Many thanks in advance.
