@JonofAllTrades I've yet to see a working example. web.mit.edu/newsoffice/2011/… they apparently showcase an implementation, link is on that page

comment Check the box to confirm your email address
@ChrisF Certainly annoying but users generally accept reasonable excuses, which could popup upon failure to paste into the confirmation textbox. I'm an advocate for email confirmation from the inbox but there are cases where it's beneficial to avoid this step

comment Ratings: 3 stars vs 5 stars. Why 5?
I see. I personally don't like star ratings at all. There are alternatives, depending. Ranking articles in relation to each other (selecting the superior article), when implemented properly, is much more accurate than starred ranking. Users make meaningful judgements, articles are ranked properly. Can eliminate clustering

@ChrisF can these functions not be disabled on the confirmation textbox with javascript?

comment Check the box to confirm your email address
I can imagine the occasional user speedily entering their email incorrectly, reading the label, ignoring the task and click the checkbox anyway. There can be no mistakes when requiring the email twice.

comment Should I combine these 2 mutually exclusive actions?
Unless there's something i'm missing, the user is unable to verify their email because your verification manager is broken, your verification instructions are inadequate or they are unable to gain access to their inbox. I wouldn't facilitate manual verification as a substitute for any of these cases.
