Description: When registering a new account one gets redirected to the home page and nothing else happens. This is extremely unintuitive and most people including me think their registration failed. Looking at how EOL does it we should redirect to a static thanks page with the following content:

title=Thanks for registering
Thanks for registering!

Comment: Confirmation page now in place.
