A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers
If we had this ning community set up such that you'd have to wait to be "approved" before your account became active, would you still have joined?
Background: There is a spammer, or team of spammers, that keep joining our community. Ning support recommends we turn on "Approve new members before they can join" to control the problem. We're concerned that the extra step (waiting to be approved), might interfere with real people wanting to join our community.
What do you think? Would you have joined if you had to wait maybe 24 hours to be "approved"?
