A Community of Labradoodle & Goldendoodle Lovers

Admin Question - Would you have signed up if...

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"?

the spammers are selling stuff (nothing you'd want to buy)...  It's a profit motivated behavior, hence their persistence. :(

My initial reaction to the idea of pre-approving new members is the same as yours - I don't think so.  But I want to get solid feedback, so I can go back to ning and tell them that their suggestion was not well received (if that is the case).

That's a tough one.  Truthfully, I don't think I would have not knowing what wonderful people are members.  I know Jan it must really be a pain for you with these recent spammers.  I'm hating to open all their pages and find out they are not ligitimate, but I have found some "one namers" that were and I would have hated if I didn't get to welcome them with a red ribbon.  LOL  Let's see what everyone else says.
