Solved Selective Membership

Post by angelique510 on January 21st 2011, 6:06 am

I have my forum controls set so that only members can read and reply to messages. I have it set that all new member registrations have to be approved by me. I want new registrations to have to fill in an "introduce yourself" or "why do you want to be a member of this forum?" box that I will see when I get a member registration request. They have something like that for several Yahoo Groups. If someone tries to sign up and I don't recognize their username, I don't know whether or not I should approve them.

Another option would be to have an info box pop up upon registration that says "Please use your real name for a user name so I know who you are and can approve you." Is there a way to do that?

Thanks,
~A

Well make a forum which has the option for guests to create a new thread, there they can write what username they signed up with & the information you require.
