Updated: 2010/05/22 Trying out new Ning feature. Instead of requiring approval (which was a manual process by me and was slowing down new signups) I've turned on the "new signups quiz" feature that Ning is now offering. We'll see how that goes....please keep an eye out for spammers.
Hmm, seems like we've been inundated with these fake blog posts and bogus user id signups (i.e. spam) lately. I've been trying to manually stay on top of it so that we can keep the signup process for Vermicomposters fully open (i.e. not requiring manual approval), but things are getting out of hand lately so I decided to try turning on manual admin approval for new signups for a while to see how that works.
Please let me know if this makes sense and what you think. Hopefully it doesn't hurt the openness of the site. I'm wonder if invites of friends also require approvals.
If you are new and are trying to sign up, first register normally then to speed things up feel free to email me at s t e v e n at vermicomposters.com to nudge me to approve your profile, if you can please include a link to your profile page in your email so that it is easier for me to find and approve you.
Thanks and sorry for the inconvenience.
