What do you think about admin approval for members? Proboards has the option where we can Restrict Registration so that Admin has to approve the account before they can post. I tend to turn mine on & off depending on if I’m getting hit with spammers. Some members don’t like having to wait for an account to be approved. I can see their point when some forums are not that active so your registration is pending approval for a long time. I’m on mine morning & night so approve or deny within a day.

The same for me

We might lose potential members because of the wait time

I view admin approval as kind of a hassle if I'm joining a new forum. If it's a forum that I really want to join, it won't usually deter me, but it is kind of disappointing to have to wait to participate.
