Private forum entry requests ( 16:26:16 SatJul 12 2003 )

Why is it that non members of my board can even request entry to private forums? There is no way to even let them in if they aren't a member, and we get loads of requests to have access which cannot even be granted. Its hard to sort out who the new members are that want acces, and the non members who try to get access, I'm afraid that I'm going to miss somone who wants in.

Might be somthing to look into for the next version?

Not sure I follow what you mean Callak DeathWing. Do you have MBA on your entire board? Or forums specific ones? Either would send an email to you and other admins of your board and would offer a accept or reject option. What board is this in reference to? Also, are you just talking about the feature we ahve here? The Members of the board, Mods & Admins Posting Restriction that we use here for most of the forums? If so that is easier then MBA to deal with because you don't have to give access-once they post on one forum open to Users, Mods & Admins they are added to the memberlist and have access to any 'Members of the board, Mods & Admins forums.

No, sorry, I'm referring to Ed's Lounge http://denim.bbboy.net/edslounge we have one forum with limited access because of it's content. The problem is we have people that are members of bbboy on other forums that come in, and request access, but have never posted on the board before, so are not members, and thus, can't even be granted access if we wanted to. We have been getting a lot of clutter trying to tell the lagitimate requests from the ones that aren't.

Ahhhh, I see what you mean. You might want to change that and uncheck the Requests box in the forum settings and then edit the description to say PM the admins for access-I think that any registered BbUsername could request access, despite the actual posting resitrictions on the forum itself. You might want to talk to ed about it and see if he thinks it needs changing somehow. You could also hide that forum and then that way no one could see it and maybe you could PM potential new people with a link to it. :smile:

Question Pamster? where we have the ability to make new names under the same account, could that also be a possibility of not having been a member?

Yes they can.. Just click "Accept". :smile: They don't have to be a member of your board to be able to be accepted.

Ahhh yes... inobservation strikes again! Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I never realized for some stupid reason that the "To accept or reject this request, please visit: (blah blah)" line in the email might just point to where they can be accepted and rejected.

Anyone have a dunce cap? :thankyou:

Awww don't say that Callak, it happens. Heck the other day I was in the store and I asked the clerk, "Where are the water filters?" and she pointed to them-EYE level even and I had went right past without even seeing them. It happens to everyone. Just glad you can see now where to get that taken care of in the email. :biggrin:
