 Membership Approval
Can we implement a membership approval like VFTT.org has? I had to get a couple of people to vouch for me to Tim before I could join that board.
Lately, this place has been plagued by a troll of the largest proportions, to the extent that it is really diminishing the quality of the board.

BrianL, HikingisEZ, Youallblow.
It's apparent that there is one person who's sole purpose is to come here and troll our members and cause problems. Multiples accounts. Belligerent attitude. Always hijacks a good thread to make it about something personal. It's a pain in the ass to read through some of these threads because every third post is this ass clown railing on one of our members about something.

Please do something about it.

Thanks for the idea, that's certainly something to consider. Unfortunately I think we're dealing with one individual who gets his jollies from being disruptive. I hesitate to make a major change like that which makes joining the forums here more difficult. If I have to do so, then I will but for now I'd like to keep membership as it is.

 Re: Membership Approval
I found a new feature that might be helpful for this (I don't remember this in the original forum software). If you click on a user's profile there is a choice to "add friend" or "add foe". If you "add foe" then it will block most of that users posts. The friend/foe thing can also be managed through your settings. Not perfect, but a good way to ignore specific trolls while keeping the membership open as-is (which I think has worked well here in the past).

And I remember members of VFTT railing against the referral policy...
