    Hi all, I am leaving for 10 days and won't have internet access and ideally want to suspend new members from signing up during that process. Is there a way to do that?

    Also, is there a way to manually approve or disapprove new members BEFORE they are able to post?

    You can also setup moderation for new users, just in case some good members try to sign up.

    Oh question. So if I temporarily disable the new member registration, is there a way for me to post a message to 'wanna-be-new-members' so they're not just left hanging?
