Lack of interest Weighted member signup management


Well-known member
I suppose similar ideas are somewhere on the list, but it would be great to have a member management system for new registrations which applied weighting to the pending registrations! This would be very valuable for boards with a lot of signups......

Weighting has been used for many years for determining the validity of emails - so why not apply it to signups?

Such a system would work, just like SPAM filters, on a points basis.

As an example, I find that those who signup up overnight are usually spammers from Asia. So I might give them -2 points for signing up between 10PM Western time and 7am Eastern. Certain email domains are almost definitely NOT spammers (,, etc.), so these registrations could be weighted to sail through if so desired. There are lots of tests which could be applied.
