Not approving members?
« on: May 05, 2012, 07:23:41 AM »
I have admin approve on and when I go to the new profile... The only thing I see is "approve"... Why isn't there an "unapproved" button there too? It would save you some time... then you don't need to go to the process of deleting the account of rejecting the account in the admin board.

Hi JonezJeA,

an "unapprove" button would delete the account, isn't it?
If so there is already the entry "delete this account" under the menu "action". ;)


Take a peek at what I'm doing! ;D

Agreed but why calling the button in that case "delete" and not reject like in the admin board?

Because it's one 'delete' function for both approved and unapproved members.
To assume is to hope that those who came before had the presence of mind and capacity to implement the dreams of those who would come after.

You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain. It seems you have chosen which, and now I must do the same.

Then if the admin panel says "reject" I'd change it to "delete"...

Have to agree, the terminology is misleading,

I suspect quite a few people choose "reject" and do not realise that the member gets deleted. It needs to be clearer and maybe say "Reject and Delete" and "Reject, delete, and send mail"

Yes, but it's obvious that if you reject a registration you are "abandoning" it and thus deleting it, isn't it?

Reject I think could also mean that you simply remove the entry from the "approval list" but you keep the account...even if it doesn't make a lot of sense... :P

That's much like "Oh I don't want the present but I'll keep it anyway"... :P

Well it's certainly something that I need to point out to new Admins because several times they haven't realised the full implication.

"Remove" instead of "Reject" perhaps?...no, it can lead to doubts that too...delete.
