I am receiving a deluge of approval requests and I don’t understand why.
These are called “flags” according to the constant emails that I get telling me that I need to pay attention to them.
When I review the “flags” they are classified with the description “needs approval”. No further information is available. I’m not sure in what facet I am “approving” these things, or what it actually is that I am approving.
Either way I am pretty sure that I am adding zero value as an administrator because I just click 100% of the approve buttons.
I am not expecting to approve anything. If these are related to new user registrations on the forum and granting them permission to be a user, then this is unexpected as well. Below is my current setting for new user accounts.
Lots of questions:
- What actually is a “flag” and why are these flagged
- This lack of explanation is a potential area for improvement, how do I report this suggestion to people that care?
- If these “flags” are related to new people signing up, how do I auto-approve all of them in advance?
Note: I am using SSO so 100% of my forum are preauthorized (and paid-in-full!) to be there.
