Does anyone know of any prior art for when you want to sign up for a website, but they review your account manually before letting you in? Specifically, what kind of things they make you fill out to be able to make the decision?

Current thoughts: Making the user fill out display name and bio during sign up (when in admission-based registrations mode)

@Gargron one use case I could think of, is one university has an instance where only employees or students are allowed. I think the fields used to validate access should be defined by the admin, but I don't know if it makes sense to have an instance with access validation and be able to talk with other instances in the fediverse.


@estebanz01 It's already possible to solve this with e-mail domain whitelists, or single-sign-on integration
