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 If ya do go down this path, you could shadowban new accounts by default until an admin approves' them. That way people can still get started using masto, and any of their friends can find & interact with them straight away.
