Our group on Flickr currently asks individuals to request membership to the group. Do you think this is reasonable, or do you think this is an unnecessary step?
Pros for Requests
- This allows us to keep spammers out
- In the past, we had problems with spammers joining and posting irrelevant/lewd content
Cons for Requests
- Requests add another layer to getting involved
- This may discourage involvement
