I just did some spring cleaning in the members section of this blog. There were dozens and dozens of food bloggers who had asked to be pupils but who had never ever completed the signup by accepting the invitation. Some of them dated back a year and a half. So I removed them all and wrote to each individual to tell them what I had done. Everybody is welcome to reapply for membership, of course. I think some people thought they were memebers because a link to their blog appeared in the pupil's blogroll, but the truth is I would make the link before double checking they had finished the signup process and I want to try and stop this from happening going forward. So, in addition to removing the links of the pupils who never finalized their sign-up there will be a new two-week window going forward for new pupils to accept the invitiation. Only after that two weeks will the new pupils be added to the blog roll. Hope that all makes sense.
"This invitation is only guaranteed valid for two weeks from now. If you do not accept this invitation to join the school within that time period, the invite could be removed and your blog will either not be added to the blog roll,or it runs the risk of being removed if it has already been added."
This is all fairly time consuming, so if anyone has any better ideas of how to handle this, please don't hesitate to suggest alternative methodology.
