The community platform I look after allows anyone to create a profile and join or request to join communities, the same as most community platforms
95% of the users join due to an invitation from a community admin of one of the many communities.
But we also allow members of the platform to create individual blogs.
Our potential issues is, that we normally get 2 or 3 new members a week that will create a half dozen or so blogs which will feel are not relevant to our overall community. They are normally blogs where they get paid for the number of links and click through’s.
We delete the blogs and the accounts but we get the same people coming back using slightly different email accounts.
It’s not too much of any issue at the moment but as we grow it may become very time consuming.
Has anyone had a similar issue and how did you deal with it?
One thought I had, that I’m sure I have seen somewhere else is that that you are unable to add content in some areas for a set time. For example, you are not allowed to post a blog until 24 hours after becoming a member. Has anyone tried something like that before or could suggest some different approaches.
