Network Creators are generally a friendly bunch, but in the past they’ve been limited in the number of outstanding, pending friend requests they can have at one time. Traditionally, that limit has been set at 100 pending friend requests.
Extra-friendly Network Creators who have wanted to invite more people on their networks to be their friend have had to periodically — manually — clear out these pending requests. To make this process more convenient and to encourage Network Creators to be extra-friendly, we’ve increased this limit from 100 pending friend requests to an unlimited number of friend requests. We’re extending this to Admins and member moderators as well.
This is a simple change that should continue to limit spammy activity, while simultaneously getting out of the way of Network Creators and Admins who want to increase their own bonds with their members.
Thank you :-)
Could you also amend the resend invitations to ONLY resend invitations to those who haven't become members yet??
If all previous requests are shown, your point is very valid. But I would think this needs clarifying.
Bout damn time! Now, how bout unlimited invites for NC's??
Can we revisit having the control set by network creators to do away with the whole "Friend" thing altogether if we chose to do so on our own networks? I am still getting many complaints from our guys who think the whole friend thing is silly. Thanks
why does a network creator need to friend request anyone. We have the ability to broadcast email and don't need to be friends unlike normal members. Just askin.
Great question, Andrew. Some NCs feel very strongly that they need this feature. It's not something I would personally want, but we are hoping to satisfy people who do want it. This would be optional.
Eric, can we make it optional to even have the "Friend" feature at all on our site? Seems to me that i have seen way more requests in the last year to do away with the "Friend" thing altogether if a creator wishes to do so on their network.
This change is about relaxing a previous restriction, but we've thought about what you suggest. We haven't done it yet. Could be awhile before we tackle that, if we do.
