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 SO MUCH ..
Do we have to do anything?
No. You don't have to do anything.
Next step would be to enable a check box to each name so that we can select individuals all select all and delete as we choose. Similar to the way we are able to choose what to do with our emails. Clicking on each "Withdraw request" can be tedious, especially if you've got tons of pending requests.
I had twelve here the other day, and while that's not as many as a hundred, it would have been better had I a way to delete multiples at a time.
OMG this is awesome since I am on sooooooooooo many Ning sites.
I need to know who is my friend and who isn't. So I can ask them. I don't think it is very wise to go memberpage by memberpage looking for frienship. Why doesn't exist the possibility (creator only)to be automaticly a friend of the creator at the signing in ?
For the same reason you aren't friends with everybody when you join Facebook, Myspace or any other social network. People aren't interested in being linked with strangers, who may turn out to be the kind of people they don't want to be associated with. Automatic friendship would also allow spammers to hit the email boxes of your members since only friends can send private messages. Additionally, no one wants to be forced to befriend strangers. We like to have the freedom to make our own choices, not have them dictated to us.
Hey, Alejandra. We are actually considering an auto-friend feature for Network Creators.
Really? You mean that anyone who joins Creators would automatically be my friend? Wouldn't that leave us with the task of removing hundreds of people from our friends list? That would be a nightmare.
