our approval queue is big!

At the time of typing, I (as a member of staff) can see that there are 588 potential members (or spammers) in our approval queue. And have no idea what to do about them. :/

/sarcasm ON
The lazy way of "solving" this problem is to reject all of them and pretend they do not exist. ... We might as well dig our heads in to the sand and pretend the world is perfect.
/sarcasm OFF

As far as I know, the only way to approve anyone is for one of staff to select an action (approve/reject/reject-with-reason) on the potential member and click a save button.

I wish there were a better approach. This post is part-rant and part-plea-for-help. Our existing approach is "do nothing" .

That's not a bad idea, actually. Give some members the power to add new members, with the understanding that they must also be responsible for removing them if they turn out to be spammers. For other offenses, let the Senior Admins handle them on a case by case basis.

If the Admins do create a new "sub-mod" I'd volunteer to help.
