Folks, do you have pending 'Followers' left hanging...!?
Site QUESTIONS ? How do I...?
Brian, it seems i have been mistaken about what that checkbox actually does.
I just now clicked on the "?" help button to the right of it, and that explains clearly what the option does:
If "Approve Followers" is checked, anyone following your profile will need to be approved by you before becoming a follower of your profile.
D'oh!! I have erroneously assumed that the checkbox meant to automatically approve your followers, ...but what it really means is that when checked, you are saying you want to have to approve any followers. The opposite!
I can see that the wording is confusing. So I'm going to change that wording to better explain what the checkbox does without having to click on the help button for the explanation.
I will also fix this thread where I mistakenly explained it the wrong way as well.
Thank you for bringing this up Brian, because I'm sure I wasn't the only one who misinterpreted the wording on that profile checkbox!
update: I have changed the wording on that profile checkbox to read: "Keep Followers Pending Until My Approval". I think that's way clearer in meaning.
