    Is there a way to restrict Groups creaton, or to require adminstrator approval before a group is made public?

    I’ve had scores of garbage groups created in a relatvely short period of time.

    Further, attempts to bulk delete the junk groups in Admin>Groups failed

    WordPress v3.5.2
    BuddyPress v1.7.2

    Thanks,

    Go to Settings > BuddyPress > Settings – Groups and remove ability of all users to create groups. Then, there’s also the BuddyPress Restrict Group Creation plugin which extends the capabilities but I’m not sure if it’s still compatible with current BP 1.7.2

    Thanks so much! My only choice in deleting all those groups was to eliminate them as you said above, but now I’ll look for the plugin…

    Well, apparently its not compatible. I tried to install it, but not all the settings were available to me!
