How to have super admin approve new blog sites

    I have a multisite network setup. With this when users register to the buddy press registration page making checkmark to have their own site created automatically. While this is nice I don’t want every person who registers to necessarily have the own blog site. I would like to be able to have people to do this checkmark and then have me (this super admin) or even other administrators have to approve the blog site requests first. What I would like is to be able to put in formal elements in the registration page that have users that various information to help me decide if I want them to have a blog. Then on the screen the administrator can go and choose to accept blog site creation requests or deny the request. And in each case send the appropriate e-mail out. And of the same time automatically have and the user account be created without the blog ahead of time no matter what. It’s fine if the blog gets created right away as long as when I say I don’t approve it gets deleted. But best should be if the blog sites didn’t get created until after I approve.
    Is there a plug in around or how I do this

    This plug in doesn’t seem to be working. It looks like it was designed for the mu plug in. WordPress now includes MU in their latest version. Maybe that’s why it doesn’t work. It doesn’t work with buddy press anyway. When people go to be verified from an e-mailed link it goes to a login instead. And then that user isn’t a user at all. Any other ideas

    mu-plugins folder is for special plugins used sitewide — in WP multisite (nee WP Multi-User). You need to create a folder named “mu-plugins” in your server – wp-content/mu-plugins and upload the plugin there. And yes, it works in current WP/BP versions.
