    @sharmavishal; @bp-help
    thank you for your reply.

    I installed BuddyPress Registration Options (latest stable release), and left it as the only Registration plugins.

    Apparently everything is working fine: I get an email for every new user request, and I can veto the application if necessary.

    I’d like to thank everybody for the help; I’ll post a follow-up in a few weeks.

    thank you both for your reply

    I didn’t mean to suggest that BP Registration Options wasn’t working, I was just speculating about development being abandoned in the future. I understand that a plugin does NOT necessarily need to be updated if it keeps working, but the latest update date of a given plugin sometimes indicates its dereliction; that does not appear to be the case here.

    Is it safe to try BP Registration Options 4.2.0 Alpha (link posted by sharmavishal)? [read: would you suggest it to someone unable to devote too much time to dealing with-possible-bugs in an alpha version?]

    @OC2PS
    there is indeed a new option in the Users panel: “Authorize” below each user’s details, but I wonder how to make my WP/BP installation keep new users on hold until approved. At the moment, when a new user (or more frequently a new bot) passes the gauntlet, it is enabled by default. Might that problem be caused by WangGuard?

    thank you for your suggestion. I installed the plugin, however it has not been updated in the last 8 months, and that’s the reason I am asking for a BuddyPress feature. Personally, I’d rather use the fewest possible plugins and rely on integrated functions.

    I’m having problems with slow-updating plugins on a different blog, and WP’s auto-update feature is not helping.

    Back to the topic, I’ll give the plugin a chance, but I’m afraid that sooner or later it might be deprecated, and I’d be back at square one

    At least I’d like to be able to put new registrations on hold pending admin approval.

    As it is now, I have to delete 5 or 6 users a day, and the double humanity check is probably scaring off genuine users (not that I’ve got many of those…).

    at the moment I have 2 “humanity check” plugins: SKT Nurcaptcha and Buddypress Security Check, plus WangGuard.
