When creating a new community, the community owner will be asked to select one of two membership options:
- Allow any registered user of archive.storycorps.org to join, or
- Limit members to those who have been approved by owners or moderators.
The community owner will also be asked to select one of two interview submission options:
- Allow any community member to submit an interview, or
- Limit interview submissions to those approved by owners or moderators.
Gatekeeping rules about membership and submissions give the community owner more control over the online presence of the community. Please note that this option will also require more administration.
You can edit or update this membership information at any time. We highly recommend that community owners draft their custom questions immediately so they can be included in their invitation to people to join the community.
