It would be nice to have a feature where registrations are available only to users invited to register.

A feature where you enter their email address and the message board sends them out a unique number that relates to that users email address giving them the ability to register with in a set time limit by the board administrator.

This feature would be set aside as a separate registration process and be active if the standard open registration process is turned off but still with the ability to turn on or off this function independently of the standard user registration process.

I think this would be a great feature.

Wow, I could have used that feature as my forums are restricted and require approval. I added an extra field in the registration form labeled "Codeword." Anyone I invited was given a codeword that I change from time to time. The idea was to give me a reminder and confirmation that I invited that person. Your suggestion takes it one step further and automates the process... I would still want to review these people but such a feature would be useful to some people I am sure!

I think it is a different flavor in the fact that you could pre-register new members. Then they would go into the registration queue. But I don't have a need for it either.

A "By invitation only" feature is definitely needed. I could definitely use it right now.
