Describe the missing feature that would help you make the most of Meetup

Replace the option to close group off to new applications to join

Why have you removed the option to close my groups off to new applications?

I don't want people we haven't invited to join our group being able to apply to join - they won't be accepted.

But now, as organiser, you've made it that I'll have to actually decline each application.

Why did you do this?

        Yes, organizers should be given the ability to close the group off to new members when we reach max capacity! This is a problem for our group right now. I am considering leaving meetup for this reason. They are filling out these questions and now I need to decline them - it is a waste of time for organizers and meetup members!

        I totally agree with this poster and it's driving me insane. This is such a waste of time to new applicants. They are filling out these questions and now I need to decline them. This is totally wrong. I don't want people to think that I declined them because we don't like them. We actually may, but I just don't have the spot for them. Please bring this option back!! Pretty Please!!
