Does anyone know of any prior art for when you want to sign up for a website, but they review your account manually before letting you in? Specifically, what kind of things they make you fill out to be able to make the decision?

Current thoughts: Making the user fill out display name and bio during sign up (when in admission-based registrations mode)

@Gargron Back in the day, BBSs asked you to send a message to the SysOp/admin. Usually you would put a reason why you want to join the BBS. Not unlike FB groups where they might ask you a question or 2 to confirm you are at least paying attention to what you're signing up for and/or you are not a bot.
