A site that I used to run that's been closed for months continues to get a steady stream of applications to join from random accounts, probably spammers. I know I can't close the site itself, but is there any way to prevent applications? I've set it private, removed every widget that could even suggest an application, added instructions telling people not to bother to apply (not that bots are reading that), but still there's a steady stream of bogus applications. It seems like there must be a way to make a site "invite only" or something, but I can't find one.
If you go to the Site Admin > Recruiting page, can you not simply disable the application from there?
I'm guessing it must either be linked from somewhere, or cached. I could find it just by working out what the url is for an application, from my own site, and using the same on yours (obviously with different guild name)
