Is it possible to moderate account creation?

I'm looking at having a customer-only community whereby I (or the team) would have to accept or decline users who attempt to join. Is this possible already?

Custom url for each search

Using Spectrum's search is a little frustrating. There is no search results page with a specific url. For example, when I visit a thread, then want to go back to the search results page, I cannot use the browser's back button to get there, I have to search again. Do you not鈥

Link social auth accounts

Would be really nice if I could link my Gmail and Github logins to the same account so I didn't have to login to various accounts to get notifications.

Admin should be able to edit users' posts

Display thread conversations as a pane in the main view

I really like Spectrum. However, I find it a bit cumbersome to click on each topic reply and then go back to list of topics and repeat to reply to another thread. I find three panel layouts on emails (with side by side view of topic and thread) quite useful for quickly replying鈥

Inspect View

1) It would be a helpful feature, if the user could toggle Sketch's layout and grid guides in inspect mode. This feature is available in InVision Inspect as an example. 2) It would be nice, if the user could toggle the visibility of single layers and groups in the layer's pane.鈥

Linux App? :)

Most likely has been asked before but would be great to have a Linux desktop client. I co-run a few communities on Slack and can't wait to get off it.
