"create a new Blog" / this option should not be within Sign-up-process

the option to "create a new Blog" for the user should not be included within the Sign-up-process.

It would be better to include this within the Tab named "Blogs".
there you put a button for "Create a Blog".

Same as you have within the Groups-Tab the button which says "Create a Group".

The signup page in BP 1.1+ is now themeable, so we can add/disable such options in the theme (although, you have to know code to disable it).

Perhaps an admin option in the BP admin menu can be added for WYSIWYG users?

This is more a case of BuddyPress mimicking existing WordPress behavior. You can turn this off as a site administrator if you so choose.

Just adding a note that this is definitely plugin territory, and as luck woudl have, a plugin exist. You can force people to sign up as a user first (and only as a user) and then allow them to create blogs.

@Ray, , @JJJ,

I am not talking about "enabling" or "disabling" Blogs.

I am just talking about putting the fields for "Create a Blog" into a different location than having this at the "Sign-Up-page".

Having too many fields within the "Sign-Up-page" is also confusing for the user.
Why not put these fields into a separate page ?
