Leader's Permission Required SHOULD MEAN LEADER'S PERMISSION REQUIRED
It's hard enough dealing with the instructors and other participants that can not or will not read and understand the posting of an activity, course, field trip, ANYTHING let alone dealing with someone that registers without getting permission to do so. What is the point of having a check box or radio button if there is no functionality behind it?
Thank you for your feedback regarding the leader’s permission process, and we’re sorry for the frustration you have experienced. Leader’s Permission can be a critical tool for ensuring a successful trip, but good communication is key to avoiding frustration. We are unable to make technology improvements to the functionality of Leader’s Feedback at this time, but thanks to your feedback we have updated our Leader’s Permission Required blog and are highlighting your suggestion as a best practice for leaders. https://www.mountaineers.org/blog/what-is-leaders-permission

Can we simply remove the ability to sign up for a trip that is leader's permission only and require the leader to add people?
When I've seen this happen, there's no communication at all from the participant, so it's hard to understand the context at all.
