I'm currently setting up a layout for a website that's going to be a sort of "bracket" website, where users can sign up and they can be approved/denied by an administrator. I'm currently at a roadblock in my design process, because I can't figure out an appropriate way to handle mass user authentication.
For example, there will be bracket that any person who has registered on the website will be able to sign up for. When they sign up, they're put into a "waiting pool", where they're sorted by a system that puts them into four or five different skill groups (as to not match the best players against the worst). After everything is sorted, the people in the pool need to be "approved" for the tournament, which is where I'm having trouble.
If I have 100 people in this pool, what would be the most efficient way to display them for approval (this would only be done by an administrator on the back-end of the website)? I was thinking of listing them and having check boxes next to each person's username, but it seems like that would be tedious and time consuming. Is there any other way to handle this issue?
