If you have friends that are interested in joining, you can send them an invite link directly so that they can sign up without having to fill in the form on the front page.
This is handy since the review system we have in place to combat spam means accounts can take a few hours before they are approved.
You can generate invites under the 'Invite People' tab in the preferences area.
