#6641: How to Modify/Change a Buddypress/Wordpress Account Activation Process

 I'm developing a custom BuddyPress/WordPress Plugin. Here's how a user
 would normally register.

     (1) A user registers as usual on registration page
     (2) His/Her account is deactivated till he/she clicks on activation
 link in his/her email
     (3) He/She is sent an activation link through the email he/she
 registered with
     (4) He/She activates his account by clicking on the link

 I'd like to modify step 4 above so that even if the user clicks on the
 activation link, his/her account remains deactivated till he/she fills
 another form on the site for example, a custom survey form. Once this form
 is filled successfuly, the user can now be activated.

 I'll be programming the custom form myself so that it works the way I want
 it to, with wordpress/Buddypress actions/filters.

 So my question is: How can you modify the WordPress/Buddypress activation
 Process so that the account remains deactivated till the user fill my
 custom form?

 Here's the main action that I intend to use and it fires as soon as the
 user clicks the buddypress account activation link in their email:


 I'll appreciate if someone can point in the right direction on modifying
 the Buddypress/Wordpress activation process.

 Please help. This is where I'm stuck.
