 Hi @dcavins

 Thanks for starting working on this. Here are my first thoughts.

 I would suggest to first list :
 - how joining a site of a network is happening today in WordPress (The
 network admin can add network members to a site, I don't remember about
 site admins, new members can create their own site during signup)
 - what are the available types of site: public, hidden from search results
 (if i remember well)

 > Create a public site - Allow anyone to sign up and also allow
 invitations to be sent by network members.
 I'm unsure it's possible to sign up for a blog that isn't the root one
 today. When you say ''network members'' do you mean the ones that have a
 role on the sub site (eg: read at the very least) or any member ?

 About `private site` it doesn't really exist today, we have sites that are
 not indexed by search engines, but you don't need to be a member of a site
 to view its content. Are you suggesting to extend WordPress using the
 blogs component for instance ?

 NB: I remember Signups used to create members with no roles on any site,
 and I think BuddyPress now forces a signed up member to have a role on the
 root blog.

 I also think the BP Invitations API could be used to improve the way
 members are added to a site by Network admin or regular admins for non
 MultiSites config. I have the GDPR in mind. Somehow today when an admin is
 adding a new user to his site there are no proofs the added user gave
 their consent...
