Some questions you might help me with  
1.Im wanting to friend lock my journal but don't know how to,can you help please?

2.Im wanting to lock my community and make it so I can choose if I would like someone to join it or not (I don't want minors in there and I should have done it this way at the start)can you help with that too please?

I did a full check in my community tonight and thankfully there are no minors but I was just lucky,and thats why I think its best to have them both locked,just to be safe,I want to check properly that no one can come into my journal/community unless I say yes (if I don't know who they are) ,and this won't affect any of my flist who are mutal friends (I think).

Will someone advise me please?

Again,its just to be safe

Yvonne, when you are on your profile page. in the sidebar or up at the top, there will be pulldown boxes or links on the side.

Go to communities, manage your communities. click that then go to settings. Then under membership click moderated membership. That way you will get a notification when anyone wants to join. Then you can decide if you can let that person join or not.

I changed it to..."Membership:Moderated
Posting Access: All Members, Moderated,is that right?
I want only members to post thier fics and to know who else joins after that to be sure no minors do.

Thanks for your help.

Yes, this way you will get a email from LJ when anyone request to join the community. It will ask you if you want to approve or reject that request. My Graphic community is set that way so I can check ages before allowing that person to join.
