Four step sign up process too much for general public

Convincing people to start trapping at home is already challenging. The current TrapNZ sign up process is creating a huge barrier for people. Currently they need to:
Register---- Verify ---- Join a project — Add trap.

As an administrator I already have done a huge amount to work to streamline this including adding and assigning hundreds of traps. Surely this could be simpler maybe the join the project and auto add trap when the member registers?
