Understanding Groups

We have a new feature called "Groups" here on the Merry Forums. It is designed to allow our members to form into special interest families with their own membership and their own forums.

Check it out: Today I set up a group called "I Believe in Santa". Within that group I can post pictures and it automatically sets up our own group forum. This is a "public group", meaning anyone can join.

Think about what this means:

Say, for example, you want to get together with other Christmas light enthusiasts here on the forums. Create a group and then invite your fellow light nuts to join it. You'll then be set up to do your own thing -- stash your own photos, moderate your own forum, the works.

Now, in order for this to work there are a few guidelines:

1. All our regular forum rules apply. So don't go trying to form groups that won't fit within our family-friendly environment.
2. You can have as little as 1 member in a group. But you need at least 5 members in your group before your ability to create your own forum area is given to you.
3. When you've formed a group be sure to stop by this forum to announce your group and invite interested parties to join.

Come give this a try!

For some reason I can't join any groups...

Nevermind. I fixed the problem myself.

Don't give up...here's your problem at the moment...you need to have 25 posts to join groups...so keep posting and you will get to 25 in no time and be able to hop into the groups you want to join!!! It's also the same for chat if you are interested in joining any of our Themed chats...so post away and we will be seeing you in groups and chat soon!!!
