How do you start a Social group? I can see that one group has been created, but I don't see a way to start a group.

tomm, are you going to start one for the Fab Fifties and Sizz Sixties? To answer your question, I do not have a clue. :D

When I go into "Social Groups" I see two items:

"You are a member of the following Groups" and then "Available Groups". At the bottom of Available Groups I have a link for "Create New Group".

It might just be because I'm an Admin, though. :ponder:

If you don't have that link, go ahead and let me know which groups you want to create and I'll make it for you.

Correct. You're an Admin, so you're automatically superior. :lol:

Can you make a College-Age group? And a SoCal group? If groups do what I think they might, then we could organize SoCal meets though the group.

Go to the social groups page (from your User CP sidebar or this link (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/group.php)), then find a group to join.

I'm also seeing the link for creating new groups, but that could well be because I'm a mod.

I'm not sure on the privacy restrictions on the groups, though. For now, it's safest to continue using the meets board for that.

I can't seem to be able to join any groups. Perhaps the settings are such that only mods/admins can join a group?

Good to know. Still, I think it might be useful to have a compendium of local LHCers.

ps. I love this multiquote funtion!!!

But the only people I see belonging to groups are mods/admins. :ponder:

Nope, not for me. And I NEED to be a member of the TMI group-- my journal has gotten ridiculously TMI since LHC went down. It's where I belong. :D

I can take a screenshot and post it if it would help, but I've looked all over the group page, and though it says it's public, there is no link to join, that I can see. I specifically checked where you said-- I assume it's supposed to be above the "view all members" link?

Yep. I think the settings are such that only mods and admins can join. Hey, Dianyla...your first admin duty is to open the groups so all can join! :lol: (Or course, being LHC, y'all will probably put a post/day count. I think I pass the 100 posts/60 days. :wink:)

OK, I've at least fixed it so that you guys can join existing Social Groups. We'll have to figure out how we'll be creating new groups going forward.

In the meantime, just let a mod or admin know what you'd like created.

I have no idea if this is technically possible, but may I make two suggestions that I would find really helpful to have for the social groups:

In the top section on the social groups site, the one that lists all the groups you are a member of, would it be feasible to incorporate those little blue, red or yellow dots, like for the thread lists in the other parts of the forum, that indicate whether there are new posts?

Along similar lines, it would be really great if there was a function to flag the "last read" post, or get straight to this point - in groups, like TMI, that have quite a lot of posts in a relatively short time, I always spend quite some time trying to find where I last left off if I want to catch up on the conversation.

Thanks

It means you are in charge of the group's cheese supply. Use the power wisely. ;)


:D Can I be, too, in the pen-pals? Please? With chocolate fudge on top?
I have put it on Dianyla's to-do list. :)

I didn't read all 24 pages of replies to this thread.... but it sounds like one needs 1000 posts to create a social group?

Good, good... because I have one I want to create... which is why I was poking around on this thread to get an answer :) Thanks for the answer.

whew... I made it to 1,000 posts! Unfortunately, I still do not see an option for creating a social group. Can anyone help me figure it out? Or perhaps I need to wait a couple days until the site registers that I've reached 1,000 posts.

Also, on a side note, wondering what other perks I can take advantage of now that I'm at 1,000 posts!

The perks come with 1,000 posts AND one year's membership (http://forums.longhaircommunity.com/showthread.php?t=1658). So I'm afraid you have quite a wait ahead of you.

Egads! The way it's written I thought it meant 1,000 posts OR one year of membership. I have to have both to start a social group?

And, SISSY, you've got the postcount now...oh shoot, it's awhile til the time-frame is met. Dang! Write someone who's a guru and just ask. People here are awfully nice about stuff like that.

Someone who is a guru? Is a guru just someone here over a year with more than 1,000 posts?

If anyone is willing to start it for me... I would like a group for "Health Management Resources, HMR" which is a diet program I am on (and have lost 25lbs on in one month). It is similar to Nutrisystem. I am not sure if anyone else is doing the program here but I would love to find out. The program involves eating a meal replacements and going to weekly meetings. I am doing pretty well on it so far.

Thanks,
Sissy

also... I just went to the social groups to search NutriSystem thinking I could just join that group as I'm sure the programs are similar but it appears there is no NutriSystem group either. If someone starts the HMR group they could make it HMR and NutriSystem as I think the two programs might be similar.

However, if there is no interest in either of these groups then perhaps it's not worth starting it. I'm not sure if anyone else here is doing either of these programs. I was just looking for a way to get some extra support and chat about the program.
