I tried to join the 'Photojournalism Group' must be THREE MONTHS ago and I am still waiting for Acceptance and I cannot post anything about waiting in the Group as it will now let me ! How LONG do you have to wait 'Acceptance' -- is it an 'Elite' ? I am only a common Old Bugger who has been doing PhotoJournalism for over 40 years -- maybe you need to be in the 20's with the latest Canon all-Singing-all Dancing 5000 worth of gear to join !

I thought you got acceptance into a group as soon as you posted a comment in the group's thread.

BUT it will NOT let me POST as I am NOT an 'Accepted Member' !!! There is a Grey thing in the Group saying 'Pending Acceptance' which has been there for three months now !

Sorry Pete. Looks like this group was set up by Kombiz who set it to member only and then hasn't been back to keep an eye on it or encourage its growth...one reason why a group may fail. I've made you active, but you're the only one in there so it may be quite unless you want to take control and encourage others to join. Groups need leaders

When it says a group is by invitation only it is not clear by whom the invitation can be offered, is it the group creator only?

Just wondering the difference really between this and the approval process.

How many people have complained that they have tried to join a group and not been allowed I wonder? Grin
