    Groups

    Since joining Scooploop yesterday, I’ve joined a few groups but I notice that there are some that are classed as limited. Can anyone advise what that means please?
    Thank you.
    • @Sy... Hello. It means you have to be accepted by the moderator.

    • It means that you ask to join and the moderator of the group has to approve and accept you.

    • @Sy... It means that you have to apply to join and the moderator will either accept you or reject you..

    • It means they are a private group and you need to be approved by the moderator to join them.

    • There's a lot of slow computers around!

    • Thank you all for the explanation.

    • Am I wrong in saying that application to join ALL groups, Open or otherwise need moderator approval ..

    • @Ry... I’m confused. I was accepted in the groups I joined without any moderator input.

    • @Sy...

      Your application shows up on the moderators Pending, all he does is click yes and you are in...

    • @Ry... Ah. I see. Thank you.

    • @Sy... In an open group, a moderator has the choice to allow automatic membership.

    • @Sy... What group was that ?

    • @Sy...

      That's the way the cookie crumbles on here Sylvie - just give that particular group the big e..

    • @Bo... It’s two groups now. The second one has just cast aspersions on my authenticity.

    • @Sy... it's those sort of things that put people off and they don't comment or leave altogether.

    • @Sy...

      Sylvia - there is a mass paranoia about aliases on here - give all private and limited groups..

    • @Bo... The groups were fun for all and MSL

    • @Sy... thanks for the info.

    • @Sy...

      I got a big NO from MSL and it never affected my sleep.

    • How about starting your own group and only letting in those that YOU want ? sounds like a plan.

    • @ar... but there are other groups that aren't like that, don't be put off the whole site.

    • @ar... address verification has been discussed before, with no outcome.

    • @Pe... because I don't want you stalking me. 🤣

    • @So... well then, bit futile complaining about returning trouble makers

    • @So... Perish the thought at that possibility😉

    • Address verification is required by Next Door, which is personal intrusion that many users are uncom..

    • @Pe... I'm a member of Nextdoor, if you go on there you will see my real name and address😉😄

    • @So... I've only tried to reply to the comments! I've used social media before!!
