  • Why do groups only hold chats when they want? If its a group with 500 members why can't it be open chat all the time? I joined what I was interested in but they never have chats going so whats the point?

  • I have joined groups only out of curiosity...some groups required for you to joined otherwise you can't look into it. Once I joined the group I didn't think it merited my attention.

  • There is a nifty feature that tells the last visit date and I have noticed quite a few members who have never logged into my groups. So I guess this just means the person got busy and forgot about us?

  • In my groups I have held 24 hour chats and close to it and only had 2 or 3 show up all day! You belong to the wrong group-join us at

  • I just deleted all but 4 of my groups... Because I haven't been active in any of them.

    At the time I joined, it was because my friends were hosting them and I got invited... it sounded like something I would be interested in, and in some cases, I was very active from the beginning.
    But I've turned into more of a "journal person" than a "group person"... so I phased out.

    I stuck around in the groups because I was afraid I'd hurt my friends' feelings if I left... but i realized it was MORE inconsiderate to belong to a group that I never visited. So I went ahead and deleted just about all of them.
