why can't we answer a question from a group we don't belong to when we know we can say something to help. i am in my 50's but i'm to old to join the 30 mom group but could help a mom there?

you see questions everyday on cm and would like to help out somebody, but why do we have to join the group to answer/ help out one person? can't we have like a 5 question min. before having to join?

  • Maybe you can send a personal message to that person instead? I'm sure theyd appreciate your help! :)

  • Exactly what Kimberly said. I see that stuff and just pm them. I do the same for really old questions that I find, if I think they may not check back.

  • I just join the group to answer; most have an automatic boot if you don't post often enough.

  • Yeah, do a "personal message", and why not JOIN? Who cares, this Web site is to help people out!

  • It all depends on the group and their privacy settings. Some groups allow you to and some don't. =)
