Why can't I start a new group?

I have 2 groups that are not active and would like to close them or leave them. I would also like to start a new one and the group tab doesn't give me that option.

  • It's easy to start a group.

    Click the 'Groups' tab.
    Scroll down the page and click the 'Create a Group' button located on the right side.
    Choose the category that best describes your group: Personal, Common Ground, or Local.
    Enter your group name.
    Upload your group's picture (optional).
    Describe your group in the Short and Long Description boxes.
    Add tags (keywords) for your group.
    Enter a URL for your group's homepage.
    If you believe that your group should be classified as adult content only, check the box beside 'This group may contain adult content that would not be suitable for moms under 18.'
    Click 'Next'.
    The next page will allow you to edit your group settings.
    Once you are done choosing your privacy settings, click 'Continue'.

    Congratulations! You have created your own group.

    my groups / active groups / find groups / chats / my replies

  • Hi njfitmama,

    Let us know the name of the groups you wish to close by using the 'Contact Us' link at the bottom of any page and we will deactivate them for you.

    Workenmom is correct, try clicking the word 'Groups' instead of the arrow next to it. The orange 'Create a Group' button should be located on the right side of the page, about half way down.
