What is the criteria needed to create a Group?

"See a Need, Fill a Need, Start a Group": Have a new idea for a group? Can't find a group that speaks to you? Want to start a group to promote your business, event, or organization? Then just do it already. Start a new group.

For more information on running your own group, read our Group Leader Guidelines.

Why did my group get removed?

Examples of not a group include but are not limited to:

  • Groups created as a personal ad for one person (e.g. to find someone to hook up with)
  • Groups created to spot other members
  • Groups created to advertise a subscription or sales (e.g. OnlyFans, Snapchat, etc.)
  • Groups created to advertise a service (e.g: I give the best massages in town!)
