To create a group, go to the Groups tab and click the link at the top right of the page to "Add a group." Next, fill in information about yourgroup. Give your group a name and be sure to upload a group image that's roughly square in size. Fill out a description for your group, which members will see when looking for groups to join. If your group has another website, or a location, you can add it here! In the right side of the page, choose which features your group will have. You can add a comment wall, discussion forum, text box, and RSS reader to your group.
Don't forget to choose the privacy settings for your group! You can allow anyone to join the group, or moderate membership. If you choose tomoderate membership, new members will have to apply to join and you'll be able to review their request before they can join. You can allow members to invite other people to join and allow people to request membership if you'd like. If you turn off both of these options, the group will be invite-only - and you'll be the only one who can send invites to join the group.Once you create your group, the privacy cannot be changed, so pick carefully!
Note: The group creator controls whether a member can send a broadcast message to the entire group. If this feature is turned on, you can send a message to the entire group by going to the group's page and clicking "Send Message to Group." Enjoy! And thanks again for making Comedy Whirled a better place than anyplace. -Gozer
