In Response to Re: Joining a group protocol..:
Thank You for atleast shedding some light on this subject...just knowing that if some made their profiles public might help them when selecting a private group & will help those who have tried to join and were rejected or ignored..this post is like an octoput it has tenacles that will reach those who have an interest. in joining a particular group.

To my knowledge, there isn't any basic guidance or guidelines, for people who create groups & become their administrators. No suggestion about "requirements" being put in the group description, or that Administrators provide feedback to people who aren't accepted. AARP just encourages people to start groups, without even suggesting they do a couple of searches to make sure they're not duplicating existing groups. They also encourage people to sign up for Online Community at AARP conferences .. but focus on quantity more than quality of profiles created. You could always tell when there was a big AARP conference, because the next week there would be a bunch of requests to join groups .. no photos, no info, no nothing. How helpful is that?!
When I still had a large private group, I put "Administrator: Astraea" at the beginning of the description, so people knew.
