I've gone through the Master Due Date list, the gender guessing list, and have tried to grab names I recognize elsewhere, and invited all these people. I've also accepted anyone who has tried to join. I'm not excluding anyone at this stage (including one post people or newer people to the DDC), because anyone who proves themselves to be problem causing can be banned later. I'd rather assume all our mommies are helpful contributors :)

16

I would love to hear the groups opinion on acceptance policies in the future though.

Moss, I sent an invite to you.

 

Maybe we should start a new thread that specifically explains that we've initiated the (inevitable) move to the social club, here's the link, everyone due in April is welcome (ever MDC newbies and lurkers). There is NO desire to exclude anyone from the DDC, just a wish to make it harder to troll?

I'd like to be invited. How can I tell if I already am?

Go to the link above, and there should be "request pending" or "join this group". If the former, one of the leaders will approve. If the latter, click the join button and they'll approve you shortly I imagine. 

 

Unfortunately I didn't get a notification that I had been "accepted", so you'll have to check back in a couple days.

smile.gif I'm checking the "pending members" every few hours, so if anyone tries to join they will be accepted as quickly as possible...I'm sure between dealic and I there will be no need to wait more than 3 hours (and that's the worst case because of classes this morning)

Wow you have done a lot while I sleep. Any threads you want me to go through and try to invite people from, zuzusplace?

I'm just trying to start with those thread that are largest and tend to be on-going...they seem most likely to have more people. I think the only problem is there is no where I can see that lists who has been invited. Since I've already invited 75+ people (and have a list on my desk), it may get complicated to have people accidentally receive double invites.

Yes that was my thought. I was hoping it would indicate "pending invite" somewhere for me to see. Otherwise it may end up being twice as much work for us, and almost no gain, if I just duplicate what you have already done.

I didn't want to step in since you guys are heading the charge, but now that you've got a critical mass of invites out, maybe a new thread to announce this process would be helpful? Then you can suggest that everyone who hasn't received an invite should click the "join this group" button?

 

Once we do have a critical mass, I'll request a lock of the gender thread and maybe a big sticky noting that we're moving?

We might even have a mod sticky it for us.  We've had more late-adds here than I would have thought, but I would like other April moms to be able to find us if they come looking.

Wow, I have missed a lot.  I saw that thread today when I logged on and just skimmed it.  Saw this one and just skimmed it, too. 

 

Let me know when/where to move and I'll be there!  I'm sorry all this has happened, how rediculous!

I requested to join. I don't post that much bc I'm mainly on my phone and it's really slow when trying to post. If there is a facebook group, I'd be interested in joining that too bc I can post much easier there from my phone.

If there is a face book group, I am also into it.  I'm a pretty big facebooker.
