How does one become a Member of a (Social) Group?

Hello,
I can't seem to find the answer to my question above anywhere around the forum, nor figure it out for myself . I've figured out how to subscribe to a group, but that doesn't seem to make me a member of it; what's the difference? Is it another one of those "privileges" that's not open to "Newbies"? Please advise!

Re: How does one become a Member of a (Social) Group?

Which social group? Some may be closed, invitation only groups which could explain this.

To be honest I don't think much happens with these groups anyway. The last time the forum was upgraded they were a "new toy", but I don't think they are that active these days. I may be wrong though.

The "Let's All Slag Off a Mod" group is still very popular.

Anyway. To answer the question.

If you go into a group, towards the top right corner there is a (small) link to "Join Group". This should make you a member.

Thanks for the info. I was interested in Zürich Life, for instance, or THE CREATIVE TEAM... How can one tell if a group is close/invitation-only?

Thanks for the info & screen-captures, but it seems I'm too new or something; I don't see the Join Group link:

Re: How does one become a Member of a (Social) Group?

Then it most likely is a noob Thing. 10 post and at least a week of being here (which you are).

No big thing really happens in those, they never actually picked up.

You were trying to join "EF Sex Gods" weren't you? :P

Nothing, it's been dead for years.

Plus, If you have to say you are a Sex god then you probably aren't
