  • Who wants to do a private November 16 group? On The Bump - not Facebook. Private groups are unmonitored by BGs. 
    Yes. That. Let's.
    I agree. Let's do it.

  • I'm into it.
     @KilgraveMadeMeDoIt I'm so sorry. What youre dealing with is so intense. I can relate, not as a mother, but as a sibling and through my work. It's not easy. You're doing a great job just doing your best.

    Should we wait for a certain amount of love tits as votes for the group before we make one? Or... just go for it? 

    Also we can swear with no repercussions in private groups and it's glorious.

  • Did they mention something in this thread about almost being banned or the bump not banning them after multiple strikes? Maybe the bump gods heard that and investigated more thoroughly. I'm not into censorship so I don't think the quality or content of ones posts should be evaluated to determine a violation. However, I certainly think supposed TOU violations need to be viewed in context. Because their posts did not, in my view, appear to be violations.

    I love this idea! But just as a heads up, when I was lurking another board I saw that some people did get banned for things they said in private groups. Private groups are technically still monitored I think, or at least that's what the general group consensus was there. That being said, I don't understand the rules of warnings/bans/monitoring/etc. so I could be totally wrong.

  • @KilgraveMadeMeDoIt Sending positive vibes your way that they can figure out why this is happening. Your son sounds so sweet and smart. It must be incredibly hard to see him having meltdowns and not being able to get through to him and help him. We're hear to listen and hopefully give you some support or at least some laughs.  <3

    I can't figure out how to require a message with the request to join... Anyone know how to add that?

    I think it's automatic, mine prompted me when I asked to join.

  • It definitely asks for a reason when you request... if people don't put one I think maybe we should PM them to find out?

    Interesting. I didn't see an option to read messages anywhere... ETA could be user error on my part though.

  • A private group may help, but I was lurking on July16 last night, and they were saying the private groups now appear to be monitored. And if you click on the Private Group Rules, it no longer exists, so I'm wondering if they're currently changing them to be monitored more. Just a warning that private groups may not be as private as they used to be...

  • Group created. Join here: https://forums.thebump.com/group/981-n16-clubhouse

    I hope that link takes you to the right place. LMK if it doesn't. 
    FYI - If you try to join and it tells you something about duplicate user name error, check your inbox for an invite. Apparently you cannot request to join if you've been sent an invite. Also I was unable to accept the invite unless I was on the desktop site.

    ETA: Love tits go here to vote for private group creation.  Clever group name suggestions also welcome.

  • Man,  I had the best answer all typed out (on mobile,  no less) as to why I want to join the private group and it was all, "your answer is 200 characters too long" 

    Someone just missed out on several sentences worth of gold that I had to delete. Your loss.  :D

    I put "you know why" because I didn't realize it mattered. We all know why though.  >:)
