Introduction: Creating the Group
To create a new group:
1. Make sure you are logged into your instructables account.
2. From the drop down menu on the top of the page select: Groups > New group.
3. You will be taken to the New Group page. On the New Group page (where you previously only had the option of choosing a group name, URL, and description) you now have the ability to decide if you want to moderate for Members, Instructables, and Forum Topics.
4. Select the check boxes accordingly.
Step 1: Moderating the Group
As moderator of the group you will receive an e-mail asking your approval every time someone requests to join or submit content to your group (depending on what topics you have chosen to moderate).
A link in the e-mail will take you to the moderator page for that group, or (another way to access that page) you can click the "Manage This Group" button under the description of the group.
The moderator page gives you the option of managing the group's profile, instructables, members, and forums.
Every request received for a new member/ forum topic/ instructable will show up on the moderator page with the option of approving or denying. If you choose deny, the request will disappear from the page. If you choose approve, it will be added to your group, but you will always have the option of removing it, if you change your mind later.
We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
