    The instructions in the first post are slightly out of date, so I will update them after posting this.

    In short, I now have it set up so that maf will receive notifications when people request to join the Maple Society usergroup.

    AlainK, would you mind trying it out for us?

    Click on your name in the upper right corner of the forums, select Join User Groups, then under Maple Society click on Join User Group and Confirm. Then we'll see if maf gets the notification.

    Thanks @AlainK. That's good enough confirmation for me, but I'd like to test to see if @maf can do the approval so it may be a day or so before approval.

    Yes, I think it is working. I had a moderation icon appear in the top left of my screen and when I clicked on it I saw Alain's request which I approved. Hopefully that worked. (Sorry for the slight delay but I have been busy at work so may have been a couple of days since I last found the time to log in.)

    Now I know what to look for it should be easy enough to spot every time I log in.

    I didn't realize you were doing a test, as I don't hang out here. I got the notification too, just ignored it.

    I forgot to reply: the mention "Maple Society" appears under my avatar.

    Again, not that it is that important, it was just to make sure I could get access to the messages for the members of the society...

    Just read a message telling me "more than 1/2 done with around 350 packs of seed put together. Clearly a huge job... I expect if it hasn't gone out already, it won't be long now."

    Wow! We'd better do our best for these seeds to germinate, huge job indeed.

    The procedure to get access to the private forum was changed a little last year. Now when you ask to join, you will be asked to provide a pass word to the admin. The pass word is located on page 2 current newsletters. So once you receive your first newsletter, you should be good to go to join the private forum.

    It is listed as a subforum at the top of the Maples forum for those members.
