Hello GT’ers. This is the most recent invite thread for Groupthink.
If you would like posting access to Groupthink, please respond to this thread, ideally with a link to your Kinja page and perhaps a jaunty comment, if you'd like to be considered.
The best way to get authorship is to post constructively and create a positive rapport with the community (the longer the better so we can get to know you). If you haven't been invited yet, it doesn't mean you haven't done those things. In fact, please try again! The more of a commenting history you build, the better the mods/admins who select authors (we're a whole team) can get to know you. As gentle and friendly reminder to everyone who reads this thread, GT author or not, the moderators generally frown on people acting like assholes to each other on Groupthink and we will take that into consideration when granting or removing authorship privileges.
If you haven't gotten authorship rights on previous invite threads, please feel free to request again in this one.
In general, I will not respond in thread to requests to let you know whether or not you're accepted. This is both because the process is time consuming for all of us admins and because the potential for drama and bad feelings is awfully high. This round of invites will last for a few days, so you can always try later on to see if you can post (you'll have the option for post to Groupthink when you click your name or when you compose a post if you're in). So play around! And give us some time as every mod and admin also has a bunch of RL stuff to handle, too. Because this process is indefinite, you'll have indefinite chances. Try not to sweat it too much! And as always, even if you can't author new posts, you can respond to any post made in GT, and we try to have regular open threads for everyone to participate in.
NOTE: Do not email firstname.lastname@example.org (me, Slay Belle) to request posting access to GT. The proper procedure is to respond to one of these invite threads. I'm there to handle all sorts of other problems, concerns, or comments you may have, but the GT team is larger than just me, and they want to help you out too. I will not respond to emails requesting posting access.
Groupthink is a place for Jezzies to hang out and talk in their own open forum, same as always. If you want something moderated that happened on Groupthink, you can contact me or one of the admins (such as Chritter or Baby Jane).
