Make your request here. If you have a special name in mind for your forum, let me know. If you decide you'd like your forum name changed, you can let me know here, too!
You can request more than one Artists' forum, if you need one.
You can also request additional moderators for your private forums. This may be useful for collaborative projects.
Once you have an Artists forum, you can start adding members:
Members can request access to your forum and you can choose to give them access or not. To invite someone to your forum, ask them to request access to your member group.
To request access to an Artist's forum member group:
Hover over the [username} button on the top right corner.
Click "Forum Profile" in the menu that becomes visible
On the next page, hover over "Modify Profile".
Click "Group Membership" in the menu that becomes visible.
Click the group you want to join. You can fill out a reason for wanting to join, or leave the form blank I think.
To approve a membership request
You'll see a button called "Moderate" beside the "Community" button. If you have a pending request, there will be a number superimposed over the button. Click the number and you'll go to a page that shows you all the pending requests.
Click the MemberGroup Requests link.
On the next page, all the pending requests for your forum will be listed.
Click the check box beside a request, and choose the action you want to take from the drop down menu. You can approve or disapprove, with or without a reason.
Note: Administrators can view the private Artists Forums.
