Deleting group invites

MarkBee3 says:

I have received a number of invites to post images on groups but the invite only has an ‘accept’ box, not a ‘reject’ option. How do I reject an invite. Thanks.

Look for a little "X" usually displayed inconspicuously somewhere around at the invite box.

You may need to hover your mouse over the area to make the 'X' appear that mentioned.

Hmm. I regularly get accept and reject options, and don't have to hunt for an X.

When I get this sort of invitaton, there's always a "No Thanks" box. That could be because I always come across the invites on my Recent Activity page vs. the individual photo's page.

The X (IIRC) is at the top right of the invite, it can be hard to spot, obscured by the invite itself.

I think either something isn't working properly or there may be an issue with the length of the group name. I had a group invitation a couple of days ago from a group with a very long name (65 characters including spaces) and no amount of hovering over any part of it (on the drop-down Notifications list) reveals an x or any other way of declining it. In fact there isn't even a Join button either. The only thing I can do is go to the group via the link.

Perhaps it depends whether they're inviting a specific photo (where I've certainly seen a decline button) or, as in my case, simply inviting you to join the group. If I look at the same invitation on my phone, there is a Join button, but still not a decline one. Meanwhile under Recent Activity: All the invitation doesn't appear at all.

Just got an invite today so here's what I see:

the left image is the invite, and the right half is the invite when hovered over, you can see the obscured 'x'. (Click the image above for a bigger view)

As Francis Mansell explains above this works if a specific picture of yours has been invited to the group, but not if you have been invited to join the group as a member. I have the same issue as Francis, I have recieved invitations from groups that I have no interest for, and I would like to remove the invitations from my activity.

Same here. The group title is so long it runs into another post, and if no thanks is clicked, the other person’s post opens up. Can you block a group? It’s becoming an issue with the frequency. I don’t ever expect to post into a paranormal group.....

No, because groups don't send invites. The admin of the group does. If you block the admin(s) of that group, then they cannot send invites for your photos.

BLOCK IS THE ULTIMATE WAY.
IF ONE GIVES A COMMENT ON MY STREAM, I STOP INVITES.
THE SAME IS AN EMAIL FOR ME.

IF YOU BLOCK ME AS ADMIN I REBLOCK AND BAN FROM ALL OF MY
groups, Cause i can never communicate with this Member.

Regards effi

You can be kicked out of a group and banned from a group.
You can be blocked from communicating with another flickr member.

Which of these happened to you?

Can’t you temporarily change the magnification of the page — by ctrl-scrollwheel — until the two no longer overlap? Then ctrl-0 to return to normal.

Replying to cant enter into group _ there was not a notice to imply that I was blocked or rejected for any reason _ I just get 403 code saying _ not the page you are looking for and permission not granted to view group .. besides, I am one of the administrators..

That kinda sounds like the group itself has been entirely deleted from Flickr. This isn't possible for a group admin to do unless all other members (including admins) have been removed from the group. And admins cannot remove other admins.

So if I am right on all of the above (not 100% certain), the remaining conclusion is that Flickr staff deleted the group for some reason.

New update to my situation _ for now it seems I can return to the group that I was blocked from entering _ not exactly sure what or why that event occurred , but at least for now I am content and satisfied with the fact , good-day - everyone !!
