What is going on with Admin Invites

janetfo747 ~ Dreaming of Africa says:

Running to problems in one of my groups, were i can not complete a admin invite

when i invite the photo, flickr response "cant invite photo to group"
No problem with the members name, she is a member, photo is safe, member is not banned - what else can it be?

Just for my own interest i invited another one of her photos and it was fine

I need help because this happens often

thank You JanO

Any chance the photo is already in the group?

Are the group and photo such that you could share with us?

I will just guess here, because Im not sure how our admin rights work - could be the picture in question does not fit group settings and for that reason cannot be invited (?). By settings I mean 1/ safetly level and/or 2/ content type.

Does the photo meet all other requirements you have on the moderation settings of the group: Media type, Content type and Geo information?

in too many groups

An invite overrides that rule.

In a thread with mag3737, ernstkers, mcnod — in order of appearance — and you, there is often something new to learn...😀

Edit: I meant you as someone we can learn from, too, by the way, not just as someone who can learn from them, as we all can...

Oops, I hope that an occasional bit of praise for some helpful regulars is not against the Help Forum Guidelines. 😎

I was a long fight ...but the staff helped very well.
Maybe, if you encounter a similar problem , ask them to correct it. "

That was a different issue months ago.

I don't know if this is related to Janet's issue, but a few times recently, I've tried to join groups that have invited my photos, only to get "Something went wrong with joining the group." I just tried it again with the "Bridge It!" group, with the same result. The photos were accepted to the groups despite my not being able to join them.
