Group Join Buttons Don't Work!

antonychammond says:

I know I've posted about this before but when I am invited to join some groups and click on the join button all I get is an "oops something went wrong" message. I have tried to find other posts with this problem but can't find any. Is there a flickr staff member who can help me please?

Edit: Did you read Melanie’s email, two months ago?
Did it not help?
Did you reply to it?
No need to start the help train again from scratch...

Maybe you've reached the limit of 5000 groups. I recently did, and that's the message I would get. You would have to leave less-important groups to join new ones.

Interesting. I remember a time when a single photo was allowed to be added to 5000 groups (max). I'm not sure I was aware that this was also the limit to the number of groups a member could join, although it appears that I may have been aware of this as a restriction at one point in time:

4,722 public groups! No wonder you wore out the Join button!

Seriously, though, did you get the email? Did you check the right mailbox? The junk mail? Did you reply to her and give details?

They cannot flip a magic switch without your cooperation!
