Problems Joining a Group

Stuart Smith_ says:

www.flickr.com/groups/1622949@N23/

Each time I attempt to join the above group, after agreeing to T&C I keep getting an "Oops! Something went wrong joining the group"

I have had the problem for a few days and rebooted (in case)and attempted with different browsers. - Same result.

Any ideas what it may be?

Thanks.

Is there a "Level 5" group? Maybe someone there would know?

This is one of those multi-level award groups.
Since it says, “For Red Group no invitation required”, I assume that to join this one (Black Group) an invitation is required...

Edit: Or do they mean the photos need an invitation and anyone can join?
In that case, there might be a different problem...

I just tried to join for the purpose of seeing if I could, and then removed myself, and yes no problem . So no invitation is required to join.

Is it possible that one of the admins or moderators of this series of groups has banned you?

You can join a maximum of 5000 groups. Do you have that many memberships?

Try leaving a group you care the least about and joining the new group.

The OP belongs to 442 public groups, seems unlikely that he belongs to 4.5k private groups . . . but I do like when people think outside of the box. Like Viejito, I think the OP may have somehow gotten banned from the group in question.

I see that you now control the lower level groups, is that your plan for this level as well? (Just curious)

I took on the lower level groups as the previous admin was no longer active and Flickr granted me access in order to remedy broken codes. I would be happy to pass administrator ship to one of the higher level group admins.

I have been able to join the White Group but I don't think the answer of "oops" would apply to a ban...

Error messages on Flickr can sometimes be non-committal, and Oops covers a multitude of errors.

While I don't know if you can also get this message for some other reason, this is the message you get when you try joining a group where you are banned: "Oops, something went wrong with joining the group."

I appreciate your reply, thanks. As a casual observer, in regards to these groups, I will say I think you have done good things here :-)

If you are asking for help, the answer to your problem seems obvious, but you should start your own thread as we have not yet solved the OP's situation.

Thank you all for comments. It does appear that for some unknown reason, I have received a ban to the group in question. As far as I am aware I have never posted to that group and having progressed through five groups to reach there, it puts a real stumbling block in my path.

Unfortunately, it does not appear that any of the administrators are still active.

try contacting the admin and see if they would explain the ban.

Looks like they did.
