Hello, I thought that I'd better mention that if anyone is wanting to join the Rossendale Freecycle group (Search for "Rossendale" here.) then you shouldknow that you need to sign up to Yahoo and get a Yahoo account.
Also if your not going to use the Yaho email account they force you to take, you need to add & verify your own email account then set it as default.

Join the group and check your email inbox as you will automatically get some emails. One of them is asking for your location amongst other stuff, it needs a reply and the subject line must be exactly as asked or the erson doing the memberships will not get it (and you won't get in ).

I'm mentioning this here because we do get an awful lot that join up and then either do not check their inbox or do not read the emails & we do not get the reply (so they do not get approved).

Cheers,
Matty

Re: For anybody that wants to join the local Freecycle group!

My parnet tried to join last week and was rufsed as her reason for joiing wasnt good enough?

All she put in the reason was 'I have stuff which other may find of use and there may be something which I need'.

I thought that was the idea of Freecycle?

er?

AFAIK there has not been any refusals because a reason for joining was not good enough.
IN fact the reason is never asked.

Just the persons location & if they are in any other local groups or have previously been a member.

PM me with your partners email address & I'll look into it.

Re: For anybody that wants to join the local Freecycle group!

PM me your details too.

Did either of you reply to the email you got straight after joining?

And are you sure that it's Rossendale Freecycle that you tried joining?

The questions asked are very specific & certainly do NOT ask for a reason for joining.

THey are;
> We need to know the following things before approving your membership.
> 1) Your local area or town name?
> 2) The first 1/2 of your postal code?
> 3) Have you been a member of this Freecycle group before?
> 4) Are you in any other Freecycle Groups?

Oh hang on, there is a question from Yahoo itself that asks for your reasons for joining.. but that is common to all Yahoo groups & not under the control of the Freecycle group volunteers.
It certainly has no bearing whatsoever on the membership.

PM me both your details & I'll OM back with what I can find.

Matty
