Groups are places for members to meet, chat and ask questions about specific topics that interest them.
We have created groups for several countries, as there will always be issues that are only relevant to you and others in your country. People also like the opportunity to easily find other members who live in the same country.
We have created groups for a few interest areas, like NDIS (Australia), Web Accessibility, General Disability Chat, Job Listings and more.
What groups am I in?
To see a listing of all groups that you are a member of, click on the Groups option in any of your personal profile menus.
When you join the MDM Club you are automatically added to the New Members Group and some other broad topic groups.
What is inside a group
The inside of a group is much like the general Club activity stream. Here you can update your status and favorite, comment and share updates from other members of the group.
The group is a place to meet people with the same interests as you. You are likely to find new friends inside the groups you choose to join.
New Members Group
When you first join the MDM Club you will automatically become a member of the New Member Group.
We suggest that you pop into the group to introduce yourself and say hello to others who have recently joined.
You may choose to leave the group at some point, or remain a member and continue to welcome new members to the Club.
How to Join a Group
Click on any of the links to Groups to be taken to the listing of Groups.
By default, the listing will show you all the groups at once. You can click on the drop down list to select categories, or use the search, to find groups that interest you.
- A Public Group is available for anyone to join. Click on the link to join and you will immediately become a member.
- A Private Group has an approval process for membership. Click on the link to request to join the group. Once approved you will receive a notification.
- A Hidden Group will not show in the groups listing unless you are a member of the group. Membership is by invitation only.
Create a Group
Any member can create a group. If you have a passion for a particular topic and see that there are others who share your interest, then a group is the perfect place for you to gather to chat. It doesn't matter if your group membership ends up being small or large.
