Groups

The MM Groups feature is a fantastic way to find others on the site with interests similar to yourself.  You can search for and join an existing group or create your own.

There are 3 types of Groups on Microminimus

  1. Fan Groups
    Groups for Members to appreciate a particular Contributor.

  2. Location Groups 
    Groups for people from a particular location – great to meet people near you, or in a place you’re planning to visit. 

  3. Interest Groups
    Groups for any shared interest you can think of that would bring members together.
     

Public Groups : All MMMembers can join the group and contribute to the discussion.

Private Groups: All MMMembers must request to be part of the group, it is the role of the group admins to accept/reject group requests.
