You might want to add a URL to an auxiliary website, such as a group page that you've established on the OAC Archive wiki, or something directly related to the subject matter of the group. Personal pages or blogs should not be added to the group simply to self-advertise.
Important: The OAC is committed to keeping all aspects of this site open and available for public participation. We therefore request that when creating a new group, you select the default Privacy option to allow "Anyone" to view and join your group, without moderating its membership. If you do not select this option, your group may be subject to deletion by one of the administrators.
If you have already mistakenly created a group with moderated membership, it is not possible to modify the privacy settings. The only option is to delete it (the entire group) and create it again as a public group. If you choose to do this with an active group, please be aware that all of the existing forum posts, comments and other content on the group page will be deleted, so back up your information accordingly and inform your group members before deleting their comments and posts.
