The Group Memberships section of your User Control Panel (User CP) shows you which groups you are a member of. It will include your primary group, which for non-staff members will normally be “Registered”, and possibly one or both of the private Erotic Lit. and Writers Workshop groups.
If you are not a member of a private group, you can request to join it here by clicking the “Join Group” button.
For the Erotic Lit. group, you must specify your actual age in years in the “Reason” box, just as though you were presenting identification as proof of age for a purchase. Please don't be shy about it!
No reason is required for the Writers Workshop group.
Once your request has been approved by a moderator, you will be able to see and access the related private folder. Note that the moderators are not here 24/7 and access may not be immediate.
If you are a member of a private group already, you can also choose to leave the group here. If you do leave, you will have to request to join again if you wish to return.
It is not possible to leave your primary group.
