    Very strange. Are you a member of a Scout Association at present? If not, that'll be why, I believe it is technically only open to present members.

    Very odd. Did you contact a Moderator to ask why you were not admitted?

    no just accepted it with good grace, mainly because I don't know how to contact a moderator.

    Had a look at the thread, Tony. People offering best wishes, thoughts, prayers.

    The Monsoons hit Sri Lanka - every year, twice a year. They are not something that comes as a shock to the population, they know they are coming. It is worse when they don't come.

    If people want to help, then let them. I am sure that many will quietly do so.


    BTW - don't understand why you have been rejected. They have not kicked me out yet...

    join the club!

    i believe it's very easy to get banned from 1st FB.

    sadly, FB thinks i'm a joker or trying to impersonate one.

    No, you are just a troublemaker and they knew it.

    In all seriousness, I have no idea how they set acceptance criteria - there are a lot of posters on 1st FRB that I would not want anywhere near kids...

    Search for the group. Click "Members". Change it from members to admin. You will see three admin and seven mods. I would recommend messaging Jeanette.

    Many thanks Claire I have asked Jeanette so we will find out if I have missed something obvious in the signing in or if I have upset someone.

    The main reason people are rejected is when they have their privacy so locked down that the moderators can't see their freinds list or any of their posts... Such accounts appear from a mod perspective to be very suspicious as there are vast quantities of spambot accounts they look exactly like them

    OK this could well be down to me, when we designed stonehenge our tablets were made of slate. I* have signed up to two face book groups The Scout association facebook page and In Defence of Youth Work. Where I am in conversation with Tim Kidd re attending Carnival as well as Pride and some left of centre youth workers about how 'Youth work' isn't only done by paid youth workers in LEA youth clubs. I haven't 'locked down my prvacy settings' knowingly but might not have released them either. I have posted Jeanette so far I haven't heard back when I click join group it goes from sent then to pending then back to join, am I missing something.
