I’m so happy that you made this club @CynicalPink ! I look forward to seeing the art that everyone makes. Also, I hope you get to feeling better soon!

@BatJamags I’m getting the same message.

Yeah, I’m getting an “Access Denied” message when I click on it.

I looked through my own club’s settings. I think the club might not be publicly visible, but I think it’s the mods and not the club leaders who control that (at least, I didn’t see a button to make mine not-public and I have no record of making it public in the first place in the log). So… @Applejack! @Pretty.Poison.Bombshell! Help!

Won’t let me join :pensive:

@BatJamags, TYSM for getting everyone rounded up while I’ve been MIA!

Sorry about the tech glitch, everyone. Last night, when getting the basics in place, I noticed that I couldn’t make the adjustment that allows people to join freely (it was supposed to be the default, but the option is entirely greyed out on my end). Maybe it’ll kick in when Watchtower makes the official announcement about the new groups. Otherwise, I’ll send another shoutout to AJ and PPB if they don’t respond to Jamag’s mention.

Ty everyone for being so patient while I get over the flu ! I’m really excited about getting this underway!

@biff_pow, @serenap95, @Jay_Kay, @BatJamags , @AquamonC137 - I tried to add you guys manually in the meanwhile, but I’m not sure it accepted it. The group now says 6 members, but you’re all hidden.

Finally!!! Can’t express this enough! Although…I can’t draw :neutral_face: so this will be very much a learning experience.

Am I correct to assume the first prompt will be tomorrow? Can we use a digital software if so?
