    I was invited to join a group called “Share Your Art Work,” but felt is best to decline the invitation since that would be the last place I have anything to share. I never could draw anything and at painting , I would be only a splasher, but wait, some would call that art. Anyway, I do appreciate the invitation. Is there a table tennis group?

    Yes I understand what you are saying. It is best to join groups you find you will be able to relate and contribute. I don’t believe that there is a table tennis group. Anyone is allowed to create a group here on blogjob. You also are rewarded 2 points for each that you start. It is fairly easy to run them too. Very little work on your part.

    Do you enjoy playing table tennis in your spare time? I have played forever ago it seems. Was so fun. Would enjoy playing again. But seeing as I live in an apartment I wouldn’t be able to get my own table really. Might be able to find a location near by to go. But since cash is fairly low most of the time for me I don’t know how often I could go.

      @sadiemarie, I do play table tennis with sever other retired men and women in the over 55 community where we live. I had not played for many years, but it came back to me quickly. We play doubles and there are some tournament level players in the group.

    I just did a search in the groups, and found one Table Tennis group. But it hasn’t been active for the last 8 months. 🙂

      @kaka135, you are so sweet to look!

      It’s sad that so many groups here are inactive. And we lose points if we leave the group too 🙁

      @ruby3881 I was wondering if there is a search feature for the group, so it’d be easier for us to search for any groups we might be interested in, and there I found the Table tennis group.

      I didn’t know points will be deducted if we leave the group. I think I’d better be more careful in joining the groups from now onward. 😀

      Hope with more members now, those groups will be active again. 🙂

      I agree it appears some groups have become dormant how I wish we do not have to bargain with our points when we choose to look elsewhere

      I became aware of that through comments on this forum post.

    You should join. Because if you will join then you will get some knowledge about art from that group.

      And yet, I would have nothing to contribute. It makes no sense to me to join a group where you are unable to share, in this case, art.

    I feel I should join but when I join I made it clear whether or not I would be able to participate. However, I write regularly if a group is active. I have not yet started a group of my own even after 8 months or little more on this site though.

      After about a week, I am thinking about a group, but first will explore to see if one I have in mind already exists.

    I have declined a couple of group invitations because they are not topics I am interested in. I’m sure the admins are not offended as like most you invite everyone, and an invite means you can accept or decline. I am not offended if no one joins my groups, and am surprised when people do.

      Yes, why join a group unless you are sure you are interested and able to or want to be part of it.

    Anyone has the freedom to accept or to deny a group invitation. No one is compelled to do so. By the way, you are looking for a tennis group or forum, why not create it by yourself and invite others to join. That would be 2 points for you.

      I play table tennis, and just wondered if there was a group based on that interest, but crating a group to gain two points without being committed to it seems a bit pointless. Other replies here seem to bear that out.

    I am hardly active in any of the groups I have joined. So I am refraining from joining new groups.

      I understand that. It seems a little pointless to do so.

    I had to decline a group because it was religious and I am not religious.

      I too would have to decline that group. That is what invitations are for. We can decline or accept.

      Yes – especially if I cannot relate to the group. But I have noticed some groups I have joined are not very active.

      From other comments I see here, that is not uncommon.

      I agree. There are some groups – I visit and post but no one writes back. 🙂

    That is not a good thing for Blogjob at all.

    Barbara, I suspect that you are right and will be careful about enlisting in groups. Those checkboxes would be a good idea.

    @barbrad I wish I’d declined most of the invitations I received, but I often feel like it’s insulting the people who invite me if I decline them. Now I belong to so many groups that I struggle to find the ones I’m really interested in.

    @gina145, This is a good cautionary tale for Newbies like me. Thanks
