Here is an idea for improvement:

Allow the 'admin' of a group to 'remove' someone from the group he administers!

Thanks!! RiTz21

You've got my vote for this. :)

Could you tell me a little more? Why do you need it? I just want to have a scenario in my head so I can build the right thing.

For me I had a person that joined for the wrong reason... they thought it was something it wasn't and I had to bug the person multiple times to remove themselves. Another reason I can see is that the person gets access to the private areas, which you may not want just anyone to get access too.

Another thing that might be good is to allow admins to switch their group membership requests to need their approval before the person can join.

How about Spammers? What if someone joins a group in which he simply does not belongs to?

As a Group Admin, you should have the ability to remove any of those who 'join' your group...!!

Count me in with the suggestions above. I'd really rather use this site as a landing page for my group but I can't do that unless I have more control over who can join the group. Once I do, then I'll have my GMs put a link to this group in the game submission form for conventions that we run at.

+1 It's a really good idea.

"Could you tell me a little more? Why do you need it? I just want to have a scenario in my head so I can build the right thing."

ok a situation came up where this would be quite useful: One of the users in my group had forgotten that he already had an account, and went ahead and created a second account which joined the same group...

So this person now has 2 nicknames in my Group!! I wish to 'kick' off one of his nicknames, so that he only has ONE in the group.

So how is this progressing? Any chance of possibly getting this functionality since the original request in 2011?

I am now the proud administrator of a group that was started on NearbyGamers 5+ years ago and none of the members are currently alive, let alone still playing in our group.

Yes, it was that kind of group.

No, they weren't warned.

Plus, we've moved house.

Anyway, I'd like to remove them please.
