As you may have noticed, earlier this week the number of people you can invite per day dropped to 50 people. This was done in an effort to combat spam and reduce system load (the email delays some of you saw last week and this week were a side effect of people abusing the invite system).
It is important to note that while the invitation limit has been lowered, it does NOT mean that only 50 people can join your group. Additionally, if you want to encourage more than 50 people at a time to join, you can still send them an email directing them to either:
* Visit your group home page @ http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GROUPNAME and click the Join This Group button.
* Go directly to your Join Page: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/GROUPNAME/join
* Send email to your group subscribe address: GROUPNAMEemail@example.com
Note: In all three cases make sure to replace "GROUPNAME" with the actual name of your group (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org)
While we know that this can be frustrating for people looking to start a large group quickly, we are currently working on a new feature that will prevent measures like this in the future. We'll be sure to keep you updated on future developments on the blog (http://www.ygroupsblog.com).
