Are there really only 9 groups?    None of the groups I see listed are worth being interesting.

Thanks, I speak sarcasm.  Why would I join a group when the title doesn't interest me?   I did actually try The Haiku Pond, but too many people post non-haiku posts.    Haikus are always 5-7-5.

Anyway, I'm just surprised there are only 9.    There should be 50-60 options.

I felt the same when I first arrived at this site with the opportunity available for numerous groups yet no one has taken the lead to form new groups What type of group would interest you Perhaps we could put our poetic minds together and form something to your liking
Possibilities are virtually endless

Ah, the Haiku police will be pleased.

Please feel free to step up to the plate and suggest a group, my friend. I look forward to your contributions in the future.

Well, why not allow members to create groups freely?    Personally, I would create an erotica group, but not everyone wants that.   I just don't have time or experience creating visual or audible posts.   I write in text and structure.

They are allowed to create groups, but this site IS run by Webmiss, and I think that that's a good way to run things. It'd be cluttered with groups and people would created groups that have nothing to do with poetry. Is my best guess. The way it's run is not what we're discussing here.  

Discussion point: should we have an erotica group? Not whether the other groups here are wonderful and teaming with lovely people, I'm sure they are.

The answer seems to be a resounding yes. Albeit there were only two options. Yes and yes.

Ok, does it NEED an group facilitator? Or can it be opened up without moderation? If not, then who?

So only one person can create and moderate groups?  That would be why there are only nine.   Anyway, I'm insignificant (obviously) and will continue to write , but a group for erotica would be a great resource.

I don't know. I'm a grunt too. Just imagine how cluttered the site would become if everyone made groups. Let's keep it simple.  The site functions well, it's well managed. Webmiss is the perfect leader, the people congratulate each other at their achievements while the person who leads sits back and manages them accordingly. Everyone wants to be chief, no one wants to follow. I'm a good #2 if there is someone who is willing to help?

Well, all the other sites seem to be fine with member facilitation.  It doesn't matter how many there are, databases are searchable.  If inactivity isnthe concern, create a macro to search inactive groups and delete them.

Anyway, again, it doesn't matter.  I'd be glad to help with groups or any area of DUP.  I think it is a great resource for young writers.   I just don't think they want help maintaining it.

Sounds decent enough. I'd say get your idea together, get a couple of like minded people, share ideas, decide on the group's function
knock some guidelines together

work it all into two or three paragraphs  then present it to webmiss  she what she thinks

go from there (in my humble opinion)

Skyfucker, sounds like a NIN song. I can't be boss. I'm power hungry,  megalomaniac, you give me an iota of power and it's Queen Cerci meets Maleficent. Nah, I'm a good grunt, number two. Keep me out of power please. I'm a service droid.
