    Sweet @deneen-brazilleDeneen,
    There is no need to use your own tag, tags are only meant to address a person.
    I am sorry in case we were not clear.
    When you use the tag format to mention somebody, the person in question is being notified that you did. So the tag system is only to alert those people that you wish to read your comment.

    Correct. Given your comment, am I right to assume you meant this to be a group focused on Social Media? If so, that topic falls under our Community Faculty.

    Do you feel we should give this group a different name @deneen-brazille?

    • I was not meaning social media I was just meaning being social period. I would put a little rule board or something of the sort that explains that this is a place for local guides to connect, collaborate and learn from one another. That the group will be as strong as the team makes it

      That way they have a clear understanding of what the group is…[Read more]

    As we do not allow for social banter on the various forums and study groups, (Academy Rule) we felt that our Academy should have a place to chill and relate to one another when we are not talking serious Local Guides stuff.

    Thank you for your encouraging feedback. Also, thank you for sharing this cool art work. I don’t seem to be able to open it (yet another bug?), but first would like to ask, what is the source of your image. We are paranoid about breaking any copyright rules here 🙂

    • I think that the image on top is a little confusing it isn’t really relevant to duplicate besides the wording. I had no idea what this was about until I click on the red and that was just to see if it worked
