Supposedly i am a member of a few groups on dA, a couple that i was invited to and a few that i requested to join.
I'm slightly dubious of the ones i requested, because my requests were responded to instantly - and though it had only been a minute or two the messages saying i was accepted were labelled as being from an hour before i even sent my requests :P So that's weird.

I would like to be able to change up the one on my profile header. #EquestriaAfterHours is cool and all, but that is the only one dA allows me to put up there, and i can't take it off either. Is having a group up there a premium membership thing? Am i no longer able to change it because my premium membership expired?

Ah well.

Hey guys :D I'm journaling WOOOOO

I feel like i haven't done any pony art in forever. And while it's true that i don't do enough [art in general], the reason i haven't posted any here is because i have like a bunch that just aren't finished. Lots of colouring to do. ;_;

Hope everyone's doing well <3

Could someone explain the benefit and/or purpose of joining a group?

If you want to change the group on your profile header, go to the profile page of the group you'd like to change to, and under the group's icon there's a little box that has your username and "Member/etc." Click on that, then click on "Make this my main group" and agree to it. That's all you need to do :3
I hope that helps~

Also in the designer for your DA page there is a widget which shows the groups you joined recently. I don't know about changing the group in the header though.

Don't worry about the instant reply, most groups do that because they have lots of members who join just to see the artwork. I joined lots of groups because they are one of the most useful features of DA right now. The community is so big that it is becoming too difficult to track all the individual artists and many artists do artwork of many different genres, not all of which you may be interested in. Because of that gaining new watchers is more difficult than it was some years ago, so the quality controlled groups and larger groups (500+ users) are quite good for visibility if you contribute to the galleries.

You are a contributor to that group. So that's the one that will appear up there until you are either contributor or mod of another group, then I think you can choose.

DA groups are strange. I am apparently a mod of one and at the same time not. I have no clue. I get mod only notices...

i think they have a bot answering for them, so it would be no wonder that it would answer as it did.

The group thing confuses the hell out of me, and I'm only a member of one and following another.

If your requests are responded to immediately, it sounds like the mods have open membership where people dont need permission to join. I run one group and it does get very confusing sometimes... Like deleting previously sent notifications and journals!

This is correct. In the group settings, you can set how join requests are handled.
There are the following options:
Join requests
* are not allowed
* are automatically approved
* are subject to vote
So if it's set to auto approve, new members will get the approval message back instantly and automated.

You mean the one that is to the left for deviant for xx years thing on your main profile page? Look at mine, it says the winged guar.
Anyway if that's the correct thing your speaking of, its because your a moderator for that group, if your a mod for others they may show up there.
Hope that helps. :love:
