 +====== Creating, managing, moderating, and disbanding groups ======
 +This page explains how to create and manage groups and focuses on tasks that group owners, officers, and moderators would typically perform. ​ Before reading this article, be sure to read Joining and participating in groups for a general introduction to groups. ​
 +
 +===== Creating a group =====
 +==== Prerequisites ====
 +Anyone can create a group in Mobius Grid, but remember:
 +
 +  - It costs ₲25 to create a group.
 +  - Any group that has less than two members for 48 hours is automatically disbanded.
 +
 +When you create a group, you automatically become the group'​s owner. ​ That is, you will be assigned the Owners role. 
 +
 +==== Process ====
 +To create a group:
 +
 +  - Choose **Communicate > Groups** or right-click on your avatar and choose My Groups.
 +  - Click the **+ button** then choose **New Group...**
 +  - Enter the name of the group. ​ The name must be at least four and less than 36 characters long.  Every group name must be unique in Second Life; you won't be allowed to create a group that has the same name as an existing group.
 +  - Optionally, create a group insignia (image) by clicking on the image thumbnail and then choosing a texture from your inventory.
 +  - Optionally, write a brief description of the group.
 +  - To make the group open (anyone can join without an invitation) select **Anyone can join**. ​ If you don't select this, then only those invited will be able to join.
 +  - If you want the group to have a cost to join, select **Cost to join** and choose a number of **₲**.
 +  - Select the group'​s maturity rating. ​
 +  - Click **Create Group** and confirm your choice when prompted.
 +
 +After you create a group, one of the first things you will want to do is to set up roles and abilities. See Creating new roles for more information.
 +**Important:​** Once you create a group, you cannot change its name.  So be certain of the name you choose, since you won't be able to rename it! 
 +
 +===== Opening the group profile =====
 +
 +To view the profile of a group and modify it (if you have the required abilities):
 +
 +  - Choose **Communicate > Groups** or right-click on your avatar and choose **My Groups**. The People window opens to the Groups tab.
 +  - Select the desired group. ​
 +  - Mouse over the group name and click the **View profile** button. The group profile window opens.
 +
 +The group profile window has four sections, described in the following table.
 +^  Section ​ ^  Settings you can view and edit  ^  What you can do (if you have required ability) ​ ^
 +^  General ​ | Group description |  Change your role  |
 +^ ::: |  Member list  | ::: |
 +^ ::: |  Whether the group is open or closed ​ | ::: |
 +^ ::: |  Cost to join  | ::: |
 +^ ::: |  Group maturity rating ​ | ::: |
 +^ ::: |  Whether the group is shown in search results ​ | ::: |
 +^  Roles  |  List of members, their roles, and abilities ​ |  Invite new members ​ |
 +^ ::: |  List of roles and associated abilities ​ | ::: |
 +^ ::: |  List of abilities and which roles have each ability ​ | ::: |
 +^  Notices ​ |  View notice archive and open attachments ​ |  Send notices ​ |
 +^  Land/​Assets ​ |  View land holdings ​ |  Change your land contribution ​ |
 +
 +===== Inviting others to your group =====
 +To invite someone to a group to which you belong:
 +  - Right-click their avatar and choose **Invite to Group**. ​
 +  - The GROUPS window opens, displaying all the groups to which you have permission to invite people.
 +  - Select the desired group
 +  - Click **OK**.
 +
 +The person immediately sees a group invitation. ​ You can also invite multiple people at one time.  See Inviting someone to join a group for more information.
 +**Note:** Your group must have at least two members within 48 hours or else it will be automatically disbanded! ​
