Wandering Shop friends, someone from another instance asked for an invite to here. I'm brand new, though, and don't know the how those are given or if there are criteria! Can someone help me out?
@reedsandstrings click on the gear icon and scroll down to Invite People. Select a number of invites rather than unlimited please to prevent bad actors and bots from endlessly joining
@reedsandstrings I don’t know how to guide you right to it if we’re not in the same app, but I think near the bottom of your own profile page is a “invite others” link that generates a login code.
