Visible Party Pay - Create one big Nthcircle party!

One wonders about the reasons why Visible made the changes to PartyPay, but the motive must have been to improve the Visible experience. Perhaps the fact that one had to join and rely on a small group of strangers in order to get the discount was a problem for some prospective customers, especially considering that if one or more members of the group decided to leave in any given month, the other members would need to concern themselves with getting new members to join the group. So having no limits to party group size pretty much does away with concerns about people leaving a party. Yet if one still needs to join a party possibly containing hundreds or thousands of people in order to get the monthly discount, what's the point of that hoop. Visible appears to desire the creation of a shared community experience, but seems to be a little uncertain how best to do it. Maybe the new forum will succeed.

I think the better solution would have been to raise the cap on the number of members to 8 or 10, with 4 remaining the minimum requirement to get the full discount

Agreed! Maybe even cap it to 20 but certainly not unlimited.

I have a couple of times but it quickly gets lost.  I don't quite understand people who are trying to fill their own groups without even 4 yet.  Might as well join a more established one.  Perhaps they aren't aware of the changes yet.

That or they think they can keep control of the group which is not the case as I understand it (anyone can approve or deny someone). If I am wrong, please do enlighten me.

Mmfacemm,

1 person on that thread is fully aware of the changes. They say they have 25 people.

The owner of the group is the only one who can remove people?

Anyone can remove themselves from a Party.

I tried to look at your specific scenario: I don't know if it's possible for a group 'owner' to remove an individual at all. When approving a new member, party members get an emailed notice of first name and partial phone number. But after that point, there doesn't even seem to be a way to retrieve a list of your current party members, so I'm not sure there's a way for even the Party originator to remove somebody.

I also don't know for certain what happens if the original Party organizer leaves: my best guess is that all Parties are Zombie Parties, and continue indefinitely on their own, stumbling through the landscape as long as there is at least one existing member. (Any Party member can invite new members to the Party, and any Party member can approve new member requests.

It would be wrong if someone could join a group and then start removing people so I am glad that is not possible. You never know what kind of crafty person with some sort of weird agenda might get up to.
