I'm going to be in Jerusalem for the summer, so I wouldn't mind starting that one, but how do I know who to invite or how do I let people know how to access it is my question?

First thing is to change the title of this thread to Whatsapp Groups Master Thread (or make a new one)
Have a wiki of who you need to pm to request access to the group.
If the person meets the  prerequisites of that group whatever they may be, the host should add that persons mobile number to his contact list and add him to group.

True that on the title. It is very misleading.

I RTM'd, see if it helps.
Now on to the rules and regs of the groups. Should they be open to anyone? Status? Etc....?

Sounds like a plan!
Anyone care to offer alternatives?
If not would be gr8 to get something like this started.
Any interest in a lakewood group?
Any vol. to host it? I don't mind doing it but if anyone wants the job, be my guest

I don't mind starting it, though I don't know if I'll qualify to be in the group ::)
I only paid 15% by switching to dansdeals

Well maybe the host could have an exception.. :)
But in all seriousness I think the host should preferably be a more seasoned DDF'r someone who people would trust with their cell #. Doubt I fall into that catagory either.

I suppose that's another benefit of groupme over whats app, on groupme there is a way to invite someone without them giving you their phone number, and if they are a member of group me only their name will be available and not their phone number.

With Whatsapp the only one that would need all the numbers is the host. CMIIW but I don't think the other members can see everyone elses number.
I still like whatsapp over groupme though
