please read profile before joining?

I just wanted to say to please read the profile of the group before you join. i like peertraining because there are so many diverse groups but I really want a group with a starting goal like myself I started a group to look for other people who have the same amount of weight to lose so I know we will all have the same common issues so I post I want people who need a great amount of weight to lose and someone always joins who is like only 5-10 lbs. overweight and then they never post. also if you are in a group and stop posting because it wasnt for you please quit the right way so it can be open for a new member to join. just had to vent my frustration.

you can't read the group's complete profile without joining the group

You can read some of it, the summary. And, if you join and find it isn't for you, you can leave.

Also, if it's called "for people looking to lose 100+ lbs," and you need to lose 10, just don't join. Just like if it's called "Christian mothers in Alabama," and you're single, Jewish and live in California, don't join.

I pretty much agree with the OP but would mention that sometimes it's a problem for people like me who enjoy some degree of diversity to figure out which groups really want to have a narrow focus and which ones just have a profile that describes the person who started the group. Maybe 10% of the profiles on each end of the scale are crystal clear about that but the 80% in the middle leave it somewhat to the imagination.

BUT:

yes, you can't read the complete group profile or see who the people are without joining the group, BUT what you can do it join the group, read it all for a few minutes, and then if that's not for you just leave the group. No harm done, and no one even noticed you were there looking.

8:25, you are EXACTLY right! That is the way to "join a group"...or not.

New: The PEERtrainer Cheat System
The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
