  1. Hey! I’m a Figgy. And I was wondering that maybe you could add another thing. When people make groups, some random people join and begin to spam and ruin the RP going on. It’s upsetting. Because even though they aren’t a member or are. Even if you kick them out of the group they keep coming back. So I was wondering maybe you could add something where the group admin has to accept someone if they want to join. Then where people who aren’t members can’t post in the groups. Thanks for reading.

  2. This is a great way to keep away spammers, definitely better then seeing all those useless stories. Well worth the extra step.

  3. The engineers at Figment need to keep in close contact with the people at Wattpad. Keep reading their blog and try keeping up with friends working at similar sites. Sometimes collabing with people from the outside really helps figure out how to stop problems.
