Lesa, thanks for the reply. I created the group when I noticed a post on smartUSA's facebook page, from Theresa Rogers. Then I posted a link for it there. I am always happy to have more folks get enthused about the smart and become new owners. I have had that feeling since we got spice and still feel that way.
Thanks for clearing my confusion. It's interesting to see your view of joining the 'wanta' group. It looks like the join page needs work. You shouldn't have to make up a date to join. (have to see If that can be fixed)
It's true to join a sUSAi group you need to have a sUSAi 'My Page', think of it as a garage for your car when you get it. The wanta group is your lounge to hang out with fellow future owners. The main reason for the My Page is so you can respond to comments, post blogs, upload pix, videos and even make groups for things you like. We all have more interests than just our smarties, even though the smart is the common thread.
