Hello, apologies if there is a better room or forum for this: I'm wondering if it is possible to add me as an admin/moderator on my local FCC facebook group. The guy who started the group seems to be gone and hasn't responded to my messages, nor responded to my request to join the group. Based on this and the amount/age of posts that I can publicly see on the group, I think it is defunct . I also reached out to Justin Richardson who I think is sort of the shared admin for all FCC facebook groups, but he hasn't responded. A while back I started and ran an FFC group (and facebook group) in my home town, and it was a lot of fun for us, but I've since moved across the country and I'm hoping to do the same thing here. Any help or advice is appreciated, thanks!
cc @QuincyLarson@raisedadead ^ not sure who takes care of the above
As far as I know, local FCC facebook groups are just setup and managed by anyone who decides to set one up. I don't think there is any direct contact with the dev team or Quincy. Might be wrong, but as far as I know you'd need to dm one of the mods of that group
Justin Richardson seemed to be a person associated with FCC at one point. He is a mod of like a fajillion FCC facebook groups, and the FB Group setup instructions on the FCC site used to direct you to add him after the group was set up, I guess so there could be some more centralized control of the groups from FFC's part, if needed.
You can reachout to Quincy for helping you get onboarded on this.
Of course let me know if I can be of any help.
Hello admins! I couldn't find the option or channel on gitter, where I can report something that is wrong certain lesson. I don't mean the bug, but the "logic" in learning path. Something is clearly missing which can cause the learners (like me) the confusion. How can I report it?
@xeho91 The Issues section on the GitHub Repository would be the best place to report your issue.
@mstellaluna@jonathan-grah@raisedadead Thanks for all your help, much appreciated!

What is the status of using to the FCC forum for supporting local study groups? Is that a thing now or an upcoming feature?
@slbccfl the FCC forum used to have dedicated sections for local study groups for each country, but that disappeared recently and was just folded into the general section, probably due to lack of community support in most areas
Not sure if this is the right place
But for some reason, my IP is blocked from making an account on the forums even though I've never made an account. The only FCC account I have is for the main site.
@RandellDawson it sounds like @mannermauler might have been collateral damage of the Netlify problem.
What happened with netlify?
@mannermauler I can't go into exact details, but it's a known issue and we're working on getting this fixed as soon as possible. Rest assured that if you've never been on the forums before, you're not intentionally banned by us :) Please check back regularly to see if the issue has been solved. Our apologies for the inconvenience.
Thanks, will do.
Was something compromised?
Because my dad might've used netlify before as he's a web developer.
Hi Guys, I just wanted to let you all know that this channel is relatively less monitored by the staff, than the staff section on the forum. Please make sure you post on the forum for issues like this as well for quick visibility.
I think the tool should be fine because it does explicitly tells that the cert is verifiable at their freeCodeCamp username URL which will not be the case for abusers. That said, we should not let them advertise it on freeCodeCamp's community channels because that would be spam as per our CoC.
