    How do I go about leaving a group of which I am a member?

    Public and hidden groups offer a “Leave Group” button on the group home page underneath the group name/description, e.g.:

    http://mla.hcommons.org/groups/mla-commons-help/

    Private groups are currently a bit special because they are the default group type for MLA Committees, Divisions, and Discussion Groups. To leave these groups, you should log into your MLA member account at mla.org and remove yourself from the corresponding Division or Discussion Group. (It is not possible to remove yourself from an MLA Committee, for obvious reasons.) The next time you log in to the Commons, you should be removed from the corresponding Commons group. Note that this has not been extensively tested, so it is certainly possible that this functionality needs some work.

    Eventually our goal is to integrate MLA member accounts into the Commons such that you can join/leave Divisions and Discussion Groups directly from the Commons.

    Thanks for the response, Chris. A few days ago, I followed your instructions — logging into my MLA member account at mla.org and etc. — and made several changes to division and discussion group memberships. Unfortunately, those changes are not yet reflected on my group memberships here at MLA Commons.

    This is not an urgent issue for me. Just FYI.

    Thanks for the feedback, George. It’s on our development list.
