Group Invites not working

yzjhhwsk18 says:

Hello. I created a private group for a memorial collection and sent invites that nobody is receiving. I followed the invite link from the group and tried both options for them to sign up and also sent invites after they have signed up by selecting them from the list and inviting to group.
The invites list also does not show anybody invited. Although one member said that he can see the pictures from the app that he just downloaded but not from the webpage and has still not received the invie.
Please advise.
Thank you

Could this be a restriction on your brand new account?

Hello,
I appreciate the response and the confirmation that it's because my account is new. but I cannot find anything that tells me about this or for how long. I am trying to do a memorial and am running out of time.
How long does this new account restriction last? Thanks

Flickr doesn't reveal the details of the anti-spam deterrents because that will give the spammers clues how to circumvent them and make the deterrents useless.

Ok, then here is a suggestion. If the invites don't go anywhere during this period, how about removing the response that says "The invitation has been sent to..." with the name below. I'm out.

I am having an invite problem too but the problem is my list of groups i can invite people to doesn't show up so they may be having a problem with their invite to groups in general.
