We have created a Google+ community to train a group of student leaders. However, the person who set the community up set it up as private & now we have are having difficulty getting our students to access the community. Is there a way to change the setting of a community from private to public?

You need to give them invitations. Or set the community to be visible to search results and ask the people to request access.

Can a moderator remove a owner from their own community? I know this is possible on Facebook and some creators are kicked out of their own group out of spite.

Moderators in Facebook Groups cannot remove the group owner. Only Administrators in the Group can do this.

I was recently promoted to promoter in a couple of communities, but I'm not sure what that entails. Can someone guide me to a description of the role of a moderator?

How to post to a community as a page?

I'm manager of the WatchMaker page and also owner of the WatchMaker community. I know how to post as the page to the community on PC, but I just can't figure out how to switch from my private profile to the page to post as such on Android. Doing a moderator job from Android is hard enough due to the limitations the app has. Is this anther one? Is it at all possible to post to a community as a page on mobile?

Any input would be greatly appreciated.

May the Plus be with you,
+Jens Graikowski​

I have not tried with pages, but I run three different profiles simultaneously on android. I guess you do the same way. In the setting on your device, choose accounts, add account. Follow the steps for logging in and how you want it to be updated.

When done first time you switch within the app from the pulldown menu on top where your profile name is

I help out with an ongoing weekly photo theme. Usually 8-10 sometimes 15-20 people post pix. We are considering a page or community and a snappier hashtag and name.
Suggestions ? 
Is one better than the other - maybe both ? Who's using collections for this kind of stuff ? Etc...

Thanks JRE. Response like this is exactly why I broached the subject here. You sir, have singlehandedly managed to get me thinking instead of just wishing. Yay you !
Seriously though - thanks bunches.

I've joined the community, but I don't really know how to become a moderator. Am I elected by the community/other moderators, do I promote myself, what?

I have noticed that Google doesn't give the information about which moderator banned a person or which moderator edited the community. Is there a way to find this info? It is almost like Google is trying to fuel arguments by not allowing community members and or moderators know this information.

Second question. I have 18 members (including myself) that I can see, but the number showen under the "community" profile says there are 19 in the group. I am the only owner/moderator. How can there be a mystery person?

I have seen the number differ when you look with the phone app and with desktop. Earlier versions of the app showed members who had left as "+ two others" it may have changed in later versions

Hi,
I had joined a few communities and yesterday I had posted for the first time in a community. Then I had deleted my post and when I posted again in the same community, my posts are not visible to others. Even when I post in other Communities, my posts are still not visible to my friends but I can view them. They are public communities.
What do I do now?

Yes, they may not appear because they are not in your circle as +John R. Ellis​ said. And it may well be a community without mods taking responsibility

Can someone advise whether a Google+ group can actually charge people to join its community?
I run an another group & a number of the members left another group due to these newly imposed charges.
I'm interested to know whether Google+ actually permits this.
The group I run is NOT the group charging, & I certainly do not believe it's right to charge & interested to know Google+ rules on this.
Thanks.

Is there any way to customize the google plus community url link? (more details on Quora) 

I would prefer it if you answered directly on Quora, but I will appreciate an answer no matter where you choose to post it.

Or use a customised bitly.com link?

URL's - I have recently set up a new community Tree Change Tasmania.  I want to share the URL on other sites, ie facebook, linkedin, but I cannot find the URL.  The tab shows a long list of numbers but I don't seem to be able to copy this.  Is it me?  Is the URL listed anywhere under the settings and I just cannot find it?  Thanks

Click on "See all" - Membership for any community.  Then click the pull down menu next to "Members" and click Moderators.  This will show all the Owners and Moderators, but what they do and how they do it is secret.

How do you move posts to a different category? I'm a new mod for one of my communities and I need to know the ins and outs.

If you have a private community. When you specifically invite a Google+ user, does that individual still have to "Ask to Join" (await moderator/owner's approval)

No, anyone on the Invited list simply accepts or declines the invitation.

Hi +thecoder101. People might post things in a private community purely because they know it is private. In fact, they might only choose to join the community because it is private. Allowing a community to be changed from private to public would create an extremely serious privacy issue. The only way Google could avoid the privacy issue would be to require every single member of a community to have to approve changing it from private to public -- which would be unrealistic in anything but an extremely small community, or for Google to delete all content from the community and remove all members before flipping the switch to make it public. There is no need to develop code to do the latter, however, because that would effectively be the same thing as creating a new community.

Hello,
Lots of posts that aren't removed isn't visible in a community.These posts aren't marked as spam .Its not just my post , but all of the posts before May 3 are not visible (except for 1 or 2 posts from random dates like April 20 , Feb , Dec ..)The community was created on April 2013 , so as you can see , we have lost too many posts T_T.I had asked another mod , and he said that he is facing the same problem.
What should I do ? (I need those lost posts to announce the result of a community event)
