For instance, I have a basic account and I have been put as an officer for some group-owned land. Will the group automatically charge *ME* for the land use fees?

Thanks =]

No...

To have the land deeded to group, one of the members has to donate tier. If they remove the tier, the land will be released to the Lindens I believe.. You won't be charged..

There is one thing to keep in mind Kujila.

If the group land has any dwell income it will be divided between all group members.

On the other hand, if an officer in the group decides to list the land in the find directory,
there is a group liability of L$30 a week for each listing that will also be divided between all group members.

And I think putting it in classified (or something like that) costs the group members more.

Well here's the deal:

Person A made a group.

Person A made Person B an officer in the group.

Person A Canceled his SL account a while back (nobody knows why)

Person B buys land.

Person B makes ME an officer in the group.

Person B is being transferred to the teen grid.

So now what? I don't want to pay tier things... I don't even have a premium account =[

With persons A & B gone do you still have an interest in this group?
If not, then you should just leave the group.

The bottom line is, you only pay for land/tier that YOU have authorized LL to charge you for.
If you don't have any fees now and did not allocate any land to the group's use, the most that can happen is the group will lose the land if it was allotcated by an officer/member leaving the group.

Kujila, you won't automatically inherit any of the group's land liability. If the person who was contributing land to the group leaves, and you don't *decide* to contribute land to the group, the group's land will eventually go away, go public or go to auction. The only possible debit you can be liable for is, as previous posters said, if the group's land is listed, which is L$30 a week. But that's the worst case scenario.

Check the group's "Land" Tab for land contributions and useage; check the land's (if there is any) properties to see if it's being listed in Find Places. Uncheck the listing if it's checked.

You can keep the group if you want, but if it falls to under three members, it will automatically disband.

Classifieds is charged directly to the person who submits the add I think.. L$30 a week should be the extent of the fees you're able to be charged, and that should be split between group officers/members.. ;)

I've been losing some L to my main group, but it's no biggie (500L goes a long way, baby).
