    Say I'm having a conversation with someone, how would invite somebody else to join in?

    Thanks

    As long as you can invite more members, there is an "Invite More" link in the side bar of each conversation under the participants.

    It also should be noted that only the original sender can invite more participants.

    Not always, they can't.

    Ah, I just noticed that, kind of not very obvious.

    However as a admin or mod, surely I should be able to invite more participants or forward the message whether or not the sender invited anyone else. No?

    As long as you have granted yourself the "Always invite participants to conversations" permission you can.

    You are always able to "forward" messages via quoting it.

    No? I thought they always could.

    If they have reached the maximum amount of conversation participants they can't.

    Oh, well, yeah, of course.

    I was talking more in terms of that only the sender can invite participants. Participants that were invited can't invite participants.

    They can if they have the relevant permission.

    That is also false. As long as the sender has checked the "Allow anyone in the conversation to invite others" option when creating the conversation, anyone will be able to invite others (as long as they can have more participants than what is currently invited). Whether they were in the initial conversation or added (invited) post-creation.

    And I knew about that option, too. I feel stupid now.

    Thanks, guys!
