    If you create a "group related event" on you facebook group you are usually given the option to invite the members of the group automatically. The option is still there but the group members are NOT being invited..

    Anyone else experiencing this right now or is it just me?

    This is not working for me either - it has been a week.

    I have a 5 different groups I use, ranging from 1200-3500 people.

    Each one can launch events, but will not invite it's host members to it - this is happening to a lot of people I know, all over the last week and a bit.

    Anyone know what's going on? Or have a workaround?

    This is happening to me too. Very annoying. Is there any way round this? I can't seem to invite friends to events either. I use select all code, fb says all the invites are sent out by they aren't being delivered. Any ideas?

    Yeah its messed up! My group has 3,200 people, facebook says the limit is 5000! So is there a new limit!?!?!? smaller groups are able to send invites, tried with my electronic music group that has 1,020 people and that worked. They need to fix this.

    it looks like facebook is crashing every time i create a group related event with the invite all checkbox checked..

    The page doesnt load and when i return to the group, it shows 2 or 3 of the same events posted with no people invited.. as if it crashed and tried to create another event

    I think the servers that usually send the invites are crashing

    im actually doing this for legitimate non blackhat purposes and its very annoying. How do you report a bug like this..

    frngdrn what part of the world are you doing this from? it could be that some servers are experiencing these crashes in one part of the world. Im in norther USA near canada & newyork..

    I'm based in the UK and it's still not working for me - I've reported it to Facebook multiple times and I've sent them screenshots to confirm and yet nothing gets done.

    Does anyone else think that they literally have the WORST support of any website?! Its ridiculous considering how many users they have.

    How are you reporting it to facebook, Share so we can all do the same and bring it to their attention with a wave of complaints

    i tested last night and it was working for me which is strange as it wasn't working for me a few days ago on a different group.

    i know invites definitely went out because i made a blank event called 'test' and i got people messaging me asking what 'test' was. i also received the invite on a fake account which is also member of the group.
