Impossible to play LittleBigPlanet 3 online?

I've tried and tried and tried again and again and again, but for some reason I just legitimately can not join anybody (or have anybody join me) online. I can have someone else in my house play with me, but as far as online, having random people join me or joining them is impossible.

I select a level and choose to join others, and half the time the time it just times out. The other half is when someone actually allows me to join and I get the invite, but when I use it to join them it just tells me that I "Failed to join." I also occasionally select to join others and I'd instantly get put into a loading screen and then dropped back into my pod, with the message "Failed to connect to player." My map is also flat when this happens, even though I'm not even on the pod controller, although that fixes once I go to the map myself.

As for others joining me, I occasionally get a request for somebody to join me, and when I accept, it takes about 20 seconds or so, but I get some message about the person failing to join.

This is particularly annoying because I don't have 4 controllers, but I really need other players to help me out with the 4-player level in Manglewood.

Please fix this if it's a bug, or help me fix it if it's on my end.

I can join, or have others join me.........BUT the level does not show complete after completing it. I did 4 levels with others yesterday and today they appear unfinished and I can not go to them. So frustrating!!!!!!!! Two of the people are on my friend list, two are not so that makes no difference.

connecting to other players is a lot less stable this time around.. it takes a pretty good internet connection to pull it off

I found out the hard way, that to connect to someone online, THEY MUST BE ADDED AS A FRIEND.

If they're not a friend, it'll say that you lose connection or some error. If you get an invite, add the person before attempting to join or it won't work.

I don't know about multiple people, I've only done it with one other person, but from what I know and what I've heard, I'm going to assume that you either have to be friends with the host (if you join), or friends with everybody else in the group for it to save.

That's just my guess, I haven't been able to test it, and I won't have a chance to for at least a week, vacations and all that. Somebody else test it out and talk about what you experience. Sure, Sumo needs to fix their game, but for the time being, we might as well find out how we can get around it and help others do the same.

I've joined a few random people playing story levels. I happen to have a very good internet connection though.

I have good internet, but it still never lets me join others except friends.

Maybe it's different for everyone, then?
This gets more and more confusing with every person who states what they can and can't do.
