    Lurking in the shadows
    I'm happy to announce that Social Groups have been upgraded as Roly promised. magneticat and his talented crew of coders have completed the upgrade and they are now (more) functional.


    Moderators: you may now add moderators to your Social Groups. A SG moderator may moderate posts approve new members and generally do anything the owner cane except transfer ownership of the group or delete the group. You add moderators by listing them in the moderators text box. You may do this at creation time or at any other time afterward. Only the owner can add moderators.

    3 group types:
    • Public: all can join immediately
    • Moderated: a SG moderator or owner must approve the members after they apply
    • Invite Only: no one may join unless they are invited by the SG Owner or a Moderator

    You may enable the option "Users must join to view the content" and your group will be Private.

    Create a Social Group:

    You may create a new Social group by going to the "Community" button then selecting groups. Click the "Create Group button"



    This is a default option social group:


    This is a "Private" social group:


    Your Social Group will not be created immediately, all Social Groups must be approved by the staff before they are created. Do not resubmit your group request just because your group was not created immediately.

    Please do not spam PMs to the staff over the creation of your social group, It will get accepted or rejected whenever an administrator is available to check it. You will receive an email from the forum with the approval ( or disapproval ) when the Group Request is screened.
