Community Usergroup

Not all members of the forum want to be involved in the discussions we've been having these last couple of weeks. We could argue that they simply shouldn't read the posts, but sometimes that's easier said than done. Usergroups offer us an eligible solution to this problem.

We've created a "Community members" usergroup. This is an open usergroup. This means every registered user of this forum is allowed to join/leave whenever he/she wants to. Once an user joins the "Community members" usergroup he'll will have access to the "Community" category of this forum. This is where we discuss all the boring little details nobody wants to know.

What does this usergroup bring us? Firstly, it will hide all the discussions about the forum from the public by default. Separating the fun hobby part from the technical/boring discussions. Secondly, it will eventually create a group of people who are able to make decisions efficiently and with stealth without bothering the other 90% of the forum.

How to join/leave?

Every registered user of this forum has access to his own personal "User Control Panel" located at the top-left menu. Within this "User Control Panel" users can navigate to the "Usergroups" menu. There you will see the available usergroups. The type of usergroup will determine whether or not you're able to join. Select the usergroup you want to join - in this case the "Community members" usergroup - select the action "Join selected" from the dropdown listbox at the right-bottom of the screen and select submit. Now you'll see the "Forums Discussions" forum located under the "Community" category. When you're fed up with the group, repeat the process above and select "Resign selected" instead and you'll unsubscribe the usergroup.

Re: Usergroup try-out and suggestion

Very good idea, your post (or another one locked so that nobody replies) needs to be pinned and shown on each forum so that nobody can argue that he didn't saw it !

Re: Usergroup try-out and suggestion

Thank you Treps, the thread is now global. Please suggest which threads should be considered for moving to the "Forums Discussions" forum. I suggest to move the "Forum Information" thread.

Re: Usergroup try-out and suggestion

I moved some threads from the "Announcements" and "General Discussions" forum to the "Community members" section. Among these include the more recently posted "I want to be mod/admin" threads. Subscribe to the "Community members" usergroup if you want to keep following these threads.

Re: Usergroup try-out and suggestion

This seems a very simple solution.
Now the vast majority that just want to come here to relax and talk about old games and old minis can do so in peace.

Pretty certain they're a spambot, just using this account to test access to the forum.
