IDMf "groups" feature

So I really like that IDMf has groups but if I wasn't the super curious type I never would have found it. Also, nobody uses it. I really think they should move it to a more obvious place on the homepage, and make groups you're a part of an easier thing to find. Thoughts?

Honestly, yeah, I think you are right. That, or just get rid of them. I was always bummed when I saw a chance to post something useful and people hadn't posted in over a year or more, kind of made me think they were over it already.

I'm sure the reasons for doing/not doing on admin's side are there though.

Oh.. btw, the "groups" bar is towards the bottom, but it's pretty obvious. Just not flowing like the rest of things

Re: IDMf "groups" feature

Groups never really took off in any form. They turned out to be a really restricted and messy way of communicating something that could be done much more simply and reach a broader interest base for the topic by just making a thread.
The admins who can remove it don't have much time on their hands and tbh as it's become redundant it's kind of just left their from my own understanding

Well, you should get more mods then. Put the site out on Tumblr and Reddit and stuff. Everyone always says "not your personal army" but you uh, kinda are. You guys can do it just have someone kinda well known make a thread about it.

How is any of that relevant to the topic of groups (which don't really work, as benwaa said)?

Re: IDMf "groups" feature

Ben's nailed it. Users didn't embrace groups so they're just a nice little curiosity.

We kinda aren't. This community is pretty solid and is very good at self moderation. Users didn't pick up on the groups. We tried them out and they were a nice little curiosity. But, if anything, they took away from the experience we valued. Plus there are plenty of other places you can set up groups and there's nothing stopping you from utilising the IDMf groups.

Just don't expect to see any changes or development on the area. Unless of course, you'd like to contribute the cost for development.

Re: IDMf "groups" feature

It's been explained many times before, but essentially the groups were a hack/workaround of the PM system coding and as such never had nor can have the full functionality of the rest of the forum and from evidence don't really warrant it anyway.
