    2016 has been a year of great change for ID.

    One area I am beginning to take focus on is our Groups section.

    I feel it is time for a complete reconsider of this.


    What I am looking for is feedback. Give it to me streight up.

    Your thoughts please.

    Thank you.

    Groups | Ignorance Denied

    We are considering changes here, any input is welcomed.

    Currently groups are a subset of the forums that some members have made. Feel free to explore them and please come back here with your thoughts.

    This is what I am considering...

    The groups functionality doesnt suit me. It seems cumbersome and confusing.

    I am considering migrating all the group discussions, pictures, and threads into their own forums that would be located insude the Off Topic category on forum home page. And then disabling the groups pending a clear use for them.

    I am feeling this will make the group subjects more available to members and unitize functionality to forum standards.

    Still wanting feedback.

    You will begin to notice some changes. Over the next week or so, I will be slowly migrating some of the groups over to the new Off-Topic forums.

    No more click to join. No more confusion over how groups operate. No more fuss-n-muss.

    Although I will be disabling groups when I am done, they may return later, albiet in a different format.

    For those members that have created their own groups and still want to run them, we can arrange moderator agreements for you where they will now exist.

    This will take awhile so be patient. The Fenn group will be the last one to be migrated as it will be the most complicated.

    Use em till I move em.


    Final note, discussions in groups will have to be manually migrated. I will migrate them to threads format. The content and poster will remain the same, but the dates of posting may change. I cannot help that. But continuity will remain.

    Any questions, please ask.

    Yes I was in some thread
    Layaly made me a coffee club post. But I couldn't see the pictures then I joined the group, and then I wondered is there some point to this?
    And there could be a point to groups, but at the moment they are just sub forums.. I'll think on a purpose for their possible return.
    Who knows when a stroke of genius might hit. For now you have the right idea.

    When I first saw there were groups I got excited.. ohh what's this?! I'm sure there is something there.

    I wanted to say and I guess this is a fine time to say it, I really like this place. I'll have to spread my wings and explore a bit, but so far I love how functional everything is. Things just seem to do what I want them to do without me reading any tutorials haha.

    :thumbsup:

    Changes will be coming to Member Groups soon.
    Expect them to occur over the next week or so.
    Use them as they are and I will finalize any changes as they occur.

    I will be taking care of all of them over the next week.

    My goal is to better integrate and simplify usage of all parts of the site.
    And groups haven't been very manageable and are cumbersome to use.

    All posts will be preserved of course.
