Waiting for WoW Classic, quit the original WoW after 9 years...Game has turned into a big massive disaster...
But can't wait to go back to the old days, WoW as it started and how it is supposed to be played...:)

Yeah the WoW classic already started, they were once again months behind anarchy online with the progression server.

How about a group for changing the world/community for the better, using our shared skill sets, a bit like Anonymous, though I can only offer construction related services, loyal enthusiasm and the occasional sheckle.

Hi all,

I'm about ready to launch the Social Group section of the forum that will re-resurrect the old Meister Clubs. Old timers may remember these - discussions about healthy recipes, Canuck Corner, our pets, kids, beer, really anything not dealing with the main forum topics. Each social group will have it's own forum - either private or public. It's a bit like the Attic on steroids. :p

Experienced members and above will be able to create Social groups. Senior members and above will be able to create private groups (not to be used to troll folks or create mayhem). Full members and above will be able to join groups.

I am looking at this to supplement the off topic interests that we all have (me = photography and obscure movies), and to keep you away from Facebook :p

That saying, are there any Social Groups you would like to see right away? I can add these for when I finish up setting everything up. :thumbsup:

Please let me know what you'd like to see. Serious responses only. :D
Sounds good, from my perspective, I would like to understand the Casino software and what is configurable, the use of AI in tracking player movement, I find it curious that there is strict policy for players and using AI, when the casino's are doing exactly that. AI - being artificial intelligence. AI has one particular perspective, it gathers everything and filters nothing, opposite to how the human brain works.

The other area I would enjoy, anything about food, cooking it, growing it, etc

Or the fine wines we enjoy while playing online games...

Social Groups? Can we have an Antisocial Group? For embittered Bonanza players, people who have spent more than 15 minutes listening to bloody Greensleeves when calling a company and who generally hate the world? :laugh:

Probably a fair few of these already have threads and info could be imported over; our fur babies, political rants (Brexit/Trump..oops, sorry N. Korea), What I'm currently listening to, TV 2019, Strictly Movies etc...maybe some of the more mundane ones could be 'public' by default, rather than creating a whole whack of clones

So have at it. Please don't go ape-shit :D

A Q? I understand private, needs approval, and restricted...but why hidden group? Isn't that just rather inviting things like member bashing, aff links, rouge sites, shady tips and shit etc
Also, can all mods see all groups and content regardless of restrictions?
No bashing - no aff links. The forum rules still pertain to these groups. If folks are using these to talk trash about others, they will be shut down. Private means hidden from view - but you as a group creator can modify this.

I think admins can access the private groups - perhaps. I have been testing this on a test server and didn't get that far since I am the admin, and the creator of the groups. :p I will let you know.

Click the "Groups" in the nav bar. If you have permissions to create you'll be able to do so. :)

I am doing all of this at close of business at the moment lol. I will be at it tomorrow and will add some more groups - especially photography. I have a load of astro photographs that would be fun to share. :D

Yes, this will make some of the Attic a bit redundant, but that is good. The groups can be organized in such a way that it's not some long ass thread. :D
