What are user groups for? Answered

I noticed taht there are user groups that I can join but I don't know what they are and what are there purpose. The only information I have is the group name and the person to contact if I want to join. But before joining any group I'd rather know the whys, the whats and hows. I don't want to join a group then quit it a few minutes later because it is not what I seek. So can someone give me some cues on this?

PS: I did used the search button to find information on this subject but my research weren't fruitful.

User groups are for teams, or groups of people that share the same interests.

if you don't belong to that team, you don't have any reason to join that group, simple as that.

Torn is right. But there are also larger administrative purposes.

User groups allow us admins to give certain individuals certain privilages. For example, once you've been verified as 18+, you get to be added to that usergroup, which allows you access to the Classified forums. The verifiers themselves have their own group which gives them access to discussion forums for that purpose.

On a very simplified basis, you are moved automatically from one usergroup to another after you verify your email address when you sign up, and that's what allows you to post, as opposed to having limited access prior to that.

Most usergroups you won't be able to join if you tried, simply because they are locked and invite/admin controlled only.

Ok, but for those that I see and that I can ask to join in, how can I get info on those groups to see if I am interested in their topics so that I can decide to join in or not, should I ask the admin of the group? Or is it preferable to wait and get invited into one?

les ceux que tu vois sont des sections pour des Teams - check les noms, ce sont des noms de teams de certain joueurs (ou des sections pour les admins/mods).

ca permet au team d'avoir un dboard sans avoir a installer un serveur web pis vBulletin ou whatever autre program, plus mysql, php etc...

si t'as un team pis tu veux une section, contacte HonestJohn.

pis comme qq.un a dit avant, si t'es pas dans le team t'as pas de raison d'etre la.

If you are referring to the 8ish groups listed in the User CP under group memberships, they are all private teams. I don't think the board has any public usergroups that are open membership.

Simple; if a team interests you, send a PM to one of the members. Or go to a game and meet them.

OK thanks all. I wanted to know before doing some stupid move.
