I haven't seen anyone who's in one..... And how are they supposed to know anyway? You can't write it in anywhere....

Not only what it is, but how to get in them. Because there's nothing about them anywhere, so how the fuck could you even JOIN one?

How come you don't know, Mr. UnholyModerator? ;]

Anyway, I never even thought about it until someone mentioned it in another thread this morning. Now, I'm curious too.

I've never asked that before because I thought I was the only one who had no idea about that.


Whew....

See, admin. You have a whole fleet of people who don't know what a function is.

TheUnholyModerator is an awesome custom title.

No, it's not. It's the same as everything else.

How is TheUnholyModerator anything like Junior Member, Member, or Senior Member?

public groups are just permission groups that are never used. the vbulletin people coded it in and not a single vbulletin uses them.

they're just like the "mod" group or "admin" group, but i believe it's up to you if you join them or not. i'm not sure quite what permissions you'd give an optional group... but that's supposedly what it is.

It's basically a mini-forum, that requires membership and a password.

If groups were activated here, some people could get together and start, say, a sports group and it would simply be a forum for sports talk. You'd have to join and be given the password to read or post in it.

does that mean that the members dont use it (for whatever reasons, but especially because of lack of knowledge) or that the function is actually turned off?

It's turned off here.

From my own experience, only mods or admins could create groups, depending on their level of "security."
