Default Social Forums installed

Seeing as how some social groups have become quite popular here, I've decided to install a new forum hack.
It's called social forums and it will give you the ability to create a forum for your social group. It's supposed to make the social groups feature easier to use aswell as make your group stand out more.


At the bottom of your groups page there will be a link named 'Create forum' (currently the link only shows up for groups with at least 10 members, I might change that if people want it).



There will simply be a forum created with the name of your group. It will be a subforum of the Social Groups Forum.
The forum will be fully connected to your group, which means that people who aren't group members will be unable to post.




You'll be able to create threads/posts like in every other forum, if you are a member of the group in question. The forum will contain a notice leading to the social group as you can see below.



The group itself won't change that much, but instead of discussions, the last 10 threads (I can change that number) from the group forum aswell as a link to the forum are displayed.




A few facts:
  • Creating a forum for your group is voluntary
  • The group leader will automatically become moderator of the forum (but not become part of the actual forum moderators group)
  • Additional people can be added as mods
  • Like already said, people who aren't group members will not be able to post in the forum
  • If the group is set to be moderated/invite only, the forums can not be seen by people who are not members (I have to admit I'm not the biggest fan of that setting)
  • alternatively I can change the forum permissions the way you like (for example allowing non-members to see thread names but not the content)
  • If you rename your group the forum will be renamed aswell

Now what happens to the discussions in the group? They will still be displayed but they can be converted to forum threads (I have to do that, just VM me). To prevent people from making any new disucssions if you only want them to use the forums you can disable discussions by clicking on 'Edit group' and unchecking the checkbox of 'Enable Messages'. You can enable/disable discussions at any time.
I will make sure to make a backup of the group table before running the converter.

I hope I've explained this well enough.
Note that I sometimes might make forum creation only avaible to staff which doesn't mean you can't have a forum for your group anymore but you've got to ask a staff member to create it for you.
The reason for this is to have better control of the groups situation.
I hope it's understandable but for now members are able to do it themselves.

Forum creation for members is turned off now. It's only temporary and will be turned on again soon.
You can still have a forum for your group, just ask a mod to create it for you.
