    I'm still getting the hang of the forum's new layout...all the new features, like friends and various personal message features and stuff...

    One thing I did see, that I thought was interesting, is that there's now the ability to create Social Groups. I realized that perhaps this could be used for the Group Builds in some way.

    It was just a thought, but I've noticed that when someone tosses an idea out there, everyone brain-storms and we end up with some pretty cool results :thumbright:

    Sounds like a good idea Dave. Maybe it could be used for diverting some themes, so as not to hijack individual threads. For example, if a particular 'conversatin' ensues within a thread, that's perhaps relevant but not pertinent, it could be moved to the Social Group by a poster saying something like 'See you over in the GB SG' or whatever.
    Pity it can't be a physica Social Group, where we could get to together on a regular basis for a few or more beers!
    Now that is something I'd do if I won the Lottery - tour around the countries of the World to visit forum friends!

    Speaking of everyone getting together. I will be in London for a bit the first week of June, if any of the Brits here who are close to London or in London want to get together for a Pint.

    I doubt I'll be able to make it Chris, but if things change, I'll sure let you know! Hope you have a good time during your visit.

    Wish I lived somewhere that everyone wanted to vist. New Joisey?!! sheesh!

    And Terry, I drink with my eyes closed. :)

    What is a Social Group and how does it relate to the forum? Is it another section that we go to or a forum within a forum?

    Hey NJ, look up in the navigation bar, you'll see a link called "Social Groups"...

    It allows you to create a group within the forums, kind of like FaceBook.

    Thought that might be handy for the GBs somehow...

    For instance, have a Group for each of the Group Builds (#1 DoR, #2 PTO, etc)
