"Groups" Forums - can they be organized?

What I mean is, right now, all forum groups that have been made into forums are 'catagorized' in DVD Bargains.

There's a horror group, a Blu-Ray group, and an XBox 360 group.

However, none fit into DVD Bargains.

It would be nice for members if the XBox one was under Video Game Talk, the Horror one was under Movie Talk, and the Blu-Ray one was in HD Discussions.

Just wondering if it can be done.

Yeah, this also sux because all the subforums push the main content of the bargains down off the first page. This could get really ridiculous if more subforums are added.

Social groups created by Premium members. Once the membership hits X amount of members then it can be changed into an actual sub-forum. At least I think that's how it's done.
Someone correct me if my explanation is incorrect.

ok so it is a bit odd that they are in the bargains forum not the premium forum.
oh, is there instructions?

well i was able to find the area that contains all these new forums.

odd that some of them were created 2 months ago?

Move the social groups to their own main branch or something, and for the love of god put it at the bottom!

It's all going to get out of hand fast...

I do know you can choose to make the newly created forums private or public.

If it does then pay the $10 for premium membership and then you can ignore entire forums.

I'm sure it will be fixed soon.

How do you make a group forum? Does the creator of the group have to do it?

I'm pretty sure that option only appears for the group creator.

Yeah, they need to make it so you can only see them if you want to, and push them down to the premium section.

I'm drawing this to the attention of IB but would ask for forbearance over the holiday period when staff are thin on the ground.

Thanks for the forbearance! There is now a forum called "Group Forums" where these will all go when they're created.

So I can currently visit these groups and read all the comments in a particular thread...I just can't post in a thread (until I become a premium member). Guess if I'm interested enough, I'll just start a new thread in the regular forum.
