Your very own usergroup

Post #1

Post by otseng »

Now, you can have your very own usergroup. Post in this thread the name that you'd like. I'll make sure the name conforms to the standards of this site and deduct 2500 tokens from you. Then, you'll be the owner and member of that usergroup. By default, people will be able to freely join your group. Or you can choose to confirm membership requests.

To request your personal usergroup, provide the following:
- Name of usergroup (40 character limit)
- Description (255 character limit)
- Note if you want to confirm membership from others (default will be no)

For an additional charge of 10,000 tokens, you can also have your own subforum for your usergroup. Please provide the following info:
- Name of usergroup (40 character limit)
- Description (80 character limit)

Subforum activity requirement:
- Subforums must maintain some activity in it. Subforums that do not have any activity for six months can get removed (posts made to simply bump threads do not count). There will be no refunds given for any subforums removed.

Additional restrictions:
- Do not add people to your group without their permission. Otherwise I will delete your group.
- Descriptions cannot point to personal websites. If a link is found to point to inappropriate and/or offensive material, the group will be deleted.

1/3/2011 Modification:
- Changed group price from 500 to 1000 tokens
- Changed subforum price from 2000 to 5000 tokens

1/12/2013 Modification:
- Added subforum activity requirement

12/31/2016 Modification:
- Changed group price from 1000 to 2500 tokens
- Changed subforum price from 5000 to 10,000 tokens

Do you charge extra for a discussion forum for the usergroup?

That's a good idea. We can try that also. But, since it'll require more work and resources to have more subforums, there'll be a surcharge for that, perhaps another 1000 tokens?

McCulloch it looks like a scam to get our hard earned tokens.

Can I start the First Bank of Debating Christianity and Religion? We could have savings accounts, offer loans, currency conversion, etc. ;)

Well, I've been wondering for awhile on exactly what people could do with the tokens (except just hoard them under the mattress). Originally I was thinking of installing the store mod. But, after waiting a long time for it, it was eventually abandoned. :(

Sure. If you write the software for it, I'll only charge 1000 tokens to install it here. ;)

PP: What would be the point of having a group with only one member? Are there other Monotremes here?
