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

description:
The meaning of this group is both literal and metaphoric. To belong, you must declare that you do not believe in any of the modern manifestations of Santa Claus along with the magic and supernatural powers frequently associated with him, flying sleighs, unexplained knowledge of good and bad etc. Belief in the existence of an ordinary man, Nicholas, who may have been the source of the myth is allowed.
By requesting membership in this group, you are also declaring that you do believe that the current practice of deceiving children into literal belief in Santa Claus is a bad thing. And, in general, you believe that it is wrong to encourage belief in things you know to be untrue.

how much you're going to charge people to join: No charge
There seems to be a limit on the length of the description. ):

Looking at the database, there's a limit of 255 chars for description. Could you revise your description?

I'd like two groups :

Name : Transhumanists
Description : Humanity will be radically changed by technology in the future. We foresee the feasibility of redesigning the human condition. This is for anyone that agrees with that and the rest of The Transhumanist Declaration.

Name : Hominidae
Description : This group, also know as the Great Apes, includes humans, chimpanzees, gorillas, orangutans, and all of our extinct ancestors. It generally applies to anything that shares 97% of their DNA with humans. All membership requires is acceptance of that.

If you can't fit the link in, or it won't go in, just remove the link part and leave the text please.
  • You are free to do what you want, but you are not free to want what you want.

Could I have another group?

Name : Freethinkers
Description : Freethought is a philosophical doctrine that holds that beliefs should be formed on the basis of science and logical principles and not be comprised by authority, tradition or any other dogmatic or other belief system that restricts logical reasoning.
