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

Group created.

As a reminder, all custom usergroups memberships require approval by the owner. Usergroup owners will receive a notification email that a member has requested membership. Then the owner will have to approve the request.

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


That makes me officially special O:)

I would like a discussion forum for the user group, "Former Christians". It should be called, "The Outer Darkness". Only Former Christians, Moderators and Administrators can post in this subforum. But all registered users should be allowed to read.

I will be posting a Sticky emphasizing that the forum is still part of the site and must adhere to the rules of civility and that while they cannot post, Christians and others will be allowed to read.

Name of usergroup: Confucian

Description: Followers of Master Kong seeking to perfect society through one's own behaviour and relationships, can be either religious or non-religious.

Fee: None, only requirements are a sincere interest in benevolence, rectitude, propriety, honesty and wisdom.
If I am capable of grasping God objectively, I do not believe, but precisely because I cannot do this I must believe.

Finally I have some power even at a high cost from my prized tokens.
I don’t know what to pick. I am going to need a consultant and get back with you.
Humanist is good even if it is so 60’s.
I like Radical Empiricist?
Agnostic Gnostic non-dualists?
I will have to get back I am going to see if I can join McCulloch’s group and sup-group.
PP has already excluded me with the egg laying and he seems very exclusive. PP do you lay eggs? Your mate?

Fee: Just your immortal soul.
If it is your souls and Immortal how can you give it up? Aren’t you stuck with it?
Where do I sign up?

I want to create "Radical Empiricists" and "Agnostic Gnostic Non-Dualists".
I also want to join the humanist and former Christians.
There goes my tokens.
Mine would be free too.

"Oh take me out coach I'm not ready to play....today."

But sign me up and make it so.
