As some of you may have noticed, there is the possibility to create and join Social Groups - So far there are only four and I've created categories for them:

  • Meet ups & Get Togethers - Joining and meeting other members from specefic country/region.
  • Mouthpiece (brands) - social groups that discuss specefic brands of mouhtpieces
  • Saxophones (brands) - social groups that discuss specefic brands of saxophones.
  • and SOTW Culture - What makes SOTW unique, its members, culture, trends and SOTW pride.
    (*hint, hint* this is where belongs my social group --> kcp's Sax Cartoons Fan Club :D )

Anyway, if you create a social group that doesn't belong in any of these categories just put it in the "uncategorized" category and contact Administration to suggest a category - Thanks

I must be missing something. Isn't the social groups category redundant? Are people not discussing brands of mouthpieces, saxophones, SOTW and meet-ups already in the corresponding forums?

Yeah I see your point. Kind of like a mini forum inside this forum; a parralel universe - These social group thing are part of the vBulletin upgrade -I guess that we could always turn them off but we could at least give it a try and see what happens. I'm sure there are other interesting use that can be for these social groups. For instance, a gallery of saxophone pictures. Sure, you can post pictures anywhere in the forum but eventually other threads are created and the thread you posted your picture in goes down the list until it's far, far away and then one day you say "Hey where's that thread?" you go looking for it and it takes you hours :| At least, the social groups are always in the same place.

This said, discussing mpc, reeds and such in a social group might be redundant but my cartoons aren't :D

No, if you join a social group you get a free toaster and a years subscription to Better Homes and Garbage.

And they can be private too, right?

Depends. When creating a social group you have the option to make it public, moderated or invite only.

From what I gather, anyone even logged-off guests can view what's inside the social group. "Moderated" Only registered members can and hence the name "invite only", one must be invited in order to join/see the group.

"Private" doesn't keep the Mods out, tho. ;)

I'd like to form an Anti-Social Group. Anybody with me?:)
That's more my style. We can get together and talk about how horrible social groups are. :) Kind of like Hell's Angels getting together to complain about how everyone else dresses alike. Or the pots getting together to complain about how black the kettles are.

I've got a few ideas.

How about groups for:

political discussion
materials
Kenny G
smooth jazz
sexual innuendo/flirting
old farts
young innocent/naive
comparative religion

I reject the idea of not wanting to belong to an anti-social group that doesn't want me as a member.

As long as the anti-social group does'nt have any meetings that include me, I'll join.

Anybody bringing anything interesting to smoke?

Done deal. Consider yourself an anti-socialist. I don't have anything to smoke but I will bring some interesting brownies.
