Because it's the "wrapper" of Social Groups that we find appealing; the Group Info, Forum, Pictures, Media, Calendar are all great marketing tools for vendor-based forums (really turns it into a "one stop shop,") but we've had both members and a few vendors tell us they don't like "forcing" members to join the group (something about freedom of choice, blah blah lol.) I'm actually 100% with you, I think it's a two mouse clicks and helps the whole package "make sense" especially with a stat block that shows off total members joined; but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask on their behalf. I can see the merit of why it exists that way, we just didn't know if there was an option to override or turn it off.

I take it that it's simply not an available option period then? Out of morbid curiosity, do you offer custom requests or coding?

I appreciate that, thank you to the both of you for the work you've put into these add-ons!

Is there any way to lock group owners from interacting with other groups ...?

We've noticed a group owner from Group A can, when trying to move a thread, move that thread to any other group and it displays all other groups and their subforums as options. We could just turn the move thread option off, but we'd prefer to just have them only able to move threads within their own group space and only see their own group space. It's kind of weird if everyone can see all the forums and subforums and move stuff into them even if they aren't a member, much less mod, of that group.

We have quite a few self-contained groups and it's very annoying to users to have some 20 groups with 3-8 subforums each to weed through to move things around even if they weren't allowed to. :D

There is no option for that. The reason is that group owners must have the ability to move threads out of their group if they belong in another area.

If you are having problems with group owners moving threads randomly into different groups, that would be a disciplinary problem you need to deal with on your site. Or place better restrictions on who can create a group.

Eh, that's fine, I suppose we'll just remove the ability. That's not the capacity we're using groups for, so in our case, not really. We're using groups as self-contained mini-forums for sets of games, essentially, in which the owners/mods need to have the ability to moderate and move things around within their space but not be allowed to see or interact with other spaces.

Groups is a fantastic addon and much better than the alternative of creating individual subforums because members are allowed to start up to two games each for themselves, but they're not (nor should they be) in any position to interact with other groups in any moderation capacity (including moving things to their groups). Any rule-breaking posts, improper content, etc, is meant to be handled by our higher site-wide mods.

(Not that it really matters, I suppose, I just thought you might be interested in knowing different use case scenarios for your product. :D)
