Well, you all might have been a bit surprised logging in after today to see that the way your User Groups are displayed on the front page has changed a bit.
We're making some changes to the forum to help improve it, and one of them (at least, we hope it's an improvement!) is something that several people had asked us for earlier -- having all of your User Groups listed directly on the main page of the forum, instead of hiding in a sub-forum.
(We also moved the User Groups up the page, as we feel they're an important feature!)
The User Groups section will always only list the User Group forums that you're actually a part of... so the list shouldn't be too enormously long.
However, we know that it might sometimes be a pain to scroll past. Don't worry, however, because vBulletin already has a feature for that! You can 'minimize' or hide the User Groups forum (or any forum, in fact) at any time with the nifty little arrow shown on the right hand side of its header bar:
And when you do, the User Groups forum will hide itself like so:
Until you click the arrow again.
This'll make moving to the sub-forums below much easier if you have a lot of User Groups!
We hope that this makes it easier for you to access your User Groups, and more likely to get involved with them... but, as with all things, we'd very much like to hear your feedback, as we're always open to input from our users! Do you like this change? Are you comfortable with things this way? Or would you prefer it back the way it was?
We look forward to hearing your thoughts!
