Greetings Mods and Gods,

I was writing as to the creation of Public Groups. As you are all well aware, vBulletin is capable of Groups, and it is, in fact, noted in each of our public profiles. However, I have not been able to discover the ability to create a public group, which leads me to believe that they are not being used on this forum for a variety of reasons (of which I do not know any). However, I feel that in certain circumstances, the creation of groups would enhance our community rather than just become an nuisance. Consequently, MR sould begin using vBulletin's Public Group feature.

I am not suggesting general membership should have the ability to create these Groups, but rather that they are created on behalf of members, by Mods, after the subjet/topic has been approved. Therefore, I would like to petition for the creation of the first Public Group by a Mod/God. I have started a thread Wisconsin MacRumors Members (http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=79339&page=1&pp=25) and (as you can see) it is a rather large group of people, and it would be nice to have a group, instead of a thread whose lifespan is indefinite.

Thank you very much,

Michael R. Johnson

szark is correct - only arn can change a site setting such as this. PM him your request and see what he says.
