    I might be missing something (honest, I'm not terribly familiar with all the features of .Mac groups) but wouldn't it be redundant to setup a info sharing page via .Mac for a set of people who know each through an existing message board?

    yes it probably would be, but it is an easy way to share pics and other stuff similar to that...I think I just got excited about the whole .Mac Groups thing and kind of over reacted :(

    Yeah, that is one thing. MR's attachment size limits wouldn't be an issue in a .Mac group. However, MR has like 20,000 users or something insane. It would be difficult to manage and that 1 GB would fill up mighty fast. Might be a good idea for small groups of MR members (small clicks) wanting to share photos or movies.

    jsw has set one up – apparently a place for us all to meet up and fret if Macrumors ever goes down... :)

    I snagged it... just to keep shady characters from getting it.

    Might be useful during MWSF or WWDC when MR is essentially shut down. For now, though, I just wanted to keep the name safe.

    Groups are limited to 999 members right now. Oh, and you can't add storage to it, at least not yet anyway. I read this on Apple's .mac groups faq.

    I don't really get it...

    I don't find this useful at all. I mean most of the people I know are PC users. I don't see why you should have to sign up for a .Mac account. Anyways I find this completely useless! I do however like the updated storage.
