Post subject: What Happened To My Usergroup Forum?

icon_question.gif What happened to my usergroup forum?
During our upgrade this weekend we merged the topics from all of the different regional user group forums into this forum. The main reason for doing this is we were able to drop several dozen forums from the board, and that helps improve performance. Many of the regional user groups had very few posts (less than 20 over three years in some cases) so it really was not worth the overhead to maintain separate forums.

It was also difficult to start new regional user group forums as we needed individual forum moderators, a sub-forum, and so on.

icon_question.gif How can I find my usergroup posts now?
Not to worry. icon_smile.gif You might have already noticed that most of the topics in this forum now have a [TOPIC LABEL] of some kind. This label does several things. First, it shows at a glance which user group would be interested in that topic. But there's more. There is a new feature called the Forum Filter that will let you filter topics that have a particular topic label so that you can see all of the topics for that usergroup on one (or two) pages, just like you did before.

To implement the forum filter, scroll to the bottom of the list of forum topics. There are actually two filters there. One can be used to limit how many days old the topic is, and the other can be used to limit which topic label you want to view. You may select one or the other of these filters in any combination. The paging values should adjust based on the topics that match your filters.

The filters are sorted in geographical order first, much like the old usergroup forums. Within each geographical area they are sorted alphabetically. We hope this will make them easy to find.

Here is a screen shot showing where this feature is. If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.

It is not enough for a handful of experts to attempt the solution of a problem, to solve it and then to apply it. The restriction of knowledge to an elite group destroys the spirit of society and leads to its intellectual impoverishment.

If I want to take over the St. Louis BOUG moderator/admin role, how do I do that?
