    We're pleased to announce our newest feature, TrainBoard Groups.

    What are TrainBoard Groups?

    They are similar to Yahoo Groups or any other social networking site where users can create and manage their own groups.

    Unlike a forum, they don't have seperate threads but they do have ongoing discussions, photo uploading, etc.

    This will be a great way to gauge support for new forums, or allow people to have their own niche group here at TrainBoard.

    If you have questions, please ask.

    Love the new features, just one question. How do I access the Groups from the main forum page? I have been getting to it from your email announcement.
    Thanks for making an awesome site even better!

    Thom-

    In the dark gray bar, above this Forum, where you see "My TrainBoard", "Blogs", etc, click on "Quick Links." It's in the menu there.

    I created a group... at least, I think I did. I clicked "Save," but it hasn't shown up.

    Also, what exactly do the different types of groups mean? I can figure out "Invite Only", but what's the difference between that, "Public" and "Moderated"?

    What's the name of your Group?

    I'd say that "Public" means open posting. "Moderated" means you look at and approve posts.

    I can see it too, now. Strange...?

    EDIT: But only from directly linking to it. It doesn't show up on the main list of groups.

    Bumping this topic back as I have heard from several people that they were not aware of this new feature.

    I started a logging themed group called "Logging Operations Fans and Modelers." I am hoping to have some company soon. Meanwhile, I will try and post links and other items of interest.
