Question about finding Social Groups

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Is there a simple way to find the Social Groups?

I belong to one group and have it bookmarked. I can't even remember all the steps it took me to get there in the first place. I don't see any direct link in the forum drop-down list. It doesn't show up in my User Control Panel. If I go to a message I've posted previously and click on my own avatar, there is a link in my Public Profile. However, I don't see it in my profile when I click on Edit Profile in the CP.

I also do not get any notification when there is a new post in the Social Group, and don't see any place to turn on this option.

It seems like the Social Groups would be used a lot more if they were easier to find.

On the Quick Links menu, select My Profile. Social Groups are the last box on the right at the bottom.

Okay, thanks. Now how do I direct others who have not joined the group to find it? So far I've added a direct link in a post, but that only works for those who read that specific message.

Is there any way people who are just browsing through the forums can locate the Social Groups? I came across that area almost by accident, probably when I checked my profile at some point, but don't really remember now.

You can click on the link about members and invite people to it

I clicked on the link and it looks like a can only invite specific members. That's assuming that I know who would be interested.

I just thought it would be nice to have a visible link, something like the forums and sub-forums. It appears that Social Groups is a fairly new feature on TCS since all of the current ones were created in the last few months and none has more than 6 members. They just aren't advertised very much.

I stumbled across them at some point, probably when I was checking my own profile. How many people actually look at their own profiles?

I look at mine all the time, because I don't subscribe to posts and click on all posts by me on my profile link
