Groups allow people to join together over a similar interest. Each group contains a discussion forum and rooms for members to socialize.
Select the groups tab and click the 'make your own group!' link above the group lists. Fill in the options as you desire and select the create group button. The name of your group must be unique and not have been taken or used previously. Creating a group costs 30,000 Coins.
To join a group click on the Groups tab in the header. You will see a list of groups, and from there you are able to choose to join one of your choice.
Some groups are invitation only. It is impossible to join them without having been invited by a manager.
Viewing Joined Groups
To see a list of the groups you have joined, click on your Groups tab, and then on "My Groups".
To join a group chat you may press on the chat options button to the left of your chat input at the bottom of the screen. When a popup appears, simply mouse over your list of groups and select which group you'd like to chat with in order to enter the chat.
Group Managers have the ability to, as their title implies, manage groups. They can be appointed by any existing manager of the group, including the founder.
Group Managers can:
- Edit group rooms as if they were their own
- Remove members from group
- Promote other members to manager status
- Demote managers other than the founder of the group
- Edit the group's charter
- Delete discussion posts
- Mark discussions as announcements
- Pin discussion threads
- Lock discussion threads
- Adjust room privacy
- Change users/managers shares in sold items
It is inadvisable to promote someone who you do not trust to manager status.
