Problems with deleting groups!
Join to comment
 Group admin 
Quoting Darth Legor
Houston i've got a problem, i want to delete a group where i'm the group admin and there aren't other members, but when i get the link to delete the group the new page crashes and i see only a white page.


Well, we can't actually delete groups. But what you CAN do is simply demote yourself from the admin posistion to a regular member and then leave the group. It won't close the group out but it will get you out of it.

Oh, and if you want to take it a step further so that no one else joins it, make the group "join by invite only" and since there's no admins to approve...

If that doesn't work let us know and we'll look into it.

By the way, can you guys (or anyone) delete topics? And if not, why not?

Nope and I don't know. I've brought it up to Sean before but I guess it's a lot of work to change the code? (just a guess)

For right now the best you can do is delete all the comments and lock the thread.

Yeah... it just gets very cluttered, you know? With all the pointless 'Hey, do you guys... oops, nevermind!' and 'Funchgat77 - ah, sorry, I made a mistake!' etc, etc...

Anyway.

We've had some conversations about eventual improvements to the group section. The formula you see here is basically still the first version since the whole "group" thing was created. And of course, like most first-tries, there are strengths and weaknesses to the design.

For now Sean's got his hands full with higher priorities for the site, but perhaps eventually he'll make some adjustments for better functionality within the groups. :)

Yeah. Another question: when you press 'reply', how come sometimes it shows 'Quoting athanasios quoting mark kelso quoting athanasios quoting mark kelso' and other times it shows quoting mark kelso' without the rest of the conversation?

Not really important, just wondering.

I've wondered that too.
