I agree

I'm starting work on the "Groups" feature. Any requests?

Got lucky and got to check right after two o'clock!  Has generic name for now since I'm typing on a dying phone but might spice it up later today.

Since the groups feature has been implemented I have noticed that much of the forum activity is now group related.  The problem that I have with this is that if I have something to add to a discussion I need to join the group.  I do not intend to join every group when I feel I  can add input so I just move on.  Anyone else feel the same way?

Yeah I feel the same… I think an easy solution would be making the forums in public groups open to posts from everyone. Thoughts?

That would work Salvatore.  I noticed in a post from you the other day that you had to join the group iot reply.  Pretty bad when the site   owner has to join.

My question is: Do we really need groups to talk to each other?
There are so many now and I think it will get more complicated for everyone to follow all this input.

Alright, I just changed it so that everybody can post in a non-moderated public group even if they're not members.

Groups seem to have sparkled more conversation, so I think it's a positive thing. If the amount of data gets too much, I can always find ways to reduce it (i.e. only seeing posts from joined groups by default, with an optional button to see them all)

One thing I didn't realize enough is if someone is looking  for a specific problem or information it is easier to check
the questions and statements of an appropriate group instead of reading all not sorted entries.
That is of course a benefit of specialized groups.
