There is something called, Group Membership. What does it mean?

Where in your profile exactly? I don't see anything like that...

vBulletin has a feature called groups, where sections of forums can be set off that have their own moderators who control who is allowed in.
In some forums, it might set apart non-family-friendly portions of the forum, in others it might just be different cliques.

Do you mind dumbing it down a little bit for me please?

Ok, I see it now. Thanks.

As far as how it works, I could create a "magazine editors group" and only allow them access to the magazine boards. Which I'm off to do now that I know what it is LOL!

So, Tom and Sirdarksol and the rest of us working on the magazine will have a group listed in that section of our profiles now. At least, that's how I understand it at the moment. Off to test it!

That sounds right. I'm not actually part of groups on other forums, I have just seen them.

Ok, what Sirdarksol said originally is exactly what it is. If we wanted to create PUBLIC joinable user groups we could. I'm not sure I want that here as I don't see the benefits of something like that... However, I did create a new secondary usergroup called "Magazine Editors" for everyone that helps on the magazine.

Sirdarksol and Tom - do you guys still see the magazine boards on the forum home page such as October Issue, November Issue, etc? And can you navigate into those boards?

I see the section that tells the board that the magazine has been released, but not the one where we're working on the magazine.

Ok, cool thanks. Unless you're a moderator or magazine editor, you can't see those boards now.

But now I can see the mod board. I don't think I'm supposed too, am I? I don't think I'm a mod, I don't feel like a mod.
