Social groups for phpBB

Post by soraxroxas » Sat Sep 09, 2017 2:03 pm

I would like to see a function to create social groups, like facebook groups. Since i see that most populair forum systems are doing this.

I do not see this being a good idea for the phpbb core. If there are forums and subforums, why a social group? This would affect the general movement of the forums.

There are so many smaller and essential things for phpbb to deploy in your default code, the rest, cosmetic, can be done with extensions.

My opinion.
I'm sorry for my English. Google Translator does a bad job. :D

I've been on a few forums where groups have their own dynamic and sometimes own forum or flare or stuff like that. I like groups, they're relatively lightweight and add an additional dynamic that not everyone will need, but that's certainly used elsewhere.
I am a web developer/administrator, specializing in forums. If you have work you need done or are too lazy to do, pm me!
