non selectable user groups from member control panel

Post by Ideas Bot » Thu Aug 30, 2018 12:20 am

Please add an option to hide non selectable user groups from member control panel.

Why let users see "This is a special group, special groups are managed by the board administrators." Why do I want this to be stated on my site?

Having those groups show, only clutters and fills our pages with unnecessary seeming selectable items which don't serve a purpose. We have a legend we don't need those groups listed just to know what color is what.

You should give us the option to show or not show these groups.
Having user groups that are not selectable only confuses my members.
They ask if I cant select it why does it look like I can, why is it there?

The way how it's now is because the listing is separated into
  • groups where you are the leader,
  • groups where you are a member,
  • groups where your application is still pending (you want to join but yet you aren't approved), and
  • groups where you're not a member.
The advantage of the current concept is: despite not being able to join a group you still have its link to list all members of said group. You can set up hidden groups, tho, which wouldn't be listed there unless you're a member/leader in those.

BTW: "member control panel" is a dangerous term - it may lead to the abbreviation MCP, but MCP is already the "Moderator Control Panel". Better stick to the original.
