Welcome to group creation 101. You will learn how to create a group, along with moderation and administration along with tips for keeping a healthy, active population! I. [b][u]Group Creation[/b][/u] To create a group, click up at the top of the page on the link that says "my groups". On the page you bring up there is an option to create a group, click there to begin. WARNING: [b]you aren't allowed to create a group until you have been an active community member for 14 days![/b] II. [b][u]Setting Up Your Group[/b][/u] Now that you have chosen to create you group its time for some creation. Your are first on a page that explains the basics, your group cannot violate any rules in the bungie.net [url=http://www.bungie.net/help/code_of_conduct.aspx]Code of Conduct[/url]. After you agree to these terms you can proceed to your creation. II.1 The creation form is simple to fill out. You have: Group name Group Membership Approval (open or closed) Group Motto Group Description Your name is unique. It cannot be changed ever, pick a name that best shows your groups goals and the discussions that will take place within. Membership approval is rather people can join freely, or if you decide if they can join or not. Your motto can be anything, you can make up something for now, but remember you can change it later (see section IV). Your description should show the goal of your group, its purpose, and what takes place within it. III. [b][u]Getting Started[/b][/u] Now that you have created your group, its time to customize! To the right of your screen is the navigation bar. You have links to your various areas of your group- [b]Group HP[/b] This link takes you to your Home Page [b]Forum[/b] A forum that you rule, can moderate it however you like. Make sure discussion here does't violate the code of conduct. [b]Memberlist[/b] This shows all the members you have. As an admin you can edit your members security roles (aka member titles) [b]Articles your group covers[/b] Simple articles your group covers can be placed here [b]Faqs[/b] a Faq area where you can create group related FAQs (like this one) [b]Contact Info[/b] Contact info for your members nothing more [b]Group Links[/b] You can manage your links here, these links can link to various other websites that help or promote your group, or random links you want (keep 'em clean links) [b]Group Settings[/b] Controls for your entire group is here. (see section IV) [b]Admin Tools[/b] Tools that only admins can have are here (see section V) [b][u]Group Settings[/b][/u] Here you can change your groups Theme (see bottom), your group description, your motto which you might change, group Hq and your group membership options. You can also create a unique Link ID for your group. [b][u]Admin Tools[/b[/u] This is a very important part of your group that you should familiarize if you want to have a great group! [b]News Queue[/b] This is where you can accept news submited by your members [b]Blacklist Management[/b] Managing your blacklist can be done here. You can blacklist members 2 ways. On the offensive post on your forum, each member has "unleash ninjas" next to their names. Click ing this will allow you to set a blacklist for an amount of time you choose, as well as a description to why they are being banned. This will show up everytime they try to post until the blackist expires (if ever). The second way is to choose them from the Memberlist which gives you the same options [b]Security Role Editor[/b] This allows you to create mods and even other admins, or just simple user titles. Your defaults are Member, Non Member, and Administrator. You can edit the titles of these be simply clicking "modify role", then changing the role name. You can also edit out what privileges the role gives. For regular members usually having Post in forums and submit news is best. What each option does is self explanatory.
