New groups version: What's changed?

Our new groups are designed to make it easier for people to exchange information and opinions with one another. To achieve this, we made the following changes:

  • Post faster than ever: You can now post right from the group's homepage, avoiding the need to navigate to the relevant forum.
  • Images and videos: Group members can now add videos and images to their posts, thus making them multimedia.
  • Available on iPhone and Android: Now users can get involved while out and about as the new groups section is available via the iPhone and Android apps.
  • Group presentation: The new "About this group" tab is a great way for moderators to describe their group with text and images.
  • Moderator news:These are special posts only available to moderators and are indicated as such.
