    Are you talking about the Bloods and the Cryps?

    I still have tears in my eyes from laughing so hard during the Criple Fight Episode. My wife just has a disgusted look on her face as she watches it. Criple Fight is my favorite South Park Episode.

    I have them ready but I had a lot of stuff come up today that prevented me from doing much to roll them out. I will work on writing something up to help explain the feature and then post a new thread to announce it.

    Social groups? Is this something intended to make CF more like high school?

    Re: Social groups?

    The purpose of the social groups is to provide a forum-ish area for people to discuss off-topic items. This way they won't bother the rest of the board.

    Wouldn't that be the "off-topic" forum?

    Off-topic stuff still shows up on the front page and when you use "New Posts". Social groups would be a place where you would actually have to seek out posts, topics, etc. I hope that makes sense...

    One idea would be for there maybe to be a notification if there is a new post in a group in which you're a member.

    But then I'd have to set something up..........

    Can't someone else just do the work for me?
