That'd be cool if you could join certain groups made specifically for certain things(programming, gaming tips, etc.)

I was just thinking that it would be cool if you were able to join exclusive groups once you were on the site for so long.

Joe96, I hear what you're saying. We've had a lot of dormant users on the site, though, so automatically adding users based on length of membership could get messy. We'd almost have to track how many days you've been "active" on AG3, like playing games, leaving comments, etc. But that might get a little hard for us to program into the site because we'd be writing TONS of tracking information.

That'd be cool if you could join certain groups made specifically for certain things(programming, gaming tips, etc.)

I agree, but some of those kinds of groups may need an "official AG ____ group" for things like programmers, game developers, etc, so we don't end up with 10,000 groups about Flash development, and another 10,000 groups about some political point of view, etc. It would get too difficult for users to find groups, etc. It's one of the most frustrating things I find about Facebook -- anyone can create a "group" about any topic and start inviting people to it, but that allows for a million "Justin Beiber" groups, etc. Bleh.

All of that aside, I'm confused what you wrote, Frank:

be a way in which you can toggle out members' activity streams in the groups or have separate areas just for a group's AS? If you pair this up with regular followers/friends, it can be near impossible to read them all without them being hidden.

Can you explain this a little bit more?

Well if a guy looks on his dashboard and sees the activity stream of his followees, his friends, AND his group members, it can get chaotic, especially if the group has a high count. So I was thinking you could make a separate section for group AS's or toggle the activity stream on/off.

Okay, so you want to see separate activity streams for each category of relationship then... I'll mention it to Larry.

Well I guess then everyone who is interested in creating Groups/Clans will have to level up quicker eh?

Maybe there could be tabs to toggle who's activity you are viewing?

...it can get chaotic

Yeah, but maybe there could be some sort of ticker which could push the activity feed horizontally like in the stock markets.
