In two previous articles, I announced that Registered members could both create Groups, and change their viewing.
I've just learned that that settings were not correctly set, and they could do neither. I've corrected those settings and y'all can now do both.
To create a Off Topic Group, click the "Off Topic Group" tab and you will see a link to create a group. Make sure you've checked that a similar group doesn't already exist. Do not create a group that you do not intend to manage, or it will ultimately get deleted (if little participation) or put up for adoption to other group member if viable.
To quickly change skin, scroll to the Southwest corner of the page.
