Can we have groups?

Groups would be a nice extra piece of functionality... but the factions and flamewars that would inherently grow from that would be rather terrifying. Having special groups for some discussions would be added value to the site.
But in reality, I can't get around the idea that this would cause gangs and factions to form on the board, and just dump a whole bunch of gasoline on the landscape strewn with tinder and kindling that is CAG.

I agree with the GameFAQs comment.

Interest Groups would be a very nice thing... not only would it put people interested in the same thing together, it would remove some of the topics from the board that those people would care about, but no one else.
Like, for example, A group for people that play the Pokemon TCG or Magic the Gathering, etc.

SneakyPenguin: Look at all this crap in the topic! This is what's in the future for you if you want to hang around with the likes of these men
JimmieMac: As far as I'm concerned, all this crap in the topic represents the fans out here. For two years, brother, for two years, I held my head high, I did everything for the kids, the reception I got when I came out here...you fans can stick it, brother, because if it wasn't for JimmieMac you people wouldn't be here. If it wasn't for JimmieMac, JSweeney would still be selling meat from a truck in Minneapolis and if it wasn't for JimmieMac, all these Johnny-Come-Lately's that you see out here posting, wouldn't be here. I was selling out the world, brother, while you were stealing gas to put in the car to get to high school, so the way that it is now, brother, with JimmieMac and the New World Organization of Posting, brother, me and the new blood by my side ... whatcha gonna do when the New World Organization runs wild on you? Whatcha gonna do?

Old School Game Enthusiasts
and many others
If we had something like that where everyone that enjoyed those factions of games could come and speak their minds about games in the genre that they like, then it would be great. I think that if such a thing does happen then if ANYONE starts a flamware because of someones opinion then they should be banned for a day, and so one as the policy goes. We dont need more flame wars on CAG...We already have too many...I have noticed that their havent been as many in the past couple weeks and some of this may be attributed to some people getting banned coughMLWcough...If this does happen I suggest some serious MOD coverage

You know, taken the wrong way, that statement is very, very wrong.

I think there need to be hazings for one to become a member. You know, do embarassing stuff like run around the neighborhood with just your socks on. Photos required. Women only.
You got something against feet? Or just something for socks?

By four o'clock I've discounted suicide in favor of killing everyone else in the entire world instead.
