Now, I have no idea how difficult this would be, but is it possible to have the group function expanded to have non-mod groups? I ask, because recently, there has been a lot of factioning among the members, most notably my grammar gestapo and dcfox's misspelling ninjas (formerly ran by Jsweeney).

Now, I have no clue how difficult this would be to do, or possible consequences, but I was just curious. It might be fun.

Or it could explode in your face. I'll say sorry in advance.

EDIT: Poll added.

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

I really think that this would be a bad thing for the site...especially if things get out of hand. We can be cliquey enough; in my eyes, we don't need to divide up the user base any more than it already is.

ah, a voice of logic in the form of a walrus

And techniqally I'm not a group yet. Just my blue lonesome for now. But you forgo the rouges, deadzone and JSweeney.

Well, if there were groups, there would probably be ranks within the group. And that's a good point Walrus, but it can't hurt to ask.

I call Grammar Fuhrer(sp? I don't speak German)

When you get to a thousand posts just put your "orginazation" instead of what you would normally have...I think cliques are bad enough and I like CAG and I wouldnt want this to turn into some rank competing clique loving site...I dont want people to start doing what we already do to n00bs to people other than n00bs...Am I making any sense? Or am I praddling on like a little school girl?

There are Cliques? Why wasn't I informed?!

Oh wait, because it's a BAD IDEA. If you guys want to role around in forum guilds like this was go-gaia, get matching Sig files.

Oh so now you are using intelligence and common sense to win the arguement...that's low man! This is CAG and you aren't allowed to do that.

Yep. Playing faction on off topic boards is one thing, but actually formalizing them is another.
You're just asking to start flamewars that way.

NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise...surprise and fear...fear and surprise.... Our two weapons are fear and surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... Our *three* weapons are fear, surprise, and ruthless efficiency...and an almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.... Our *four*...no... *Amongst* our weapons.... Amongst our weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise....and PROPER GRAMMAR!

Please share with me, how might this be fun? I just cannot think of any way that fun would enter into this idea.

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.

Seems like this would only seem to be a good idea for people that take this basically anonymous group far too seriously.

Here's hoping Jasmine Trias is a CAG and wants to join the gestapo. *crossing fingers*

Horrible Idea.

If you want gangs and flame wars go to gamefaqs.

Gameplay is what makes a game worth playing - not story or graphics
