I think I need to clarify.
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.

When the hell did this become Cheap Ass High School? This sounds like an idea born of the 'nobody accepts the real ME' crowd. Ugh.

I agree with the GameFAQs comment.

It depends how you look at it.
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.

JimmieMac: Let me tell you something when it all came to pass, the name JimmieMac, the man JimmieMac, got bigger than the whole forum! And then CheapyD, Amigo, he wanted to talk turkey with JimmieMac. CheapyD promised me movies, brother, CheapyD promised me millions of dollars, brother, and CheapyD promised me world calibre posters.. As far as CheapyD, BigNick, and the whole Cheapassgamer.com forums goes, I'm bored brother. That's why these two guys here, the so-called Outsiders, these are the men I want as my friends. They're the new blood of professional posting, brother, and not only are we going to take over the whole gaming business, with JimmieMac and the new blood, the monster with me, we will destroy everything in our path.

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?

I agree with Sweeney for once...I think if we had an interest group it would be great...like people that really like FPS could get into a forum and dicuss new and upcoming FPS they are looking forward too...That kind of "grouping" would be great, because you would'nt have alot of these stupid forums showing up that pretty much have the same premise as 20 other ones...Here is a list of interest groups we could have:

Old School Game Enthusiasts
FPS Enthusiasts
Platformer
Puzzle
RPG
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

If it wasn't for JimmieMac, JSweeney would still be selling meat from a truck in Minneapolis and if it wasn't for JimmieMac

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?

You know, I figured this would happen. I never wanted groups to turn into gangs. I hate flame wars as much as anyone, but it could've been a nice little thing for people with common interests, like JSweeney said. I only used the ninjas and gestapo as an example. I'm going to add a poll, evn though so far, it is easy to see nearly everyone is against it.

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