    Default Social Groups Disabled

    Hello SPPf,

    After long, careful consideration by the staff, we have decided to disable the option for Social Groups on these forums.

    The main reasoning behind this is, because of the way the moderation for them was set up, they were very difficult to moderate and did not receive much attention. As such, many groups were spammy, repetitive, or otherwise breaking the rules, and it was too difficult to keep up with removing them all.

    The vast majority of Social Groups that actually followed the rules can be slightly tweaked and posted in the Clubs, Clans, Games, and other Forums (provided there is not already a very similar thread there).

    We are making plans to make up for this loss in forum functions, but it is unlikely that Social Groups will ever return unless there are significant updates in the moderation options.


    How to find your group through Google Cache

    The url for Social Groups is:

    http://www.serebiiforums.com/group.php

    Put this url into google and you'l end up with the search results. Next to the title will be the word Cached. This is a recording made by google of the page at a previous date.

    [img]http://i56.*******.com/2w4jih0.jpg[/img]

    Click on Cached and the original page will open. You wont be able to browse, but you will be able to copy the links of each page. Put the link back into google and click Cached on the first hit on the results. Keep doing this and you'll be able to dig your way through the cached pages to find your original groups. You wont be able to search, so you'll have to do it manually. If you have the original link for your group, such as in your favourites menu, then you can just put it straight into google.

    Please note that it will not always work. Sometimes it wont go back far enough, or the page just wont be stored in the cache. But using this method you should be able to get at least some of your information back.

    But I recommend you do it NOW, before the cache is set to the current state of the groups being gone.

    be sure to read the rules of every section before posting ;)

    Little Miss Stalinist/Secret Al-Qaeda agents (i.e. Ellie) would be a ***** even if she was a conserative republican. What makes her the way she is happens to be the fact that the webmaster of this site let's her behave like this. (Of course, I would never make a liberal a staff member at any forum I'd be in charge of, regardless.)

    Well, I guess this would happen some point, but they're right, and I find this call, a good one.

    RIP. Social Groups. Ha ha, just kidding. I didn't care much for Social Groups anyway.
    Someone should trade me a Banette/Shuppet for Pokemon X. Please.

    .........i liked the social groupd :/

    To dream the impossible dream, to fight the unbeatable foe
    To bear with unbearable sorrow. To run where the brave dare not go.
    To try when your arms are too weary. To reach the unreachable star!
    This is my quest! To follow that Star! No matter how hopeless, no matter how far
    To fight for the right, without question or pause, to be willing to march into hell for a heavenly cause!
    And The world will be better for this, that one man, scorned and covered with scars still strove to his last ounce of courage.
    To reach, that unreachable star!

    If you lost your social group and think it is viable, then use our Clubs forum

    http://www.serebiiforums.com/forumdisplay.php?f=30

    We know many of you liked this, and Serebii was really reluctant to remove them for that reason, but they were impossible to moderate as Ellie said. There are plans for reperations so don't worry.

    I was planning on doing that anyway, but I'm lazy.

    I'm not saying every social group. Sometimes I would look at them, and the last time they were posted in was 2 months ago. Its eaisier to make a club.
