Am I the only one who sees a general trend in the two existing groups?

[Image: Zu5lLp2.png]

They both have the same niche and the most generic one at that. It pisses me off as it helps nothing in the forum, it's just so users can feel 'HQ' and so can the owners, it also makes the people who don't get in that they aren't good enough and could make them refrain from posting, I think that this should change. To group owners: Think outside the box, not inside with all the generic ideas.

What do you guys think?

I can see what you mean. Back on FC I applied for a group but this time I don't plan to as like you said a group shouldn't make a member feel High Quality. Their posts should.
HQ - Detailed tutorial or leak.
LQ - Spamming welcome threads and posting leaks with no details.
I haven't leaked anything yet but I do plan to do it in a reasonable manner in due time. Just too busy with real life stuff.

It's stupid, I plan to stay here just for the community and to make sure there is a variety of posts and threads.

I second that I was active on FC but then went inactive and was active on NBB then went inactive.
This time around I plan to jump anytime I get free and contribute to a discussion or release something.
I welcome new members but not every new one that joins = spam.

They paid for it, so I'm fine with them doing what they'd like. Just because one exists already doesn't mean nobody else should do the same.

But two groups which do the same thing? Surely the group owners should see it as a waste of money? When they could use their group to drive the community and make it a better place instead of just making it a money whore opportunity.

To be fair linkz said "Your group must have a niche. We don't need 5 groups about the same topic." we are getting to that point pretty quickly.
I just hope groups become more valuable in terms of wanting to get in them, if that makes sense?

Our community is small so its reasonable to be more lenient on a few guidelines. I understand what you're saying though.

technically they copied us as it would be impossible for us to copy them.

spamming welcome threads.. I can understand why you hate that. I try not to do it.
posting leaks w/o details. I'll make sure to post details now.

That's true but still we can't have groups about the exact same thing. + A rule.

to the person that made this thread. I understand you. And to be honest have no idea what are niche is. As I bought the group and tom makes everything like the description, niche, ect.

I completely agree with you but at the same time since there is so few groups wouldn't it be better to make them different?
