What is a private group?
Private groups are private forums for specific types of users (Conservatives, Liberals, Catholics, etc). In such forums users can privately discuss topics among themselves (e.g. Republicans talking about "why Democrats are weak" without Democrats participating in the discussion).
Private groups must remain relatively active. If posting drops to just a few posts per month, it may be closed.
How do I join a group?
You can apply to join one of the current groups by clicking here. Once the associated group-leader approves your membership the private forum will appear for you under the "Private Groups" section of http://www.volconvo.com/forums.
How do I create a new group?
So far the only requirement for creating a member-group that is entitled to a private forum is a minimum of 25 interested members. Organize that many people to join (you can use the "General Discussion" forum to recruit) and then contact a moderator or myself.
