Suggestion On Groups

This is just something that I have been thinking about..
I just visited the Group page, and there are like, 550 groups inside there..
It is so cluttered, and it is difficult to look for a group that I want...X(

So here is some suggestion:
1. Why don't the mods deletes all the inactive groups?
What I mean by inactive are those groups who are declared 'CLOSED' >_< by the admins/mods of the group, and those that are created 'out of accident', which are most likely having wrong spelling in its names x_x ...

2. Why don't we create a category for groups?
There are so many groups out here in MT, which, from my observation, could be divided to few groups, such as :
* Anime/Manga/Game lovers (Inuyasha-Fans, FullMetalAlchemist-Fans, Shaman-Loverz, FinalFantasyFans, ...)
* Mangaka/Idols fans (ClampFans , HyungTaeKim, Utada-Hikaru-Fans, Hirai-Ken, The-Killers, ...)
* Hobbies (Hardcore-gamers, GFX, RPG-lovers, Band-Jam, Music, Japanese, Chinese, ...)
* Community (Asian-Pride, Igarashi, MT-NY, Indonesianese, Minitokyo-Argentina, Brasil, ...)
* Critiques/Supporting a cause (Anti-Friends-Fav, MT-Revolution, EliteScanInc, BogchiDotCom, Cosplay-Lovers, Christian-Fellowship,...)
* Wallpapers/Art Group (NewWaveProject, Simple-ism, Vectorness, UserpageSkinDesign, TheUnderappreciated, ...)
* Miscelaneous ( AnimeLovers, Ivalthia, DayDreamerz, Tomboys-Welcomed, Photoshop-Users, Nocturnal-MTs...)

If we organised these groups into categories (not necessarily the one in my example), it would be easier for members to look for a group they want to join in, or simply browsing thru them.. X3

3. To actually make a group go through the process of approval before it could be established..
We have lotsa 'double' groups here in MT... it is true that there are groups that are simply too big (300++ members), that ppl starts to want to create a new group for the same objective (like FMA-fans and other anime groups...) Well, I think checking each group would reduce clutters of groups here in MT... though actually I do not really like this idea either, I just raise my suggestion >_< why? Hmm, cos I think there are too many groups, ... I do not really support this suggestion (not 100%) cos I think ppl has the right to create groups :) but still, with the checking process, we could reduce no of grps that are simply copies of another groups which is still perfectly fine to join to :D Uh, I hope you got my point...

Anyway, this is just my suggestions.. I am sorry if this has been raised before or even planned to be implemented already ... ^_^

Hey that is a good suggestion too :D wonder why i didnt think of that ;D
Maybe we could get the groups to enter keywords that can describe their groups (while they make the group... e.g. Shaman-Loverz keywords would be Shaman King, anime, manga,... etc), so that we could do a search for it :)

1) no. inactive groups don't cause trouble.
2) mt3
3) 'double' groups cause competition, of of the fundamental ideas of groups.

Hmm, it is true they do not cause trouble, but it is pretty difficult to browse around with so many groups around... Anyway, if you are gg to implement the categorising, I think the problem is much or less solved...

Ranie concure with tare tare!=D
theres way too much groups that are not active..>.>

This signature violates the signature guidelines, thus it has been removed.

A smallsize doesn't mean the group is inactive or something. Some small groups are WAY more useful for the community than vastly larger groups.

i think the fact that theres no search button leads to the "double groups" I accidently created a group for something that already exists, and i never knew till someone pointed it out to me (gomenasai!!!) I think a Group Search tool would really be helpful. is that going to be in MT3?

and i think there should be a way for the admins to delete a group. if the group just isn't working out, and no one participates, theres no point in having that group, right?

I agree with you, MT groups should have categories.

That's true...

Now that's I wanna see...

Hmm... considering that, I think it's right...

And the search group option is very much appreciated like TimothytheDarkMagician said...
