How to start a new group?

Tags: ask, groups, info

I want to start a discussion about books and reading, how do I go about starting one? I only see an option to start a topic in one of the existing groups.

TIA

      Yes, they are! This ~tildes is one group. ~movies is another group, as is ~science. Groups is a feature. Creating groups is not yet a feature (unless you're Deimos!).

          Thanks, I was looking for groups which aren't on the list, turns out I've gotta wait for it to be made.

            You can use ~talk or ~misc in the meantime. New groups will probably be started when there are enough tags in general groups. So if there are many posts in ~talk that are tagged "books", it will...

            You can use ~talk or ~misc in the meantime. New groups will probably be started when there are enough tags in general groups. So if there are many posts in ~talk that are tagged "books", it will likely count towards the creation of said group. (But ~books will come soon anyway, it's planned.)

              Yes, that seems like the way to go with now. Since we have ~tv and ~movies, its only a matter of time before ~ books makes it way.

        You could post discussions to ~talk or ~misc if you can't find the "right" group for it.
