What is a group?

Who makes them?
What do they add to the community?
When can they be made?
Where are the people that make them?
Why are they made?
How can I make one?

Seeing as this is a question about Instructables, what category would you put it in?

Groups are sort of like themed clubs, a way of gathering members, projects and discussions that have something in common (for instance).

There are a lot more groups in existence than appear on the Groups link, but they are in the middle of a (slow) rebranding/repurposing, and most of them have been moved into the background of the site's day-to-day

They used to be easy to make, but the concept was under-used and mis-used, hence the current lack of an option to create them.

However, if you have a really good idea for a group, or for how to use them, drop a line to HQ and outline it.

Thanks for the informative answer Kiteman, I will surely contact HQ if I am in want/need of a group.

On another note, do you know what counts as a view?

P.S. your hyperlink doesn't work :-(

A "view", as far as I know, is a click by anybody who is not the author. I think that, if the "clicker" has cookies enabled, multiple clicks from the same person only count once.

Aha, thanks for clearing that up!

The second hyperlink works perfectly.

There is an instructable about groups https://www.instructables.com/id/How-to-Use-Modera... but it only scratches the surface on how to create one.
