Adding Instructables to Groups no longer allowed? Answered

Three years ago, Noah documented a then-new interface to add published Instructables to Groups to which a user belonged.  Some time in the last few months, that interface, the Add To Your Groups button, was removed from the Instructables right-hand sidebar. 

Was this a deliberate change to the interface, or an accidental oversight?

If it was deliberate, then I think a forum topic announcing the change explicitly would be in order.  A search for "add to groups" reveals no such topic.

If it was an oversight, could it be restored?

A similar problem, but not identical. The above is specific to some administrative options available to members of the Feature Team. What I'm reporting used to be available to all users (the box was right under the "Related" list). I'm hoping that Rachel or Matt can address whether this was removed on purpose or not :-)

Yes! I am having this same issue. Cannot add instructables to any of the groups I run. Not even my own (no option to do so).

Groups box is gone, too. What's up?

I see what you mean. A few updates ago, they had restricted adding I'ble to groups to only the owner of the group. Now even that is gone. It seems like they are implicitly "abandoning" groups as a feature of the site, perhaps because there are so many problems, missing features, etc.

Me too. It would be a great to have. :)
