The Group System provides organization for players, usually for IC factions, etc. Think of it like an MMORPG Guild system. Staff are considered members of all groups and can use any group resource.


     rank - Rank 1 is a group leader, with all numerically higher values being 
     progressively lower in rank. This way the rank structure can extend as far
     as a group leader wishes. Many commands can be restricted by rank. Staff  
     are considered Rank 0 for code purposes.                                  
     titles - titles represent codenames, aliases, etc, or humorous notations, 
     and display on the group's +gwho and channels.

Display Types

     FACTION - Alters display for large and officialized factions. +group

     number, and the first found of either <title> or <rankname>, such as

Bulletin Boards

Each Group has its own set of Boards that use much of the same conventions as the Global BBS. The commands and features are completely identical, with one difference: they all begin with +gb instead of +bb!

Reading Boards

     +gbread <#>[/<#>] - In group mode, takes an optional =<groupname> to      
     specify which group. otherwise, uses current focus.                       
     +gbscan <groupname> - Like +bbscan, but can be pointed at a specific      
     group. otherwise, uses focus.                                             

Managing Boards

You must have the GBADMIN Permission to use these commands. Anyone with it passes all group board locks and can use +gbremove, +gbedit, etc on any post.

     +gborder <new order> - Reorders board display order. Must use all board   
     numbers in new order. Example: If you had five boards, and wanted to make 
     the final board the first, you'd use +gborder 5 1 2 3 4                   
     +gbconfig <board>/<parameter>=<value> - Sets a board's <option> to        
     <value>. Entering no <value> clears the option. Available Options:        
          anonymous - Set to <name> makes all posts appear to be from <name> 
          as long as it's set. GBADMIN still see real poster.                
          timeout - See +help BBS/Timeouts                                   

Securing Boards

Group Boards can be locked so that only certain people of a certain rank or better may see or post to them.

     write - Controls who may post to a board.                                 
     read - Controls who can see a board and read its posts. Boards you cannot 
     see will not be displayed on +gbread!

     +gbunlock <board>/<locktype> - Unlocks a board.
