A suugestion for Cyprezz...

Firstly, to avoid confusion things written in this blog written by JakeusM will be written in standard text and those things written by Mole will be in bold text.




So very recently me and my brother Connaire (LittleMrMole) have been posting a fair bit of content on to PMC that is related to each others projects. So Connaire's managed to rack up a lot of subscribers in the recent few days from stuff that we've both had a minor contribution in (and vies versa)!

We're in a group of Minecrafters called FarlandFilms, and we wanted to be able to post content together, without having to copy links and stuff to each other's blogs and it's all a lot of fuss. So we came up with a small, but good suggestion we'd rather like to be considered for addition to the site.

Whilst sitting watching Adam Sandler's 'The Wedding Singer' and browsing Connaire's PMC account, an idea popped into my head; PMC Groups!

It's simple really, a small social feature that allows you to group together with other members, post and share content relevant to the group's theme. For example, say I wanted to join a group that posts skins based on classic video games, I could. And if that group didn't exist, I could start one and invite all my friends.

This means that instead of subscribing to different people that YOU know are part of a group on PMC and getting ALL of their posts that you don't want to see, you can subscribe to the group and get only the content they post on it!

Anyway, we'd love for your input on our idea and see if you guys have any ideas to improve our idea... Is the word idea starting to look weird?.. Idea.... Idea... Idea...........

This has been already thought of, I think HappyBandaid is working on it now.

Its a good idea in theory, but consider this. The 10 top skinners start a group for the top skinners, that group proceeds to dominate the entire skin pop reel, essentially ruining the skinning community. The same thing can (and would) happen for the other sections, making PMC a place where you can only ever hope to be part of the popular group... sounds like an idea that would ruin the entire PMC community to me.

Nice idea. Should probably pass this onto Dinow's blog to gain more visibility. I can see malicious use for it, but I think the benefits will balance it out.

Not as good of an idea as you think... imagine what would happen if the top 10 skinners of pmc were to start a group, it would effectively kill off the entire skinning community.

Honestly, it sounds like a good idea but I feel that PMC may end up having too many similar groups, much like the problem of there being too many similar skins, but that may not happen, it depends on the process and outcome of introducing groups. Other than that flaw it would give people a chance to make new friends with similar interests and such. Personally, I'd like for this to happen, but it all depends on the opinion of the PMC staff. Good luck with it! ^^

It's a good idea, but that's all it is, it's merely an idea. There's lots of conflicts that would need to be thought about before hand. The main problem I see is that popular skinners like leostereo and dinowcookie and such that you see on the popular reel would make groups and EVERYONE would want to join. Other people could start a group and no one join. This could cause a sad, unwanted feeling amung people on PMC. It's a great idea, it just needs to be refined.

What about private and public groups? Like, say, Snowylips and Disco make a private group. No one will see that group other than them. Public groups are visible to everyone on the front page.

This is a great idea! I see tons of groups and societies everywhere. This would also be a good way to handle people applying for the group. Simply post in a particular section of that group's page!

Mmm, quite. I've known people who have had this type of dillema before. I agree that this should exist.
I can't really think of any downsides besides the obvious (Idiot users doing horribly stupid things, ect.)

I have an idea instead of groups mabie you can make a clan were you get jobs for the clan like skinner or miner or modder and when you post somthing it says (say your clan is named Bob) skin by Bob!

Planet Minecraft is a community where Minecrafters share their work, not some roleplay thing.

The game minecraft itself is about doing whatever you care to do. Why should the community around it be any different? If he wants to specify jobs within the group (or clan) then I say go for it!
