We are going to be deleting some DU Groups. And we need your help to figure out which ones. [View all]

One of our primary goals of this redesign is to make the smaller forums and groups more active, easier to find, and easier to use. To help achieve this goal, we want to clear out some the "dead wood" -- unused and under-used groups that clutter up the site and make it harder to find the more active groups.

We need your help to figure out which groups to save, and which groups to delete.

There are 142 groups listed (by category) under Topics: http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1004

There are another 56 groups listed (by category) under Places: http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1239

You can list all of them on one page by viewing the "Forums & Groups" tab in "Show All" mode:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forums&mode=show_all

Here's what we need you to do. If you are an active DU member who registered before January 19, 2011, then you can log in to DU3. If you haven't already, log in using your DU username http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=login and then subscribe to all your favorite groups. (Note: DU2 "small forums" are now designated as groups on DU3, so you can subscribe to those, too.) Just find each group you like, and then click the orange button on that page which says "Subscribe to this group." It looks like this:



You can also help by posting in your favorite groups on DU3. And if you like, you can post announcements in your favorite groups back on DU2 to encourage people to subscribe here on DU3.

You can check the number of subscribers in any group by visiting that group's "About this Group" page. Just visit any group and click the button that says "About this Group," then look for the words "Number of subscribers".

Thank you for your help.
