    I know it may seem simple to you, but I know some people (including me honestly...) would have a lot of difficulty shutting down their own group. Either they're attached to it and don't want to shut it down, or they are unable to be online any time soon to shut it down.

    Indeed.

    Just to add an extra note, we've decided that in EXCEPTIONAL circumstances, we may chose to let a closed group remain. By exceptional circumstances, I mean we're presented with a very good reason why 1)Bulbagarden needs to have that group and 2)That group need to be private. This will only be granted in very rare circumstances.

    Why was my group deleted? It hasn't been 7 days and I would have made it a public group.
    That's nice.

    Seeing how the only group (The Planetary Pit Stop) I truly cared about is now gone, how do I get rid of the notifications I still have in my control panel for its discussions? Clicking on them is not making them go away.

    Well I guess it doesn't matter now because you guys already fucking deleted it, but it really would have been nice to give me like a day, or even like 6 hours notice or something so I could make a personal archive of all the good stuff in that group. Thanks a lot.

    The Planetary Pit Stop is the most important group on Bulbagarden and Bulbagarden needs this group!

    I am still in shock that it's been deleted...... We never did anything that broke the rules! We just went there to talk, have some fun, have a few laughs, things like that.

    I'm sure most of, if not all the members of it, agree with me when I say that The Planetary Pit Stop is one of the main reasons why we come to Bulbagarden each day! Now that it's gone..... A HUGE part of our Bulbagarden is gone forever!

    So yeah, I'll say it again, Bulbagarden NEEDS The Planetary Pit Stop!

    I'm really shocked that the Pit Stop was deleted, it was a very active, friendly club with a close knit member selection, I'd hope that is a mistake.

    Fab's better not be next or I'll hit the roof.

    I understand why the mods need to clean up the social groups. It's got to be impossible to keep up with every single one. However, my opinion is that the social groups are also part of the forums and should be treated as such. They seem like the best way for a group of users to talk privately (or at least semi-privately) and easily without just anyone being able to interrupt. If users prefer using this as a way of communicating over the large sections such as Entertainment Inc. or Outside the Box then they should be able to. I can fully understand getting rid of pointless, redundant, or inactive groups, but some groups are special to the users in them and would be a major loss to them, worsening their Bulbagarden experience as a whole.

    Couldn't the mods have just made a rule about having to be invited into private groups to keep an eye on them?

    This. The entire reason that the Zexalia Hideout was made was to stop cluttering TWR, and, well, now we really don't have any good ways to communicate.

    What exactly warrants these reasons?

    If my club is deleted, I can only assume its on the grounds of racial discrimination. #blacknproud

    But seriously, I think the admins are hiding the groups from public view so that they can later be convinced to keep them or not, they're soft deleted, not hard deleted.
