Default Social Group Creation Temporarily Disabled

Hey dudes,

As you may have noticed, the new and exciting way spammers have decided to attack our forums is by creating hundreds of social groups peddling various male enhancement pharmaceuticals and everything else under the sun. It seems like new ones were being made just as fast as I was deleting the spam ones, so for the time being I've disabled the creation of new user groups.

This is a temporary solution. Arn is out of town for a few days and is our resident VBulletin wizard... Sorry if this inconveniences anyone!

My Avengers Alliance group was deleted we wanted a group so that we don't bombard the main forum as much and have a better way of organizing our posts for newbies and veterans of the game. Hope it can be restored, thanks.

Oh shit. Let me see what I can do about that. I'm SO sorry. I deleted hundreds of spam groups and it looks like yours fell inside of the date range I purged.
