Good question. There is still a Groups tab on the My Site section, but "There are no groups to display at this time.", and the Privacy Settings have the following options listed:





"Group Broadcasts Group owners and moderators may send out broadcast messages to members of their group. When you join a group, would you like to allow that group's owners and moderators to send you broadcast messages?


Yes, I want to receive group broadcasts (default)


No, please block group broadcasts"





Maybe the groups will return/be reintroduced in the future?

so wat are the rewards for 2011-2012???






Square Enix Members Ultimate Bundle

<ul>


Amano Yo****aka FINAL FANTASY art print (approximate retail value ($150.00)




Square Enix Members license plate (approximate retail value $50)




Square Enix Members fleece blanket (approximate retail value $30)




Square Enix Members lanyard (approximate retail value ($10)


[/list]




Looks like these will be our rewards. A strange bunch, but nifty in their own little respect. Here's the picture of the art print (http://desmond.imageshack.us/Himg213/scaled.php?server=213&filename=kgrhqvhjb8e8fqmnzybbpmj.jpg&res=medium) the members program gave away in Japan. Most likely we'll receive the same, but the bottom will be changed into English.

Things are kind of inversed. I mean, when the site went down and returned only the groups were available, while the MyPage wasn't available. Now that the site is back, we have functional profiles for each user, but no groups.

I'm sorry that I can't confirm anything at the moment. Currently we haven't revealed what previous features will return and how they'll change. In the meantime, I'm glad many of you are enjoying the forums--as we definitely consider this the premier place to hear and talk about our games.

Ryutim
5th Jun 2012, 16:25
I understand that you can't reveal anything at the moment, but I think I speak for quite a lot of us users when I say that we'd really appreciate having the groups and journal entries back up and running as soon as possible. I for one prefer posting with a few friends in a group, rather than having my ideas and comments out on the forums for anyone to see, and I don't feel like I can relax and just be myself on the forums when I know that anyone can log on and read my comments whenever they like. I'm gratefull to you and the square-enix team for reading our concerns about these matters and I look forward to seeing what changes and additions are made on this site.

I like the members site the way it USED to be

I care about ALL companies regardless of who makes them /tools/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif I reported who blocked Mega Man thread I started I don't join Facebook & twitter due to personal reasons. mainly privacy issues I support bring back MML3 and so do 100,000 other people. I wanted so much to be a game desiner but programming was WAY over my head. so I turned my expertise to a home business instead. A fellow GUNDAM lover asked me to be sub-leader becasue I am PASSIONATE about that anime. I also managed RPG Treasury myself & FF_Fan 13 we posted gaming deals EVERY WEEK for you

I posted E3 & Tokyo Gaming Show news for Past 3 years in my Final Fantasy Series group because I wanted to /tools/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif in which case most of U worked and I knew U would want to know what was going on. If this is how the new SE member site will be I will only come to register my games and nothing else


update July 4 not 6th LOL mind is still sleepy zzz...


Journals back too would be nice since can't Post Pictures /tools/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-cry.gif I enjoyed very much reading journals that other members Posted. In the Past 3 years I frequented members more than youtube so that says something right there /tools/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-smile.gif

I came to this site a lot before the last update when Square changed everything about the site. It was a fun place with a lot of fun people and I met a lot of people that I really like and friends that I genuinely care about through that. Now, I pretty much have no reason to visit the site except to try and find the answr to this. Can anyone enlighten me why they're gone?

Lightning_Stryker
6th Jul 2012, 11:22
There's still parts of the site that are being worked on and that happens to be one of them. Some admins said that you can expect older features to come back as well as some new ones, and also the fact that we have a groups link when you go to my site means that they are eventually going to come back. We just have to be patient. http://na.square-enix.com/tools/tiny_mce/plugins/emotions/img/smiley-laughing.gif I totally understand what you're saying though because I miss my groups! ^^ Haha

While the groups haven't made an appearance yet, the site is still focused on Square Enix fans and friends, and is even more open now with public forums where everyone can share in the discussion. I hope that you can find your friends here and enjoy the site, even as more features open up!

I don't know if there's a more recent thread talking about this, but does anyone know if the groups are gonna be brought back? I haven't heard anything about this in over two months, and since the groups are the main reason why I'm here in the first place (and therefore have little reason to come on here anymore), I just thought I'd ask. If they're not gonna bring back the groups, then I might as well not log on here anymore.

The Groups tab is still there in the My Activities section, so it looks like the plans haven't been completely discarded yet.

I came to this site a few days before they changed it to this new setup, and I can't really recall how the old setup felt and looked.
So for newcomers, I think it's nice and smooth.
This are just my thoughts :P

Ryutim
18th Aug 2012, 11:29
Maybe so, but a smooth layout doesn't make up for a lack of features. Anyway, I know that the groups tab is up there, but whenever you click on it, it says that "There are no groups to display at this time.", and I know that that probably means that they're gonna bring them back eventually, but I've been waiting ever since they changed the site (which was like, forever ago), so when are they finally gonna bring them back?

Grimoire
18th Aug 2012, 11:44
It has been less than three months (79 days) since this version of the website officially went online, so it's only understandable that there are still plenty of features that have yet to be implemented. Well, no need to hurry.

Look at this, we have "two" users talking to each other on a thread. Hey, what's this? Super and Zack have the same PSN account?! Ok, this could be a coincidence, but wait a minute, I detect an extremely similar writing pattern.

The thing is, there's always the message system if you don't want others in your business (and if you want to talk about something that is off-topic). Maybe Zench's assumption about you two being the same is wrong, but if you don't want people involved then don't put it out in the open. Of course, this is for future reference.

Would you recreate your old groups or start entirely new ones? And, if so, what would they focus on?






I'd like to see/create a general group for each respective series (ex: a Star Ocean general group) & some fanclub groups for specific titles (ex: a Final Fantasy IV fan group). All of these groups must keep their topics in relation to their respective series though (unless an off-topic section is made, but they must follow the forum rules in terms of ethics). Some of the old groups had little to no purpose imo (wasn't there a Pokemon group on the old site? Why!?), so I think there must be guidelines to making groups as well (such as groups with obscure names, duplicate groups, etc.). That's all I got, but I think group guidelines will keep things more orderly.


SN: This actually sounds very similar to the forums lol.

Ryutim
22nd Aug 2012, 10:46
I actually enjoyed being able to come on and talk about whatever I felt like, regardless of what it was (I was actually a member of one of the pokemon groups), and I really hope that they bring back all the groups that we had before the site changed. Also, I just don't feel comfortable talking openly in the forums, because anybody can come on here and see everyone's comments, whereas in the groups, it was limited to just the people in that group, and really, I think it's safe to say that we all talk/act differently when we're with a few friends, as opposed to when we know that anyone could hear us (so to speak).

Well then, let's see...say the groups feature returns. Would you recreate your old groups or start entirely new ones? And, if so, what would they focus on?









That is a good question Grimoire. I do miss my old RP groups, but the prospect of starting something new is intriguing. Either way I'm looking for a creative group to contribute to. I've found over the years that pure discussions about games tend to get stale from time to time, re-hashing the same debates over and over again. Trust me, I'm not imaginative enough to bring up a fresh topic on game discussion, so I'm guilty of it as well. Don't get me wrong, I love my consoles and enjoy all the games I have, especially Square Enix RPGs. I guess we'll see how things turn out as this site progresses and adds more features.

Me neither. Maybe they'll bring back the groups, but make it possible to join more than five groups at a time, that way, we can try new things if we want, but still keep the groups we love. I know some people who made multiple accounts because of the five group limit.

no you're right. the fact is you could only create three groups. as for joining them.... there's no limit. you can join as many as you want.

This is incorrect. The limit on how many groups you could be the main leader of at one and the same time was, however, three. You could always delete one of your three groups and create a new one whenever you wanted (or simply leave one of them).

There actually was a limit on the number of groups you could be a member of, but it was a lot larger than 3 or even 5. I did have this problem on occasion and had to leave some groups to become a member of another. The limit was like 15 or something? I don't remember clearly. If those old groups come back, of which I do not have a whole lot of optimism, I hope they offer us a way to join more groups and create more than just three.

Grimoire
27th Aug 2012, 09:32
I know there was a limit, but since I only ever was a member of 7 at one and the same time, I personally never found out exactly what the limit was. 15 sounds like a good estimate judging by how many groups members like Gaialei_Strife seemed to be a part of.

27th Aug 2012, 09:39
Perhaps that will have to be remedied in the future Grimoire, mayhaps there will be some compelling groups out there worth joining when everything is operating. Here's to hoping we travel in similar group circles, there's always room for our resident archeologist in my book.

All the original users don't care about the forums. The groups were the one place people could create stories. Thousands of ideas will just dissappear. How long has it been since the groups dissappeared. Why did the site need a facelift anyway? Sure it's decent enough but there was nothing wrong old site. This is the problem with the internet. Web page owners think they need to fix something that isn't broken.

Personally, I care about the new forums, and I created the very first group on the old version of this site (-FINAL FANTASY VII Excavation-). However, I don't expect everyone to share my opinion.


The groups disappeared about 118 days ago.


The website is now entirely managed by the English teams, and not by the Japanese staff. That is why there has been such an explosive increase in updates.

I'm sure I can find quite a few original users who would love the groups to come back. We check back here every so often to see if they've returned, but as it is I may leave. All the stories we crafted, all the fun we use to have, gone, all because SEM thought it necessary to change when the only problem was the access of the "My Page". Many user who owned or used spent time crafting stories with one another. Now we've been reduced to our FB pages and those get so little activity. I want to know. Are we even going to get back all that has been lost?

You guys don't need to fight and argue over this issue.

I recommend however you place it somewhere more personally associated to yourself, such as your MY PAGE biography, or even your forum signature--especially if its not related to a Square Enix Product or game, etc.


That way anyone who sees your posts will know and be aware of what fan groups and sites you've created and would like people to join! I'm all for the promotion of your groups and meetups.

It's been forever since the site changed. Does anyone know if the groups will ever come back? I used the forum search tool to see if anything came up, but there wasn't anything even remotely helpful there. I really miss the freedom we had in the groups, where we didn't have to stay on any particular topic unless we really wanted to, and we could let our conversations wander into places from wonderful to weird and back again. Please, just tell me, should I keep on waiting for the groups to come back, or am I just wasting my time here? And if they're not coming back, then maybe someone should delete the groups tab on the profile pages, because that'd just be giving us false hope.
