content moving?

I think they are moving group related content from other locations. ( for example <a href="http://www.drupal-camp.org/:>http://www.drupal-camp.org/ )
I clicked on http://groups.drupal.org/groups (upper right corner of browswer) to join two groups.

How to set up a new group?

robertgarrigos's picture

This looks like a great site to start building up what I've been thinking of for some months now: creating a group of Drupal users from Catalonia.

How can we (will) create a new group on this site?

Congrats & Question about newbies

Congratulations Moshe for organizing and implementing the Drupal Groups web site! That being said, I have looked around a bit and am wondering if this site is more for the developers, or are newbies welcome to participate? I'm just wondering because I've been looking for a more controlled environment where folks that are using drupal at the ground level can actually get help and understanding of how drupal works. The drupal.org site is great, but it is unwieldy. There is so much outdated information there that learning is not so easy.

So I'm hoping that folks like myself can actually get some help from those in the know within the various groups that have been established. I will hold off asking questions until I get a better idea of what the groups.drupal.org is really all about.

Essentially...

Essentially this site is for three(ish) types of groups (at the moment):

  1. Local user groups, with the idea being that you can get support or just chat with or get together with other Drupal people in your general area.
  2. Working groups, for developers centred around a specific project or development task.
  3. Event-planning groups for those "major" events so that the planning committees have a place to throw to-dos and whatnot up there.

I could see a "newbies helping newbies" group possibly fitting within the context of a working group, but I'll leave it to Moshe to decide.

sure

newbies helping newbies is a decent working group ... i'll add though that the handbook at drupal.org is open for anyone to change. please help make it clearer and less outdated. i'm not interested in alternate places for help information.

Getting here

Is there (or will there be) a way to navigate to here from the main Drupal site?

Thanks,
