Hi! A few years ago there were a number of groups and clubs that got together to code. I know that a lot of them got shut down due to generating off-topic chatter among other things. That policy makes a lot of sense, due to KA being a learning resource, not a chat.
Recently, I noticed a few groups emerge that adopted KA's policy regarding on-topic chat that also worked to remind people that the site is for programming specifically. I was thinking of organizing my own group, but I want to stay within the guidelines.
The program guidelines state that "Social groups or clubs, or projects that generate social chats, and other posts not related to coding, in the discussion thread." are not allowed. That seems to suggest that a group that doesn't generate any social chat would be allowed.
Are groups allowed as long as they stay within the updated discussion policies?
