I spotted this thread from the front, and I just wanted to clear up a couple things.
1. My group was never a Minecraft group. It was for talking only. I even remember people saying that I created the group because the IRC was no longer official. That's also false. I created my group for the exact purpose it holds today: to chat
2. I actually made a thread for my group a month or so before I actually got around to creating it (leaving the thread inactive for about month). Because of this, Sleuthy took it down, but I noticed when I went to go look for it not long after. Thus, I created another thread. That's around the time the group actually started growing.
...wait, I thought we talked about this in a skype call not too long ago
P.S. I haven't been on Skype in awhile because it hogs the little memory I have. Sorry
