Group Distribution Lists

Not sure if something exists for this, if it does, let me know.

However, I am looking for a modification that would work similar to DBtech's Advanced User Tagging but instead of tagging a user, it would tag a "group" where people can choose to be added to the group. This could be used for both messaging in the PM system as well as tagging on forums.

ie: @group_mancityfans or @markfl_fans ( )

I would envision this as something that a user can create a group and either add members to it (more admin/moderator functionality) or people could "subscribe" to that group.

I am not sure if this could even be possible because it would not be calling a user per say.

and as a point of note, I already asked for this on DBtech with no answer


Thanks,
Scott

ok - before I make a request for modification. This is what I am thinking for this modification to be created.

This would allow for "groups" that can either be "tagged" or PM'd (similar to the way the DBtech's advanced used tagging works for users). In my initial thought, this would probably require a new table for the name of group, user ID's added to the group at minimum. Then a page to either register or unregister a "subscription" to that group and potential a modification to the user table to add a data point to ID if it's a "user" or a "group" user.

Since this group, ultimately would be in the user table, it could use the existing code base for the Advanced User Tagging does today.

What flaws do you see in doing this (besides probably everything )
