    Any way to list the groups the user is in under the Market section? In addition, can we have it show if there has been new posts?

    I don't understand what you're asking.

    Our marketplace? Are you talking about the actual marketplace, or the right column here in the forums?

    On the right side of the main page, the Android Market box. Put a User Group section below it with the groups the logged in user belongs to.

    EDIT: Added a very bad picture for the idea.

    Ok so, just to straighten me out here and make sure we're clear.

    You mean like a separate box under marketplace that tells you what groups your in? For example, for you it would say Moderator, for joe shmoe it would say Registered Users.

    ?

    And in that same box, it would list new posts, or at least how many new posts, a clickable link that would take you to your "new posts" page?

    We are NOT talking about modifying the Android Marketplace box itself, with new apps/posts in there, right? (because that is something we've thought about)

    Edit: OOOH, I see now. I like that idea. However I have sorta been toying with trying to convince Rob that the right column is a bad idea period - considering it's current (lack of) function and the space it takes up. Ever seen what this site looks like 1024 X 768? But your idea would give the column more purpose.

    Anyway.. I like where you're going with that. Maybe it would work okay on the left column as well.

    I would just like it on the main page. Hell, even just making the "Groups" tab have a "(2)" (or whatever number of threads with new posts) next to it for new posts in groups I'm a member of would be nice.

    I love the idea and asked the designer dude about this but he didn't know of an easy way to make it happen. I will try and do some digging myself.

    Right now I'm just using basic sidebars but I may have to move to vbAdvanced because they offer some more advanced (duh) sidebar features. Although I'm reluctant to because I think that often causes some plugins to conflict with eachother.

    I'm open to solutions if you guys can find something better/quicker than I can. http://vbulletin.org is always a good starting place.
