We call them Federations, but you can call your own what you want. We have
reserved the right to create the actual sub communities to VIP Managers, but
everyone can join one. New users (and those not been with us long) will
automatically be added to the Newbie Federation, but they can change to another
when they like. All users can be a member of one Federation, but VIP Managers
can be have a total of five federation memberships at any one time. You find the
federations under the community menu.
The federations are just one step to improve community interaction. Some may say that making sub-communities can damaging to the overall community, but we are confident that they will be used as a compliment. Another step we will take is to add community interaction linked to the competitions. Personally I always feel a need to explain why I lost a certain match and predict the next one. Although this may be done in the forum now, we will make this directly linked to the action in the future.
