As the groups are growing in popularity, we would like to come up with some posting tools to help interconnect groups with the general discussion posts.
Currently, you can make a link to a group by putting "g:" + the number for the group (yeah, I know, ugly but the number doesn't change if the group owner changes it's hashtag). I'd like to propose that we use a symbol and the group hashtag so it's easier to remember... but have to come up with a symbol to use (some candidates are %, & , + and ^). Thoughts?
Now, making a link to a group is fine in your posts, comments and replies (and chats), but I'm thinking we could enable members of groups to "share" posts they find interesting in the general discussions with their groups. My plan is whenever someone puts a link to a group, then we put a link to that post in the group (but in a separate list called "Shared Posts" ).
