    Hello Everyone,

    I've been working behind the scenes to tackle one of the most requested issues at LG, Some type of messaging system. Most use Skype , or group me, or discord as ways to communicate to people in a quick and easy way. The new LG Group Messaging System aims to eliminate that need. If your like me, you dont want to run another "chat" program on your computer and/or phone, or you dont want to add people to facebook or give out your phone number. This system solves all that.

    The key to this messaging system is to achieve these goals
    1. Automate groups as much as possible (ie managers group, BOG group ect)
    2. Have a messaging system for short and quick messages, but not cannibalized the need for the Xenforo "Conversation" system.
    3. Have a system for both the website and mobile app support.
    There are 3 "Groups" that will be completely automated, meaning people being added or removed to them is controlled by the system, those groups are

    1. Selected Xenforo UserGroups. So everyone who's a manager in the LGHL NHL will be in its own Group, LGAHL Managers would be in another ect)
    2. Team Managers - So if you are on the Toronto Maple Leafs LGHL Xbox, all your managers will be in their own usergroup
    3. Team Chat - Teams will have their own group, and "Team Chat" will be replaced by this system.
    The other type of Group is "custom", where any registers LG user can make their own private group of friends, much like any facebook/whatsapp group chat.

    I'm going to release this system in the coming weeks, and test it out with LG Platnium members as a preview. Right now i have the website portion done and slowly adding features while i currently work on the mobile app side.

    Aim to build it in the likeness of discord, the freedom of still being ablr to have team management and players seperate is great n wit rhe lick of a button a player can be brought into the convo
