Re: users complaining
I whole heartedly agree with @dennis_h about the forums being the group default tab/group landing page. I honestly don’t even understand the point of having both group forums and group activity streams. It’s very confusing. On my site, I’ve done the little hack found here in the support forums to make groups open directly onto the group’s forum, and put a conditional around the group activity stream post box so that only group admins can even see it.
