Server: Wildfire 2.4.4. Client: Gaim 1.5.0
Everything works fine, given that this is a private network, and that there’'s no outside use of Gaim. All users see all other users, and everybody is automatically inserted into a single group when they are added as a new user. This means that each Buddy List in Gaim is populated with the entire list of characters.
However, I have some people that would a) prefer to stay out of everyone else’'s buddy list, or b) be selectively seen by a particular group (say, department managers, instead of by warehouse employees). What is an effective way to accomplish this?
The first thought I came up with said to make different groups, and have some people added to different groups. But then I ended up with multiple appearances of the same user in each different group, which became very confusing to end users.
I guess some pointers on group distribution would be very helpful. Thanks!
