There are 3 group types.
Private groups are only visible to you. In some cases, you may toggle a group between Public and Private. In other cases a moderator my force a group of yours to be permanently private. Such as groups that contain inappropriate themes.
Public groups are visible to all members and guests. They may even be linked to from Character and Source pages.
Official Groups area little more complicated. Once you have created a group, you will have the option to "Transfer it to ACDB".
# Sub Characters
First, two important rules about sub characters.
1. Only free characters can be parent characters.
2. Only free characters can be assigned to a parent as a sub character.
A character is a free character if it is neither a subcharacter nor a parent character.
