XF 1.3 How to do an opt-in usergroup?

    Is there any way to make it so users can opt themselves into (and out of) a usergroup? On my forum I have off-topic discussion forums that are only accessible if a member wishes to get in. In a forum software that I formerly used, I had it setup so people could just join the usergroup. With XF, the only way I've figured out to do it so far is to have members ask me and I manually place them into the usergroup. There's got to be a better way?

    Use a custom user field and a user group promotion.

    You mean, like a check box? I can set up a user group promotion that works if a check box is checked?

    Yes, there is a page for custom user field criteria when configuring a user group promotion.
