moderated Re: Default membership to the update group

If it is an FAQ, and not being emailed, then why have them be members?   It just confuses the not-so-savvy user, which I would guess it the vast majority.


We need to remember that we, those who discuss these issues and ask these questions, are not the “normal” user.  As a moderator I think it is my job to make the system as easy to use, and require the least amount of technical expertise as possible for the end user.  What we “techies” think is either cool or interesting, or just nice to know, for the most part is unnecessary to most unless they require it to accomplish the task they are trying to accomplish.

Is it really necessary to have every user to be a member of the "Update" group?

This is beginning to become an FAQ.

The #changelog hashtag in the Updates group has the "no email" flag set. This means that one must log in and manually go to the Updates group to read it. It is not being emailed to your subscribers.

Hope this helps,
