moderated Re: email addresses for suggesting features offlist from beta #suggestion


 

People don’t seem to understand that this is not GMF. It’s not the job of a suggester here to educate the rest of the group on all past threads, or all related current features, or even to make sure every member of beta understands the suggested feature, even members very new to groups.io who lack familiarity with the product. It’s only their job to suggest features and improvements.

As you seem to have been on the beta group for some time you could help eliminate some of that discussion with a single post pointing people to previous topics on the same subject. If a topic starts to move to a general discussion on an existing feature then a suggestion that it should be moved to GMF would a) cut the traffic down on this group and b) remind people that there's another source of information that they can use.

It's only exhausting if you let it become so.

I'm with Gerald and Barb on this one.
