moderated Site updates #changelog


Changes to the site this week:

  • CHANGE: Previously, we would force a digest to be created at 10:30pm Pacific Time nightly, if one had not been generated in the previous 6 hours and messages had been sent to the group since the last digest. Now, we force a digest to be created at 6AM local time for each subscriber, based on their timezone, if a digest had not been generated in the previous 6 hours and messages had been sent to the group since the last digest.
  • CHANGE: When creating a new group or changing the name of an existing group, change the error message when the group name is already taken to That address is not available..
  • CHANGE: Hardcode some IP addresses associated with because reverse DNS lookups on them fail randomly.
  • BUGFIX: The command to update whether a topic was locked/moderated/etc in the search index was failing because the syntax changed between Elasticsearch versions. Fixed the command and re-indexed the message archive.
  • BUGFIX: When joining a new group, the membership parameters could not be modified from that page.
  • INTERNAL: Upgraded to Go 1.14 compiler.
