moderated Re: Enable membership-editing capability in group-profile page for ADMINS as well #suggestion


Exactly. It’s intuitive to click on the display name snd go to the membership page. Not to the dead-end of a (useless) profile snd then hand to go back and start over.

The reason I reject Christos’s solution to this problem - snd it IS an ongoing problem IMHO - is that mods should not be able to edit a member’s *profile*.

There really, really should be a fast snd efficient way to get not just to the member page but to all the member’s posts (a related current PITA). After six years of running a group here, these two hassles continue to hound snd confound me in nearly a daily basis. They should be fixed. Since the fix does not appear simple, at least that I can see, I believe a redesign is in order.

If someone posts a message and I want to change something related to this person's membership, such as moderation restrictions, it's silly to have to go through all these steps to be able to put a member on moderation or even take them off moderation. It seems like it would be intuitive to be able to click on the person's name and go to their membership page to change their abilities or to change their display name. When I'm searching for a person, it's not to find out what they've posted in the past. And for a group that may not have a membership list visible to members it's even more useless. I use message search for that.
