locked Re: "P" next to member name


Ro, no worries. That's not going to happen. New members will be allowed to read posts.

" M "  Will  newbie members be able to read messages anyway?
 I prefer they not see group messages until they have P status
From experience newbie members  won't bother to reply   to  the questionnaire sent to them
upon joining  because some just want  to  get the group  members emails in the forum. 

M  though they are moderated   ideally they should not be able to read the group forum or members emails
or receive group messages. until status   is  changed to P 
In my group privacy is very important and members emails is very important to them to keep private  the group private until the member
shows participation with the group.

In any kind of group, a member with the "Not moderated" override would have a 'P' next to their name.

'P' does not mean 'not M'.

There are five cases, all of which are of interest to a moderator looking at their Members list:

'P' = Override: not moderated,
'M' = Override: moderated,
'NuM' = Override: new user moderated,
'NP' = Override: not allowed to post, and of course
(blank) = Default group policy

Even in the case of a member looking at their Your Groups list, there are an irreducible three cases, if you combine the effect of group and individual settings:

'P' ~ may post without moderation,
'M' ~ posts will be moderated, and
'NP' ~ not allowed to post.

NOTE: the above meanings on the Your Groups list is a suggestion only. Currently they are implemented to exactly match your Posting Privilege in each group (the top five cases), unaltered by the group's settings. If you show no badge for a group, then you must refer to the group's settings to see how your posts would be handled.
