On our groups, I'm known for finding things that don't want to be found. Looks like it works here, too. ;>)

Thanks,

I just changed it from User to Name.

Yipes. I have checks in the code to prevent this kind of thing, but you found the one place that wasn't protected. I've fixed that, and will delete that group.

Gack! That's some dusty code. I've fixed the URLs and subgroups will no longer be displayed.

Hi

Facebook just has 1 hour. No date or time.
If you put time, I guess you need to put the initials of the time zone!
Would you need to select this when you set up your group?

Since Compare Revisions is the only action available with the Revisions

Good idea. I've just pushed this change for both message revisions and wiki page revisions.

locked Re: Group archive visibility (was Find Group listing) #suggestion

 

I've started dating my Yahoo! Group's description any time I make a change
to it. That way anyone stumbling upon it in the directory is able to see
that it was under active human control within the past few weeks. But
that's more of a Yahoo! Groups problem than one I'd expect to find here.


locked Date/Time on messages #suggestion

Duane
 

It's probably just me, but I'd prefer to see a Date/Time on messages, whether in the site Inbox or in a group's archives, instead of X minutes ago or Y days ago. Seems to make it easier for me to keep things straight.

How do others feel?

locked Remove moderation from new users #suggestion

Duane
 

I think the "approve message and remove moderation" button should also appear on the pending posts page.  I don't have a pending message at the moment, so don't remember the exact wording.  As it is now, I have to click on the message title before that option shows up.


Thanks,

Duane

I think I've found a couple more little gremlins. When I look at my profile, I see the public groups that I'm subscribed to. I also see a subgroup I created that's in a private group, with the letter M after it. None of the private groups themselves show up. The subgroup is public to the parent group.

locked Update on IO Progress

Nightowl >8#

Hey all,

Just want to update a few things I had started and haven't finished in regard to this site.

First, I've finally read every message, but only replied to a few. Some others need a more detailed reply that requires my being able to think harder, so I am trying to respond to those tomorrow...(knock on wood). So I'm not ignoring anyone who posted in response to any of mine, I'm just not quite caught up.

Second, I have not had a chance to invite a lot of people over here yet, but I am still working on that. I've started rebuilding my team, (still some to get over here yet), and they are helping me with research and explanation. That is important for us to be able to relay the right info to the people who want to know what is available in Groups.io.

Last, I have not done a lot of publicizing of the site yet, for the same reason I have not been able to answer all replies. But I intend to spread the word about it, and still intend to talk to some of my media contacts and see if we can get Mark more publicity.

I want to end this post by saying that I am no less dedicated to the Yahoo Crusade issue and Groups issues, and that the Crusade isn't just to get Yahoo to change, it's more about Fight, Fix or Flee. Fighting Yahoo has about lost. Fixing Groups, well, they don't seem to be listening to us anymore.

That leaves "flee Yahoo" and this is looking like just the place to do that.  If you want to know more about the crusade and it's three parts, check out our group:

https://groups.io/org/groupsio/MMsanctuary/archives

Or our Blog: https://modsandmembersblog.wordpress.com/

And if anyone wants my attention about anything and I don't appear to be actively posting, go here for my status:

https://groups.io/org/groupsio/owlperch/archives

Or you can post here or E-mail me directly with "Hey Owl, or Attention Owl" in the subject.

I won't post this info in Beta again unless someone directly asks me. But I want you to know that my absence of posting in here does not mean I'm not still as dedicated as ever to find our groups a new home, because I am.

Thanks,

Brenda

I have only one private group on here and haven't even gotten it started beyond creating it.. I have another public one anyone can read or join:

https://groups.io/org/groupsio/MMsanctuary/archives

Abnd another public one anyone can read, but it's for the leaders & assistants of the Yahoo crusade and is invitation only, for the most part.

locked Auto-Login On Invite

 

I have mixed feelings on this, so I thought I'd type it all out and see what happens.

I noticed when someone invited me to a group, I got the email notice as expected.  I was not already logged in to Groups.IO.  When I clicked on the link to join the group, I was automatically logged in, so didn't have to type my password or anything.

This is nice in one sense, as it makes it easy to join groups in response to invitations.  One complaint over at Yahoo Groups is that some people can't figure out how to manage invitations, why is why they're always asking for the direct add feature back.  I assume here at Groups.IO, that if an invited person didn't already have an account set up, that person would be guided through the process, upon clicking the link, right?

And then there are the concerns.  I usually don't like links that assume you're the recipient of the mail beyond any doubt, because emails get forwarded to other people, who then click on the links, and the site treats them as the original user.  For the more paranoid among us, links in emails are also visible to the people who run the mail server, and mail is frequently transmitted without encryption to anyone who is watching.  If I wanted to attack someone's Groups.IO account, and I had a way to see the email being sent to them, I could create a group, invite that person to it, then use that invite link to break into the account.

Is that likely to happen in real life?  Probably not.  Which is why I have mixed feelings about it.  I would have felt safer if I had been forced to log in with a password, though.
