I've been reading it in my head "groups eye oh." That's easy. I'd stick with that.

Of those I'd choose "groups eye oh" - "groups eee oh" sounds a little too Italiano to me, or too much like like the diminutive "oopsy-oh".

It could be groups eye oh. Or maybe groups eee oh. Or maybe something

whofanvidme,

How do you pronounce groups.io?
Hmm... I've been saying "Groups dot eye oh", which is sometimes a mouthful. With time (and in context) just "Groups" will work.

On the silly side, we could shorten it to "Grio" rhymes with Rio (de Janeiro).

Frances:  In YahooGroups, messages sent to the owner address are emailed to the owner and moderators.  They are not posts and do not appear anywhere on the web site.  I believe that is as it should be.  I think it's a good idea to have a separate email address for owners-only and one for owners and mods.

Ronaldo:  People who use web mail can copy and paste the owner address into the TO: line.

 Hi,

"groups dot eye oh" works for me, spelled Groups.io - unless it's a headline (GROUPS.IO).

Heh, I was wondering when someone would ask that. Actually, I don't know. It could be groups eye oh. Or maybe groups eee oh. Or maybe something else. What do you all think?

I think just normal capitalization. I started with the idea that it'd be all caps, GROUPS.IO, but decided that was a bit too ostentatious.

And is there an official spelling of it in terms of what should be capitalized (GROUPS.IO vs Groups.io)?

I am a moderator only, not owner. I think that being able to contact the owner only is useful.

That being said, being able to contact a moderator might be useful too. In YahooGroups a member can send in a regular post that automatically is seen by the moderators.  That would probably happen here too - it would go into Messages, wouldn't it?

That's a setting in your browser. You need to set it to whatever your
default email is. Or, change your PC's default email setting to your
webmail.

Ronaldo,

We could configure it to point back to groups.io, and have it use our webmail client to send a message to the owners. But you'd still have to log into groups.io to do that. Would that be better than what's there now?

Thanks,
Mark

Would that be possible/programmable?

Ronaldo,

The group home page, at https://groups.io/org/groups.io/GROUPNAME is always viewable, even for people not logged in, and that contains the group description. The invite emails themselves should probably include the group description. I've added that to the todo list.

Thanks,
Mark

locked Site #changelog

 

Changes pushed to the site today:

- Fix for search on groups message page, and fixed an HTML escaping issue with the search indexes.
- Tweaked snippets in group search to show more of the group description.
- Links in digests to reply to messages now require the user to be logged in, and they display the reply box by default now.
- Switched to a different HTML editing widget that works better, especially for paragraphs and blank lines.
- Improved error messages on group post.

thank you for your reply.
I have changed the settings on the group to private archives.

I have 3 computers, the hairdos are cut off on all 3 including the Apple.  To my knowledge, my screens are not zoomed, however, hopefully anyone else looking at our home page will be able to see it all.

Hi Cherrill,
Publicly viewable Archives can be seen by the public-at-large.  If you want to confine viewing to the members of your group, you will have to show that you understand that the decision is irrevocable. 
A cover photo at 900 x 300 will fit correctly IF you do not have your screen zoomed to make it easier to read.  In other words, the photo will not adjust to the adjustment you make for your individual viewing habits.  Try zooming out and you will not have the hairdos cut off.Hope that helps,
Linda

P.S.  Please use more specific words for you Subject.  "Question" doesn't help at all.  Thanks.

Good point! I've changed it so that if clicking the Reply link from a digest (all digests from now on, since it's a slightly different URL), it will make sure you're logged in first. It will also open the reply box and set focus to it.

Thanks,
Mark

It would be useful if it brought you to a login screen if you weren't already logged in, then you can login and then go to the specific message. Each message does have its own URL, so this should be possible!

locked question

Cherrill <cdjamieson@...>
 

Under Privacy on  our new group, we have a choice of Listed in Directory, publicly viewable archives or private archives.  

Does publicly viewable archives mean that all the people on the group can view the archives or that every single person who has a group on groups.io can view the archives.  

I would like the archives to be viewable only to our members; but it gives me a warning each time I click on that one that it is not reversible.  

Secondly, we are having a bit of trouble with our cover photo.  We think we have it at 900 x 300 but its cutting off the hairdos of the ladies.  Can you offer some advise on how to get it the correct size??

thank you

Mark,

You cannot reply to digests on groups.io, the replies are blackholed
(ideally they should bounce back; it's on the todo list).
In Yahoo Groups the "Fully featured" digests each message has a mailto: link that allows one to reply to that message. The mailto: URL syntax allows them to provide To, Subject, and even body text, but I don't know that it could allow the placement of a In-Reply-To or other arbitrary field.

The other option for the reader of a digest is a link to reply via the web site. That brings one to the message in the archive, possibly with the reply compose window already open. That could work, as the normal reply would have the necessary field.
