Great idea. It might even be useful in moderated groups, unless the
posts require approval.

this could be very useful in unmoderated groups, so that mods can know they
can reply on members to flag stuff that needs attention, violates

Roy, It's figleafed because this is a public group with public archives. 

I would suggest you contact the support address for groups.io instead of posting someone's private contact info here.

It's ironic that the need for figleafing in a public group has finally, by this example, made very concrete to me. This is a public group, and now that person's email address has been blasted to the world at large.

My preference, too, but I was assuming there was some logistical reason for not including the old name.

Actually, it would only need to say "from [old display name]", because the new display name is already at the beginning of the sentence.

I'm thinking of capping it at 10 groups per account. Thoughts?
Coming into the conversation really late.

I used to (^1) moderate roughly 25 lists on YahooGroups, that revolved
around a single software program. Other than the off-topic list, and the
flame list, they revolved around a specific program, with each list
focusing on a specific use-case or target audience.

If I didn't understand how sub-groups worked, and wanted to migrate them
to Groups.IO, I'd probably make 25+ lists, all in a single day.
As it is, I can't tell if the import group process offered by Groups.IO
is able to import each YahooGroup, into a sub-group.

If a cap on groups is imposed, include at least a dozen completely
different scenarios describing how sub-groups replaces the need for
additional groups. If the import process can import multiple existing
groups, into the appropriate sub-group, describe that process within the
scenarios.

One area that sub-groups might not work in, is when the
existing/proposed groups use different languages for communication
purposes.


^1: Roughly six years ago, the lists migrated to a web forum. I didn't
delete them, and they are, for all practical purposes, defunct.

J,

Another option, if possible, would be to say instead "changed display
name from [old display name] to [new display name]."
Far and away this would be my preference.

Then put that in your group rules and enforce those.  That is in your purview.

You require a degree of responsiveness from your members that is very degree typical and if people sign up with those expectations made explicit you have grounds for enforcement.

Speaking strictly for myself I would not consent to this degree of scrutiny nor requirement for responding. That's not dinnertime I feel you have the right to demand but if you do and someone consents that's on them if the expectations are explicitly a condition of membership. Expecting this implicitly is unreasonable in an online forum.

Ok, I'm back in. LOL.

Think about the practicalities, then. A user is ignoring a mod and we don't know it. They don't respond to that mod's latest piece of advice. So we don't know whether they haven't read or just haven't received it. Do we (I or another mod) then ask, "Did you see xyz [mod]'s post to you just now, about taking him off the drug?" and they don't answer that, because they haven't seen that, either.

This can really go from bad to worse in a very short amount of time, leading to the mods group having to discuss the member, what to do about their non-responsiveness, etc., and most likely ending with the problem member being removed. Better to nip it in the bud and not allow them to ignore mods in the first place.

Our group is our living room. Being a guest in our living room means you have to be polite. Being polite means acknowledging the existence of your hosts.

Period.

 And, as sad as I am to say it, both of these positions are untenable.  The orders of removal between these situations really cannot be overstated.
