You would do that as Jeremy said, in post https://beta.groups.io/g/main/message/14667 Here's a step by step:

1. Go to the calendar page
2. Click on the event that is wrong
event opens in a new window/page
3. Scroll to the bottom of the event and click on Edit Event
event editor opens in a new window/page
4. Scroll to the bottom of the event and click on Delete Event
5. It will ask if you're sure, so you would click Yes

The event should now be gone. Once you have completed step 3, you could also edit the information for the event to correct the mistake insterad of starting over. If you do edit, be sure to click Update Event at the bottom of the page.

You can't delete a calendar, only the events shown on it, individually.

While I am prepared to be be contradicted by someone with more expertise, I do not believe that it is possible to delete (as distinct from disable) the calendar other than by deleting your group: as I understand it there is (and can be) only one per group, that comes as feature for you to use (or not) by adding individual events, at specific times and dates, which can be deleted, as I have described.  

At the moment we seem to have a comprehension gap over calendars and events such that I do not see how I can say anything more of use.

Sad face. I found subscribe to event or add to event but not where I can delete the calender

 

Do you mean '+Event' and 'Subscribe to Calendar'? Those are on the 'Calendar' page.
You need to navigate from that to the 'View Event' page, by clicking on the event (the incorrect one) in the Calendar - it may be easier to find if you click 'List' (view) at top right of page.
Then you should see the Edit Event button - below the details of the event, use that to get to the 'Edit Event' page - the 'Delete Event' button is on that page (well hidden! - not exactly the obvious place)

While I can see where you're coming from, that (only be allowed on groups that aren't in the directory (totally private)) is not a limitation that I would worry about. While they may or may not be sensible, I can think of scenarios where a group owner would want a visible group that people can't join. Writing in a restriction is going to frustrate people (some, some where, some time) does not seem to be a good use of effort...

I think what's an ad, vs. what's information (and the two can obviously intersect), is part of the issue. But I was about to suggest just the above. Moderators can edit posts however they see fit. Currently, some groups trim trailing posts, for example. That, like this issue, falls into the category of text that the sender left in a message and did not delete on their own. But they sent it consciously - to what degree they were conscious of it you can debate. But they were at least given an opportunity - real-time, not in some obscure setting that they'd need to go in and change - to be aware of it, since it was visually there in their draft. I think we're going around in circles and I will try to stop responding.

I'd suggest that if this is added, it only be allowed on groups that aren't in the directory (totally private). Otherwise, it sort of defeats the reason for having the group listed.

Anyone can remove any of the ads, whether seen or not. I don't want free advertising to be used on my groups, regardless of the source or "reasons". As Bob B. mentioned, I don't think it will be long before the auto-sigs are longer than the messages, at the current trends. If Mark doesn't automatically remove them, they still won't be allowed on my groups.

moderated Feature request: disable signups/applications #suggestion

James Milligan
 

I'd like to request a new option for group owners - to disable any/all signups for a group.

I see two scenarios for this:
  1. Where membership is controlled through the API or another method (e.g. Slack), and you don't want to allow members to join outside of this process.
  2. Where you already know who is going to be in the group, so any requests to join will either by spam or just unwanted.
TIA!

That's a good point. But I still think the fact that they don't see it visually, and they can't modify it, makes for an important qualitative difference in the two situations.

You quote the example of a user wanting to brag about his iPhone and
hence wanting the signature. The same can be said for the Avast 'ad' in
that some users know that Avast adds this (even though they don't see
it in their compose window) and think it is a good thing since it tells
the recipient that the email has been scanned and found free of
viruses. That surely was the original idea behind the AV line. Removing
the AV line without their permission may be considered by them a bad
idea (although personally why should I trust that an email is clean
just because of a few words of text anybody could have put in it.)

I am really not too worried about this in any of my groups though
clearly some on here are.

Because who is to know what the sender's intent was? Even leaving aside
the recipient's end, the sender may want to communicate they're sending
from their phone (whether iPhone or other) because of the spelling
shortcuts, emoticons, typos (no, let's not go there again about typos -
these are just examples), etc. Or they may actually WANT to be bragging
that they're using an iPhone. Or they themselves love the iPhone and the
tag. Who knows. I think what the sender sends is what should be
received. The sender does not send the anti-virus ads. The sender does
send the iPhone sig. Removing things from an email that the sender CAN
SEE and could remove IF THEY WANTED TO is a very, very slippery slope.

In other words, think this is the qualitative and very important difference. You can argue that they "send" both, but visually, they don't. They never see the AV ads.

I view "sent from my Iphone", and others like it that are specifically put in by the OS or the hardware manufacturer and requiring  specific removal by the user of the device as blatant advertising.  It's very much akin to forcing a person to specifically opt out instead of opting in to a "feature" that is designed as an advantage for the owner of the form rather than the  person filling it out.
As such, the great majority of the users of these devices who are non-technically adept (older, etc) don't even know they are optional and to kill it they must take positive action.

Pretty soon these tag lines will start getting longer, including the specific OS, hardware, memory card, processor chip, keyboard manufacturer and, to top  it all off, conclude or begin with the country of (final) manufacturer.
And the tag lines will take more space than the message content.

Advertising has its place and it isn't in messages sent from devices bought and paid for by individuals.

Absolutely agree.

If the sender has modified it, I'm OK with passing tha tthrough.
I think it should be passed through even if they haven't modified it. Not modifying it is a form of modifying it: it's the form of "I am leaving this alone because I want it to be there." Some people may want to make sure people know they sent the message from their iPhone, for whatever reason (I can conjure up lots of them).

I think anything the sender sees on their screen should be left alone. Anything they don't see should be removed. No surprises. Text the sender sees should be sent.
