Mark,

I'm always blown away by these messages of yours. I'm sure that nobody here can imagine yahoo groups telling people that yahoo will be down for several hours, let alone several minutes, let alone give advance warning at all. 😊 

Thanks and looking forward to a couple minutes of cat pics!

Hi All,

I've been notified by Linode that they will be rebooting one of our critical machines tomorrow, Monday 1/15. The downtime will happen some time within a 2 hour window, starting at 11PM Pacific Time (Tuesday 1/16 at 7AM UTC). I expect the downtime to last only a couple of minutes.

Email sent during this time will be queued up and sent when we are back on-line.

Thanks,
Mark

moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

  • SYSADMIN: Added a second load balancer for redundancy.
  • CHANGE: Changed subdomain SPF records in an attempt to track down Outlook spoofing warning message.
  • SECURITY: Fixed a case where an attacker could confirm an email address that didn't belong to them.
  • BUGFIX: When replying to a digest in an enterprise group, we sent back the wrong error message.
  • NEW: Groups now have a default timezone, for new members.
  • NEW: The API now returns various counts on the group object.
  • CHANGE: Switch default poll response view to the answer table.
  • BUGFIX: When viewing tables on mobile devices, the specified column widths were being ignored.
  • BUGFIX: Changed the subject lines of event notifications to use a dash instead of comma, which was breaking hashtag processing.
  • CHANGE: Made invite address parsing smarter to catch some common formatting mistakes.

Have a good weekend everybody.

moderated Outage report #outage

 

Hi All,

The Groups.io site was unreachable for 20 minutes this morning, between 3:03am and 3:23am Pacific Time. Linode, our hosting service, has to reboot all instances in their fleet as part of a process to address the Meltdown and Spectre bugs. I was notified yesterday that two of our instances would be rebooted between 3-5am. One of the instances is our main load balancer, so I knew there would be a service interruption, but since it was just a reboot, I figured it would be less than a minute, and in the middle of the night, and some time within a 2 hour window. So I didn't send out a note. I should have. I do not know why it took them 20 minutes of downtime to reboot the machine; the other instance was shutdown and rebooted immediately.

I will be adding another load balancer today to provide redundancy and prevent that from being a single point of failure in the future.


Thanks,
Mark


moderated disallow PMs by moderated members #suggestion

 

I'm not sure this is possible, but if it is, it would be great to disallow private responses by moderated members. We have some posting requirements in our group, and sometimes a member on moderation for violating the requirements gets around it by PM'ing people. (I know that one solution would be for our group to disable private responses, but we can't do that because we want conversations on certain subjects to be carried out offlist, and we have hashtags coded for that. Unfortunately, if we code hashtags for private reply and disable private reply in the group, the hashtag does not surmount the restriction and the message bounces with a hideous error message...something I reported awhile back and have had no news about...) So because email often has its own mind, I'm not sure this is possible but it would be very helpful.

Hi Matthew, if you go to your Groups..IL profile, there is a place in there to change your email address. It is under the word account. After you click on your name. Once you click change email, it will send you a confirmation email to the new email address once you’ve typed it in and saved it. Then you’ll just click the link or reply to it confirm.

Changing your email address

Log into Groups.io

If you don't have a password already, you can create one from the main Groups.io page, or use one of the other options - Facebook, etc. See instructions above.

Then on the homepage for our group, click on our name in the top right corner. Choose Account. Change email address there.

For more help, see the wiki on Group Managers Forum:

Can you not just change the email address on your groups.io account?
