This was discussed about 3 years ago and there's an item on the TODO list for it, https://trello.com/c/oo1m94cl/122-tags-for-group-categorization-discovery

Hi Jonathon,
The category lists I've seen are fairly short (maybe 20-30 entries) and broad or general.   I'm not familiar with the ones you mentioned but are they similar?  IMHO, I don't think we would want a very long list of narrow or specific categories to choose from.  If the list is fairly short it would be easy to view and select a category and even 20 entries would greatly improve the ability to search and browse in the area of your interest.

What is wrong with using either Dewey Decimal or LCC categories?

Perhaps a topic for the GMF rather than this one, at least for now!

Totally agree. Lots of other group host sites have categories. We'll have to decide on a list, though.

It would be very helpful to be able to search / browse groups by category.혻 혻There are new groups on Groups.io but it is not easy to find them for a specific interest area.혻 For example I'd like to see the new groups for "Amateur and Ham Radio" that are being formed.혻 See the illustration below, I don't think there is a good way to do this currently but it seem like it would not be difficult to add.

moderated Please add hashtag requirement for calendar

Southenders Admin
 

For those groups like mine who require a hashtag on every message, can we please get a similar requirement for the calendar. Events would automatically show up in the hashtag area correctly.

A proper list then. From that post:

o Following & not Following
o Muted & not Muted
o Posted by me & Posted by [x]
  (to take the place of posterid: syntax in search)
o Replies & has no Replies
  (useful in Q&A groups, like help groups)
o Likes (by anyone) & Liked by me (& maybe is liked by [x]?)
o Locked & not Locked
o Moderated & not Moderated
o Special Notice (& not Special notice, just for consistency?)
o Edited (& not Edited)
o Attachments (& has no attachments)

> ... but we might as well make the wish list complete.

One more exotic then:

o Latest message per member & earliest message per member
  (combines well with date range filters and Posted by)

My work around is no longer an option since the third party Web-mail does not "play well"
with the messages coming from Groups.IO
All sorts of crazy things happen.

moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

  • CHANGE: For groups with reply-to set to sender, include List-Post header in single messages.
  • NEW: Delete account functionality, without having to contact support.
  • BUGFIX: In a plain text message, if someone enclosed a link in < and >, we included the trailing > in the link.
  • BUGFIX: Don't send event reminders and notices for cancelled events.
  • FIX: Fixed wording in the message visibility sections of the create group and create sub group pages.
  • CHANGE: If a wiki has a sidebar or footer, disable the 'Add a Sidebar' or 'Add a Footer' button instead of making them disappear.

Have a good weekend everybody.

moderated yahoo transfer option: NuM #suggestion

 

This is coming up at least weekly in GMF:  transferees from yahoo complain about and/or don't understand that simply setting their group to New Members Moderated will not set the members coming over from yahoo as NuM. I think a transfer option for a NuM group to the effect "set moderated members to NuM?" (with a box to check) would be very helpful.

Support questions should start with the Group Managers Forum at https://groups.io/g/GroupManagersForum/  Many of us use webmail with groups.io with no problems and someone there might have some insight.
