I'm all for Mark taking a fortnight for a vacation.

The optimistic pessimist in me says that YahooGroups is going to make a
major announcement between 20 April and 7 May, that will result in Mark
working 7/24 for at least 28 days, starting within seconds of the
announcement being made.

OTOH, the pessimistic pessimist in me sees that announcement being made
between 20 May and 25 May, to take effect immediately.

Can you please clarify, Mark? Only email addressed to me would have my email address in the footer, right? Not those written by other members.

Hi Chris,

Mark; we often come up with suggestions for changes on this forum, and it isn't always clear if those suggestions or requests are going to go on the "to do" list or not.

Can I ask that there be "Moderators Only" Hashtags showing #Pending & #Done that can be added to a topic once its merit has been assessed; this would give us clear sight of something that is now "on the list" and something that isn't. (I suppose there might also need to be a #No_Chance tag as well!)


I absolutely appreciate all the suggestions and feedback that everyone provides on beta@. You all are awesome! Sometimes (oftentimes these days) there's so much of it that I unfortunately can't get to it all and still spend time working on the site. It used to be easier, when the site was much smaller; I had time to maintain the Trello boards. I'm not complaining, mind you.

I don't know what the right answer is for acknowledging suggestions and maintaining lists and such. It needs to be lightweight enough that I don't spend a considerable amount of time on it.

At least until the end of May, I will be spending all my energy (outside of bug fixing and trying to keep up with support) on GDPR stuff. Whatever extra time there is, I will be working on adding the ability of group owners to charge subscriptions for their groups and other premium features. I want to increase Groups.io revenue so that I can hire help and really make this thing huge.

Thanks,
Mark

Sometimes I voice opinions that are not well received.

Once I had a very personalized Domain and email address that was posted to the Staff
page by the Owner on a Tech Help Listserver site. (He called it a senior moment...)

I got SPAMMED so much for years I had to give up that Domain and email address...

Using your Domain in a Group setting such as this seems like the same situation
might possibly happen.

Hi All,

For groups that are not set to Reply To Group, the Unsubscribe link in

My proposal is that, for groups that are not set to Reply To Group, that
we include a line in the footer that specifies the email address that
the person is subscribed under. I'm not a big fan of making the footer
any longer than it is already (because I already get complaints about
how long it is), but I think something needs to be added to address this
issue. Other suggestions would be appreciated as well.

But it does appear in the header. That would seem to me to be enough.

I would remove "Terms Of Service" and add “Help”

And make the footer one line like the top line that begins “View/Reply …”

Meltdown/Spectre patching #downtime

When:
Thursday, 10 May 2018
5:00am to 7:00am
(GMT-07:00) America/Los Angeles

Description:

The final patching required to protect against the Meltdown and Spectre vulnerabilities will require downtime on May 10th, starting at 5AM Pacific Time. Two hours are allocated for the downtime, but hopefully it should be completed in much less time than that.

Email sent during the downtime will be queued and sent when the site is back up.


moderated Message History table

Message history table is for me the first part of stats about groups.
I like to see:
  1. Number of topic by months
  2. Total numbers messages or topics by year
  3. Number and graph of message "+x message this week (+xx %)" " +x this yesterday (+x%)

If users are permitted to upload Files and Photos maybe somewhere a request could be made to send a message to the group+owner, giving explicit consent to sharing the content on a non exclusive, non commercial basis, before being allowed to upload.

This would require an administrator setting, similar to he moderation permission.


moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

  • CHANGE: Change the URL sort for database tables to sort by title first, then URL, then description.
  • INTERNAL: Upgraded to Font Awesome 5.
  • NEW: For premium groups, you can now lock groups/subgroups, making them read-only.
  • INTERNAL: Updated the Stripe API library.
  • CHANGE: Instead of changing the Message-ID for all recipients, we now only change the Message-ID for the original sender.
  • CHANGE: Formatting changes to the view event page for events with RSVPs.
  • BUGFIX: We didn't recognize RSS feeds that were served to us in non UTF-8 format. We now fetch feeds and specifically convert them to UTF-8 before passing them off to the feed parser.

Have a good weekend everybody.

Mark, I think you missed one. Netzero emails contain a lot of spam at the bottom. Thanks.
