err..no. it removes everything under the last unindented line, and If I had my way this would be the standard - as it supports traditional quoting in "usenet" and most decent discussion-lists.
I’m not sure what the difference in the end result is. Ideally our users would reply in a format similar to this post but they are either unable to do so or unable to learn. PS, the way the indenting works on the plain text digest (?) the one space indent is not particularly obvious.


If people put their comments/answers UNDER the relevant/respective pieces of quote, there is no problem.
That requires people to adapt to the software and not vice versa. This is the tail wagging the dog.


Is it possible to change
groups.io digests so they mirror Yahoogroups behaviour?
What behaviour do you mean exactly? Sending along the entire message replied to, and the one that replied to, and the one before that?
That would not be practical


That is what Yahoo Groups’ digests do now, so not ‘impractical’. Shal mentioned in another message a limited quote function. The first previous message, or a set number of lines would provide enough context for a non-quoting reply.
i concede that that this does not seem to be a big problem elsewhere but I thought I would ask :)

That would be a good solution. How do I support this?

If I understand it correctly, this works for allpoting types bar web interface non-quoting replies.
Thanks for your reply.

moderated Re: AOL problem

 

I'm glad Linda said it: this emperor has no clothes. There is just no real problem here. None of the few members who have been removed have complained or asked for an explanation: they click on the resub link or they don't. In some cases, as I've said, I resub them myself if I know they're active members. The incidents are very few and far between.

I don't know exactly how this solution without a problem got started, but I, too, would urge no change.

Hi Folks,

Occasionally I see a member leave and rejoin. With 2400 members, the
current system seems to be working perfectly. I've never had to explain
what is going on - they get it. Some of them don't learn the first time,
but they "lather, rinse, repeat" all on their own, as it should be. I'm not
looking for additional administrative work. Please don't change a thing.

And for the record, I love the cats!

Paul,

Groups.io digests strip out the message that is replied to, so in our
test group this led to nearly unintelligible digests. Is it possible
to change groups.io digests so they mirror Yahoogroups behaviour?
I've wished for limited quoting in digests. By limited I mean just the direct quote (first-level) and not the quotes that quote drags in. One of the defects of the Y!Group digest is that it can get unreadable when a message quotes a message and that message quoted prior messages, and so on.
https://beta.groups.io/g/main/message/1433

Later I proposed a snippet of the quoted message, rather than the whole quote, might provide sufficient context in the majority of cases. That is probably simpler to implement than my prior suggestion (so more likely to be implemented). It would also have the benefit of being briefer, keeping the Digest more readable.

block) for all users except those who reply via the web interface
without quoting the message they are replying to.

“Educating” our users is unlikely to produce the required result.
That is the bane of all email systems. Well, maybe all systems.

Ok, but I thought the list was for purposes of users to check whether or not they might be affected, in which case you’d want to explicitly include those.

Of course his original complaint was that as things stand one cannot download the Past members at all - he has to screen-scrape them.
Shal, there is currently no way to download Past members unless one copies each page separately.
And that becomes an ever growing issue.
You idea of adding additional User Status values would handle it nicely.
J, Sorry if I there is a misunderstanding about this.

moderated Re: Download Members only works on Members

 

J,

I haven’t been following this thread but would be strongly against
keeping past members in the member list, lumped together with the
current members, if that’s what’s being suggested.
Only in the Download table, not in the displayed lists.

The members who have "Left" or "Spam Left" (or removed by any other means) would be distinguished from active members by one or more of the Status column enumerations.

The idea is that someone who is managing their membership off-site in a spreadsheet or database application would then have a single table in which they could find any member, past or present. For some of the things Bob wanted to track that would be much more convenient than downloading the "Past" members separately.

Of course his original complaint was that as things stand one cannot download the Past members at all - he has to screen-scrape them.
