With what magical kingdom suggests, you might (and in mine and many groups would) see pages and pages of the same people posting before finding the information I and Frances (and one of two others here who Liked the original suggestion) want; and you would see only active posters. You would not, importantly, have at hand a sorted list, by recent activity level or the lack thereof, of members who are INACTVE and their level of inactivity.

I think Toby’s suggestion is interesting, but for me, would not be so crucial.

I think it would be interesting to see how many members post and how many don't. If last posted date was added, and the column was clickable so I could view it by date order, I could scroll down and get a rough estimate of activity by members. I could see the join date of those who are reading but not participating, for example.

Thanks, Toby.  You say: "That got me thinking that we can add a last post date for the most recent post/reply.”

That’s what is being suggested - to the member list in Admin. Did you have another suggestion that would allow me to see members who never post or those that post just once?

I am just curious about whether our newer members ever post. We used to have a requirement that they introduced themselves. We don’t now (although I realize we can add that in). And we’ll always have a percentage of lurkers or those who post rarely.

If we have the majority of members never post, then we cease to become an active list. If they never click on reply, even once, we can’t be relevant to them.

You mention, “likes”. I don’t believe there is any way to see them.

Really what I am talking about is metrics. Ways to measure participation and engagement.

Frances,
Just want to mention there is no way to know who is 'reading' the posts, as there is no tracking of who 'opened' the email message (or viewed on the web either as far as I know). 
That got me thinking that we can add a last post date for the most recent post/reply.  But what about "Like"?  Members could read posts and "Like" them so they are interacting with the group but not necessarily posting.  Perhaps another data field of 'most recent Like' would be useful?

That’s pretty much exactly why I want it.

My suggestion is not appropriate for GMF, since it's a feature suggestion. Your suggestions don't solve the problem the feature I'm suggesting does. I think I'm done here. :)

It doesn't bother me either way. I don't need that column and most of don't
It seems you are the only one who does

And I don't think this is a subject for beta any more. Mark will decide whether or not he wants to add the field. If you want to discuss the difference between members in order of most recent post, vs. messages in order of most recent message, you should probably take it up in GMF.

In other words: What I want to see is if and when my group members have been active without having to scroll through dozens of pages of messages (and keep track of what I find) and without having to go through every member's activity log.

Because the utility of that is very limited. What you will see in the message list might be, for example, 20 posts by one or two members during the last couple of days, then a couple of pages of posts of a couple of other members, etc. In my group you would have to scroll through pages and pages to see all of the members who have posted recently, and in what order.

moderated Re: Marking members with Advanced Preferences for email delivery #suggestion

 

As a result of these statuses being shown in my groups list, I noticed that I was "R" in beta without being "F." That was a result of having previously been "F R" and then going back to receiving all messages (i.e., unchecking "following only" but forgetting to uncheck "autofollow replies").

I think that "R" should be a subcategory of "F" or "FF". I don't think it makes sense to allow it to exist on its own, because if you're receiving all messages anyway, then you're auto-following replies.

If it can be done that way - why do we need to have it listed on the membership list?
