Thanks, Duane- I missed that. But I have tried a few regex in my group's search box and they don't work. There is probably some special syntax but I haven't been able to find any information. Anyone know?

It shouldn't keep them from moving, they'd just have to do everything manually.  My groups also 'moved' about 4 years ago, but we decided to start mostly fresh, so very little from Yahoo was needed.  Even with our fairly small number of users, we could have collected enough donations to pay $110 for a one year upgrade if we had wanted everything copied for us.

This part I can try to answer.  Yes, in order to be a member of a subgroup, they must be members of the main group.  Otherwise, subgroups are pretty much independent of groups and have all of their own settings.

They may not cover all of the details, but there are a couple of good helper pages for subgroups at https://groups.io/g/GroupManagersForum/wiki/Why-use-a-Subgroup and https://groups.io/g/GroupManagersForum/wiki/Subgroups.

Sadly that will mean that many groups who cannot afford the cost of
premium will be discouraged from moving to GIO. All my own groups moved
long ago but there may be many caught out by this change. I assume even
if they do later downgrade the initial payment is non refundable or
have I misunderstood?

If I already have a premium account for one of my groups, and if I want to export a few more and make them subgroups, do I still have to pay for the transfers?

And, with subgroups, must all the members of the subgroup be a part of the main group?  And, is there a detailed explanation of how subgroups work available.

Thanks,

Mark, I don't think I am one of those eight but my plan has been to pay for the year Premium all along.
So unless I hear otherwise I'll start the transfer process and pay tomorrow.

This is great news.

They won't be in for a surprise as Mark said he is going to Grandfather them in so those 8 groups won't have to pay.

moderated Yahoo Group exports

 

Hi All,

I had a bit of a brainstorm today and after some work, figured out how to make Yahoo Group exports work once again.

I'm going to make a change in the process however. For new groups requesting a transfer, I'm going to ask that they pay for a year of premium up front (they can of course downgrade after that). There are 8 groups that gave the go ahead to transfer between the time that transfers stopped working and when I took down the transfer page. I will grandfather them and not require they pay the year of premium.

I will set this up either tomorrow or Wednesday and send another notice then. If you are one of the 8 groups that gave the go ahead but have changed your mind for whatever reason, please contact me. I won't transfer those groups until Wednesday.

Questions, comments?

Thanks,
Mark

Despite not using the word "invite," I understand... and my comments referred to subgroup moderators with NO PERMISSION to add to the main group.

Hi Jim,
Since members of a subgroup must be a member of the main group, a subgroup moderator with no permission to add to the main group should not be able to add a member to the subgroup.

Can we clarify the terminology here. Subgroup moderators (with the right permissions) have been able to Direct Add members from the main group membership list. The new feature allows them to invite members.

to add members to the main group ONLY by adding them to the subgroup,

This is what the invite at subgroup level achieves as by accepting a subgroup invite, a user is also added to the main group.

Adding this to the message composition window would also have the benefit of being readily visible when composing online replies, not just new topics.

In short, I like it.

Something I've been hoping to add as an optional integration at some point:
https://www.perspectiveapi.com
With options like being able to automatically moderate any posts it thinks are toxic, or put up warning signs to people about to post such topics. Not sure how well it works, and it'd be optional of course....

I prefer to deal with problem posters via actively managing my groups. Posters who are repeatedly offensive simply get tossed.

My email client has an option called MoodWatch. If turned on - which it isn't - it warns of harsh language before sending as well as in incoming messages... including calling Richard by his preferred nickname. As a tool for bringing bad behavior to my attention it's far more trouble than it's worth.
