When I delete a photo in an attachment, all of the attachments get deleted, not only the one that I selected to delete.
 
The member should be told that the photo is being removed so they don't duplicate the infraction again. Ilene

I just wonder why deleting photos in an attachment in secret is a great idea? I seems to me that if the photo a is against what the group owner wants, notifying the member would be the great idea in that it would prevent it from occurring in the future.

 

Just my thoughts,

I would like to make a suggestion for the iogroups. It would be great to be able to delete photos in attachments and not let the person who wrote the email be notified.
Also the email photo folder is really not necessary and would be great to be able to eliminate that.
So many images that are ads go in that folder. It would be nice to just have a real image in that folder. It does take up space.

These are my suggestions and if you ever do this please let me know.

Thanks

Maybe so but that doesn't do anything about a disallowed photo that's already been posted and needs to be removed. (And does this have anything to do with the feature suggestion? Am I missing something?)

If attached photos are deleted from the emailed photos album then the originator isn't notified anyway.

Also the email photo folder is really not necessary and would be great to be able to eliminate that.
Sorry, but that is simply incorrect. Having that album provides a simple way of working out what can be deleted without menaingful loss and what can't.

So many images that are ads go in that folder. It would be nice to just have a real image in that folder. It does take up space.
That is under your control! Tell your members to stop including  unnecessary images / advertisements; if your group is moderated then reject messages with "noise" in them, or remove the unnecessary images yourself in the moderation process. If your group is not moderated then advise those who clutter the place up with unnecessary images that they will be put on moderation until they stop doing it. And mean it.

My group absolutely relies on the emailed photo folder (most people email their photos rather than upload them), so if implemented, this should be an option. Please don't eliminate the emailed photos folder!

Something was broken. He should have received a (nicer) message telling him that you had claimed the subscription. That's been fixed.
 
My understanding was that only an Owner could override a Claimed Subscription Request, however a Moderator was able to override my Claim by Owner.

The claiming feature is not dependent on who is/isn't an owner.

My understanding is that it’s working as designed. Any moderator who can approve/reject subs can override.

Bug reports are supposed to go to support.

That seems to be correct and it was the problem I saw with the request for this feature (although it may serve the requestor's purposes). If you were to instead make the subgroup members into moderators of the main group, then they could carry on actual conversations with (rather than just receiving a single message from) group members via the owner address.

Changes to the site this week:
NEW: Subgroups have a new 'Allow Parent Subs To Post' settings checkbox.
Just wondering how this works. If a member of the parent group sends to a subgroup, and someone in the subgroup replies, does that reply go to the person who sent the message, or only to the members of the subgroup?

For example, say I have a parent group called Members and a subgroup called Committee. And say a member of Members@... (call him Fred) sends a message to Committee@... asking for permission to do something.

If a member of the committee replies yes or no using the default reply, presumably that reply will only go to the other members of Committee@... but not to Fred?

Cheers

Hi,

I've seen the chatter about allowing members of parent groups to post to subgroups but I'm not sure if this is working as it was maybe intended.

I have these settings for my subgroup:



If I post (via email) from a member of the parent group that is not a member of this subgroup then the message is moderated as it was before when only 'Allow Non Subscribers to Post' was set.

If I uncheck the 'Allow Non Subscribers to Post' option and post again, the message is rejected with:

groups.io gave this error:
Your email address, andy_wedge@..., is not subscribed to that group. To subscribe, send an email to temp+subscribe@xxxx.groups.io, or visit https://xxxx.groups.io/g/temp/join 

If the 'Allow Non Subscribers to Post' option is required and messages are moderated, then 'Allow Parent Subscribers to Post' on its own seems to serve no purpose as it stands.

Regards,
Andy


moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

  • BUGFIX: When a member sent a message via the group directory, they were offered the ability to use one of the group messages as a template. Now, we limit that to mods/owners only.
  • NEW: For premium groups, when viewing a pending message from a non-member, new 'Approve & Add Sender' button for owners/mods with appropriate privileges.
  • NEW: Mods/owners can now edit messages in topics that have been locked.
  • NEW: Subgroups have a new 'Allow Parent Subs To Post' settings checkbox.
  • BUGFIX: Search queries that contained a single double quote were failing because it was not properly escaped.
  • BUGFIX: Add organizer info to #cal-notice notifications.
  • CHANGE: Yahoo transfers now require a year of premium.
  • CHANGE: Reverted previous change to how notification messages are handled. Now, as originally, notification messages do not follow the group moderation setting.
  • CHANGE: Got Yahoo transfers working yet again.
  • CHANGE: For enterprise groups that have disabled signups, allow +subscribe email commands if the person already exists and is subscribed to the parent group.
  • INTERNAL: Fix issue preventing paging me when the smtp check process fails.
  • INTERNAL: Set Elasticsearch processes to automatically reboot when they crash.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Mark, it is wonderful that you figured out how to make the transfer from Yahoo work again.
We upgraded to premium and followed the transfer directions and you moved our stuff over and it was smooth as I could hope for.

Thank you!

Bob,

I assume what you mean by "Insert Picture" is the icon labeled "Add Pictures". As to why I would prefer to just be able to paste, here's a ship showing what icon I am referring to.



That took a few seconds to take a snip with the Windows 10 snipping tool and would have only needed a control-V to get it into the message, but that does not work.

So, what I have to do is get the snipping program to save the image to a temporary file. Then I have to use the "Add Pictures" icon to navigate to that file and import it. Then when I am finished with the post, I have to go back to wherever I stored the temporary picture and delete it.

Actually, today's experience was even worse than that, because apparently, the png format that the new Windows 10 Snip & Sketch program uses won't import at all, so I had to open it with IrfanView and save as a jpg before finally getting it into the post using "Add Pictures".

In any case, I have documented the issue and opened a support case.

The Insert Picture tool is right .......................above the x.......................X...
Since a tool is provided to do this exact function, why ever do you  wish to copy and paste?  The above uses the picture tool on the edit message bar directly above the message you are composing at your group within groups.io
I think that you could really mess up the code underlying your message by pasting an image from the clipboard and so it's most likely inhibited.
