Agree with Helen except that I’d call it a minus, not a zero.

I would suggest “Recent Activity ” and move the “view all” right next to that.

My suggestion is to not change any more DEFAULTS that could reasonably be left alone, especially if it affects a large number of users.

Can you be more specific? Which defaults?

Thanks,

moderated Re: Feed view now the default

 

I'm suggesting an account option "order feed by activity" or "order feed by alphabetical order."

I agree. Things are past the stage where really major changes are palatable, especially if they’re unnecessary. Groups.io is more at the ‘if it ain’t broke don’t redesign the whole thing’ stage.

I agree, I like it.  It's only one extra click to go to the /groups view.  Very nice!

Thank you Mark! I think it's great.

I can really see the benefit of this for members of groups, and personally I think it's really helpful for me to put my admin habits aside and view things from the POV of newbie users/members.

I get as an admin - that initial feeling of walking back in to room and things have been moved around, but they really haven't  - the "your groups" page is still there intact and we can admin from there. Hopefully on mobile ( and then the app) there might be a solution to getting there that's as easy as a nav bar icon - but a bookmark added to homescreen is pretty darn easy too.

I'll take that for the added benefit of knowing that newbies can jump in and get a sense of what's going on in a chronological order in the groups they have chosen to be in - rather than what we had before.

I am enjoying seeing activity in groups that I generally don't look at much ( either because I don't moderate them or they are unmoderated) pop up in my feed.
I love the way it moves - exactly as a feed should - along with passing time.

Thank you for moving things forward.
Looks great! feels good.

If you read the description of the ask, rather than just the title, I think it’s clear.

I’m not enjoying seeing activity in groups I have minimal interest in. And groups I want to see are now moving targets.

First, it ‘not being bad’ is your view. At least two of us so far - me and Duane - prefer the old way. 

Second, it’s a mischaracterization to say you ‘don’t have to look at it if you don’t want to.’ It is now the groups.io home page and is what users see upon logging in.

My suggestion is to not change any more DEFAULTS that could reasonably be left alone, especially if it affects a large number of users.

After being given a timeout for bad behaviour earlier today, I came back from supper today only to find user complaints about the new change. My worst day since I first came to Groups.io, but I still love it.
