The suggestion for an option to disable even the "Like" button has been suggested (by me) (and, ironically, was "Liked" by some people).
https://beta.groups.io/g/main/topic/28717248#19180

Even "Likes" can contribute to contentiousness.

I'll go even farther. The groups I work with go a long way to encourage people to express their thoughts on the subjects under discussion. The moderators try hard to express appreciation for everyone who takes the trouble to comment and soothe ruffled feathers when someone's opinion is put down, which is not the same as disagreement. The result is a pleasant experience for all. When someone goes rogue, there are many tools: outright bans, placing on moderation, private emails, public replies, and silence all have their place. 

I would not welcome a "dislike" option because it would make it easy to put someone down without explaining why. I see "dislikes" making moderation more difficult for groups that I enjoy.
Best, Marv

Not sure what your question is.

In Yahoogroups for groups that are set as plain text and no
attachments, any messages posted in HTML or with attachments will have
those parts stripped and this statement appended to the end.
Yahoogroups added it in the original, groups.io transferred it over as
it was complete with the statement if it was there.

Downvotes tend to cause arguments. So a "Dislike" option is yet another feature where I would ask, if it's ever provided, that there be a way for a group to disable it.

Hi Tim,

you can get a combined calendar view of the main group and all subgroups you are subscribed to using the Your Calendar option after clicking the Groups.io icon towards the top left of the browser window.

Regards,

moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

  • BUGFIX: When editing a repeating event, if no date/time changes are made, we no longer lose any RSVPs to existing events.
  • INTERNAL: Upgraded Stripe API library to the latest version as part of the work to support group payments.
  • BUGFIX: The GMT offset in the #cal-invite message would be off if the new event is on a date that has a different daylight savings than today's date.
  • CHANGE: A user's overall calendar now defaults to list view on mobile. It also respects a user's time format.
  • INTERNAL: Changed admin system to not rely on the main database for authentication.
  • CHANGED: Updated the credit card forms with newer code from Stripe.

Have a good weekend everyone.

Mark

Tim Crandall <tim.crandall@...>
 

I would like the ability to add events to a subgroup calendar and send reminders to only the subgroup members, but have the event show on the main group calendar. That way everyone in the group knows what's happening, but not everyone gets reminder messages that may not be relevant to them.

Curiously none of the 8 groups of which I am a member has (or more correctly had) set a non - elephant icon; I have just done one for the group I moderate. May I advise anyone thinking of setting one up that it has to be incredibly simple, IMHO, for the simple reason that as displayed it will be (of necessity) rather small for anything "exotic". 

I have taken the monumental liberty of attaching one suitable for this group should its owner see fit to use it. :)

There are several pages that can become the 'default' for the home page, depending on which you last visited.  The 2 you mentioned, as well as groups.io/topics and groups.io/calendar for sure and there may be others I'm not aware of, but not the bounce page.

Well, it did start as a suggestion for the feed page :) But I won't clutter up the list with stuff that isn't related to improvement suggestions.

Thanks, that idea worked for me. The feed page remains strange - it doesn't show me the last page I visited, which is usually my bounce page, but it varies randomly between the groups.io/feed and groups.io/groups.

X out. The next g.io <http://g.io> will take you back there and will continue to take you there unless you X out with the feed page open.

No, I would not mind a feed that shows messages in reverse chrono order, because a feed by definition should display elements in reverse chrono order. In fact, wish the groups.io feed were more reverse-chrono instead of displaying whole topics, which display in chrono order (oldest first). If the groups.io "feed" (which I still think would be more aptly named the "recent activity page") were to display the most recent individual messages, it would be truer to what one would expect from a feed.

All of that said, nothing about the groups.io feed bothers me because I don't use it and it's now easy to avoid. I just peek at it every so often to see what our members are seeing. :) 

As far as limiting the question to people who like feeds, I was only thinking that a more appropriate target audience for the question might be the totality of groups.io users, who may or may not be mostly of the ilk who like feeds. But with the current ability to effectively turn off the feed in favor of the groups list, that becomes mostly moot, except for new users, who may need some hand-holding in the beginning to switch).

Thanks J! So you enjoy activity feeds that you can customize a bit to suit your viewing priorities. Cool. 

Do you mind that a feed is inherently in chronological reverse order?

Anyone else have feeds they enjoy and can share what they enjoy about them? 

I didn’t mean in my question to exclude anyone who wishes to chime in - as with any topic here, we are all free to participate obviously. I guess I was trying to make the focus of the question be constructive feedback and assumed that a good starting point would be to hear from those who enjoy platforms with activity feeds.

When I went to groups.io earlier, it gave me what I thought was the feed page - a list of the groups I belong to, with the one I own on top.

When I went to groups.io/feed, it showed me the groups I belong to with the most active at the top - not a useful arrangement for me.

When I went to groups.io just now, after reading your email, I found myself with the "feed" layout.

I'm confused and annoyed at this point and glad that I don't use the web interface very much! I'll just go back to keeping the bouncing members page open in my browser and refresh that as needed. Everything else I can manage via email.

HTTPS://Groups.io is the feed page.
She remembers your last choice and you’re redirected to there.
So after g.io, if you go to Your Groups, that’s what will open next on g.io.
If you go to Topics. The next g.io will take you to topics.
BTW, setting a Mobile icon (group Admin settings) is the icon that shows up in the group feed. (Not when you use a mobile browser.)

As I have posted before. 

Why does making a suggestion automatically turn some into thinking it’s license to start a popularity poll???  

If you have something to ADD to it, or BETTER it, or something meaningful re: the suggestion then post.   

Otherwise one IS NOT necessarily required to exercise their fingers and mouse clicks, just for the sake of seeing their words in print on a screen or email.
