Does the word "yet" mean this might be coming down the pike? That would be awesome if it is! :)

Yes, it's definitely on the TODO list.

Right now, as evidenced by recent #changelogs, I'm focused on development of the App (and the API needed to support it). I'm paying a consulting group to build the app itself, so I need to make sure that they're always kept busy... which is keeping me busy at the moment.

Thanks,
Mark

From my own viewpoint that would be the easier option.

Once a "troublesome member" realised that they could start a topic unmoderated, but that replies were held for moderation, they might start posting replies with a slightly amended subject line in an attempt to circumvent the moderation delay.

The benefit of just moderating the individual(s) concerned is that it is totally unambiguous in its scope. Then they set up another membership in an attempt to frustrate the process... :(

moderated Re: #hashtags

 

Technotronic,
after I tagged a post with a subject with no hashtag, with one that is related, any of the following subject replies didnt tie in to the 1st subject , even with the initial post with same subject tagged.
That's because although both posts are inside the same hashtag, they have different subjects (with the first having no subject at all from what I understood).

So, as far as I could see, nothing unexpected :)

Cheers,

Oh, I see. But how often do they start topics as opposed to replying to other topics? Presumably an order of magnitude less? And if so, what would be the real downside in simply putting them on moderation?

Exactly.  If they start a new topic, everything is fine.  It's when they use reply for a post totally unrelated to the topic they've replied to (hijacking the thread) that a problem occurs.  I've got folks that do it regularly as well.  My first thought when I read Bruce's post was to moderate them constantly.  Then realized that it's only their erroneous replies that cause a problem, not new topics.

I think the recent new types (moderating all topics a person starts and moderating the first message of all topics a person starts) make sense and are useful. I don't see the usefulness of the request here, which is equivalent to putting them on moderation only for replies, not for first messages of any new topics they start.

It looks like we could add an infinite number of new moderation types for an infinite number issues, where and when should we just use the basic "Override Moderated"?

Subject: [beta] New moderation setting proposal #featurerequest

 

Some time ago (Ref: https://beta.groups.io/g/main/message/18455), new moderation settings were established for topics that a "problem subscriber" initiates, to wit:

Override: moderate the first message of every topic this person starts

Override: moderate all messages of every topic this person starts


I'd really like to be able to set a moderation override for topics that a subscriber replies to. Such a setting would allow me to head off a pernicious problem with subscribers who hijack existing topics when they should be starting a new one.

Thanks for your consideration,
Bruce


moderated Re: New moderation setting proposal #suggestion

 

Could I ask, is there any reason not to just put such members on moderation?

This may not provide the required functionality; see my #16576 of April 2018. If the requirement is for any given message (or reply for that matter) to be unambiguously from a Group Owner or Moderator then using the existing drop down is not wholly effective; the message still has the originator's personal Display Name included. I just wish my original request had achieved greater traction.

Glenn,

Need a way to send the group announcements from the owner, moderator
of a group.
Click New Topic. If you are a mod or owner the From address is a drop-list: select the group's +owner address.

I agree. I've hacked this by creating an account called [MyGroupName]Moderators and making it an owner. But it's a PITA.

 Even with the first group event we held, we experienced people who cancelled literally in the 11th hour, a couple of whom strongly requested a change of time and venue to accommodate them. I want these people waitlisted the next time they RSVP as coming to an event, and would really like to be able to do that. Without it, we're stuck letting them hold places in the next events (which are limited to small numbers of attendees) while they make up their minds.

We have similar problems, we have people either cancel at the last minute or just not even show up. We need to be able to waitlist or remove repeat offenders as many of our events our limited by the venue we are visiting. It also makes our group look bad when only half the people show up. This could be resolved if I could have moved people off the waitlist who were waiting for someone to cancel, but never do. It's very frustrating!

That's already available on the Files page.  I know it includes content in PDF files, but not sure about others.

moderated Re: option to set maximum attendees for calendar events

 

I'll go the opposite direction: would it be possible to specify a minimum number of attendees by a certain date or the event is automatically cancelled? Probably pie-in-the-sky.
