moderated Re: Downgrading to monthly billing overcharges #bug

 

Question unrelated to your issue: how is yearly to monthly payment a downgrade? I have been paying monthly (legacy $10) since forever and (mostly out of laziness) have never switched to yearly. I waa never aware there was any difference in features. Is there, since you’re calling it a downgrade?

In response to an inquiry in GMF, I downgraded my plan from Premium yearly (legacy $110) to Premium monthly for our group ias-indy. I did this on the premise that the downgrade would not actually occur until my paid-up plan period was completed.

Imagine my surprise when not only did the downgrade happen immediately, when I switched back I was immediately charged another $220!

Please refund my $220 and reinstate me into the Premium yearly legacy plan to expire April 24, 2021.

Thanks,

Nope. It looks like she sent it directly to the group after being approved, for some reason. But good to know.

Was it from a btinternet.com address? Under some circumstances btinternet.com strips the +owner part of the address and the message gets sent to the group instead.

Mark, forget about it. I had received a response to a pending member notice in that group ,which normally would just be an owner email, but for some reason it had actually posted it to the group. So it was a group message. I just ran a test of sending an owner email to the group myself and did not receive it.
No bug.

I just went into my subscription in one of the groups I'm a moderator in to set my "owner emails" to "none," but it was already set to that even though I've been receiving owner emails. Possibly a small glitch there. (I have not been receiving owner emails lately in another group I'm a mod in, which was also already set to "none"; but I don't think there have been any recently in that group, or at least since I set it to "none.")

moderated Re: Following a new topic sends out catch-up emails with missing group [Subject Tag] #bug

 

Hi Mark,

I don't think it's Gmail doing that, as my other account (this main one, Exchange-hosted) also does it, and IIRC from back then, a Yahoo test account also did. 

Unless if you already checked that part of the code, it looks like the Send Follow-up code bit is using the original sent-in email subject field to populate the catch-up email subject, not the "processed/posted" one that went out with the tag added, and it may have to do with whether one replied to the topic through email or online, IIRC catch-up messages from the same person would exhibit this; or, the code is just "forwarding" the original message as it came in, not as it "posted" on the topic archive, if that makes sense.  And it only happens when catch-up messages are being sent right after following an unfollowed-before topic, not under normal-flow (send-after-posted) follow messages.

Please give me a bit of time to follow a couple of new topics and generate the catch-up messages and do some research; there's got to be some pattern to this that should help point out what's going on.

Cheers,
Christos

Unless there's a way currently, I'd like to suggest a "To-do List" feature. I searched and did not find any previous discussion points. If I missed the discussion please let me know. 

Would be nice to have checkbox options for when an item is complete, with the option to send an email to the list author or anyone subscribed, as well as who "completed" the work (or checked the box anyway).

Please take a look at this one and fix it when convenient. Yes - it is obscure but easily fixed.

Problem> The display for Past Members is garbled when shown on a mobile phone display.
See attached screenshot. 

  • Symptom 1. The email address is obscured by the link "History"
  • Symptom 2. The link "History" is misplaced and obscures the email address
  • Symptom 3. The "Date Left" is simply not shown on the mobile version of the display

Thanks for looking. Raphael

F5-refreshing the page refreshes the list contents and they now agree with the changes.  Not doing so, and continuing to (test-) edit that member (thinking one must have not made the change, so go back to check/redo it), results in a "one-page behind in display results" scenario, where the underlying code correctly does its thing, but the list display code seems to display the next to the last changes.
This is something of an insidious problem for a handful of groups.io operations. Deleting photos from a photo album does the same thing...the photos in the album are renumbered, but the thumbnails served from the browser cache are not.

I've gotten into the habit of doing a Ctrl-F5 whenever something doesn't "look right," but I suspect many others have yet to learn that trick. If the reload can be forced from the server side under such circumstances that would be a good thing (yes, I know it's been asked for before).

Thank you, Mark!
The only final  issue I have is that 
If one is looking for the number of hits, besides all of the actual hits,
They must issue the search twice, with an interveng change in their Profile preferences,
Once for the quantity and once for getting the full list if it's long.
In this case it runs into the hundreds of Topics because he is a top dog specialist with an international practice.

I recently started to edit an extremely long pending message for length and clarity. I eventually gave up and simply rejected the message, asking the member to rewrite it herself and resend. But in the message rejection notice, on which I bcc'd myself, where it says "the message is attached," the original message was not attached. Instead, the partically edited (by me) version of it was included.  This could be extremely confusing to the member and I think this is a mistake.

I've made this change.

Nobody can post to a locked topic as long as you have not also deleted the topic. If you deleted it, people may be able to reply via the emails that are still on their inbox.

I do quibble with that slightly. I don't know who "suggests" that. The setting is there by request and for a reason, and I have a few important trusted members set to "P."

This is in a search of the message archives for a recurrence of " Jun" which is a name.
However, I have my account preferences set to infinite  scroll and while just rechecking, found that
ALL of my searches limit to 20 results.
I have my name in my signature and I'm most likely the most prolific poster in the group and every post has my full name in it as it shows in my signature below.
But I quote it in my search
I also just tried my name as below without quotes and it only gives 20 results.


The message search results page never supported infinite scroll. I've just added it.

Thanks,
