I think this may actually be a bug that sneaked in.  I may be misremembering, but it seems like this worked correctly when Mark "revamped the groups search page" back in November, https://beta.groups.io/g/main/message/26972

Still the same problem. In Browser Console:

moderated Make group search sort by whichever criterion the user has highlighted/selected #suggestion

 

Even though on the "Find a Group" page "Most Popular" is at the top left followed by "Most Active," with "Newest" third in the list, when you actually do a search it defaults to sorting by Newest every time. This happens no matter which is highlighted at the time of the search. You can have "Most Active" highlighted, for example, and the search still jumps to and sorts by "Newest." You can get a sort by anything only *after* the search has completed with sort on Newest.

This seems weird, especially since Newest is third in the list. I suggest that the sort order be whatever is highlighted at the time of the search. The default for that is currently the top one, which is Most Popular. But if the user selects something else before doing the search, I see no reason why it should jump back to Newest every time rather than sort by whatever they selected.

Possibly it would help if you simply did a mouse over without clicking and then recorded what's the link is in several of the buttons so that Mark could see what wasn't working or what was what

This has happened before to this member. They are a member of the group, with only this address and sometimes it bounces back to them and sometimes it doesn't. Retrying the same email seems to work after the first bounce, but this is clearly a PITA for Jim.

Could there be something causing an intermittent lookup failure?

Best,

1-2 days ago. The hamburger menu button at the bottom still works in memory-hogging Firefox, but in older Palemoon when I click the hamburger, the icon darkens for a fraction of second but nothing else happens.

I don't think I can get that version in a form that works on a mac; I'm having
trouble downloading even a current version for mac. Does it have a debugging
console? If so, are you seeing any issues in it?

Mark,

Is what "the miscreants" are doing a violation of the ToS "User Conduct" section as it currently written or does it require any amendments or additions to make it clear that what they are doing is not permitted?

Although I have no personal experience of this problem I understand from various comments on GMF that individuals removed from Groups.io show up as "Banned via Support".

Can I suggest that Banned by Support is clearer in its meaning, and that Banned for User Conduct violation would be clearer still. It is not impossible that "Support" is not fully understood by some as being "Groups.io Management".

moderated Re: add seach term "changed email delivery method" to member search term dropdown #suggestion

 

Right, for several reasons. First, the current list of things the member may have changed looks like it's exhaustive so you don't expect to find it elsewhere. Second, all the other (or the majority of the other) actions are phrased with active rather than verbs, as if the member themselves did the action.

I think the problem in this case is that there are two items: the member changed it, and the moderator changed it. So these were phrased as "delivery changed" and "delivery changed by moderator," presumably to keep them contiguous in the list. I see at least two possible solutions: (1) keep the actions contiguous in the list by making them read "changed delivery" and "changed delivery (by moderator)"; and (2) make it read "changed delivery," and have a completely separate category of items beginning with "moderator changed." So in that portion of the list there would be, e.g., "moderator changed display name," "moderator changed delivery method," etc. I'm not sure which one I prefer, but either way, I think the original item needs to read "changed delivery."

And while we're at it, either of these would be more clear if "changed delivery" were changed to "changed email delivery" or better yet, "email delivery method."

And I still wonder what "changed subscription plan" means.

Yes, I've always thought it doesn't really fit where it is at present and it would be better if it was with other 'Changed' items in the list.

Yes!! That’s it! The wording should be reversed do “changed” comes first, going along with all the other “changed” search terms. The problem is when it was changed by a moderator. But I think it’s more important to have it match the other things that the member themselves can change, even if that means the moderator action is not adjacent in the list.

For whatever reason my hosting (1&1 Ionos) smtp servers frequently end
up on Spamhaus. When it happens I can use my ISP smtp servers in most
cases but it is still an annoyance as it usually takes Spamhaus several
days to remove them and as an end user it is hard to communicate
directly with Spamhaus. I hope this is just a trial and highlights the
problems.

moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

February 26, 2021

  • DOCS: Updates from Nina.
  • APP: Support for adding attachments/photos from the device (the new app is not yet ready for general testing).

February 25, 2021

  • CHANGE: Updated the list of timezones that we use and added a list of aliased timezones, to address ICS file errors. Discussion.

February 24, 2021

  • NEW: Filtering incoming messages using the Spamhaus blocklists. We're trialing the service to see if it makes much of a difference.
  • BUGFIX: In ICS files, for modified instances of repeating events, we were not using a unique UID. Discussion.
  • BUGFIX: In ICS files, for repeating events specified in UTC, we were not using the correct format for the DTSTART/DTEND lines. Discussion.

February 23, 2021

  • BUGFIX: We were not properly escaping HTML elements in the topic summary lines in the /topics page.
  • CHANGE: If you click on an Unsubscribe link that's already been used to leave a group, we now display an error message.

February 22, 2021

  • INTERNAL: Work on monitoring tools to help prevent abuse of the site.
  • CHANGE: If a message is emailed to a non-existent group, we no longer return a list of groups you are subscribed to in the error response. As has been pointed out, that is a security breach.
  • CHANGE: We are now less forgiving of incorrectly formatted SMTP commands from incoming email servers.

Take care everyone.

moderated add seach term "changed email delivery method" to member search term dropdown #suggestion

 

There are log items for "changed email delivery to [whatever]" in members' activity histories, but I can't find a search term in the activity search dropdown that corresponds to it. I thought it might be "changed subscription plan," but that turns out not to be the case.

I wonder (1) what "changed subscription plan" means in the first place, and (2) whether a search term "changed email delivery method" could be added to the list.
