Attachments are moderated in my group so I can easily filter out the reposted images on replies before they get into the emailed photos album.  It also gives me the opportunity to remove annoying graphics in email signatures, most of which seems to come from members who use a corporate/business email address.  I find stripping them out at the moderation stage and adding a Moderator note to the post to say they have been removed is simpler and quicker than removing images from the album afterwards.

I would like to see this also. It's tedious doing housecleaning in the
emailed photos folder deleting one at a time.

1. I'd like to suggest adding  a way to control that.

2. A way to delete multiple pictures from that album at once.

3.  And a way to move those photos into other albums?

Thank you.

moderated Re: Bouncing Status Anomaly #bug

 

Chris,

they should still receive monthly notices because these are sent as Special Notices, but I have found several instances where these have been bounced for several months or even longer. However, there is no "Bouncing" Status badge against these members in the Members List.

The mechanism that sets the Bouncing status can have lots of leeway in it, depending on the response code from the receiving service and frequency of occurrence.


I have concluded - perhaps wrongly - that where a member has selected Special Notices Only a message bounce will not be automatically further investigated by system - generated Bounce Probes.

No bounce probes are sent until they've been changed to Bouncing status. Meanwhile message deliveries continue and are monitored, possibly leading to Bouncing status. I don't think the type of subscription figures into it other than changing the rate at which messages are sent to that member.

If my belief is correct then I think this configuration is wrong; any bounced message should be followed up by bounce probes and the member badged accordingly.

I'm not certain what the current status is for any given response code. It used to be that many codes would cause the mechanism to advance to Bouncing immediately. This has been backed off as too aggressive for some response codes, based on email service behavior.

I don't know if this is relevant, but my group has members opting for Special Notices Only who are Bounced, but none who are Bouncing.

Mark; while investigating something else entirely I think I have found a bug in the detection of some members being "bouncing" but not recorded as such.

This perceived problem seems to arise if a member has their delivery set to Special Notices Only; in the group I co - own they should still receive monthly notices because these are sent as Special Notices, but I have found several instances where these have been bounced for several months or even longer. However, there is no "Bouncing" Status badge against these members in the Members List.

I have concluded - perhaps wrongly - that where a member has selected Special Notices Only a message bounce will not be automatically further investigated by system - generated Bounce Probes. A little further delving revealed the point that as the individuals are not listed as bouncing a Moderator cannot send a Bounce Probe manually, which most of the time makes sense.

Can you confirm (or otherwise!) my conclusion that a "Special Notices" member will not have system Bounce Probes sent to them in the event of a bounce occurring is correct? If my belief is correct then I think this configuration is wrong; any bounced message should be followed up by bounce probes and the member badged accordingly.

In some respects this doesn't matter but I could easy see it mattering for any group hovering around the threshold where payment for member numbers applies; members recorded as Bouncing don't count towards the trigger point but if they aren't logged as bouncing then they will be included as "valid" members even when they aren't because of their unrecorded bouncing status.

In common with others (as discussed on this group), my group polls are locked when they are created due to the lock topic attribute on the #poll-notice hashtag so that replies by email are automatically rejected. A member still needs to be able to close a poll that they created as described in the manual.

I did some checking on this.  It appears that the options are only unavailable if the topic is locked (by a mod.)  That would explain the need for the edit archive permission.

Hi Mark,

in my testing subgroup, I noticed that the locked topic icon is not always displayed for polls on the polls page. When viewing by topic I see this:

Hi Mark,

the member's manual gives clear instructions on how a member can close (or repoen) a poll.  However, the options to do so are not available for them to select. Currently, it seems the minimum requirement is to be a Moderator with the Edit Archives permission.

moderated Re: Duplicate log entries for approving pending messages #bug

 

That is true. I just checked it. It seemed to me before that it was being marked as "claimed" if I even just opened it.

But I still think that "claiming" a pending message should be an affirmative act, just as it is for "claiming" a pending member. Currently, if you check "edit," even if you make no changes, it is marked as claimed. Even if I click on "edit" and then decide to do nothing, it is currently still marked as claimed. That is a different policy from pending members.

If you just click on the message subject in the pending list, you can view the message without it being logged as claimed.

moderated Re: Duplicate log entries for approving pending messages #bug

 

I agree. This problem is the reason I had to completely stop even looking at pending messages in the two groups in which I’m a sort of subsidiary mod. The minute I open a message, I’m logged as having claimed it, which is extremely misleading (I think the word “wrong” would not be hyperbolic). 

I don’t think this is a problem with having two log entires. I think there should be separate log entries for (a) claiming a message and (b) acting on it. The problem is the overzealousness of (a).

Therein lies the problem. Obviously, I cannot moderate a message without reading it. If I open the message to read it and simply close it, the message is not claimed. 

I always thought I had to open a message in the editor to claim it. Even the docs say that.

I don't think it's appropriate for the log to say I did something that I didn't do.

I raised this issue back in May this year.  I still think it's unnecessary to have two entries when a message is just approved. A point I tried to make in #29585.

Yes because you might claim it and reject it. Or do something else with it. Or nothing at all. Why should they not be separate log entries?

I do take slight issue, though, with simply opening a pending message causing it to be "claimed." That's not what happens when you look at a pending member, where you have to explicitly claim it. Mods can look at pending members without being logged as having claimed them. This policy for logging mods as having claimed a message when they actually have just opened it is relatively new, and seems wrong.
