moderated Preserve database "updated" field when exporting and importing #suggestion

Peter Cook
 

I have a need to export and then reimport a database table. I notice that when I do that, the updated field for every record in the imported table changes to the current date and time. Is it possible to change this so the field remains the same as it was in the original database? 

Thanks!

We have to do that because some anti-spam firewalls will automatically click on every link in every received email.

Mark,

When the dust settles on all of this, I'd be interested in knowing what was fixed/changed. Are retitled moderated topics no longer moderated (if they actually ever were, per this thread, rather than just being a possible log error, per my group's problem?) etc.

Thanks!

Just saw your "bug found" message, I guess you don't need that info anymore, right?

Your's may be a different bug. I'd still like to investigate.

Thanks,

This may be an unintended behavior Reply-Rules bug, but this is what's happening:

1. Group setting (and membership) is set to unmoderated.
2. A particular topic (TopicOLD) is manually set to moderated by the mod.
3. A user pulls the old "too lazy to create a new topic" switcheroo and they click on Reply to one of those (now moderated) TopicOLD messages, either through email or online, changes the subject to a new one, adds the text, and sends it as a "new" to them topic, but which as we know now contains the In-Reply-To: entry referencing a message which now points to a moderated topic.
4. When the message is parsed, the new-topic subject rules are applied but it seems the in-reply-to rules are also applied.
5. This causes the message to correctly create a new topic (TopicNEW) which technically should not be moderated as it's a new topic, but the message still ends up in the pending queue.

Please send me the details off-list and I'll investigate: email address of the sender and the URL of the message in the archives. 

Thanks,
Mark

J, please send me the details off-list: email address of the person who changed the subject line, name of group, when this happened, and I'll investigate.

We set the Reply-To email header so that hitting the reply button in an email client should work correctly. I think this should only happen if someone hits Reply-All in their email client, which would include the group as well as the rli=aol.com@groups.io address (in your case). Unfortunately there's nothing we can do about that.

7 years ago today, Mark announced the introduction of Groups.io to the world.  Looking at all the features that have been added in that time, it's almost like an entirely different site, all for the better.  We all know that there have been growing pains, but I still feel like it's the best platform in the world.

Congratulations,

This is a worse situation than it seems. My group is set to MF, which means, the first message of every new topic is moderated. Here's what happens when a member changes the titla via email:

When an NMM member posts a message, the log entry says "requiring approval because the member is moderated." It could be more helpful to say "requiring approval because the member is new-member-moderated." Mods would know, or be reminded, of why the user is moderated; trying to piece together later history in the case of problems might be easier; etc.

Done. It will only apply to new activity log entries, however.
