moderated Re: Chrono order is reversed when you click on new selection criterion in activity log #bug

 

Beat me to it, I had this in my drafts as I was going to submit it.

The problem is that while the Search button uses (the page?) default of CreatedDESC, the URLs for the buttons have the CreatedASC sort hardcoded:

<group>/activity?p=,???,,0,1,0,0

I think changing the 1 to 0 will inherit the "page default" of CreatedDESC, if that's how that works, instead of setting it to 2, force it to CreatedDESC.

Cheers,
Christos

I was just commenting because the way you put it struck me funny. :-) 

I don’t use Meege any more because the email threads stay separate and people keep replying to both. Merging was becoming Sisyphysean (sp). 

BTW if you don’t like the appendages, you can set your entire group to MF so that any new topics are automatically moderated (just like in beta), allowing you to fix the title before the message even goes through.

It can be more than annoying. People may not realize at first that the order switched. Even now, though I realize what’s happening (and some mods might not), it’s always a slight shock to see messages I that don’t belong (look weird and unexpected) at the top, and takes me a few seconds to get my bearings and click on “created.” And also, if clicking on a column is what causes the reversal, you would expect it to reverse by clicking on another column. But it doesn’t. It just stays that way ad Infinitum.

moderated Chrono order is reversed when you click on new selection criterion in activity log #bug

 

I have a vague memory of this happening in times past, and possibly even a discussion about it here, but had not noticed it occurring in full force until a few days ago, and now it always happens: if I'm viewing the group activity log, which comes up with "all activity" as the default, it's in reverse chrono order, as it should be. But if I then click on any specific filter, e.g., "message activity," it immediately reverses and I'm seeing messages from 2015. And from then on, clicking on any other criterion, or even "all activity" itself again, doesn't reverse it back. They all show up with 2015 entries at the top. The only way to reverse it back is to click on the date ("created") column.

I have had a few instances where the "Merge Topic" function behaved oddly, like it should not do.

Just now, I used it, and there was no pop-up dialog at the last step asking for confirmation.  It just went ahead and merged the topics after I chose the "Merge into" topic.  (As it happens, I was hoping to see that dialog box this time, so that I could verify that I had selected the right two topics to merge.)

A week or two ago, I had two cases where I changed my mind and chose "Cancel Merge" before the second step.  But the merge sequence didn't cancel.  I was able to complete the merge without re-initiating it, just by selecting a "Merge Into".  IIRC, this happened twice; but when I try it again, then or now, it doesn't happen anymore.  So it is erratic.

moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

November 19, 2021:

  • CHANGES: Formatting tweaks to the chat window.
  • INTERNAL: We now parse Content-Type headers that are (wrongly) RFC2047 encoded.
  • APP: Submitted a new version of the app to the app stores. It includes bug fixes for chat and some icon display issues, as well as integration of Code Push technology to make future updates easier to do.

November 18, 2021:

  • NEW: There is a new Group Sponsorship member notice. Discussion
  • NEW: We now send a acknowledgement email/payment receipt when someone donates money to a group donation. Discussion
  • NEW: We now send a acknowledgement email/payment receipt when someone sponsors a group. Discussion
  • BUGFIX: Searching phrases with quotation marks breaks the search pagination and sorting. Discussion

November 17, 2021:

  • CHANGE: Activating the tapback menu on a chat message now requires a long press. This allows links in chat messages to be clickable.

November 15, 2021:

  • BUGFIX: Scrolling up chat messages didn't properly load additional chat messages if there were more than 200 messages in the chat.
  • CHANGE: Changed format of chat message notifications to be more consistent with message notifications.

November 13, 2021:

  • INTERNAL: We now track whether a person has a chat in focus or not, so that we can better decide whether to send a notification on new chat messages.

The next #changelog will be published on Wednesday, November 24th.

Take care everyone.

Yes it was. Seems to have stopped, at least for me, maybe since I immediately moved the whole bundle to my inbox once I noticed. And I only noticed because I had to search for messages that I could see were posted online, including a message to group owners.

My co-moderator points out that only some group messages end up in his Spam folder.  But it was a sudden change, enough for him to notice.

Google must have an AI tool that changes continually ...
Gmail's spam filtering is supposed to be custom for each user, and is based on the emails you receive and what you do with them.  If you mark messages as Spam, or mark them as Not Spam (to take them out of the Spam folder), it "trains" your account's spam filter.

But then every so often, Google throws a wrench into the works, and you have to "re-train" it again.  Maybe that is what just happened, this week.

As an aside, in early November I did some more work that (hopefully) has cut down further on the spammer receiving emails from us. Unfortunately, what it seems like is that he's now taking old group messages sent to him and re-sending them; I've gotten a couple of complaints this week about email that was originally sent to an account I had disabled at the beginning of November.
That seemed to be his usual behavior all along, storing messages for one to two weeks before re-sending them.

Our latest rash of messages re-sent since Nov. 6 may have been sent from an address that unsubscribed on Nov. 6.  He is re-sending messages stored before he unsubscribed.  I think you did not disable that account.
