This is definitely an interesting idea. Profiles are an undeveloped area of Groups.io. Let me take this and write up a bit of a proposal and get a discussion going in the new year.

Thanks,

  3. What would be an appropriate maximum length?

Lest anyone think the the traction was purely related to the disability niche, two unrelated groups: Rant, MusicRequest have reached the 20 user mark, as has my group, future-tech.. I suspect that these groups have been able to reach this size largely because The-tech-zone (and the related disability groups) have brought more people into the Groups.io ecosystem. So those you who attempted to found a group before but found it difficult to get members might want to consider promoting your group again.

It is my understanding that The-Tech-Zone allows you to post that you've created a related group (although I recommend checking the most recent statements on this yourself). I took advantage of this and I gained a few members from this. I suspect that anyone wanting to found a tech or programming group would be able to find people interesting in joining now.

locked Taglines

 

I think that it would be useful to be able to list your relation to a topic next to your name via a tagline. Specifically, this is a group specific text label that would be displayed next to your name within the Groups.io interface. For example, in GroupManagersForum I might set my tagline to "Mod of future_tech", in the-tech-zone I might set my tagline to "Web developer" and so on... These would benefit the group by making people seem less anonymous and also give a better idea of where everyone is coming from. My suggestion would be that these taglines could be either moderated or unmoderated. There are a few issues that would have to be resolved.

  1. How would this be handled via email?
  2. Reddit has "flair" in which a user is assigned one of a limited set of tags and flair can only be assigned by the moderators. Is this a better or worse system than taglines?
  3. What would be an appropriate maximum length?

"Right now, you can't edit the subject of an individual message, you can only edit the subject of the thread. It's not clear to me what should happen if we let people edit individual message subjects. For example, if you change the subject of a message in the middle of a thread, should that split the thread into two different threads in the archives?" - I don't think that editing the subject line for individual messages within the archive should be allowed since many of the further replies might be replies to the original message. It simply creates too many complications. I'd probably prefer to restrict editing the thread title to moderators or the original creator of the thread.

"If a user (or group) is moderated, any calendar, files or wiki action will also require approval (assuming the person has the authority to do those actions in the first place). Basically, this changes the definition of moderated from just posting messages, to any action in the group" - I don't want to have to moderate everything. I moderate posts because posts send out emails and I don't want my members to be exposed to emails that aren't up to scratch. If someone posts something stupid to the wiki then I can always undo it after, but you can't undo the sending of an email.


locked Re: Edits, deletions, moderation, oh my!

 

Summary of feedback I've gotten privately so far:

- Phase Two, having other actions be moderation-able (I just made that word up), does not seem like a popular idea
- Message subjects shouldn't be editable
- People should be able to delete their own posts regardless (deletion should not be subject to moderator approval)
- Hashtags should be editable only by the person that started the thread (and moderators)

Thanks, and please keep the feedback coming,

Hi Judy,

Yes, that's the way it works now. If you reply to a message and change the subject, that creates a new thread.

I was asking about the scenario where a person goes to the groups.io site and edits their own message which was already sent to the group, not posting a new message.

Thanks!

I can only speak for my various embroidery/sewing/quilting groups.  There are a lot of times when a member will take an existing message and want to ask a question or comment on something other than what that particular message was about.  So they will change the subject and clear the text and write their message. 

 

Since most groups moderate all messages, I think not only should this revised message need approval, but it should definitely start a new thread.  That’s the purpose of changing the subject. 

 

Again, these are my thoughts for the type groups I own/moderate and participate in.

Hi Mark

Just uploaded a file to my family group. 
The message on the Message View and Thread View in Archives has an odd small error - instead of “that a file has been uploaded” it says “thata file has been uploaded”.
This email message is a notification to let you know thata file has been uploaded…

In Expanded Message View, it appears correctly.
The email message announcing the file was correct as well.

Small, but I don’t know whether this might translate into a bigger error. 

Cheers,

Thanks for alphabetizing the pages within the wiki.
Any chance you make it easier to move text on the page? For example, if I want to edit this text - 

Say I wanted to edit this text to move the sentence “The questions comply with the test’s specifications…” and put it first in the paragraph. 

Of the 60 questions, 50 will count towards your score. Ten (10) questions are pilot questions that will not count towards your score. The questions comply with the test's specifications and have been approved for inclusion by a multidisciplinary team of subject-matter experts. While these questions will not count towards your final score, they may be used in future versions of this test. There are a total of 60 multiple-choice questions of two different types in this test

It is easy in my email and in my word processing. Just select, drag and drop.

In the wiki, I have to select, cut and then paste it in the right place. Works, but more steps necessary. 
Frankly, I don’t know how hard this is to do, but I guess I am used to drag and drop in word processing. So, just a nice to have!

The good news is display text and its associated URL, if any, do get cut and pasted properly.
For example, in a list like this where the items are links.

Airline alliances
• OneWorld Alliance
• Star Alliance
• SkyTeam Alliance

BTW, I appreciate the outdent. Useful.

Currently, the wiki doesn't support images. It's definitely on the todo list.

I have been creating a couple of pages of travel links and it seems to work for our purposes.

I created a home page with links to a couple of subsidiary pages.
I used unordered bullets. 

A few small points:

It would be nice if I could alphabetize them after I put them in. I don’t see any way to do that.

Drag and drop - looks like it is designed to work with images only, but I couldn’t paste an image and there was no upload. Am I missing something? I couldn’t use drag and drop to alphabetize my list.

The horizontal line didn’t seem to work. I tried Command / Function / Return on my Mac (Function changes the return key to an enter key), plus a few other possibilities.

Search - the search works but the results are poorly displayed. This is a search for ATM. It does say that it is on the page for Travel Tools, and the words “travel tools” is clickable. However it seems to be displaying the full page. That would be awkward if it were a text-heavy page.

Table - I couldn’t figure out how to create a table. Not obvious to me. I was able to create a table with Pages (Apple) and paste it in nicely.

Sidebar - Interesting. We might use it to go to our archive on YahooGroups once we migrate to Groups.io

Thanks!

All,

I just pushed the wiki to the live site. It should be self explanatory (please let me know if anything is unclear). Permissions work like the Files section (default is: editable by moderators, viewable by members). 

Depending on feedback, I'll announce it on updates in a few days.

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks,

Hi Frances,

Thanks for the feedback. I have updated the software so now the pages are alphabetized. Thanks for the bug report.

I could not reproduce the problem you were having with the horizontal line. I was able to click the button and a line appeared. I did not try the keyboard shortcut however.

Currently, the wiki doesn't support images. It's definitely on the todo list.

Thanks,
Mark

Hi Mark,

I have been creating a couple of pages of travel links and it seems to work for our purposes.

I created a home page with links to a couple of subsidiary pages.
I used unordered bullets. 

A few small points:

It would be nice if I could alphabetize them after I put them in. I don’t see any way to do that.

Drag and drop - looks like it is designed to work with images only, but I couldn’t paste an image and there was no upload. Am I missing something? I couldn’t use drag and drop to alphabetize my list.

The horizontal line didn’t seem to work. I tried Command / Function / Return on my Mac (Function changes the return key to an enter key), plus a few other possibilities.
