Hello,
Just an idea. Get all their email. Put them in the BCC, put yourself into the to field, and send them an email.

It looks like it is probably just Yahoo screwing up.
Nothing too unusual about that.
no unfortunately it is not, but then that is why we are at
groups.io instead of Ygrouos.

Today I noticed that if I put in a URL, such as https://groups.io/g/beta, in the plain text editor, and I get that group in mail, the URL gets linkified, but that includes the comma following the URL . I don't know if Groups.io is doing this, or if it's my mail reader.
John,

My guess is it might be Yahelloooo!!

My primary place to read Yahoo! mail is at Motto, an iPad
app that you can use for Ymail, Gmail, etc. At Motto your link https://groups.io/g/beta, with the comma afterwards worked ok,
as it took me directly to the beta group as intended. Also the mail app that came with my iPad also worked right. However, the Ymail
app did not work right. It included the comma in the link and when I clicked on it I got this message from groups.io: Sorry that group does not exist.

I received your message via email and read it with Pegasus Mail 4.70.
The comma was not included in the link.

Today I noticed that if I put in a URL, such as https://groups.io/g/beta, in the plain text editor, and I get that group in mail, the URL gets linkified, but that includes the comma following the URL. I don't know if Groups.io is doing this, or if it's my mail reader. If it's Groups.io, the linkification code should ignore punctuation with a space or carriage return following it when converting a direct URL to a link. (Punctuation without a space or carriage return is OK and is part of the link. Some URLs have commas embedded in them, for example.)

If it's my mail reader doing this, oh well.

(Edit: After posting this, I see it behaves correctly in the Groups.io message area itself.)

Hi

While the website works pretty well on iOS with VoiceOver, it would be nice to have a Groups.io app just so we don't have to go through hoops, such as opening Safari, typing or searching for Groups.io and, if necessary, log in. One could instead open the app, it should either prompt to log in or log in automatically, and go from there.

On Android, you can add a web page to your home screen, so it looks and opens just like an app. That still leaves you with the need to log in every once in a while (I forget what the expiration time is), but not each time you open the "app".

I wouldn't be surprised if there's a way to do something similar in iOS.

By the way, I'm not arguing that an app isn't needed or desired - my purpose was simply to let Janice's potential member know that it is possible to use groups.io on his phone even without an app.

I checked and we weren't auto-orienting cover photos, like we do with other photos. I've added that flag, and you shouldn't see this again.

Thanks,

On the Members page, go to the Banned tab. At the bottom is a box to input the email address that you want to ban. To the right of it is a button to Ban User. I think that's what you want to do.

locked A list of banned email addresses

 

Hi Mark and all,

Some Groups.IO groups received an email, claiming that another member was gravely ill. Turns out this person was impersonating another person, obvious by the fact that this impostor was using an email address known for causing spam emails.

To prevent recurrence of this spam, I’m thinking of adding this email address in the banned addresses list if such a thing exists. I understand that one can ban an individual manually, but I’m wondering if there is a facility to ban email addresses by entering them manually into a list of sorts. Also, is there a way to implement a regexp-based email address filtering so we can block addresses containing specific strings?

Thanks.

Cheers,

Joseph
