view/change plan #bug

Duane
 

Based on your (Mark's) reply at https://beta.groups.io/g/main/message/27017 I've done a little further checking (with assistance from Shal).  It turns out that if anyone has made a payment for a group, none of the other owners can see the View/Change Plan page without entering a CC number to set themselves as payor, removing the original payor.  Until a payment is made, any owner can see the page.

Thanks,
Duane

I think Mark has been at work!  I now see a Ban Sender button at the bottom of the offending emails.  I am sure it was not there before but I could be wrong.

Anyway...... Thanks Mark for all the wonderful work you do looking after all of our grievances and petty problems.

Unfortunately - or fortunately (however you look at it) - our group is a Charity.  Although it is privately listed on groups.io,  I get a lot of enquiries from 'word of mouth' sources from individuals offering support but not wanting to join the group.

Catch22 situation

Please disregard my request.  I will live with it.  Obviously no-one else has this problem and as I dont understand all of the technical jargon (I leave that to the experts) I am nervous of trying to supply that kind of information.

Thanks for your time,
Pamela

The only way to do that currently is to NOT allow non-member posts.  They'd be rejected automatically.  (BTW, ALL groups moderate messages from non-members if you have it set to allow them to post.)

Chris,
I just want to stop receiving them!!  It is time consuming and annoying that I have to deal with them every day.  I just dont have the time!!
I have Rejected them with a message to remove our email address from their system but to no avail -- they still keep coming!!

Curt I check my Spam folder many times per day and they are not going to it.

They are coming straight into my Inbox

Hi Donald,

The only "to field" I can find is as per my sample which was From: Str8 Creative <supportaaeja@...>
To: <knit4charities@groups.io>
and
From: Josias Melo ANPG <support@...>
To: knit4charities@knit4charities.groups.io

So I guess in answer to your question they are being sent directly to our group address.

Re: #bug event times in /feed are all 8 hours out #bug

At risk of making a fool of myself, I think I have spotted it as a bug in https://groups.io/js/displaytime-0.2.6.js

function DisplayEventTime(t, tzstr, dateFormat, timeFormat) {
    if (t == 0) {
        return '';
    }
    if (typeof tzstr === 'undefined' || tzstr == '') {
        tzstr = '';
        momentDay = moment(t);
    } else {
        momentDay = moment(t).tz(tzstr);
<snip>
should, I suspect, have that last line before the snip as                  momentDay = moment.tz(t,tzstr)
- that's what the matching line looks like in the other, similar functions in that file.

Maybe ..? Or maybe I am way off.

Malcolm.

Sometime back, Mark tried using a spam filter for the site, but as with most others, it wasn't very accurate, giving false results for both positive and negative.

Oops. Not the first time, either.

It would be nice if the Discard button was on the opposite side of the page instead of immediately adjacent to Send.
PLEASE? Same just happened to me.

It might well be, but I would still like to know exactly what the OP is asking for. In the ansence of that let me provide this example.

(a) If a moderator is looking at a suspect message using the group's web UI then what they are viewing is the actual message from the poster.

(b) If a moderator is looking at the same suspect message from a notification email then what they are looking at is NOT the original message; it has been processed by Groups.io (in a wrapper I daresay) and is actually from Groups.io.

In the case of (a) then a "spam" tab could be used to inform Groups.io that the sender is a suspected spammer. In the case of (b) then an attempt to have the email labelled as spam could easily accuse Groups.io of spamming, not the originator of the message that groups.io has simply wrapped up and passed on. That action could have disastrous consequences.

It is a case of Be careful what you ask for, in case you get it.

Re: #suggestion The ability to mark a moderated message as Spam #suggestion

 

It looks like the request is for spam filtering from groups.io, so that obviously-spam messages would be auto-rejected, not requiring moderator action. Then if you want your group to allow messages from non-members (but moderated), it would be less work for the moderator to reject all the spam messages coming in.

The downside is that a legitimate message might be incorrectly marked as spam, the same problem regular email systems have. It would have to be thought out if this is OK, or if there's a way to make it easier for a moderator to mass-reject a ton of spam messages.

I previously posted in managers forum and here. Ours off by an hour in feed. Arizona time. Which does not observe daylight savings time.

I wonder whether there is a link between my observed effect and the first bugfix listed in Mark's 5th September changelist: https://beta.groups.io/g/main/message/26156

To what end, exactly? I assume that you do not allow these messages to pass moderation (why would you?) so who would you want or expect to see that they had been marked as spam?

Re: #suggestion The ability to mark a moderated message as Spam #suggestion

 

If  Donald Hellen's post doesn't make sense, check your spam folder. At least in my case, Pamela Tatt's original post on this topic was flagged by Outlook360 and placed in the "Junk" folder due to the examples she included. --cg

Are these addressed to the group or the group owner email address?
(You didn't include the "to:" field in your examples.)

The answer to that will help the group provide some help.

#suggestion The ability to mark a moderated message as Spam #suggestion

Pamela Tatt
 

Forgive me if this has already been discussed.
I am getting a lot of unwanted messages (see below) every day in both my main group and subgroups.
My groups moderate all messages from non members.

Would it be possible to have an option to mark such messages as Spam at the point of moderation similar to being able to Reject or Delete a message?  

Thanks for your consideration,
Pamela

We have noticed what looks like a bug when using the search function on a database:

We store a time field in our database, it's in 24hr format, e.g. "18:50", these fields display normally when we look at the rows, we can sort the data by clicking on the column headers etc, all good so far. However, if we do a search to filter the records all the time fields appear as "00:00".

This should be fixed now.
