moderated Member list does not clear prior search term #bug

 

If you delete your search term in the member list, making it blank, and hit Search again in order to go back to the complete member list, the search is not cleared and you still see the prior search results. To see the complete member list again, you have to out of and back into the member list.

It's not here, because a decision was made to use "topic" instead of "thread" everywhere. All instances of "thread" were supposed to be changed to "topic." Every so often a missed one pops up. This is just one of those. Just a global terminology decision and a minor oversight. No big deal.

I don't think so. It's perfectly possible that in due time, there's more than one thread about the same topic, or at least with the same subject-line.

"unfollow thread" is the technically correct terminology

moderated Re: #suggestion Allow owners more control over the Direct-Add initial email #suggestion

John Pearce
 

I don't think that's a bug.  It appears to me that there is no "active" ckeckbox because it is always active.  The control you have here is if you create a direct add notice it's added to the text.  If you delete it or don't have one, the canned notice is sent without the additional text.  I have a test member that I keep on special only just to test with.  I removed it from the group then added it back direct add.  It added the text (which I had never had before).  A direct add notice does not show as active and there is not check box either.  GIO adds the text if it's there and doesn't if one is not but the notice is still sent.

moderated Re: Changing display name is logged as "changed moderator permissions" #bug

 

Slight correction: both things are logged - "changed display name" and "changed moderator permissions" - even when only the display name has been changed.

moderated Profile photo #bug

Duane
 

Someone on GMF reported that they couldn't delete their photo in the profile for a group.  I did some checking this morning and realized that the "Remove file" button doesn't work on the Profile Photo.  For now, the work around is to upload a blank file.

Thanks,
Duane

Very sorry your child has contracted the flu, Mark, strong hopes and wishes he will soon be better and you and your family stay well. Here is a little Gilbert and Sullivan cheer to brighten our early morning (it is early morning on the east coast of the US):

Seen on face-book:

I am the very model of effective social distancing!
I listen to the experts on the topic of resistance-ing;
I know that brunch and yoga class aren’t nearly as imperative
As doing what I can to change the nation’s viral narrative.

I’m very well acquainted, too, with living solitarily
And confident that everyone can do it temporarily:
Go take a walk, or ride a bike, or dig into an unread book;
Avoid the bars and restaurants and carry out, or learn to cook.

There’s lots of stuff to watch online while keeping safe from sinus ills
(In this case, it’s far better to enjoy your Netflix MINUS chills)!
Adopt a pet, compose a ballad, write some earnest doggerel,
And help demolish Trump before our next event inaugural.

Pandemics are alarming, but they aren’t insurmountable
If everybody pitches in to hold ourselves accountable.
In short, please do your part to practice prudent co-existence-ing,
And be the very model of effective social distancing!

(Credit unknown)

Hi All,

Just a quick note that, like I'm sure with all of you, my productivity is taking a hit right now. Amongst all the craziness, our kids' school is closed for at least 3 weeks, and we're also dealing one of them having (hopefully only) the flu. Customer support/responses to beta@/development work will all be slowed for the foreseeable future.

Thanks,

The existing email is not secret.  So the original sender MUST be validated before posting messages received via that original posting mbox.
Jim -- I guess I don't understand the problem. Clearly, what we're talking about is not a bug...at worst, it's a missing feature.

Please post to GMF and perhaps we can help you there. I have further suggestions but don't want to extend what amounts to an off-topic thread.

Another but, only if they have the specific email address assigned to the integration.  Highly unlikely that someone would accidentally create that address.

P.S. I don't see any way to "assign to the integration" our existing email address.  The only option I see is to generate a new email address of the form groupname+int+gobbledegook@groups.io and forward our existing mbox to that.  Which defeats all posting security AFAICT.   If I'm missing something here please reply -- I don't understand how the "email integration" can be very useful for announce-only groups.  Thanks.

Oh dear, Mark.  Hopefully you can get him tested for the flu.  If he's positive, he can then be prescribed an anti-viral medication.  If he's negative, hopefully you can ask his doctor to test him for COVID-19.  Take care, sending good thoughts your way!
