Hi Mark,

I was responding to your statements to Samuel Murray today:

"On Sat, Jan 11, 2020 at 12:46 AM Samuel Murray <samuelmurray@...> wrote:

What would happen (from now on) to subgroups in groups who are premium 
for a while and then changes to non-premium?  Will it be a loophole in 
the system that you can create subgroups by paying for 1 month premium?

The subgroups will be deleted, after a delay to ensure that the downgrade wasn't an inadvertent mistake on the part of the group owner.”

Your comment above is my first indication that my existing subgroup established under the temporary “Premium” membership purchased to get my groups transferred from Yahoo would disappear if and when we exercised the promised option to revert to a free group, i.e that it would not be “grandfathered”.

As you say, that feature may not have existed because there was no need for it.  Since you now appear to have above defined a “new consideration”, my current response would seem both reasonable and appropriate.

Respectfully,

WRB

Not sure I understand. You want to take an existing subgroup and make it a stand alone group? That feature doesn't presently exist.

Good idea. Done.

If the subgroups count towards the main group total, it would be very helpful to be able to see an accumulated total in the main group instead of trying to manually calculate it. If each subgroup has its own limit then I won't worry about it anymore.


Subgroups each have the same amount of storage as the main group. So, in (current) basic groups, the main group has 1GB of storage, and each subgroup also has 1GB of storage.

I have one list owner (on listserv, not groups.io) who hosts a list on travel in China. As much of what is posted can be construed as political by authorities in China he  assures complete anonymity. He does that by setting the list to moderated. So every message goes to him only. Instead of releasing it he copies the content into a new post, removing all personally identifiable information, and posts it under his moderator email address. He’s been doing this for 20 years.

The site had to go out of reach
And some members were starting to screech.
They lost their access
Due to bad DNS
But it wasn't too bad of a breach.

I have made this request before as well.  

Not sure why subfolders are allowed for files, but not photos.

Hi All,

It looks like a couple hours ago both our DNS servers just stopped working, for reasons I don't know yet. This caused problems accessing the site. The machines have been rebooted and access to the site should be back to normal. I'll be investigating why this happened (it's never happened before...) and figuring out some additional monitoring to check for this in the future.

Thanks,

Yes, DNS is bad this morning. DNS issues can take a few hours to fix as changes at the source can take a while to propagate to your locale.
