With deference to the previous posters, I'm very much a dog person not a cat person, so let me share with you an AMAZING and cheap dog toy.  Take an empty plastic water bottle, stick it in an old sock and tie a knot on the sock. Dogs love it because it simulates chewing on bones.

Happy new years,

Glenn

Canny is a nice interface, but, for me, it makes keeping up with groups.io more difficult because it is yet another thing to monitor. Using hashtags in beta to separate new feature requests, bugs, etc. may be a convenience for Mark when he is planning his work agenda. If he finds them useful, I'm in favor.
Best, Marv

moderated OT: amazing cat toy

 

My cats' feather wand toys were wearing out so I looked for a couple of new ones. Among the ones I ordered was this one:
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00G90773S/ref=ox_sc_act_title_1?smid=ATVPDKIKX0DER&psc=1
It arrived yesterday, and wow!!! My cats are so obsessed with it that I had to share here. In all my years of cats, and billions of toys, I have never seen such an amazing reaction to a toy. (I'm almost afraid to post this because I'm afraid it will sell out or they'll raise the price.;) I just ordered two more, just in case!) They will play with non-stop, until *I* am the one worn out. I think it's the combination of the leather tassles and the feather. Who knows.

moderated Update Delete Topic dialog to include topic title #suggestion

Louie S
 

I just had to delete an inappropriate topic from a group I moderate and accidental used the pull down menu from the previous topic. While there is a confirmation dialog it does not contain any information to identify the topic you are about to delete. I believe it would be very helpful for that confirmation dialog box to contain the topic title. That would very helpful and would probably prevented my from deleting the wrong topic.

tks,

Yes, the "View/Reply Online" link in the footer behaves differently in group digest*** emails vs group individual emails; the former will automatically open the reply box, the latter will not; i.e. the former includes the ?reply=1 parameter in the link, the latter does not.  So in the former case, any click on most all other options on the thread/topic page except the red Discard (draft) button will result in a saved blank message body draft.

The other two footer reply links behave the same, it's only this link that's different between the two.  I don't know what's the intent behind this difference, but IMO it should work the same on both.

Cheers,
Christos

*** (I only tested the Full-Feature digest, not sure if it also does the same on the plain or daily summary emails)



moderated Re: Non-permitted groups

 

Hi.  I am a lurker here, never post.   Always interesting to me to see the discussions.   On the group I moderate, this subject of rules comes up often.  Almost always brought up by someone who is more interested in the actual words, vs the spirit, of the rules.  As I usually remind people, we will never get every rule right - it’s just the nature of things.   Remember the spirit.  


The other thing we always remind people is that the First Amendment does not apply here - we are a private group.  Mark is right - if you don’t like it, you can go elsewhere.   It’s another sad reality that most people who quote the first amendment don’t understand it.  


Overall, kudos to Mark for establishing this space for all of us to use.  His rules, and the spirit of them, seem fair.  So does the application.  The wording could be better - perhaps remove the examples and make it about the concept (Mark - let me know if you would like some examples sent to you offline for you consideration).  


Stay warm everyone.   Here’s to 2020 being the best year it can be.

Mark, I had to look it up to see why it would be a problem.  Personally, I don't see it as a problem. Anyone who doesn't want to be here is welcome to leave. You and I don't really agree politically, but you've never intruded your beliefs on me, and I try not to intrude mine on you. It is an axiom of our country that we're free to believe as we wish, and to associate as we wish. Anyone who doesn't like the few rules here can certainly find someplace else to be. I know you to be an honest and decent person despite our differences, as when I left groups.io in the middle of 2016 over problems with your Terms of Service, you addressed them by more clearly defining what you needed and exactly how you would use your access to our copyrighted data. Which is why I've been a happy paying customer since

I agree with both of the above.  I often want to view online just to see the whole thread together, even though I have no wish to reply.  But if we click on view/reply online, there should not be a reply box automatically opened.  We can do that for ourselves once online by clicking the reply button. The problem is not the view/reply online button but is in the automatic opening of the reply form.  Once there we know how to click on reply.

And I actually was one of the first to advocate for that at the time. The fact that Mark needs - and highly deserves - to make a living, and a good one, does not really bear on this except possibly as a marketing issue, in that he can advertise that paying for premium comes with the priority for feature requests. Prioritizing feature suggestions from paid users, and bumping suggestions from non-paying users lower down on the basis of the user, not their suggestion, does not necessarily create a better overall product.

As far as bugs, aren’t we SUPPOSED TO use “support@“?
Experienced users may know to email Support for bugs but the concept of emailing Support, in general, is a recognized way to ask for help and not specifically for reporting bugs.

As a newbie, I found it extremely difficult to determine if an action (or non action) was a bug or if it was user behaviour or lack of behavior. In one instance, it was complex enough to require 18 GMF posts over 5 days and even then, when "fixed", Shal recommended that I report the behavior to Support so that Mark could determine if a mechanism had failed. However, by then, I no longer had the problem. Thinking it was a Support issue, I had not captured screen shots that I would have if I was reporting a Bug issue. 

I suppose what I am saying is it is very helpful to have a dedicated bug area discussion (or email address) in addition to the feature area discussion.

I can live with known bugs that don't cause havoc and I see no reason to email support if someone else has done so and provided enough data to render a solution. It's helpful to me if I am aware of a known bug. I used to be a software beta tester so I am familiar with reporting relavent data but I see no need to repeatedly report the same data. I would find a bug discussion area interesting and helpful. 

Support to me, is when a user is stumped and needs help to figure out how to do something. Experienced users can generally determine if it's user behaviour or a bug. I have found GMF to be my Support. 

I think of Features as independent of bugs and support but they do often have a relationship with both. For example, when Support responds with a "work around" perhaps a new Feature could offer a direct approach. When known buggy behavior is the result of a certain action, then a new Feature could eliminate the need to use an action known to result in the annoying behavior.

When clicking "View/reply online" in a digest, and then clicking "Like", it sometimes causes a draft to be saved. 
I get the digest and click the "view/reply online" in order to read the topic online. I have to routinely clear multiple blank drafts that have been unknowingly created. While I occasionally "like" a post, the drafts far outnumber my "likes". 

In fact, the first few weeks I was on GIO I incurred 30 drafts and had never used the "like" button. I didn't realize these drafts existed until I read a topic posted to the GMF forum about blank drafts and the response that they were there due to clicking on "view/reply online" from the Digest and that it was "expected" behaviour due to the "reply" link being clicked. 

I do find it strange and to me it would make more sense to separate the "view" and the "reply links. To me a "view" link would take me to the post and from there I would decide after reading, if I wanted to reply.

I will look out for drafts being associated to a "like".
