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.

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.

In that case, it should be removed from the Integrations menu so that no one attempts to use it (and complains when it doesn't work. ;>)

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,
Mark

Yes I am having trouble too. The site is "going in and out" of reach.

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.

Still not working. I've communicated with 2 people at Canny who say it's a configuration problem at groups.io.
I give up on Canny. Sounds like it just creates more hassle for you and groups.io members.

In groups that I host we recommend that users create “throwaway” gmail or yahoo addresses that don’t identify them and are used only for posting to the group.

I am interested in pretty much the same thing as Patti, for pretty much the same reason. The group I am in even has the word "anonymous" in its name ...
