Agreed Ronaldo. However the numbers are not evenly distributed. Some cats have
a massive following. That's the problem.
I assume you are not referring to the meowing kind here. How is it a problem if some
dudes have a massive following, and how exactly do you want to solve it?

How would your system help you find groups you don't even know you want to find?

Do you want lists of groups sorted by how mainstream or fringe they are?
If so, how do you measure mainstream-ness?

I get the feeling I've missed something crucial

I think I've demonstrated I'm not adverse to some wading.
Your personal preference matters little here. What matters is that prospective members
can easily find the groups they want to join.

As to the other message: I am not saying false tagging is an ancient game. I am saying
we need a way to punish those who do it. We need a way to report it, and if they keep
doing it their group(s) should be dissolved. Maybe we even need someone to review
the tags and approve them before the group becomes active.

groetjes, Ronaldo

My suggestion would be to offer it directly to anyone who emailed you for it. Then there wouldn't be any copyright issues.

How can you tell which groups.io group is recognized as having the transfer request.   I just created a transfer request for a 'shadow' group after creating a request for the original group... seems to show the same as the original request....

I checked your account and you have no transfer requests set up. If you see an issue, please forward the details directly to me and I'll investigate.

Mark, I hope you can help. I'm in a similar sutuation.

I started with $20 premium monthly and saw the charge on my CC.

When I realized I needed a Premium Yearly, I upgraded the account. Settings * Admin * Billing shows the account status as Yearly Premium, but my credit card wasn't charged.


It will be charged after your month that you already paid for has elapsed (so Nov 27th it looks like for your group).


As a result, the transfer process is stuck.

Once you switch to annual, you can go ahead with the transfer process even if your credit card hasn't been charged yet.

I checked your group and it doesn't have a transfer request. You should be able to create a transfer request and get the process started.

Cheers,

Hi All,

The optimization I added yesterday did the trick. Search indexing is caught up and is keeping up with group imports.

Thanks,

YG has transfer@groups.io as a moderator, but Easy Setup says, "We have accepted the invite to your group. If you have not already, make transfer@groups.io a moderator of your group. Once you have done that, tell us when you are ready to transfer your group."

I suppose it boils down to if you are the kind of person who likes to browse the shelves in a library rather than just ask for a specific book.

I've been doing that since I was ten years old so I do like to browse. Books were my first love (technically comics came first). Books and the two young librarians I was too shy and insecure to talk to much, other than to get my books stamped 😊

Ronaldo, I'm not ignoring you. I answered you in lots of little replies. I didn't realise that's bad form here so they got deleted.

I'm still working out the small differences in function here but I think I can do you a one message inline reply later when I have some more time.

I don't think it would change anything, other than creating additional lines.  As each message is imported, a certain amount of processing has to be done.  Whether it's from a small group or a large group makes no difference.

The experts in the forums advise against moving members separately and my active members are against that idea as I am because we want members to maintain their ownership of their data that is transferred. We consider it important that identity of owners of files and photos is transferred with the members.   Also, the group has already been exported and will have an account.automatically created for them at groups.io. They like that.

We still have our old group intact at Yahoo and able to email the group at Yahoo as always. And Yahoo is still archiving our messages on the message board. We cannot upload photos and files until we are imported.

I have new members that are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the group so that they can participate. We are on hold on Groups.io until transfer is complete.

The. Issue addressed by my suggestions was to speed up the process for everyone.  It is the monster groups that overload the servers. The issue is whether what I suggested CAN be done. Duane addressed that with his comment. The issue to consider is overloading the servers. Including smaller groups in the bulk imports should help solve that problem.

My group is moving forward in the queue not back so apparently there are not a lot of expedited vroups lately. The monster groups are the problem.


moderated Re: Suggestion for Importing Groups

The suggestion was NOT to jump ahead of members who expedite. You misread and misunderstood!

And it is not driving anyone crazy to wait. It is unfair to have to wait for monster groups. Monster groups are large groups, not expedited groups. 

Additionally, this was addressed to Mark.

Expedited groups go to the head of the line!  I watched out group go from 8 to 9 to 8 to 7 to 8 to 9 to 8.... you get the picture. We are finally imported and everything is in place and working wonderfully! I really wanted to ask Mark for a "point of no return" to lower the anxiety level... but, I didn't... it wouldn't really matter whether you wait at position 11 or at 1, if someone pays to expedite, they cut in line ahead of you. We waited at position #1 for hours, btw. Once our import started, it took about 5-10 minutes for 900 members and 18,000 messages.

My suggestion is to move your members over yourself and allow the group to carry on without the archives while they wait for the import. 

I think Mark has it right. If small groups "jumped the line" for free, it would be terribly unfair to the others, IMO.  It's no fun to wait, but you can always expedite if it's driving you crazy!

Obviously not an ideal situation, which limits the usefulness of the split/ merge functionality,
Then a BUG REPORT it shall be-- seems the sorting problem reported after this could be a corresponding related issue.
I saw that behaviour and just had a WTF moment.
But yes it was there when I typed this October 23.

While I'm sure everyone is anxious to get their group transferred, I think Mark has found the most equitable procedure - first in, first out.  As I understand it, only a limited number of processes can be done at one time to limit the loading on the system.  It doesn't make any difference if it's a large group or a small group, it's still a process.  For those that feel they can't wait, he's included the option of paying an expedite fee to "jump the line".  I admit that I don't know what would happen if everyone suddenly decided to expedite. ;>)
