That would not alleviate my issue or the others. I want to disable them entirely, for all the reasons mentioned.

I agree with that, too, especially since members interacting only via email don’t see the Likes. I know part of the idea of Likes is to cut down on clutter, which is great for groups worried about that.

If I could, I would turn off "Likes" in my group.
Add me to the list for being able to disable "Likes."

I would agree with this albeit for a different reason.
I prefer people to engage with the group Even if they only post a 'me too' type comment. I would rather they didn't have that lazy option since I'm fairly sure nobody ever checks to see if their comment was 'liked'.

I am for "Publicly Listed Groups" -- wordy, but it reduces ambiguity.

Followed the link from the GMF thread to this.

+1 on a simple strip images option setting.

Less worried about the "what to do with them afterwards" discussion.

Shal, I like both ideas.

J,

Different verbiage implying only that they are publicly listed, not
public in terms of membership, might be less misleading to people
searching for groups.
Could make a pointed tautology of it by calling them "Listed Groups".

Or make it meaningful by having also a heading for "Unlisted Groups" - containing only a count of them.

moderated change title "Public Groups" on search groups page #suggestion

 

The title "Public Groups" on the groups search page sounds like these are unrestricted-membership groups. Different verbiage implying only that they are publicly listed, not public in terms of membership, might be less misleading to people searching for groups. Or maybe, no title at all - or just "Groups." The fact that they are publicly listed means that they are publicly listed. Readers don't need to be told that they are.

Brian,

Thanks for the emails. It turns out we were not doing the Gmail From re-writing for accounts that did not have 'I always want copies of my own emails' checked in their preferences, which included you. It should be fixed now.

Thanks,
Mark


moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

  • INTERNAL: Moved from Grafana to Chronograf for metrics dashboards.
  • NEW: Added advanced subscription option badges to the Delivery column in the Groups page. Also, did some reformatting.

Have a good weekend everyone.

J,

        Will look through tomorrow morning.  My brain is fried and, unfortunately, I made the mistake of setting my subscription back to "no email" moments before you sent your prior message.  I have reset it now to individual messages so that I can see if a pattern forms based on "reply from venue" and whether the person making the reply is me or someone else.

         I figure if something emerges it will help Mark figure out what's up with Google and the spoof warning banner.

Brian,
I replied to some of them via email and some via the web. I'm responding now via email. Tell me which one(s) you want to know about (you can give me the first couple of words) and I'll tell you which way I responded.

J_Catlady's reply did not get one, either.  Just curious if that reply originated in e-mail or via the Groups.io web interface?

I still think that may be the key. The sig is appended below all the prior messages in the conversation thread. So perhaps your email is "helpfully" trimming those for you?

Mark,

            I'm hoping the screen shot, which is from my "signature test" topic, showing the flow in Gmail's web interface and the warning banners might be useful.

The terrible state of public education has paid huge dividends in ignorance.  Huge.  We now have a country that can be told blatant lies — easily checkable, blatant lies — and I’m not talking about the covert workings of the CIA. When we have a terrorist attack, on September 11, 2001 with 19 men — 15 of them are Saudis — and five minutes later the whole country thinks they’re from Iraq — how can you have faith in the public? This is an easily checkable fact. The whole country is like the O.J. Simpson jurors.
