Feline,
Non comprendo. 
What do you mean?  I don't have any such thing on a sidebar.  What am I missing?
Splain?

In general, if you make a topic a sticky, it stays a sticky until you undo that setting.

if this could be done automatically, for how long would you like the message to remain a sticky?
Same answer. The #guidelines hashtag is set by default to have a duration of one month, so if you've elected to send them monthly, the old one automatically disappears.
 
how would you like to indicate to the system that a message should become a sticky?
As I think the request implied, it would be another group guidelines option/setting, along with all of the others.

ne way I can think of may be to have a special hashtag for it, e.g. #makesticky
That's a great idea and one similar to Shal's suggestion. That said, there is already a special #guidelines sticky, so if there were a hashtag setting "sticky," as in Shal's suggestion, you could just set the #guidelines hashtag to that.

Shal, great idea. I also just edited the hashtag to make it locked, which I'd neglected to do before.

J,

Could there be an option to make the group guidelines a sticky when
sent monthly? Currently this has to be done by hand each month, and
it's easy to forget.
Would it work to have that be a hashtag option?

I'm thinking it might be useful in conjunction with the Topic Duration hashtag option, on #guidelines and all sorts of other use cases.

Not having used this feature before, allow me to ask: if you do this by hand, for how long does the message remain a sticky?

Then: if this could be done automatically, for how long would you like the message to remain a sticky?

Also, how would you like to indicate to the system that a message should become a sticky?

One way I can think of may be to have a special hashtag for it, e.g. #makesticky or #pleaseread, which (if used by a moderator) causes the message to become a sticky for a certain period of time. Would that solve your problem, or if not, how would you want to indicate to the system that a particular message is one that should be automatically made into a sticky?

The only argument I can see against the request is that the guidelines are already available on the left sidebar, so making them a sticky creates a some redundancy. But some members peruse the messages list routinely and are less inclined to use the sidebar. And for them, and in general, it's good to have all of our "admin" topics at the top of the list in one easily accessible place.

Do we really need to argue about this? I am requesting that it be done automatically, by option. I'm done here.

p.s. I won't be responding further here to comments by people who are not yet familiar with the group guidelines feature. I assume Mark will either accept the suggestion about the sticky, or he won't. It's a simple request and doesn't really require a conversation.

The group guideline feature was created, by request, specifically to avoid having to use the calendar to send out the monthly notice. The request here is to make the message/topic a sticky. It is already being sent out monthly by option.

(Before we get into another "just be a better moderator and you won't need to feature" debate, let's remember what Mark said about arguing against suggested features. And let's keep in mind, preemptively, that it's easy to add the feature and it would provide a not insignificant modicum of convenience. So there. :)

moderated Change default calendar view from the Feed page to list view on a mobile device #suggestion

Andy Wedge
 

Hi Mark,

the changelog on 9/3/19 confirmed that list view was the default for calendars on a mobile device.  I've noticed that if the calendar is selected when displaying the feed page on a mobile, it appears in the monthly grid format.  Can we change this to list view so it is consistent with calendar displays from within a group?

Thanks,
Andy
