Sorry, but I can't see supporting that idea. Sending out a copy of Wiki page(s) results in a static document which goes against the idea of a Wiki as a living document.

What is wrong with sending out a message with a link to the Wiki? Besides, copy-n-paste seems to already do what you are after.

I'm not sure whether I asked this already or maybe it was already implemented:polls should be numbered. That way if they lead to discussion, you won't get confused as to which poll you are discussing about. Or if they come quickly after one another, about which ones you already answered.

"please answer poll 56" is a lot clearer than "there's a new poll"

Hello Mark,

Could say more about the functionality for mention a member to a topic/message with @displayname. To the configuration page it's important to add "Allow to be mention" or "Send a email when mentionned"

I strongly favor having them all there (actions affecting a person's membership) in one tab. Regardless of whether it was the member or a mod (or even the system/support) that took the action.

That would make it possible to search a single tab for the member's email address and get their complete join/leave history. The "All Activity" tab could be used, but is too cluttered with message and other usage activity to easily find the actions of interest.

Then you'd want to remove those other actions by the mod. Right now it's concerning when you look at the activity and a removal is shown but not a direct add. I slightly favor having them all there, just for convenience. But it should be consistent.

I think this relates back to an earlier call to refactor these tabs, or at least create one that is Membership (all things that affects a membership) rather than Member.

To me at least, it makes more sense to group the log entries by the activity topic rather than by who took the action. Because one is more likely to know what type of activity you're looking for than by who.

J,

I'm noticing today that direct adds are not included in the member
activity log. This seems strange, since joining the group, removed
from group, etc., are all included.

p.s. Not that I care about consistency for consistency's sake, but the lack, juxtaposed with the other mod actions being there, makes it look like something is missing or incorrect.

Yet all the other mod actions on the member (including "removed") are there. This is inconsistent.

They are included in the All and Moderator parts of the log.  Since a Member can't do a direct add, I wouldn't expect them to be there.

Mark,

NEW: Group default subscription preferences for date and time display.

The new Date and Time Display controls need the text Only set for new users that is found on Timezone. Unless they work differently (I hope not).

moderated change title of "spam left" notification email

 

The "spam left" notification email has title "subscriber has left xyz group." You don't get to the spam part until halfway through the body of the email itself. Could the message title be changed to "subscriber was removed for marking a message as spam"?
