Can't you check the posted dates from the message list?
Then individually see all messages made by this member

I take back the request to substitute the "posted" date for the "joined" date and I now agree with Michael - we need the "joined" date if for no other reason than to be able to see the members list in order of most recently joined first. I don't care about the date they joied, but I do care about seeing the newest members at the top.

So I hereby revert to my previous request to simply add the "posted" field if possible, not subsitute it for "joined".

I have had to check the date someone subscribed numerous times.
 
When a tagger in my group tells me that a member isn't following their rules for signature tags I go and look and see - well she is a new member so give her some slack OR she has been a member for 2 years and she should know better.
 
There have been other instances too when their date of joining would be useful.

I don't understand the utility of this. Everybody knows what their email address is, or at least knows what the possibilities are for which email address they subscribed under. I have never had to check the date someone subscribed, or had occasion to make use of that date in any way, shape, or form. But perhaps I'm alone. 

I'm just thinking that if there is limited space, spend it on something more useful - at from my point of view. If there's room to include both, then include both.

I'm not sure Mark has a database field for members of their most recent post date. 
But whatever fields are available could be shown using the database table viewer that lets you show/hide the columns.

No, keep ‘date joined’, do both.

It’s handy checking who is subscribed, particularly when they say they are but not getting messages and aren’t reliable about saying what their email address is, but have an idea when they joined.

I’d never thought of sorting by when someone posted, but it seems like it could be useful too.

As a matter of fact, I don't have much use for the "joined" (date joined) column, and would love to see "posted" (last post date) take its place.

I know there's limited screen real estate, but it could be helpful to have a column in the members list for the date of their last post. You could then order the list by that and see who's been posting recently.

Um... Mark, could you possibly have a look at the result? The list of group names and the latest message times are now on opposite sides of the screen. IMHO this is less than optimal, as things like number of members and delivery seem to be "more important" than the time of the latest message. I know that there will be as many opinions as there are members of this group but I think my preferred sequence across the screen would be group name / actions needed / latest message / delivery / #members, putting the subjects in a more suitable order of importance.

It does. Not much happened on Thanksgiving week. I think the only thing pushed to the site was the bounce probe tracking change.

moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

  • BUGFIX: We would not display messages correctly if they were plain text only and had a really long line.
  • CHANGE: Text changes to the Update File/Update Folder dialogs in the Files section.
  • NEW: Added advanced subscription option badges to the Delivery column in the Members page.
  • BUGFIX: Changed the included ICS attachment in event notification emails to work around a Gmail bug that would sometimes display one part of a repeating event with the wrong day.
  • BUGFIX: Made checkboxes for moderator/owner notifications screen reader accessible.
  • CHANGE: Because of a policy change at Gmail, we are now re-writing the From line for messages sent back to senders that have gmail.com email addresses.
  • CHANGE: Show your email address in the footers for digests and summary emails.
  • CHANGE: Tweaked the wording a bit on the Yahoo transfer page.
  • NEW: If there is an error adding an email alias, don't collapse the email alias display (which hides the error).
  • NEW: Use the group default time and date format settings when generating event notice/reminder emails.
  • INTERNAL: Unbounced Cox.net members who had been bounced over the past 30 days (because of Cox's email issues).
  • NEW: Now tracking bounce probe deliveries.
  • BUGFIX: In some instances we would send a daily summary to a pending subscriber.

Have a good weekend everyone.

I like this idea.

Perhaps some badges (akin to those used in the email column) to indicate
Advanced Preferences. For example:

(none) - All Messages (the default)
F - Following Only
FF - Following Only w/ First Message Also
R - Auto Follow Replies
A - Max. Attachment Size limit (any selection except Unlimited)


Done!

moderated Re: Change the name of the Edit File function to Update File

 

Hi All,

I've changed the dialog title to Update File (and also Update Folder). I've also added  "Optionally upload a new file to replace the existing one." under the browse button. 

Thanks,
Mark

I prefer Update precisely for that reason. The function afforded by this
dialog includes both /editing/ the File Name and Description and
/replacing/ the file content.

 > I would suggest /Select a new file to replace the existing one/.

In the semantic context of this dialog we're replacing the existing
content with a newer edition (revision) of the content - not a
completely "new" (or different) file. The only reason this isn't
properly an edit is that the editing must be done locally.

So, for text under the Browse control, a bit more wordy but perhaps less
clumsy would be:
"If you wish to replace the online content select a local file with the
updated content. (The file content cannot be edited online)."

moderated Re: Investigating erroneous "Message too big!" errors

 

Mark,

I got a message from a group member this morning that he'd composed a detailed message last night and then got a "message too big" notice and lost the whole thing and became totally aggravated etc. Your "is fixed" message is timestamped 5:11 PST. He's on the east coast so that would coincide with "last night" for him. So hopefully the timing bears out that he simply sent his message before the fix. But if it happens again I'll let you know here or at support.

Thanks.

I'm seeing high numbers of internal network timeouts that are leading to erroneous 'Message too big!' bounce messages being sent back to people when they email their groups. I've increased some timeouts and am continuing to investigate.

I've made some changes to help. I've increased the timeouts for receiving emails. And I fixed a bug where we would return a 'Message too big!' error when an email timed out being sent to us. We now tell the sending server to retry. 

I still don't know the root cause of why some emails are timing out being sent to us, but I suspect at this point it's a more general network issue and not just us. But I'm still investigating.

Thanks,
