I have an event that occurs on the following the 3rd Friday (which isn't always the 3rd Saturday).

My usual process is to create the (repeating) event on the 3rd Saturday, and then edit the occasional incorrect event to change the date to the appropriate Saturday on the months where the Saturday that follows the 3rd Friday isn't the 3rd Saturday.

OK. So if I go back and need to change the calendar event for all events, I edit the calendar event. It then replaces the event on all of the 3rd Saturdays.
Another work-around would be to create it as a 3rd Friday event with the event name "Day after 3rd Friday 'event'" - not very satisfying, but less labor intensive.


I thought such an event might be unusual, until I realized that I know of 2 events that are the first Saturday after Labor Day
- the 5th day after the 1st Monday [in September] and repeats every 12 months.

Also, Federal Election Day in the United States of America is the Tuesday following the first Monday in November
- the 6th day after the 1st Monday [in November] and repeats every 24 months [even years].
Some States also hold elections on that date every year, or every other but on odd years.

I suggest adding a "Days after"

tds.net (my ISP) was completely blocking groups.io for about 24 hours, but this latest digest got through. I complained so hopefully that had some impact.

It was not an FBL thing, they simply bounced all messages from this IP address.

Mark,

I wondered what was going on. I had three members start bouncing today, and I virtually never, or extremely rarely, get bouncing members at all, let alone three simultaneously. One of them responded to a bounce probe but the other two, one earthlink and one erols.com, are still bouncing. FWIW.

Hi All,

As of a couple hours ago, Hotmail/Outlook are delaying emails from us. Our reputation is clear, so I'm not sure what the problem is.

I'm also getting reports of blocking from some services that use Synacor for FBL stuff, including wowway.com, zoominternet.net and embarqmail.com. We are registered with Synacor, and again, they're showing no issues on the website, so I'm not sure what's up.

I did fix an issue where we were ignoring some FBL reports if the domains didn't match what we were expecting them to be (ie the AOL FBL reports on the cs.com domain as well as aol.com). I don't think this is the issue, but I actually don't really know. Expect more people to be affected by FBL reports, however.

Thanks,
Mark

moderated Add Delete button on Edit screen #suggestion

Rick Steeves <groups.io@...>
 

Currently, if I want to delete an scheduled Calendar event, I have to:
-Log into the portal
-select the event
-Select the Edit botton
-scroll down to the bottom of the event and select delete.

If there was a "Delete" button on the same page as the Edit button, I'd save having to select "Edit" and scrolling to the bottom of the screen.


moderated Re: #photos - name list confessing when assigning owner to photos

Drew
 

If you keep hitting the "S" key you will cycle through all the names that begin with S. However, the photo album Owner names are just users' Display Names, which are not unique. For example, there could be multiple "Jim" and no way to distinguish one from another.

Users who have not set a display name are easier to ID as their email name (preceding the @) is shown in lieu of a Display Name. I'd suggest that both the users' display names and their email names be listed for photo album ownership reassignment. That way we'll be able to tell one Jim from another...

But even with these two suggestions it is not practical to edit photo album ownership in a group with more than a handful of members.

No, it’s not an oddity. It’s correct terminology. You are editing the subject of the message or topic.

I does not appear in my testing that the message is actually sent.  But it does close the 'compose' page which is unexpected.
I would suggest that the Enter key in this field be treated as a no-op and ignored.  Tab or mouse can be used to move focus to the body.
