I'm not aware of any issues with the FBL stuff. Are you saying that no one on your list is getting unsubscribed for marking messages as spam, or are you saying that you're not receiving the notifications?

Thanks,
Mark

Good grief right back atcha! ;-)

I think owner opinion as to the value to Groups.io should be a factor when Mark makes his decision and the only way he'll get that is if open discussion of proposed changes is encouraged rather than discouraged.

Good grief. It's only a suggestion. Mark gets to weigh the merits of it and decide if he wants to implement it.

That explains a few things that individuals were reporting on GMF. Someone else has fed back the substance of your post in at least one of the relevant threads.

moderated Unexpected breakage last night

 

Hi All,

Last night around 8:30pm pacific time I upgraded the Go toolchain from 1.9.4 to 1.10.3 and did a release to the site. This is the software that builds the software that runs the site. I reviewed all the changes before I upgraded it, and was confident that nothing would break (I upgrade the Go toolchain on a regular basis). Unfortunately and completely surprising to me, it did break parts of the site that deal with uploading files. Invites, direct adds, and profiles were the main areas affected. The bug would result in blank pages or your changes not going through.

I've changed the code to deal with the new behavior, and everything should be working again.

Thanks,
Mark


moderated Closing a Poll automatically

Beth Weld
 

My group extensively uses polls to vote on various items, but we also use polls to take attendance every day during a multi-day meeting.  If the meeting lasts 3 days, then we have 3 polls, and the members should only be able to vote in the actual day's poll during that 24 hours. We have members all over the world so currently use the Central Time Zone as the official "day".  The issue is that someone has to manually close a poll at the exact time to limit the activity of the members voting in the wrong poll (should be voting in the next day's poll for example because after midnight in CST).

I have been asked to request a new feature that is very important to my group:  We need a way to automatically close a poll at a certain time without manual intervention.

I have also been asked to request another new feature - the ability to set up a poll in advance and have it "open" at a requested time without manual intervention.  I figured that this one would be harder to implement in the current structure so am making it a separate request.

Thanks a lot
Beth


moderated Netzero account?

 

Hi,

Do you have or do you know some who has a netzero.net account? If so, can you (or your friend) send me a message to markf@corp.groups.io? The content of the message is not important (although there should be something in the message). I am debugging my DKIM parsing code, and it's failing on at least some netzero.net messages. I want to know if it's me or if it's Netzero. By sending a message to me, it goes to my Gmail corporate account, which will tell me if Google thinks the DKIM sig is valid or not.

Thanks,
Mark


moderated Re: Group Setting to Enable From Address via groups.io #suggestion

Also, I was incorrect in stating that Office 365 implemented DMARC.  They have not.  They have implemented signing but not actual DMARC screening so they will fail, as well.


moderated Re: Group Setting to Enable From Address via groups.io #suggestion

Pete AE5PL
 

So I guess this fell on deaf ears...  I was hopeful I could bring other groups over from Y! as I am not fond of where they are at this point but this is a deal killer for anyone on an enterprise system including Office 365 (Business and Enterprise) that are using Exchange and have their servers properly tightened to prevent spoofing of internal domains from outside sources.  If Mark is considering the fixes discussed here (group-level and user-level), I would hope to get an update as to potential implantation timeframe (loose, not exact).  Thanks.


moderated Template for recurring events #suggestion

Lew Volk
 

I'd like to have a template for recurring events. With a standardized form that an admin could just plug in the changed data. Then post to the group as a whole (just like the new topic button)
So maybe in Admin>Settings>Member Notices. There could be a new Notice Type "message to the group". Then someway for admins to select the Notice, Edit it and post it as New Topic.

mygroup+owner already does that. Sure, it would be more logical to use something like "mygroup+mods", but the -owner suffix is what most of us have been used to in yahoogroups for many years....

One of the first things I tried to do when setting up my first groups.io group
was to send mail to the moderators. Since mygroup+owner worked, I sent mail to
mygroup+moderator, which didn’t work.

One sample use: I do most the moderation, but I was going camping for a few
days. I let the other moderators know, so that moderation would still be
quick.

For most of my groups, all the moderators are owners, but as a group member,
I’d probably still try and send email to moderator if there was a
moderation-related question.

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.

Enter is now a no-op when pressed when editing the subject.

 OK, thanks - ignore my previous message about the exporting to csv. I doubted that was what corrected the problem.

Follow up;

I re-tried the add a row test and continued to receive the same error. I even tried logging and out and back in. Finally, I wanted to review the information in the database, so I did an export to csv. Now, add a row works again.

I don't know what to make of this, sorry.

I am creating table in Databases and found strange issue: when I set date field in table, on creating new row it is by default populated by current date, and there is no option to change that. However there is checkbox to set if answer in a field should be required (which is obviously useless).


This was a combination of two bugs, both of which have now been fixed.

Hi,

You can ask moderators be notified when an email is sent to the owner address (one of my group uses this method to let moderators know whenever someone sends an email to me the owner).

Cheers,
