I suspect it's been more of a priority type decision.  Now that there is more interest, maybe it will move up the list a bit.

We could use the lists you mentioned. I didn't know of them, so I thought we might have to make up one, though it's always good to find some inspiration. My personal favourite is Yahoo Groups categorization because it's very specific, though we don't have to be nearly as fanciful. The nice thing with Yahoo categorization is that there's various levels of categorization. I'm not saying that we have to use Yahoo Groups categorization method. Even a few caffdhories would help a lot.

What is wrong with using either Dewey Decimal or LCC categories?

Hi Duane,
Thanks for that, I don't think I would have ever found it.   So the idea has been around for about 3 years and it sounds like it never got any traction.  Mark suggested that the Yahoo lists were too detailed and hard to find a category.  And that is exactly why I like  the idea of just having 20-30 broad categories.  That would accomplish several goals.
- make it easy to find one to assign to your groups
- make it easy to browse groups of interest instead of looking through essentially all categories like today. 
- limit the complexity and don't allow users to create their own cryptic categories that would defeat the purpose.

So that does means someone has to come up with a list of broad categories but I don't think it would really be that hard.  (famous last words, lol)

This was discussed about 3 years ago and there's an item on the TODO list for it, https://trello.com/c/oo1m94cl/122-tags-for-group-categorization-discovery

Hi Jonathon,
The category lists I've seen are fairly short (maybe 20-30 entries) and broad or general.   I'm not familiar with the ones you mentioned but are they similar?  IMHO, I don't think we would want a very long list of narrow or specific categories to choose from.  If the list is fairly short it would be easy to view and select a category and even 20 entries would greatly improve the ability to search and browse in the area of your interest.

Perhaps a topic for the GMF rather than this one, at least for now!

Totally agree. Lots of other group host sites have categories. We'll have to decide on a list, though.

It would be very helpful to be able to search / browse groups by category.혻 혻There are new groups on Groups.io but it is not easy to find them for a specific interest area.혻 For example I'd like to see the new groups for "Amateur and Ham Radio" that are being formed.혻 See the illustration below, I don't think there is a good way to do this currently but it seem like it would not be difficult to add.

For those groups like mine who require a hashtag on every message, can we please get a similar requirement for the calendar. Events would automatically show up in the hashtag area correctly.

A proper list then. From that post:

o Following & not Following
o Muted & not Muted
o Posted by me & Posted by [x]
  (to take the place of posterid: syntax in search)
o Replies & has no Replies
  (useful in Q&A groups, like help groups)
o Likes (by anyone) & Liked by me (& maybe is liked by [x]?)
o Locked & not Locked
o Moderated & not Moderated
o Special Notice (& not Special notice, just for consistency?)
o Edited (& not Edited)
o Attachments (& has no attachments)

> ... but we might as well make the wish list complete.

One more exotic then:

o Latest message per member & earliest message per member
  (combines well with date range filters and Posted by)

moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Changes to the site this week:

  • CHANGE: For groups with reply-to set to sender, include List-Post header in single messages.
  • NEW: Delete account functionality, without having to contact support.
  • BUGFIX: In a plain text message, if someone enclosed a link in < and >, we included the trailing > in the link.
  • BUGFIX: Don't send event reminders and notices for cancelled events.
  • FIX: Fixed wording in the message visibility sections of the create group and create sub group pages.
  • CHANGE: If a wiki has a sidebar or footer, disable the 'Add a Sidebar' or 'Add a Footer' button instead of making them disappear.

Have a good weekend everybody.
