Ah, thank you, Mark. I can appreciate that it is. I so very much hope that it can happen (sooner, rather than later and yes, I know I'm being greedy). We've had a lot of problems trying to control photos (like proper identification, staying on-topic, over-exuberance, etc.) and moderating them was the solution. As Donald pointed out, especially in today's world, a group being "infiltrated" even though owners/moderators do all we can to head that off at the pass, does happen. Whether it's porn, politics, advertising, or general spam that stuff still has to be weeded out if we can't head it off. Even with a moderator watching activity, there isn't someone on duty 24/7 so that stuff does manage to filter through to some members before moderators find and kill it.

I do appreciate all that you are doing with Groups.io, though - I've been "with you" since OneList and eGroups... and have sadly (and angrily) watched Yahoo all but kill groups with Neo and neglect. Thank you for providing a service that we can escape to and keep things going.

If there is a waitlist, and one has already rsvp'd with a plus one, then one cant add or change to a plus 2.   that is, the event is full, so you cant add.  Period. If the event is NOT full, then a member can change to a plus 2.


  and a plus two cant be waitlisted separately from your own rsvp.   If you want to do a plus two, you would have to rsvp NO, and then rsvp yes with the plus 2, and take your changes on it all moving up on the waitlist.  this can be a bit confusing to members at times, but usually not to the owner/moderators.    At least, this is how Meetup does it.  meetup also doesnt notify members that they cannot rsvp with a plus one when the owner has disallowed plus ones. It just kicks out their rsvp not accepted.  this DOES confuse members, so I have to add NO PLUS ones in the event description.  



Meetup has some good qualities, and some frustrations.  when IO has finished building all the stuff in, I would rather be there.    But not unless I can mass move my hiking group over.  My social group, FriendsConnections, was a bit of a pain getting everyone over to IO from Meetup.

How would this work for events that have a max number of attendees and a waitlist? That is, say I RSVP for an event with a +1. Others then also RSVP and there's a waitlist. What if I want to bump up my +1 to a +2? Or if I remove my +1, so there's now one spot that can go to a waitlisted person, but the first person on the waitlist has a +1 (so would need 2 spots)?

Hi All,

Moderation of photos is definitely on the TODO list, but I'm not sure when it will be done (it's a significant amount of work).

Thanks,

Yep. Just send a message to support@groups.io from the email address you'd like to delete and I'll take care of it.

moderated Allow moderation of Photos?

Ginny T.
 

Would it be possible to allow moderation of photos, in the same way that messages are moderated? I'm not talking about the general group settings of "allow or not", or the specific album permissions of who (all or owner) can add to the album -

I mean when a member uploads a photo ( to any album), it's held in moderation until it is approved (or rejected). We have some specific guidelines for photo posting in the group I'm moving, and there are members that  are seemingly oblivious, no matter how much general help and/or 1 on 1 help is offered. The only way thing that helped was to moderate photos. A simple "approve or reject" would be wonderful... (and I know that "simple" is relative).

Please and thanks?

Ginny

I'm not sure I agree with the theory (although it may have validity), but you can currently "delete" a message without "rejecting" it and the member never knows it.

It would be good for a held message to be approved by moderators : Approve, Abstain, Reject.
If the message has been held (circulated) and no-one votes then Reject after say two weeks.
(Two weeks is good for me)

It may be good to have a Remark or Reason field which could be sent as a reject note. :
. Your message was moderated and no-one approved.
. Your message is Off-Topic.

I've run into a similar situation a time or two. I can't quite decide if the message should be
posted, rejected, or deleted. As group owner, I sometimes claim it until I've had time to think it
over. Until I got assistants, I just left them pending (and they went away in 2 weeks if I didn't do
something, making my decision for me.)

moderated Site updates #changelog

 

Change to the site this week:

  • INTERNAL: Lots of work to support recurring payments.
  • BUGFIX: Several bugs with the Google Drive authentication and integration.
  • BUGFIX: In chats, we would always link to someone's profile, even when the permissions didn't allow viewing of the profile (the profile was never viewable in those cases, the user would be redirected elsewhere).
  • NEW: Added new list view to calendar to list upcoming events for the next month.
  • CHANGE: Updated the logged-out home page with a new tag line and description of the service. Also tightened up some margins/formatting on mobile.
  • INTERNAL: Removed some extra code that didn't actually do anything except generate bogus error logs when a message with attachments was edited.
  • CHANGE: When parsing email parts, ignore bogus 'charset=binary' parameter, which was causing us to delete attachments.

Have a good weekend everybody.

thanks for looking into this so promptly. i have tested a couple files so far and everything looks to be working as we expected....we are in the process of moving from YA**o Groups and were trying to learn all we could before bringing all our members over.
