moderated Site updates #changelog


 

Changes to the site this week:

  • INTERNAL: Work on automating a tool to test database backups.
  • CHANGE: Do not delete pending messages or pending subscriptions older than 14 days if they've been claimed.
  • INTERNAL: Generating a lot more config files automatically through software, to make it easier to change configurations/add machines.
  • INTERNAL: Added ability to off-load queries to replica databases and have started doing so to reduce the load on the main database.
  • NEW: You can now claim pending subscribers.
  • BUGFIX: Event reminders did not include organizer name.
  • NEW: Including a login link in direct add notifications.
  • NEW: You can now invite someone to join a subgroup (they will be added to the parent as well if they accept).

Have a good weekend everyone.

Hi Mark,
NEW: You can now invite someone to join a subgroup (they will be added
to the parent as well if they accept).
I've just been looking at this new feature.  I think previously, moderators of subgroups could only use the Direct Add feature (if they had permission) to add members of the main group to their subgroup. Allowing moderators of subgroups to invite members to a subgroup now gives them additional permissions over membership of the main group where they may only be a subscriber.  This goes against the principal of having those permissions in the first place.

Regards,
Andy
