moderated Pending subscription message now including location/other info


Marina
 

I am very sorry. I was looking in the wrong place.
The location was stated in the "Subscription Approval Needed" mail. I hardly take notice of those messages because I usually check my group via web.
Thank you for your patience,
Marina


 

Hi All,

If there's a strong preference, I can add some help text to the 'Apply For Membership In This Group' button that says something like 'Your IP and browser information will be included in the request'.

Is anything like that included when someone just sets up a groups.io account before joining any groups?

It just occurred to me: will moderators of unrestricted groups also be privy to this info? Why should it be limited to mods of restricted groups?

I just realized this morning (yeah, I'm slow sometimes) that it would be useful to include this information in the subscription application when a person joins via web.  I wasn't using the Pending Notice until yesterday, so hadn't really seen it before.

Thanks,
Duane

 The information is included in the "Subscription Approval Notice" that you receive, regardless of whether or not you have an active "Pending Subscription Notice."

I'm not talking about the "Subscription Approval Notice" for restricted groups, I'm talking about the notice I get when someone joins a group that's not restricted.

Oh, gotcha. I misunderstood because you mentioned that you were not using the Pending Notice until recently. Since the Pending Notice only exists in a restricted group, I figured you had a restricted group but were not using the notice.
