  1. "Join group" not working today - Purple error bar "Sorry, an error occurred.." message

    "Join group" isn't working today - Purple error bar "Sorry, an error occurred.." appears when applicants try to join or try to accept a pre-approved invite to join a group. I've received multiple complaints about this today and hoping you can help resolve. It's happening in all our many groups. Thanks!

    • Please fix the ability to remove members.

      It is currently not possible to remove members from the groups or to remove banned members from the banned list. Please fix this as a matter of urgency. Attempts to remove give an error loading content and the member remains on the group.

      • Remove the requirement to identify as either male or female during account creation.

        I need software to manage committee calendars, agendas and minutes. I would use your software as it appears to be exactly what I need. However, your requirement to select male or female during account creation means I will have to look elsewhere. I sit on a committee dedicated to creating a welcoming space for people of all genders. Forcing the committee members to identify as either male or female is exactly the kind of problem we are striving to fix. Please reconsider your use of binary genders, and allow each person to identify as they see fit. I would ask…

        • Uploading files

          When you have your selections under membership to place the files in alphabetical order and then you upload a file you get the purple bar at the bottom that says Sorry, an error occurred while loading the content. There is no error the file uploads. But to be sure you have to refresth the page to make sure. Can you fix this glitch? Thank you.

              Please do not truncate or shorten the subject heading of group messages as it appears on the conversation view. It defeats the purpose of a public message.

              • When viewing pictures or albums, the page keeps reloading and taking you back to the top of the page.

                When viewing photos or albums, as you page down, the page reloads and sends you back to the top. Can't this be fixed to not return to the top?

                  • restricted to public

                    When I set up my groups they were classified as custom. I did not choose restricted or private. But now they are all marked as restricted by you not by me. I am unable to change them to public. Is this because I want to moderate who joins my groups? You need to let us have more control over this. Please advise. Thanks.

                    • Bring back the option to schedule Files to auto-send to pending members

                      When scheduling Files, the option to auto-send a File to a pending member is no longer available. There used to be a scheduling option labelled "Pending Subscriptions".

                      And if a group had previously setup Files to be sent to pending member, the Management > Control Panel > Notifications page does show a section for Files that are sent on "Pending Subscriptions" BUT these Files are never sent to people who have pending subscriptions.

                      A lot of groups depend on this feature because they require pending members to read and reply to auto-sent Files. And because the Notifications page says that…

                      • Cannot delete photos from albums

                        I keep getting an error message 'Sorry, an error occurred while loading the content'.

                        I have tried deleting by accessing the album, clicking the Edit Button and then clicking the down arrow and selecting delete and also by clicking the down arrow in photo stream and selecting Delete. I get the same error each time.
                        Thanks,

                        • Bring back the old format for yahoo groups.

                          Provide an option to select the old yahoo groups format. I've quit reading yahoo groups since the "new" version came out. It's a mess.

                            • Would like to be able to pause and go back to previous photo when the photos are in the enlarged view.

                              I believe that when you first introduced the enlarged view for our photos we could pause and also go back to the previous photos but that function seems to have disappeared. It is nice to be able to see the photos in the larger format but they scroll so fast that we don't get time to really enjoy the details of the photos. Can you make that happen for us..thanks

                                • Search exact user ID as typed; don't substitute another format of that ID

                                  When searching conversations using a non-broken name format, e.g. "FirstnameLastnameNumber", the reply shows results for "Firstname Lastname Number" (broken into sections). It then says "search instead for 'FirstnameLastnameNumber'" which is what I had actually searched for in the first place!! Give me results for what I typed in and don't presume to substitute another format for what I input.

                                      • You need to be able to report spammers so they can be banned.

                                        You need to be able to report spam generators and have them disabled after 3 reports, and have an option for a human to remove them selves from the list through some verification procedure.

                                        • Needed: A searchable database with a graphics field; i.e., jpeg,, gif, etc.

                                          Presently the database fields allow text only. Since our sites are primarily visual and members upload many pictures, we need a field that will allow these graphics to be placed in the chart. Thanks.
