  1. Group Website

    Hi !
    In the control panel, in About Group, in "Group Website:" section, I have an error message when type my website with the ".ws" extention.
    Error message (in red letters): "Group website is invalid".
    But my website exists:

    http://www.webcamdolls.ws

    When I save changes, it's ok, the link works, but why is there an error message ?

    Thanks in advance

    Best Regards

    Anna

    • Fix the scroll function

      Again I ask that the scroll function be repaired so that people can scroll down through ALL messages without being shunted back to the top. Your message board is frustrating to use and as a result my desire to be here is very limited. Pity, because I really need the help offered by the group I am trying to use for a serious health issue. Come on, people, this is the 21st century. We have the technology to accomplish this very simple thing.

      • 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…

        • 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.

              • Replies to Yahoo Groups puts 'garbage' in plain text alterative

                This is a bug in how Yahoo Mail sends replies to messages sent by Yahoo Groups. The bug is on the Yahoo Mail side. Presumably it could happen when encountering other data as well.

                This bug happens when replying using Yahoo Mail (full featured) to a Yahoo Groups message. It appears to be caused when objects of the Yahoo Groups footer are encountered when sending replies.

                These objects are stripped out of the HTML alternative. (That is good.)

                However, the "Style" information that presumably belongs at the end of HTML alternative is added to the end of the Plain Text…

                    • Unable to upload files

                      When I try to upload files to the Files section of the groups, I get a purple bar that reads, "An error occurred when trying to upload this content." This has happened on and off for months. What is the error, exactly? The files are not too large, and there's plenty of space on the groups. This time I waited 24 hours before trying again, but the problem is still there. This is very annoying.

                      Similarly, on and off I get an error when trying to delete files. Why hasn't this been fixed?

                      The problems exist in both Firefox and…

                      • Cannot Correct the Time Zone Selection

                        I cannot correct the Time Zone setting for my mail nor my Group. Even when I select my correct TZ from the dropdown list, it still shows GMT for my Time Zone, and all items (such as Group Events) show oddball times (which probably would be correct if I lived in England, but I don't). Several other members of my Group report the same TZ bug, and the bug appears for IE, Firefox and Chrome browsers.

                        • Search Only retrieving Posts up to 11/25/15 - nothing more recent

                          Search conversations is only pulling up search results up to 11/25/15 and nothing more recent. Can you escalate to product specialists? This has happened once before after NEO was implemented and they were able to fix this. Seems like a bug. Thank you! Keep groups strong! We love them!

                                      I can click on the ... and then Edit, and can even make the changes to the post I want to edit. When I click Save, however, I get this error message:

                                      I tried on a PC, using Chrome and Firefox. A co-moderator tried on a Mac, using Firefox and Safari.

                                      • Directory is broken

                                        Why are groups which are NOT in the adult section disappearing from the directory? I am a member of several advice groups, all in the NON-adult section of Romance & Relationships. Among them are

                                        https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/realadviceforreallove/info

                                        https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/whatdomenwantanyways2/info

                                        https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/whatdomenwantanyways2/info

                                        and my own group,

                                        https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/Advice_for_Living_and_Loving/info

                                        No one can find us, and all of the above except for my own group have had little or no activity since this started. Can we get these groups back into the directory?

                                        Again, these are NOT in the adult section of Romance & Relationships.

                                        • PLEASE fix the broken calendar/events feature!

                                          I can hardly believe how badly broken the calendar/events features became in mid-summer... and still broken. Many of my groups don't show up as mergeable in calendar.yahoo.com, one of my groups won't let us into the calendar page at all, and another one shows September events but nothing for following months. This has been reported for months now and still it's hopelessly broken.
