    • DATABASES STILL PROBLEMS after revamping

      I appreciate yahoo trying to make the databases usable again

      Indeed there are many good things in the improvements and I appreciate you got us the French accented characters back again.

      However, the format is still difficult to read and use for following reasons:

      1/ column headings do not align with the actual columns as soon as you click on one of the columns to have it ordered. After reordering one column, column headings stay the same at the top but when you scroll down, column widths vary and no longer fit the headings!

      example: I try to sort out…

      • 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…

              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.

                  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.

                          • 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…

                                  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…

                                  • Yahoo! Groups Emails go to SPAM / BULK folders in Yahoo! Mail - Please fix

                                    Hi! Recently, many of our members are not receiving their individual posts or digests, only to later find them in SPAM. Especially when their email client is Yahoo!. Can you fix this? Seems silly that they are required to have a Yahoo! account to join a Yahoo! Group but then your own Mail system places emails from groups in to SPAM. This has increased recently to the point where people think they've been removed from the group because they aren't getting ANY mail in their inboxes. Thank you!

                                    • Please repair the time zone function. I have seen our reminders post for a different time zone than the one we chose.

                                      please repair the time zone function. I changed it just now to be a different time zone since the event reminders are posting for the wrong time. The system bumped out my change and put in a completely different one!!

                                      • Respected sir i have few suggestions to improve group.

                                        to improve groups you have to remove the following bugs.

                                        1) Unable to Edit some of the emails....
                                        i am unable to edit some emails. when i click on edit button , i cant write a single letter or remove a single word from that email , its like untouchable for me. i have only two option two approve that email or to delete it

                                        2) some times when i edit an email , and save it , the hotlinked images are gone after refreshing the page. and we miss all the beauty of that email. this happens to emails…
