  2. 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.

  3. 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…

  4. 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.

  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. Please do not truncate or shorten the subject heading of group messages as it appears on the conversation view.

    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.

  10. Our reminders are coming out with a completely wrong time from the actual times of the events in the calendar, which is causing confusion.

    Our reminders are coming out with a completely different time for the events than what is in the calendar-it is just randomly making up times! This is causing mush confusion. Please Fix!

  11. 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.

  12. 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…

  16. "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!

  17. 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…

  18. 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!
