Hi, please let us know how we can improve Groups.

Allow Search for "Moderated" or "Unmoderated" members

There are occasions when moderators really need to change the status of such members. When a group has more that 1000 members moderators can't easily find them all. This is especially important when a group gets out of control and the moderator needs to revoke the overrides on "Unmoderated" members.

It doesn't work to temporarily change the overall moderation status because "Unmoderated" members are special. The last time I tested, "Unmoderated" members could *always* post by email!

    yes, improvements are necessary to allow owners / moderators to easily search the member list.

    Because of Yahoo's inability to allow downloads of the member list & settings, they should make every column searchable.

    Hi Patty,

    This suggestion, if implemented, would allow you to pull up a list of Moderated (or Unmoderated) members. Your suggestion for a comment field is a good one. It deserves its own suggestion, I think. There would be a need to be able to search for members with comments. Another option would be request more control over who can view tables. It would be very useful to have a shared table visible only to group moderators and other tables visible to the whole group.

    We actually need a header for "Moderated" list members, so we can pull up ALL moderated list members, then include a Search field for that sub-set of list members. We need the option to place a Comment with a list member, when we place a member on moderated status, so we know why we moderated that list member. Right now, it is impossible to find list members that are moderated unless we know that list member's email address or Yahoo Groups ID.
