I came across http://www.librarything.com/topic/36659 thread, and see that the ability to flag groups seemingly came... and went. Any idea why? Was there discussion elsewhere that shot it down, or was there loss of support/interest from the site?
ugh - edited to say that I wish I could correct my topic line to read "spam groups" - ugh
It never worked right, Tim didn't seem to believe that it never worked right and thus nobody ever looked at it to fix it, and it just ended up going away altogether when tagging of groups was introduced.
It's a shame, because flagging, when it did work, actually hid the groups from the main groups page.
Yes, tagging groups doesn't do anything except make me feel good for the second it takes me to add the tag. I see some spam groups that have been tagged 15 times - and more - and while the member who started the group might actually have been removed, the group remains.
So, another "new feature" that is kaput without even a "in two weeks" promise... okay, I see.
Flagging of groups younger than 30 days is now active. I'm going to look at hiding them by default.
Yeah. Me in as my wife—who has no admin privileges.
So, it's now active. Spam groups are hidden from new list, if the user is signed out (ie., if you're Google), but remain on--with a little flag--if you are. There are other rules, but I won't reveal them. Anyway, it now helps. Let's see what effect will be.
Off to kill tagged groups. Killed.
Axel's dead, alas. Utterly devastating when it happened. He was the best dog ever. I know that sounds utterly silly to say, but if there were any way of confirming it, I'd gladly bet my bank account on it. An irish stray--habitually beaten--that Lisa rescued/stole from Ireland. It's quite a story, and he was quite a dog.
9: Aw, Tim. I'm so sorry. I know the feeling, and sad to say, am about to go through the same thing some 13 years after I said I'd never go through it again.
