Edited to update info about the report function in groups: OK group members and group admins. (We used to be called group owners but I think that language has disappeared now? I always thought that was strange anyway.) I'm an admin of the SOS group for SOs of PMO addicts. How many groups have noticed that we can now have our own forums, private inside our groups, rather than posting on the member wall? The main benefit to this is that we no longer have to limit our comments on posts to something like 244 characters. It basically looks exactly like the main forums but it's inside our group. Apparently this capability came about with the website changes that happened about a month or more ago? Not sure. I had no idea we could start our own forums until @matthewmammothrept said something about it so I tried it yesterday and, yep, it does work. However, we're noticing multiple technical issues that I want to alert @matthewmammothrept and other group admins too. Anybody else noticing these same things or other issues? Note that the team is working on fixes for some but not all of these but I wasn't sure if they would get fixed in the forums as well. I've bolded the main issues. The notifications in group forums are inconsistent. I've received some notifications on new threads I've created in the group forum or threads created by others that I have commented on, but mostly I don't get any notification. And these threads are marked as "watched" by me. And I don't think it's in my setting either because I do get notifications for watched threads in the main forums as well as in the old member wall of the group. It's been difficult for our members to find the forums, especially on their phones. The work around I came up with was to pin a post to the top of the member wall, the first page you see when you go to the group and the wall where we were doing all our communication, with a link to the forums and a message about transitioning to the forums. That is working for now. When we post in the new forum, it creates some kind of green icon/post in the old member wall. No problem except two weird things. One, with the default setting to post items in that area as public (although I am told it isn't actually public, there is a concern from members) the post shows up as public. Secondly, it's weirdly inconsistent. Not all posts get this same treatment. Not really a problem, I don't think, but worth mentioning. Just to highlight our main concern with this, the members of SOS group want to make sure that the forums are private. Also, in the old group format, there used to be a list of group admins. That seemed useful in case a member wanted to reach out to one of the admins. FYI that has disappeared. We're coming up with a work around to make sure our members know who the admins are. Finally, as an admin I can no longer edit posts or comments. The nofap team is aware of this. In the forums I see I can delete or report posts but I can only edit my own comments or posts. Which is more than I could do on the member wall where we used to post. In the past, I only used the edit function once, when a member accidentally used a real name, so I went in and took that out. But editing a post or comment could also be used if someone says something inappropriate. However, with the new forums in groups it is possible we could simply use the report function and leave it up to the nofap mod team, if that's agreeable to everyone. Honestly, I don't have a problem with that since I don't have a lot of time to spend policing the group. (Not that we have really needed that much or at all.) The good news is, they did fix the issue where we were not able to pin posts! That works now in the old area and also in the forums. (It's called sticky.) Group admins and owners, I'm curious, how many other groups knew they could create forums in groups now? Any other groups now using forums? If so have you noticed these or other issues? Also, thank you very much to NoFap for giving groups the ability to have their own forums! The old format really was a pain and this is much nicer. If we could get these issues fixed, it will be way cool! Also, sorry to keep bringing this topic up, but the squeaky wheel gets the grease, right?
