Notifications - email updates and their readability

I'm sure most of us here get daily update emails from g.d.o. and I'd guess many of you are, like me, mildly irked at trying to read them. I thought I'd take a stab at trying to lay them out so they're more readable.

In the long run, I'd like to see beautifully crafted HTML emails, but thought some small spacing and layout changes would be a lot quicker and easier to do than full-blown HTML.

Here are my main critiques of the email as it stands:

Drupal Code of Conduct / Values

Does Drupal has an established base Code of Conduct for geographical user groups?

It might sound surprising but it would be good to have one for the young community in Vietnam for example, as it's not necessarily understood per default. Maybe something similar to this but more adjusted for Drupal people:

Reporting Spam on

While g.d.o is headed towards a Drupal 7 launch on commons there is still some room for improvement of the Drupal 6 version of the site. As of November 7th, a new feature exists for fighting spam.

All "Editors" and "Spam fighters" on the site can now flag nodes and comments as spam. All Editors will see a block in the sidebar that shows any nodes or comments that has been flagged. They are encouraged to confirm the content is spam and then block the spammers.

Retrieving Posts from a Recently Deleted Group

I recently received an email notifying me that my group proposal "Students of Drupal" was denied because of a number of similar groups. I understand the reasons and have in fact been transferring my posts to the Drupal Dojo group but I haven't transferred all of them yet and I'm wondering how I can access the wiki's that I wrote. The email notification that I received mentions that "the posts inside the group are still available," but I'm unable to find them, any suggestions?

Stopping spammers on GDO

It is very obvious that GDO is receiving as much spam as real content. Especially by certain people believe that SEO is all about posting links on irrelevant sites.

Causing many issues created on GDO just for spam removal

For example the last 5 replies in a thread that I have subscribed to, are all spam, with a comment where the author tries to make it look like a relevant post, with no real content and a link to an irrelevant site

managing "promote to front" nodes on GDO

The DrupalCampOhio node was created in MAY and the camp is in DEC. The node is promoted to front page but the node is old. As a result the node is on page 2. Today we added a comment to the node to announce that registration is open. That would make this node not only promoted to front but also the most recently commented node in that class. This still results in the node being on page 2.

Still on the front page are nodes for events that have come and gone.

Policy Proposal for Closed (by request) Groups

The Problem
We currently don't have any guidelines on when Groups should be set to "Moderated - membership requests must be approved." On our Guidelines for Forming New Drupal Groups page it just says "Almost all groups should be open. Use other choices only when there is a good reason for doing so."

Commons Architecture issues posted

I've posted several issues for discussing the Commons 3.x (Drupal 7) architecture.

If you have input to share about the way we build Activity streams, the choice of base theme, the WYSIWYG editor or wiki functionality in Commons, now is the time to share your thoughts!

Edit: I've added this post to the and Maintenance groups, but it's certainly possible that GDO would implement a particular feature in a different way from Commons.

Proposal: Allow university/college-specific groups

In a discussion at DrupalCon about promoting Drupal adoption in colleges and universities, greggles, Peter Wolanin and I considered the benefit of approving college- and university-centric groups, even if there is already a regional group that might suit. My own feeling is that this would be a great idea.

Some reasoning bullet points:

  • It's in the Drupal community's interest to increase Drupal adoption by students.
  • College students can be rather provincial in activities (i.e., may not express interest in off-campus community events).

The guidelines for creating groups should be revised.

The guidelines presented on the group creation page do not fall in line with the approval process being enforced.


Groups should fall into one of three categories:
working group coordinating on a Drupal feature, module, or distribution
a geographical user-group such as users in a specific city
or a Drupal event organizing group such as a DrupalCON organizing group

I was just denied / had a group deleted because there weren't enough people "around" my module:

Another abuse of the Job content type
