The group to discuss administering the groups.drupal.org web site.

We also have an issue queue for the groupsorg.module that runs on this site for things that need code changes.

Template and sob story about denying vs. deleting vs. merging new groups

A group was in the moderation queue for a number of months and I just merged it with another group. Unfortunately, I did this before explaining in the moderation log what I was about to do. Deleting the group and merging it, of course, removed it from the moderation queue. Oops.

Here's the message I sent phunster, who proposed the group. It's here partly so that I have a template to reuse in the future.

blockquote>It turns out there is already an Upgrade group at http://groups.drupal.org/upgrade

Merge Silicon Valley User Group with South Bay California?

These two groups appear to overlap quite a bit and I propose that we merge them into one.

Here are the mission statements for each group:

Silicon Valley User Group:

The popularity and use of DRUPAL has grown by leaps and bounds; thanks to the vibrant community it has developed around it.

The South Bay DRUPAL meetup is another effort in building and strengthening the local Drupal Community.

South Bay California:

New admins/moderators needed for Drupal's Latin America group

Drupal adoption and use, and the community around it, are growing more and more. For example, there are good possibilities to celebrate the first DrupalCon Latino soon, probably the fourth quarter of this year 2012, in Brazil this first time.

There is another group for the DrupalCon Latin America organizers, while the Latin America group is more for the users of this and other community activities (drupalcamps, etc.).

Bluecheese available, but not default - help test

Hello maintainers,

The bluecheese theme (aka the theme you love on drupal.org and have been dying to get on groups.drupal.org) is now available for you to select in your profile. Got to your profile click the edit, scroll down, choose bluecheese, and poke around the site.

There's already a few things that need changing. See these issues first:

Strange thing happening when approving or denying requests to join a group

Hey gang, I just had a strange thing happen when trying to request membership in the http://groups.drupal.org/drupalorg-policies group. I applied to become a member, filled in the 'reason' box on the request-membership form, and submitted it.

Updated lots of modules - what's broken?

Hello,

Thanks to drumm for updating lots of modules on the site and getting it into bzr/jenkins like all the other sites.

Let's talk about what's broken and fix it.

  • We lost a few theme tweaks - I think we should not try to revive but instead should move to the new theme
  • We lost a few configurations from updates (vote up down was just gone from the site for a while, I fixed that).

What else is broken/missing?

Thanks

I want to Manage Drupal Bangladesh Group

As the Drupal Bangladesh Group is not active.
I want to mange this group from now on.
I am C, C++, Java & PHP programmer with 2 years of web developing experience.
I hope I could be a right option to maintain or manage "Drupal Bangladesh"

I've already opened a discussion on "Drupal Bangladesh" group page & sent a thread to the previous Group Organizer.

The thread is: http://groups.drupal.org/node/198063

I've opened a discussion in our language "Bangla" too.

The thread is: http://groups.drupal.org/node/198078

Made mboas an admin for Alaska

Since mboas is the only member posting recently and asked to be promoted to admin rather than forming a new group, I have fulfilled that request.

Group renamed to Brighton

At the request of stevepurkiss the "South East UK" group has been renamed to "Brighton" to make it easier to find.

Should all groups be "open"? What are valid reasons to make a group "closed"?

(Cross-posted because this is a g.d.o management issue as well as a g.d.o usage issue.)

I've noticed that several groups on g.d.o are set as closed membership (i.e., g.d.o members can't just join, they have to ask to join or be invited to join).

Very partial list of some closed groups, for illustration

group changed to "open"

Al groups should be "open" membership unless there is a very specific reason for them to be moderated. No group should be closed.

Getting a new group moderated

I started a new Drupal group for my area a little over a month ago (first meet up tonight!), but I'm noticing that the group is not in the main groups listing and has the moderation message at the top of it. Have I missed a step in setting up the group? Any way I can request to have it moderated into a "real" group? Thanks for any pointers!

OG admin in groups.drupal.org/la

Hi, was there a glitch on groups.drupal.org yesterday? I ask because christefano has appeared as a group admin for the groups.drupal.org/la group http://groups.drupal.org/og/users/3002. Neither I nor Mike Stewart (the other group admin) added him. Could you please look into how this happened, remove him as a group admin, and take any reasonable steps to prevent this happening again?

Thanks,
John

Publish statistics of local groups

Google analytics is running in g.d.o a lot of time ago but group organizers have not access to such information or a summary. Does that information is not relevant to our community? Which would be the best way to publish visitors statistics publicly?

How to block spammers on groups.drupal.org

This documentation has moved to the handbook on drupal.org:

The Quickstart group is now at http://groups.drupal.org/quickstart

The old path alias was a pain to type manually but I re-created it so it will continue to work.

Requesting the addition of Mark EWERS, westbywest, and OddSim as organizers of the St. Louis group. http://groups.drupal.org/st-louis

This group has been meeting monthly for the past year and a half, and all of the proposed organizers have been active in participating or organizing these meetups. The current group organizer djw2 no longer lives in St Louis and does not seek to be active in the group. See the discussion here: http://groups.drupal.org/node/123199

Got her ok here: http://groups.drupal.org/node/143524

Managing g.d.o., visible policies and procedures

I've not been a heavy-duty g.d.o user until recently, so it's often difficult for me to find things, like what "archiving" a group means.

http://groups.drupal.org/code-review is a beautifully-organized group home page, and I'd like to see this Maintenance group home page put all the "what's possible" and policy-related info in an obvious place. The About page does cover this somewhat, but it might need updating.
