NEW DO account: (individual membership attached to this account, and all of my current community posts)

Change ownership of 'United Kingdom'

Hello, I'm following the 'Abandoned Groups: Policy for Deleting a Group or Changing Its Manager' here:

The United Kingdom group is effectively abandoned, I have followed steps 1 to 3:

And this is step 4, I now ask if you could transfer ownership of the group to me, and then I can add the other people that would like to be administrators.

Create a new "Jobs" group on g.d.o?

Currently has a "Job" content type available for content creators to use.

Due to the number of organizations looking to do hiring, the availability of this content type has resulted in an increasing number of Job content type nodes being posted into groups here where job postings reduce the effectiveness / usefulness of the group. Frequently (almost always?) the job postings are for positions that have very little to do with the subject matter of the group.

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.

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

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.).

Updated lots of modules - what's broken?


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?

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.

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

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!

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?
