Preview Edits NO Captcha & Vocabularies

1. Is there a way to DEACTIVATE the Captcha Function on the Preview post.
(In the GROUP.drupal.org creation of a group)

I'm NOT Saving my edited post yet. so i don't think i need to be checked if i'm a bot. At least I'm making Previews 1st before making a save. So that should relieve the Junk Data storage in the History and Server Functions.

2. While your at it; it would be nice to have the in Create etc... Be a Default HIDDEN. like the "Input format" & "File attachments" a lot of junk TAGS are being created in the [ Sitewide tags: ].

Request: change of group manager for western new york

Hi. There's a movement to change the Manager role for our group from me (@fending) to Nicholas Garafalo (@Eidolon Night) There has been the requisite discussion period and solicitation for feedback posted in our group.

I requested remaining in an admin role to help out, but Manager duties should fall to Nick as noted here and in the discussion: http://groups.drupal.org/node/285678

thanks!/BF

Merge both Bakersfield groups?

Congrats on the new group! I suggest merging this new group with the existing Antelope Valley / Bakersfield group. That group is fairly inactive but already has a couple members in it:

   http://groups.drupal.org/antelope-valley-bakersfield

What do you think?

FWIW, I couldn't find anything about this new Bakersfield group in the issue queue:

Expanding policy on removing group organizers

Currently, the only policy we have for removing group organizers on groups.drupal.org (GDO) is for abandoned groups. As the community and site grows, it's becoming clearer that GDO also needs a wider policy for removing group organizers. In some cases, we have orgaizers who haven't abandoned groups, but are otherwise harming the purpose of the site, facilitating collaboration within the Drupal community. In other cases, we have organizers of groups with no activity for over a year, clearly inactive, but we're still waiting 2 weeks.

Please explain.

Reporting Spam on Groups.Drupal.org

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.

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 Groups.drupal.org and Maintenance groups, but it's certainly possible that GDO would implement a particular feature in a different way from Commons.

Could we please have the "Don't send notifications for this edit" functionality on g.d.o?

Could someone easily roll out the "Don't send notifications for this edit" on this site, or is it a really complicated and involved process?

Duplicate Tri/Triad groups

TriaDUG appears to be 100% duplicate to http://groups.drupal.org/tridug

It will be merged into that group in one week unless there is a good reason for it

DO and GDO account mess....

Hey Maintenance group,

I was told by some other members this was the appropriate place to post this.

I have myself a well put together mess:

It is as follows:

I had originally created a DO account:
http://drupal.org/user/387227

later on during the GDO migration i believe i was forced to create another account with the exact same username, which left me with the following accounts:
NEW DO account: http://drupal.org/user/1184088 (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: http://groups.drupal.org/node/39596

The United Kingdom group is effectively abandoned, I have followed steps 1 to 3:
http://groups.drupal.org/node/207453

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.

Thanks!

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

Currently groups.drupal.org 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.
