On Repetitive Subscribe/Unsubscribe Activity On This or Any Groups.io Groups #adminnotice
What follows is a request that is for your benefit as a member, and the benefit for those who administer whatever groups you may be a member of on Groups.io.
Every time you subscribe anew, you are put back on moderated status until your first message is approved by the group owner or moderator. This is how Groups.io does things by default, and it's a great spam control mechanism. And if you unsubscribe, and later subscribe again, you are treated as though you are a brand new member and will be put on moderated status until your first message (for the most recent subscription cycle) is approved.
This can be easily avoided by not unsubscribing from a group if you decide you want a vacation from it for a while, but suspect you'll want to jump back in again later. Sending a message to email@example.com (or the equivalent for whatever group you wish to take a vacation from) will immediately suspend delivery of all group email to you, regardless of whether you were receiving it as individual messages, digests, or other format you chose. You can resume email participation again, without losing your member status or being subjected to new member moderation, if you use the nomail address to suspend messages. To jump back in again send a message to one of the following, depending on the message delivery you want:
Email from any Groups.io group can be managed that way for a group you really aren't intending to permanently leave. It makes your rejoining, when you do it, instantaneous with the same unmoderated status you had prior to stopping email delivery. It also makes it easier for group owners and moderators, who won't have to approve you again.
