Who makes the decision to highlight a particular group in the emails that go out from AARP to the community users? Apparently by the number of emails I’ve received over the past few days, 26 in the past three days to this writing, the group “Single and Mingle” was recently highlighted. I CAN’T TELL YOU HOW IRRITATING THIS IS. It is only irritating because I as the administrator was not, NOR HAVE I EVER BEEN, given the courtesy (key word here COURTESY) of a “heads up” for it and it’s been done in this group numerous times before. With the number of spammers and scammers that are prevalent on this site I must attempt (for what THAT’S worth) to check all the profiles of people joining the group. Even then, because there is no encouragement from the website to create anything on one’s profile page about themselves when joining the community, there is little one can do to identify a community user as a spammers or scammers. And why THIS particular weekend? I happen to be very active in my spiritual life and had I been given the courtesy (again, key word here COURTESY) of a “heads up” I would have asked for a postponement for a week. This is a bad weekend for me to be monitoring the membership directory of a group on the AARP website.
I know this probably sounds like simple venting by a disgruntled user or group administrator, but I could easily believe other group administrators have had the same frustrations. I’d really like to hear a reply from one of our community managers, either here or in a private message through the community message center.
