Re: PB40 group platform and technology upgrade #moderation

 

Hi @Jay Glicksman   I hope all the archives here will transfer over. It is important that groups like this have "a memory" and that is actually one of the problems with trying to do this on social media - along with lots of other problems, things get "buried" in the stream pretty quickly - and some of what gets buried is really important. That is not too much of a problem for people who have been members for a long time - they have their own human memory, but it means that new people have to "start from scratch" to find out who does what and who is interested in what.  There is nothing wrong with replying to an old message if your reply is relevant.   That being said, there was a problem when I did this upgrade for my business group - it has to be in unix mbox format but the file got corrupted and I couldn't make it work so launched without it.  I hope it works this time, so knock on wood. 

As for the subgroups they work right now, but no one is in them yet.  I intend to work mostly on the PB40 Bike Club list and Pool Sharks and Wannabes - so we can hopefully have more of the "Pool Nights" that @David Claussen has been organizing.   The subgroups are just the areas where I think most people have expressed interests - some of them might not work but if not we will just try something else.   I wouldn't mind getting a "hacker beach volleyball" game going at some point - see if my aging body can still do that game.  That was mentioned early on in this group but I don't think it ever happened.  I think you mentioned on one of the bike rides that is a game you enjoy also.  Anyway, appreciate your support.  Feel free to use this list if anything else comes up - it will be a week or so until the new system is in place and this won't be shut down for at least a month.

Cheers

Rob

Hi Everyone,


As promised, I FINALLY got around to configuring an upgrade for this Google Group and all members will be migrated to the new platform.  There is no action you need to take - the upgrade will happen automatically but will take a week or so.  Once it is up and running this Google Group will be shut down. I want to organize a bike ride this weekend so may use it one more time if it is not ready by then, but within a few weeks, it will be shut down and shortly after that deleted entirely.  If you have posted any photos you here that you didn't save elsewhere please download them before that. 


The rest of this message describes the technology and how it is organized, but you don't need to read it unless you want.  It is also email based and is really simple to use.  Some people will likely drop out during this upgrade - that happened when I did a similar upgrade for my small business group, but we quickly regained even more new members and it has been growing ever since.  If you don't want to participate in this upgrade please unsubscribe from this Google Group before noon tomorrow when I plan to start the process.  


Organizing this group initially and now rebuilding it has taken an enormous amount of time and energy, and I want to express sincere gratitude to those who acknowledged that - even in small ways. I always do my best to give credit where credit is due and don't tend to blow my own horn too much, so that has meant the world to me.  Everyone has something different to contribute and this is mine.  We all know it is not easy to make adult friends in PB - that's why at events I am seldom in the center of the action but rather looking for people on the outside of the group who don't know anyone. It's not totally selfless - I know how uncomfortable it can be to be left out of a group so I often do the same at business events - and I have met some amazing people that way.  It is also why when I wrote up the initial "organizing principles" for this group I said that being "welcoming and inclusive" should be our highest value and I would like to continue in that spirit. 


I hope everyone's week is off to a good start.  I will be seeing some of you on the other side.

Overview


The new system will be a combination of a few different technologies to allow us to easily plan events and communicate with each other, but the central piece will be on the "Groups.io" platform.  As with Google Groups, this is email based but gives you much more control over your account, what you see and how you interact with other members.  This technology is made by the same developer who made the original Yahoo Groups, and is an evolution of that listserve technology - it does not monitor user behavior or use an algorytym to determine what you see, and there is no advertising on the platform. The best way to think of it is as simple as a "shared email list".   


Domain and website


Because obscure urls are difficult to communicate except by email or text the "PB40 dot club" name can be used to refer new members to this group.  This is the name I coined shortly after starting this group and used it when I bought this domain last summer.  The only hard part is remembering that it is "dot club" and not "dot com".   There is really nothing there yet, but there will be by the time the migration is complete.  While putting this together, I realized I needed a "cover image" and had no idea which of the many photos I had was most appropriate so I made a "collage" of the events that we organized using this Google Group.  Take a look for yourself at the link below - those are just some of the events that were organized here and nowhere else.  While some people complained about this group, lots of people met each other through this that might not have otherwise:


PB40.club


Semi-independent subgroups


The Groups.io platform fits well with the original goals of this group - to allow everyone to be a leader and to organize events - large and small, for this neighborhood whenever they want and to be highly "inclusive" so that no one is left out.  I like it also because it can be set up to be "interest based" - with subgroups that act as independent mailing lists and "tags" that can be about anything you want.  If this is too complicated than just don't worry about it - posts can always be categorized later and messages will go out to everyone anyway, unless they have expressly excluded themselves from an interest.


To get started I have set up seven of these subgroups based on the survey of member interests we did a few months ago and a review of the interests that have been expressed in posts here.  Please understand that this does not limit us in any way - you can still send a message to everyone regardless of interest - and we can start more subgroups if we want, or eliminate ones that aren't working.  In addition, if these interests don't fit your interests there is also a "tagging" system where you can express just about any interest you want.  Still, these lists should be a fun way to connect with others in this neighborhood with similar interests.  


I'll drink to that!

https://pb40.groups.io/g/drinks

This group is for people who enjoy having a drink or two with friends, and who like PB's many fine bars and taverns.  It is for planning happy hours and other events where the drinks are front and center, as well as nights, where you would like to go out for drinks, and would like someone to join you. To post to this group simply send a message to: dri...@PB40.groups.io


The PB40 Bike Club

https://pb40.groups.io/g/bike

This group is for all things bicycle: planned rides, ideas for rides and questions about bike riding in the area of any kind: road trips, trail riding or beach cruising.   

To use this group simply send and email message to bi...@PB40.groups.io


PB Food, Cooking & Dining Connoisseurs

https://pb40.groups.io/g/foodies

This group is for foodies!  Those who enjoy fine dining, as well as those who appreciate a good hamburger or fish tacos from time to time.  Feel free to post your thoughts on local restaurants, your favorite recipes, potluck dinner plans or cooking and dining partners.  To post to this group simply send a message to foo...@PB40.groups.io


Pool Sharks and Wannabes

https://pb40.groups.io/g/pool

This group is for anyone who likes to play pool and can be used to organize more "pool nights" like the ones we have had at Society PB.  All skill levels welcome and this can be for games in local taverns or in pool halls.  To post to this group simply send a message to po...@PB40.groups.io


The PB Bookworm Club

https://pb40.groups.io/g/books

This group is for people who love books!  We have had a huge amount of interest in this and want to make sure we organize it in a way that is truely inclusive.  This can be used for book recommendations, talking about books you are reading and forming "book clubs" - large or small, where you agree to read a certain book before a certain date. To post to this group simply send a message to books@PB40.groups.io


PB Health & Fitness Buffs

https://pb40.groups.io/g/health

This group is for exercise, heath and fitness - in all its varous forms, and for finding workout partners or organizing exercise events.  To post to this group simply send a message to: hea...@PB40.groups.io


PB Makers and Creators

https://pb40.groups.io/g/arts

This group is for the artists and creators in Pacific Beach and nearby neighborhoods.   It can be used planning art related events ans will as discussion of arts, crafts, inventions and DIY projects.   To post to this group simply send a message to ar...@PB40.groups.io


Even if you post to one of these subgroups everyone in the main PB40 group will still get the message, but they are given the option to block messages from groups where they have no interest.  For example, someone who does not drink may not want to get messages from people wanting to go out for drinks, or someone who does not own a bicycle may not be interested in biking group events, etc. 


Interest Hashtags


Posts and messages can also use hashtags for less common interests.  For example, we have a few members who expressed an interest in "rollerblading" but probably not enough to form a subgroup list yet.  Unlike Google Groups, the hashtags are put right in the title, making it something like a tweet.  It works the same way the subgroups do - people can block hashtags that don't interest them.  I have come up with 27 hashtags to get started - everything from #cannabis to #volleyball.  The list is made from interests that were expressed or tags that were actually used on this group but I couldn't possibly identify all possible interest so feel free to make up you own.  The complete list is at this link. https://pb40.groups.io/g/everyone/hashtags


Again, if all this is too much, simple don't worry about it - hopefully it will make more sense once this is up and running.  To send a message to everybody simple send an email to ever...@PB40.groups.io


Thanks again for your continued support - I look forward to meeting more of you.

Re: PB40 group platform and technology upgrade #moderation

 

Thanks a bunch, @Deb Watson  - and yes, you were one on the people I was thinking of when I wrote that.  Although I only met you briefly I do remember how you went out of your way to thank me for organizing the happy hour at Silver Fox - as you have done a few times here, and I remember thinking then what I still think now - that you are a real class act.

I made a half-joking post on Twitter not too long ago that saying "thank you" is one of the most selfish things you can do.  Why?  because it is free, takes almost no effort, yet pays back in spades.  I briefly recounted the story of a boss I had when I worked in Silicon Valley.   Whenever I sent him a completed report by email he would respond with a one-word reply of "thank you". He couldn't possibly have read it in the short time it took him to reply, so he was thanking me for the effort of writing the report - not making a statement of whether it was any good or not, which we would discuss later.  That small act of courtesy made me uncharacteristicly loyal to this particular boss. 

Remembering that, I sometimes go out of my way to say thank you to people who don't hear it too often. For example, my web hosting company is in Kazakhstan and every Christmas eve I send them an email thanking them for keeping everything running while the rest of the world is enjoying the holidays.  I even wrote then a stupid poem once, "Twas the night before Christmas, and all through the world, not a creature was stirring, but the servers still whirled" - or something silly like that.  Apparently not too many people do that, and though it wasn't my intention, now when I get stuck on some technical issue and send an email asking for help, I often wake up the next morning and find a fully configured applications - which is WAY above the call of duty for a cheap web hosting company.

Didn't mean to go off on such a digression, but yes, it should be fun times.  Enjoy your evening and the rest of the week :-)

Posts and messages can also use hashtags for less common interests.  For example, we have a few members who expressed an interest in "rollerblading" but probably not enough to form a subgroup list yet.  Unlike Google Groups, the hashtags are put right in the title, making it something like a tweet.  It works the same way the subgroups do - people can block hashtags that don't interest them.  I have come up with 27 hashtags to get started - everything from #cannabis to #volleyball.  The list is made from interests that were expressed or tags that were actually used on this group but I couldn't possibly identify all possible interest so feel free to make up you own.  The complete list is at this link. https://pb40.groups.io/g/everyone/hashtags


Again, if all this is too much, simple don't worry about it - hopefully it will make more sense once this is up and running.  To send a message to everybody simple send an email to ever...@PB40.groups.io


Thanks again for your continued support - I look forward to meeting more of you.

Hi Everyone,


As promised, I FINALLY got around to configuring an upgrade for this Google Group and all members will be migrated to the new platform.  There is no action you need to take - the upgrade will happen automatically but will take a week or so.  Once it is up and running this Google Group will be shut down. I want to organize a bike ride this weekend so may use it one more time if it is not ready by then, but within a few weeks, it will be shut down and shortly after that deleted entirely.  If you have posted any photos you here that you didn't save elsewhere please download them before that. 


The rest of this message describes the technology and how it is organized, but you don't need to read it unless you want.  It is also email based and is really simple to use.  Some people will likely drop out during this upgrade - that happened when I did a similar upgrade for my small business group, but we quickly regained even more new members and it has been growing ever since.  If you don't want to participate in this upgrade please unsubscribe from this Google Group before noon tomorrow when I plan to start the process.  


Organizing this group initially and now rebuilding it has taken an enormous amount of time and energy, and I want to express sincere gratitude to those who acknowledged that - even in small ways. I always do my best to give credit where credit is due and don't tend to blow my own horn too much, so that has meant the world to me.  Everyone has something different to contribute and this is mine.  We all know it is not easy to make adult friends in PB - that's why at events I am seldom in the center of the action but rather looking for people on the outside of the group who don't know anyone. It's not totally selfless - I know how uncomfortable it can be to be left out of a group so I often do the same at business events - and I have met some amazing people that way.  It is also why when I wrote up the initial "organizing principles" for this group I said that being "welcoming and inclusive" should be our highest value and I would like to continue in that spirit. 


I hope everyone's week is off to a good start.  I will be seeing some of you on the other side.

Overview


The new system will be a combination of a few different technologies to allow us to easily plan events and communicate with each other, but the central piece will be on the "Groups.io" platform.  As with Google Groups, this is email based but gives you much more control over your account, what you see and how you interact with other members.  This technology is made by the same developer who made the original Yahoo Groups, and is an evolution of that listserve technology - it does not monitor user behavior or use an algorytym to determine what you see, and there is no advertising on the platform. The best way to think of it is as simple as a "shared email list".   


Domain and website


Because obscure urls are difficult to communicate except by email or text the "PB40 dot club" name can be used to refer new members to this group.  This is the name I coined shortly after starting this group and used it when I bought this domain last summer.  The only hard part is remembering that it is "dot club" and not "dot com".   There is really nothing there yet, but there will be by the time the migration is complete.  While putting this together, I realized I needed a "cover image" and had no idea which of the many photos I had was most appropriate so I made a "collage" of the events that we organized using this Google Group.  Take a look for yourself at the link below - those are just some of the events that were organized here and nowhere else.  While some people complained about this group, lots of people met each other through this that might not have otherwise:


PB40.club


Semi-independent subgroups


The Groups.io platform fits well with the original goals of this group - to allow everyone to be a leader and to organize events - large and small, for this neighborhood whenever they want and to be highly "inclusive" so that no one is left out.  I like it also because it can be set up to be "interest based" - with subgroups that act as independent mailing lists and "tags" that can be about anything you want.  If this is too complicated than just don't worry about it - posts can always be categorized later and messages will go out to everyone anyway, unless they have expressly excluded themselves from an interest.


To get started I have set up seven of these subgroups based on the survey of member interests we did a few months ago and a review of the interests that have been expressed in posts here.  Please understand that this does not limit us in any way - you can still send a message to everyone regardless of interest - and we can start more subgroups if we want, or eliminate ones that aren't working.  In addition, if these interests don't fit your interests there is also a "tagging" system where you can express just about any interest you want.  Still, these lists should be a fun way to connect with others in this neighborhood with similar interests.  


I'll drink to that!

https://pb40.groups.io/g/drinks

This group is for people who enjoy having a drink or two with friends, and who like PB's many fine bars and taverns.  It is for planning happy hours and other events where the drinks are front and center, as well as nights, where you would like to go out for drinks, and would like someone to join you. To post to this group simply send a message to: drinks@PB40.groups.io


The PB40 Bike Club

https://pb40.groups.io/g/bike

This group is for all things bicycle: planned rides, ideas for rides and questions about bike riding in the area of any kind: road trips, trail riding or beach cruising.   

To use this group simply send and email message to bike@PB40.groups.io


PB Food, Cooking & Dining Connoisseurs

https://pb40.groups.io/g/foodies

Pool Sharks and Wannabes

https://pb40.groups.io/g/pool

This group is for anyone who likes to play pool and can be used to organize more "pool nights" like the ones we have had at Society PB.  All skill levels welcome and this can be for games in local taverns or in pool halls.  To post to this group simply send a message to pool@PB40.groups.io


The PB Bookworm Club

https://pb40.groups.io/g/books

This group is for people who love books!  We have had a huge amount of interest in this and want to make sure we organize it in a way that is truely inclusive.  This can be used for book recommendations, talking about books you are reading and forming "book clubs" - large or small, where you agree to read a certain book before a certain date. To post to this group simply send a message to books@PB40.groups.io


PB Health & Fitness Buffs

https://pb40.groups.io/g/health

This group is for exercise, heath and fitness - in all its varous forms, and for finding workout partners or organizing exercise events.  To post to this group simply send a message to: health@PB40.groups.io


PB Makers and Creators

https://pb40.groups.io/g/arts

This group is for the artists and creators in Pacific Beach and nearby neighborhoods.   It can be used planning art related events ans will as discussion of arts, crafts, inventions and DIY projects.   To post to this group simply send a message to arts@PB40.groups.io


Even if you post to one of these subgroups everyone in the main PB40 group will still get the message, but they are given the option to block messages from groups where they have no interest.  For example, someone who does not drink may not want to get messages from people wanting to go out for drinks, or someone who does not own a bicycle may not be interested in biking group events, etc.

TONIGHT: Dancing and Dive Bars (PB Locals) #dancing #drinks

Rob Gordon
 

FYI: I just came across this group on Meetup.com while working on my self-employed group on that platform. I have other plans for this evening, but it does sound like fun - they will be starting at the Silver Fox at 7 pm and hitting a bunch of neighborhood dancing and dive bars.   This was not organized by PB40 - it is some group called "PB Locals" with almost 600 members - looks like they organize events about once a month including walks on the bay and that kind of thing.   Here is the event link with more information if you are looking for something to do tonight:


Rob

P.S.  I have FINALLY finished configuring a new platform for PB40 as promised a few months ago.  I will announce and describe either tomorrow evening or sometime early next week. 


Re: WEDNESDAY: Pool Night at Society PB #pool

 

Hi Heidi - no worries - there will be more.  You have some fun ideas and I am sure you will find some takers here :-)

As for "Kick this week's ass" I am trying - but I am afraid so far it is kicking mine - LOL.

Remember everyone else - Wednesday early evening at Society - swing by if you can.

Rob

 Hi Everyone - hope you had a nice weekend,


I wanted to let you know that we will be having another "PB40 Pool Night" at Society on Garnet Wednesday, February 27th from 5 pm till 8 pm. This will be hosted by David Claussen, as the others have been. He rents the first table and then people who come either chip in or rent there own tables after that - it doesn't cost too much. This is a low key, but fun event.  Playing on the larger tables is a different experience and there should be some happy hour specials.  Try to make it for a game or two if you can - all skill levels are welcome.  


Hope to see you there.


Rob


P.S.  I know I have said it before, but I will be replacing this platform and this will likely be the last event we promote here. I want to get back to planning more bike rides ( I was going to try but both weekends were pouring)  I would also like to organize a "hacker" beach volleyball game and maybe some more happy hours at new places, and of course, I hope David keeps this Pool Night going.  The point is setting up systems where anyone can be a leader and organize events or gatherings - not that there be one giant "group" with a single leader.  The new platform will allow people to make individual mailing lists for the interests that people have expressed here - so, for example, we can have a bike rides list, but people not interested in bike rides - same thing with other interests that have been expressed here - music, working out, racquet sports, rollerblading, books clubs, whatever - we just want to make sure things are as inclusive as possible. I am going to try to get this going this week and no one will need to take any action - it should all happen automatically.

Re: WEDNESDAY: Pool Night at Society PB #pool

 

Hi @Val Turner  don't worry we will be having more bike rides - the weather was just terrible on the days I wanted to do that, plus my year got off to a slow start - seems like everyone I know says the same thing.  You don't need to know how to play pool to play pool - that is one of the nice things about the game - lol.   @David Clausson has offered to give tips/lessons to newer players if you want.  The is not a raucous party or anything - just a low key gathering.  Come on down for a game and a drink or two - bring your husband if he is into it. 

Cheers

Rob

This is a low key, but fun event.  Playing on the larger tables is a different experience and there should be some happy hour specials.  Try to make it for a game or two if you can - all skill levels are welcome.  


Hope to see you there.


Rob


P.S.  I know I have said it before, but I will be replacing this platform and this will likely be the last event we promote here. I want to get back to planning more bike rides ( I was going to try but both weekends were pouring)  I would also like to organize a "hacker" beach volleyball game and maybe some more happy hours at new places, and of course, I hope David keeps this Pool Night going.  The point is setting up systems where anyone can be a leader and organize events or gatherings - not that there be one giant "group" with a single leader.  The new platform will allow people to make individual mailing lists for the interests that people have expressed here - so, for example, we can have a bike rides list, but people not interested in bike rides - same thing with other interests that have been expressed here - music, working out, racquet sports, rollerblading, books clubs, whatever - we just want to make sure things are as inclusive as possible. I am going to try to get this going this week and no one will need to take any action - it should all happen automatically.

We wish you all a very merry xmas!
