A great way to improve groups........ Answered

Here is a great idea to improve groups. anybody in a group can add ibles to that group, even though they are not moderators and the owner is not a group member. my ible got added to the "worst instructables ever" group, and I can't remove it. so, I was thinking that when somebody tries to add someone else's ible to a group, a request will be sent to the author to confirm or deny. good idea, huh?

You can always remove it later. I think its fine the way it is. Its really good for categorizing things after the author has left or something...

Not stalking, watching.

Rather than an email request (way too much work), maybe an email notification. But that wouldn't have worked in your unique situation, since the original "author" is now unavailable for comment.

That would also mean that projects by other members who had drifted off (this mortal coil) would also be prevented from being added to any new, relevant groups.

So, I think the best option is to have notification without requesting. If a member feels protective about their work, they will keep their account open, and if they don't want their work in the group, they can always join the group and remove it, or PM the group's author and ask to have it removed.

If you're saying that someone added one of coolz's instructables to a group that you don't want them in, I'd have to say "too bad". I think you kind of gave up any right to any content done under coolz when you did what you did.

I'd have phrased "too bad" differently but I agree.

It's not that shameful, TimAnderson has i'Bles in it, and imho quite a few of the instructables in it are pretty good.

Actually its not a bad idea, most people when they add an instructable to a group they usually ask the ibler. But there are a few with a little less common courtesy..
