Group coordinators and subgroups
I want to start a discussion around the behaviour for group coordinators and subgroups.
Currently, we're seeing people experiencing a problem: Any member of a group can start a subgroup, but the group coordinators don't have coordinator rights in the subgroup by default. We get many support requests from confused group coordinators asking why they can't do admin actions in threads which are in subgroups of their group.
I'm going to propose some changes to discuss:
- When a subgroup is created, the admins of the parent group are added to the subgroup (as coordinators) by default.
- If you are the admin of a group, you can always see, join, and then make yourself a coordinator of subgroups in your group.
The first suggestion could be a setting on the parent group. IE: By default, coordinators are added to new subgroups, but you can turn that off.
The second is a change in permissions that would not be optional.. IE: Coordinators can see all subgroups, and can always join and coordinator them if they wish.
What do you think about these ideas?
