Dear member of our "Information & Document Management" group on XING!
XING is preparing the launch of the new group software. The group software module is one of the oldest parts of XING (for those who didn't notice - our group just had it's 10 anniversary and there have not been any major changes in our group structure in the past 10 years).
The new release leads to major changes in our group.
# For better usage with mobile devices XING recommands (strongly) to use only 10 forums in a group. We will have to reduce the current amount of forums to ten. There will be new forums with new short titles and new scope (the description text of a forum will be no longer supported). The old forums will be deleted after some time. If you are interested in your own contributions, please look them up and save them on your computer.
# The new group functionality will no longer support our multi-lingual approach. Currently the team of moderators is discussing wether we continue the group using German or English (French and Spanish are already skipped). The majority of contributions is currently in German language.
Start page, group description, news, newsletter, welcome note and other descriptive texts will be only available in one language. Language identifiers will become obsolete. Multi-lingual news and newsletters are skipped. News and Newsletter will be only in the main language of the group.
# Due to the fact that always the newest post will control the sequence of the displayed forums in the app we might get in danger that advertisements, announcements and other stuff will be displayed on the start page of the app and real content and discussions might loose visibility. We are discussing wether to banish advertisements, webinar job offers, announcements, product announcements and other "advertorials" from our group at all.
# There will be no co-moderators in the future but only moderators. The founder of the group automatically becomes the owner and administrator.
# After the update (which we aspect soon) you will need to adjust your settings again not to be overwhelmed by messages. Invitations to events will be no longer controlled and selected by country/location/ZIP or language. You will receive all - or none, if you de-select the receipt of event invitations. Invitations will come only from the administrator and/or a moderator.
You are invited to comment on how we should organize our group in the future.
