[Solved, Groups Bug] delete update link available for non-admin members



  • Hi, I'm member of Qt German group and only see that for my posts.



  • I'm on a Mac with Safari 5. But I tried with Arora (webkit engine) and Firefox and have that links there too. They seem to appear on every group's update page.



  • For me is show only in my post where i'm not a owner, and when i'm a owner for every update.



  • Strange - let's wait what our beloved Trolls have to say :-)



  • Update: The link is visible on the iPhone too.



  • Volker Please, check "settings page":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/groups/qt_linux/settings, What do you see?



  • Very strange i try on ipad now and work normal.
    Are you sure you are not a onwer of that group? :P

  • Not that I'm aware of. The link is there even in groups where I am not a member (e.g. Qt Russia).



  • Its incredible, for me works normal. Are you a super power user? :)

    On that page I can only check wether I get email from this group or not. Nothing from the group owners options (invite people, group name/description, policies, etc.) are there for me in the Qt Linux group.



  • But WAIT! You are a gene splicer!
    Gene Splicer: can become moderator of the whole forum
    Maybe is for this reason!

  • stuk, I thought on the Gene Splicer thingy too, but then Chetan should have that links too, as he is Mad Scientist. Also, I can become moderator of the whole forum, but I did not apply yet :-)



  • But may become does not say, will be.
    I thought you have to query for that (so ask the trolls)...



  • For me this 'can become' is mean 'will become', is only for a better write of the phrase.
    Ok, i will try some troll for some clarify.

  • Marius not available today.

    stuk "can become" is mean "can become", if he want, if trolls accept him, etc...



  • This sounds like a bug, we will have a look. Having a rank is not enough to get moderation powers, they are all manually assigned by a troll admin.

    Thanks for digging into it and trying on various browsers and devices, very helpful.



  • I just tried with IE8 on Windows XP - the same, links are present. Seems to be some weirdness with my account.

    Some more stats:

    I have the link in all but these two groups:
    Site Moderators
    Qt Ambassadors

    I couldn't check these two groups, as they do not have updates yet:
    Mobile Developers
    Qt Romania



  • Volker, please look into mobile devs. I've left test there for you.



  • Denis, no link there. I have a guess, but need to verfy - stay tuned.



  • Ok, i don't understand this, thank's for the clarify.

  • The guess was wrong :-(
    I thought the link is there in all groups that have a forum, but I have the link in Python Devel too, which does not have a forum. And there is no link in Qt Ambassadors, although it does have a forum.

    I was wrong. I got the link, once I reloaded the page.

    Although I can say, it does not work:

    bq. The form you submitted contained the following errors
    You do not have access to perform this function



  • Thank you all for spotting this issue,

    This was a bug , confirmed :)

    I have fixed it, but please test it and see if you still see it somewhere please respond here.

    Have fun and a nice weekend :)



  • Gurudutt, confirmed, the links are finally gone. Thanks and have a nice weekend!
