I don't want to waste people's time, but I have searched all over. I moderate a community ~500. We have additional information that we want to associate with the G+ identity. What are the recommended / known ways to export a member list with G+ ID number?

Myself and at least one other MOD can do some scripting to parse it out of a file that includes too much, but the problem right now is getting one file with everything inside. The member page source seems to show an abbreviated list of what is actually displayed which confuses me.

In the community I own a join request was accidentally rejected. Is there a way to un reject the request and get it approved?

As long as they were not banned, they can also re-apply.  In such a case, you can put them in a temporary hold circle and PM them about the issue and have them RTJ again, or formally invite them.

Good morning..I have a question..
I'm a moderator of one community and i can't see the posts flagged as spam on my Android, so can't moderate the posts but other moderaters can see and moderate.. Could you tell me what's the reason behind it....I'll be very grateful to you...

Hi +surraya iftikhar. Make sure you have the most recent version of the Google+ app. Also, check to make sure that the app is using the Google account/Google+ profile that is the moderator. The most common reason people see something different like that on different devices is being signed in with the wrong account.

Is anyone else having this problem when moderating a community?
When I click on a category is is like it is the all categories tab. It makes no difference which category I am in or which community.
I tried to switch browsers but to no avail. Also under the red spam bar posts from 3 years ago are included.

I HAVE A QUESTION

I've noticed on some communities I moderate that the moderators can only ban or remove a member from a community, and on others it's possible to "promote to Owner".

I own two communities which the former function would be useful. Does anyone know how to "do this thing"?
Any help much appreciated!

Who also thinks it would be a good idea to ask google to provide owners/mods with a notification for when members are banned or removed and for ppl inviting others to the community, especially with private comms?

+John Skeats​ I agree. I se t a goolgeplus feedback report about that two days ago. But, I'm not 'dictating' google's policies.'. The more ppl send a similar report, the better.

I just started my community page a few weeks ago.  I've been getting a number of requests to join from business pages.  So far I haven't taken them, since when I go to their home page, it's nothing but advertising. I don't want my page turned into free advertising. Does anyone else let them in?

If I decide the ad is in accordance with the community, I may accept it. It depends as said above. As owner you decide.

I got a question, when going through a category yo can get a notice that says new post added.  You click on that notice and it will take you to the top of the category page, to see the new post.  Then the box changes to resume and you click that it takes you back to where your were.  It also leaves a little blue flag beside the post you left off with.  Is there a way to put a flag by a post? Sort of a bookmark for posts. It would be very helpful.

Help!!!! I think I may have accidentally deleted some member's posts which came in with the Google+ spam filters. I thought I clicked on the "accept" post, but I can not find them in the community. Is there any way to get them back?!

Yes, you right. The posts "reappeared" after a while. Whew!

Thanks, I will keep your information on hand. I did not see an "UNDO" message, after I thought I "accepted" them, so I guess they were in the community, but they just took time to reappear.

Thanks a lot!

Is it possible to change the order of a community's categories? I wish to add a category to a community, but I do not want to add it to the end, but in-between two categories. I am using the old Google+.

Hi, I'm handing down one of my communities to two people who I'm trying to promote to owner, but I keep getting a notification saying "Promote to owner failed". They've been moderators for a week. What do I need to do in order to promote them?

Who can remove a meber of a community from it? Can any moderator do that or is it the owner of the community who does that?

Good morning/day/evening! I have a question in regards to demotion/promotion:

So an owner accidentally demoted another owner. When they asked to be repromoted, the person who demoted them stated that it took a month to promote them again because Google Plus stuff. I state accidentally because we have our suspicions

Is this true?

Is there a way to prevent members of the community I own from blocking me or my mods?
I recently found out a member blocked me because he didn't like my opinion on a subject.
It doesn't seem like one should be able to block an owner or a mod.

Hey umm what's the difference between circles and following? I've been asked this a couple times and don't have a good answer thanks.

An important point not yet mentioned, is that in the original G+ system, Personal Profiles default to being added to Circles, and Business Pages default to being added to Following - and that was the easiest way to tell them apart.  That is still the case now in the Classic Interface on Desktop PC.  This relates to some of the above comments - when you posted to "your circles" the Business Pages that you put in your default "Following" circle could not see that information.  And this relates back to the original concept of circles and the 3 default ones given to a new account - Family, Friends, and Following.  If you used them as G+ intended, you put your Family members in Family, your Real Life friends and acquaintances in Friends, and anyone else (all People and Pages you met online) in Following.  Most everyone disregarded this concept and made such a mess of circles after that that G+ has had to get rid of circle sharing in response.

Hello everyone!
Translator does not work for translation of the community rules in the classic version nor in the new version. Right?

Glitch

This morning my G+ notifications indicated that there were two new posts to my community.

Here is the problem: I can access the two new posts through the notifications tool, but when I go to the Community, those two posts do not show up in the community.

Anyone else have something like this happen?

I am using the Classic G+ interface in the Chrome browser on a Mac.

+Mike Noyes I've been noticing that again for a couple of days - it used to be fairly common that a whole block of posts from maybe 3 days ago to yesterday would go missing, then reappear in a day or two. Seems to be happening again. It's not something we users are causing - just have to be patient. As you note, sometimes commenting on it, or playing with the OP will cause it to show again.

Hello everyone.
I was wondering how I could change the settings on my community so people could follow it, but not be able to post their own content. I, the owner, would be the only one able to post content. Thanks.

+Rich Koning That is how Answers to FAQs community works, but you can't have "followers" in that situation, like you can a Business Page.
