Is it possible to review a business or online business if they have not added their business to (not sure what). What I meant is that you can easily review those who have details of their business. What about those that do not have on google?

I want to add text into the image, before posting it.
On the old interface this was possible.
Thanks...

Events question: will the new Events allow for smaller banner images? The current version requires uploaded images to be enormously wide: 1200 x 300.

This seems like massive overkill - especially on mobile platforms. I have a custom banner I like to use, but there's just no way I can get it that wide and still look good.

Please tell me there's good news on this front! ;-)

Hi,

I need help regarding a community that the owner and moderators have abandoned. This community has thousands of members and we all are getting annoyed by the spam, trolling and inappropriate comments. The owner (Jesse Wojdylo) and moderator hasn't commented on G+ in over a year.
Is there a way I can take over a community that the owner has abandoned?
The community is College Football -> https://plus.google.com/communities/101211743151678706460

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello, need some help here -

For my Business Google+ page, the number of followers are really low. Recently, I was clued about increasing the number of the followers by enhancing/with the help of the Google Suggested User List.

While the whole idea/approach is still sounding very abstract to me, the strong case of another business page being benefitted by the same, makes me want to pursue this. If one has any idea how to proceed with the same, please help me with the same. Thank You!

Is there anyway to turn a Brand Account into its own entirely separate page? All my stuff is on a Brand page because I didn't realize what was what when I created a google account. My next question is, what benefits are there to being active on a primary page as opposed to a brand page? Does it even really matter whether or not I turn a brand page into its own independent page?

I've been moderating a group on Yahoo for several years. We want to move here because of the dysfunction and unreliability of the Yahoo platform. I created the group and invited two people, but apparently I cannot send email invites to people unless they are already on Google+. And event hen it would only let me send two at a time. There are something like 80 members.
How do I do this? Am I missing something?

Anomalies continue with posting in G+ and functions associated with posts (comments, notifications, etc). What I'd like to know is when to give feedback -- do it for every little instance that pops up?

I am having an issue with a Google + post not appearing when I post it. I directed it to the community I want and it shows up on my page, but it does not show up on the community page. Any ideas?

What you have described is what happens when one of three things happened.

1. Google recently introduced the ability for community Moderators to enable a Held for Review queue, meaning that your posts are being held in this special queue for review. Once the Moderators have approved them, then you shouldn't have any further problems.

2. It is possible that the post actually is in the community, but your preference for the sorting of the community is "Top posts" (which is the default) rather than "Most recent.” In that case, the posts are not displayed at the top of the community but could be found further down. To change this setting for a community, open your browser and go to the community - then select the 3-dot menu and select Preferences. In the window which appears, select ‘Most recent’ in the section called ‘Sort by top posts or most recent’. You can read the announcement here - https://plus.google.com/+DanielleBuckley/posts/haNr2CwDrpC

3. the Google+ spam filters flag community posts or comments coming from a particular profile as spam. When this happens, your posts are put into a moderation queue that can only be seen by the Owner and Moderators of the community, it's then up to them to decide whether to accept or reject the posts, and for the Original Poster (OP) to approve/reject your comments. If you've enabled the option to show community posts on your profile, then anyone visiting your profile directly will still be able to see the posts - they just won’t be shown in the Community until/unless the Owner/Moderators approve them. For comments, no one will see them unless they get approved.

The following explain why posts get flagged and how to avoid it
https://plus.google.com/+JohnSkeats/posts/R9y9VtUPxSh and what to do to recover from being flagged as a spammer plus.google.com - A Guide to Recovery If Your Community Posts Are Flagged as Spam Recovering…

It is very important to note also that Google does not get involved in the moderation of Communities here on Google+. The Moderators of the Google+ Help Community do not have any special powers to fix your problem nor to approve posts you make in any other Community (unless we happen to also be a Moderator of that community).

I am very unhappy at the prospect of being forced to use the "new" G+ for several reasons. The main one: I personally thank everyone who 1+s my original art and poetry, whether or not they comment. I do this by viewing the post activity and copying the list of names into a word document on my pc. I will not be able to do this in the new version so it will be impossible for me to continue my long-standing tradition of acknowledging those who visit and plus but do not comment on my work, and I know these thank yous are appreciated by the number of 1+s they receive.

+Miles Bader thank you...I tried again in Firefox and when I selected "All Post Activity" it allowed me to copy the names. I hadn't done that as I never needed to in classic G+. And now that I know I can do this, I'm pleased, but I still prefer the original version. The new version is simply not as straightforward as classic.I don't like the page redesign either, or having to choose how posts appear. I don't give a damn what Google ranks as "most relevant". I want to see chronological posts in groups, especially as a moderator.

Oh fantastic.
So, while you're finally making events work with the new UI, I see that you completely broke it on the old UI.

Please tell me, in what math, is 2224 less than 1200.
And also, when is 4060 less than 300?

Hello. I'm having issues with specific people who have previously raided my community by spamming it with garbage images and posts over and over again, attempting to do so many that the owners/moderators become so overwhelmed that they simply cannot continue running the community because it's been overrun by raiders.

Luckily, I was able to catch the only one to get by me thus far and stopped/banned him after he'd already posted at least 40 images and comments that were meant to thoroughly degrade and make it look like the story I'm writing (which the community is based around to support) is trash and horrible. He posted these images and comments over and over, back to back within less than a minute span of one another.

Suffice to say, he has a new account on a new IP because G+ shut down his old one for doing the same thing to other communities and people that he'd done to me, on top of MANY hate comments to far too many people. While I don't know if he can see my community anymore, he has friends who are not banned. I need to know, because you have to request being a member, if you can see everything written and posted there before requesting to become a member, and if everything IS visible to the public, how do I make it so you cannot see what's on my community without being a member? And also, if there's a way to report these raiders and their actual Raid communities against specific things that they target, that will have them shut down far sooner than what it took to get this guy's profile shut down. He was able to go on doing this for over a year before they shut his profile down.

Help please? Thank you. (I'm terribly sorry for the length. I tend to be long winded as I feel the need to be thorough when explaining myself and the situation at hand.)

How the bloody hell do I change this 24H time to the correct Australian 12H AM/PM time?

I've checked account settings, and language is correctly set to Australia, which should essentially be - British Spelling, with 12H time.

Problem: Events STILL show the time in 24H.

However, on my PERSONAL ACCOUNT, it shows the correct 12H time.

I recently got my phone stolen and my carrier gave me a replacement. My question is how do I get my Google account profile that I had on my old phone interfaced with my new phone. I lost all of my photos that where saved to my Google plus account as well.

Hi +David Johnson. Expanding on what +Greg S said, when you set up an Android phone, you have to specify the Google account it is associated with. You should make sure your new phone is set up with the same Google account as your old one. If that was not done, you should consider doing a Factory Reset and setting it up all over again.

That being said, you would do much better asking general questions about mobile devices in one of the many communities focused on that subject. This community is for questions and problems relating to Google+. (It is, however, appropriate to ask questions about the Google+ mobile app or mobile website here.)
