I attach a screenshot of an email I (as Marilyn-super) just got 4 hours ago.

I assume something triggered this, and I hope it's NBD.

  • Status changed from New to Reporter Feedback

Anyone who creates a group on the Commons automatically receives an invitation to the Group for Group Admins. In BP, group invitations have to come from a specific user, so this plugin uses the creator of the Group for Group Admins, who is Brian.

I kinda like having Brian's name on there for nostalgic reasons, but if we think it might be confusing for others, this might be a good use for the Commons Admin user. See

While I like the idea of continuing this practice as a tribute to Brian, it is probably best that we send the invite from the CAC admin user :)

  • Target version set to Not tracked

Sounds good. I've changed the creator_id of the group so that it matches the commonsadmin user. Future invites should come from that user.
