When I delete a group it moves it’s messages to be private messages with only the one that sent it, effectively making them “lost”. (In this case I wanted to see what happened), maybe discourse should warn about this, or not allow without moving them out first?
Not sure what a good way to handle this is @sam?
Sure, it would be a good idea to warn!
Sorry for the real real real slow reply here.
@vinothkannans can you review how this is working now? If it is still an edge case just pop up a bootbox on group deletion warning users that bad stuff will happen.
@carlokok if you are hunting for the messages one thing you can do is use a data explorer query.
OK I just tested this, we indeed still orphan the messages, we should change the text here:
Deleting this group will cause 78 messages to be orphaned, group members will no longer have access to them.
Are you sure?
