Re: Yahoo Closing Groups

That is true, but you need an owner or at least a moderator with sufficient privileges to do it and this group has neither. The owner may have abandoned the group as he has not responded to numerous inquiries about this.

Transferring is easy and painless.  The only
change is now
groups.io is requesting the group owner become a
premium
subscriber for a period of one year to help offset the
costs of
all of the work behind the scenes reacting to yahoo
move to keep
the transfer functional.

It’s not  that
difficult.
Groups.io has a
program that makes it quite
easy, well, easier than one would think.
The members are
transferred, the files and
photos can be done through groups.io without
coping and
pasting.
I am members of
several groups that did
this. The only time there was problems was if
there were no
current owner of the Yahoo group. This must be
done by the
owner per Yahoo regulations. If not, then a new
groups.io
group must be formed and all files, photos and
membership
names only must be copied and pasted. And the
members must
physically join the new group, which is really
easy to do.
I do wish this
will be done here as I am
very concerned about what will happen to Yahoo
Groups.
