Re: End of the Road for Yahoo Groups
toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
As you and several others have pointed out --some more kindly than others -- Groups.io remains unaffected. While I was aware (vaguely now remember ;) that you had shifted RePower Regear away from Yahoo Groups, somehow my tiny ferret brain was under the impression that .io was still a Yahoo entity and would thus no longer be available after Dec 15. I suppose my confusion may have arisen from the fact that while I have posted and replied sometimes after logging in to the group and threads, most of my reading and replying is via my Yahoo email account. Do I understand incorrectly that after Dec 15, group posts will no longer appear as eMails? If so, that's OK for me.
Anyway, glad to know these groups I find so valuable go on unaffected.
And many thanks for taking the trouble and time to set me straight!
All the best,

My lists all transferred to goups.io from Yahoo Groups two years ago. At that time I suspended message posting on the YG lists and all members continued to posting on the new lists on groups.io.
I was planning on closing down and deleting the dormant lists on YG the end of the year. This was to discourage attempts to resurrect the old list name instead of migrating to groups.io
Now I won't have to do that extra work as YG will be gone before the end of the year.
In the meantime groups.io is still going strong, expanding to a second mail server for enhanced service and to reduce the errant spam messaging. My lists are free lists so still ne need yet for paid
subscriptions and all the archives from the old YG list were transferred two years ago. You responded on the new list, you are still good to go. No change.
You will see consternation among those who clung to the corpse of the YG lists all this time. They missed the chance to transfer to groups.io, actually several chances. It seems to be a sign of the time that
no matter what the subject a large number refuse to believe, even after the fact. A year after YG purged the archives, some YG faithful still think that they can be copied to a new list.
We're on groups.io, two years past the wailing at the YG demise.
