Subject: [Q-LIST] Announcing the new Q-List

 

All,


As you may know Yahoo! Groups and the existing Q-list will be going away very soon. Current Q-list moderator Paul Fisher and I had a conference and decided that https://groups.io/  is the way of our future.  You don’t have to follow us, but this is what we are setting up.  We looked at Google Groups, but they do not transfer photos, files, or conversations, so all history would be lost.  Also, it looks like that someone would have to cut and paste email addresses to move all the members. Please look at some of the advantages that Groups.io has over Yahoo: https://groups.io/static/transfer.  Thank you everyone for your input.


Groups.io seems to have all the bases covered. (The owner came from Yahoo). We have grabbed the Q-List name and we have done a couple of test messages and all seems well. You will not have to create a new ID, like Yahoo required.


Groups.io is requiring that we purchase a Premium, one year membership for $110, if we want them to handle all the transfer legwork. I paid that today and will accept small donations to offset, but it’s not necessary.  More about that in a future email.


After our first year, as long as our stored content is less than 1 GB, the group will be free.  Right now, on Yahoo, we have about 650 MB of content, so at the end of the year we should be easily eligible to be free. I do intend to clean up some of the content.


Please don’t do anything right now, it will take a week or two for the transfer to happen. Over the next couple of days I will initiate the transfer process.  We promise to keep you informed and how to opt out if you choose.


Thanks.

    Thanks Sam, Paul,

    I would be pleased to join you in this new venture, I get rather annoyed by the T&C's for the new Yahoo owners, Verizon, so fine by me to get away from them.

    Besides if I get this thing in the air soon, it will be great to relate it to you. After all you have put up with my ramblings long enough.

    Let me know what you would like for a donation and will PayPal it over if that's OK.

I can’t access or even find the Google group. I like the idea of a more forum-style site. I’m willing to donate for whatever we decide.

Most of the groups of interest to me have already migrated to groups.io over the last year. . . Successfully.
I hear groups.io is now charging a migration fee of $110.
Donations of $10ea from 11 of us would handle that easily. Yes I will donate if asked.

Good afternoon, I own the site larus.aero there I created a forum forum.larus.aero and I can easily create a separate section there for Quickie and Dragonfly themes, I can transfer all files with groups there .
We can think together about the structure and I will create it there very quickly, in an hour. After all, the plus of the forum is that you can streamline everything, and not how it all flows.

Re: End of Yahoo groups

I prefer the e-mail type of group. I think having the files, photos and topics searchable online along with the e-mail list is good. Google groups does not have an obvious way to do these sorting and searching, but I have been looking at the GroupsIO and it does seem to have this capability. Someone has to pony up the subscription price, which is not much, but it is an obvious Achilles heel, should the subscription holder drop from the group.

 

Cheers,

Jay

FYI, there are currently over 800 people on the current Q-list. Paul Fisher and myself are the most active moderators and kind of oversee the thing. We approve new members to keep the spammers out and so on. 

 

As Yahoo is forcing a change on us, we appreciate all the input we can get. Do you want to keep this broadcast email type group or would you like to see a topic type which is already set up on Quickheads? here

It cost me a few $'s but the move was pretty easy with about half the members of this group.

Re: End of Yahoo groups

 

Google or whatever platform you guys think would be best. I’m currently on the sonex. Net site that I can access through the app “tap talk”. That seems to work for those guys although I personally am not very tech savvy

I think I'd rather use Google Groups.  After all, Google is going to own the world soon.  We might as well assimilate now.
