Re: How to set my profile?

If you log on to groups.io, in the upper right corner you should find access to your profile that you should be able to edit.  This is a learning process for all of us!

I just signed up with the new group. Easily done and the new site is a bit different while the email message system function the same as this one. It should be an easy transition for us users. Let’s put this list on Hospice support as Doctor Yahoo has spoken.

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.

Re: End of Yahoo groups

letun@...
 

I edited my profile many times, but for some reason the groups never want to display my name. My name is Maxim, I am a professional pilot, the commander of a Boeing 737 and together with my friends we are the owners of the only Viking Dragonfly in Russia, but of course, historically, I am a fan of too and therefore subscribed to the group and offered help.

Then what's the problem?  You will just receive messages from a different email address. If you only read the messages, you will never know that anything has changed.

Re: Announcing the new Q-List

ΕΔΔΥ . <overlordmustafa@...>
 

I used to keep in my garage a server, it was awesome.
It had FTP accounts I could create for people or groups.
I had my website on it.
It was free too.  Open source.
It was "ClarkConnect"
ClarkConnect has changed names now, but the same system is available for free.  With support it costs a small fee.

Now, it's called ClearOS.
I no longer have this running as I'm not an IT guy (A friend installed it for me).  Once up and running it was very easy to maintain.

I can't host a website here any longer, but...it's something perhaps to consider.
The actual computer necessary to run the server was a PII.  A slow old computer worked perfectly fast!

After our first year, as long as our stored

Why then move the list? The change will surely disrupt membership severely.

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.

Announcing the new Q-List

Sam Hoskins
 

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.
