Yahoo has announced that YHG will no longer be supported after Dec. 1, 2019. It will be effectively dead at that time.

Are you 100% sure? The way I understand it is
that the basic message list remains functional,
but the storage capacity on the YG servers
('content') is deleted. Since I hardly ever use
that, nothing would change for me as a message
list user. Please be 100% sure before making these changes.

    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

Jay Scheevel
 

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.
