I have noticed more and more issues with Yahoo Groups of late, a number of my other Yahoo Groups have moved to https://groups.io/.


Has any thought been given to us also moving across?

Yes please.

Hello Andy,

Tony King also suggested this a few months back, so the Kiwi vote is unanimous. I'm sure that soon, Theo D. and Tony Magon will concur.

I'll discuss this with my primary partner-in-crime Rob Ross, who is also an Ultralightdx Moderator (and who has been running this show with me for 10+ years). Tony K. assured me that the process is easy, and that we only need to take the plunge.

Yes, Bob (I should have waited for your vote).

As a member of the NZRDXL, who am I to disagree with such an overwhelming consensus? Theo D. (my Kiwi English translator) would no doubt make some type of interesting comment if Rob and I drag this out much longer.

What am I allowed to say , but yairs!  But then I'm only the Hired Help Here, not a contributor.  <g>

From observing other groups doing the switch, it seems to be painless... and although I personally don't have issues/problems with Yahoo! as others appear to experience, <groups.io> perform well.

I'm currently a member or moderator of 4 groups which have moved from Yahoo Groups to groups.io, and it is painless. Beyond that, groups.io, being more or less of a specialist organization dedicated to groups offers some features that Yahoo never did. I'd recommend the move, especially given that the future of Yahoo following its recent acquisition is at best cloudy.

It seems like it will be the best way forward.

I have had issues with files not uploading and post not coming through for hours in some cases. I was looking for a file I uploaded a few years ago which was here one day, gone a week later and then it came back.

Moving to groups.io
Yahoo have put a spanner in the works in the last week disrupting the transfer of sites and are working on a workaround so delays can be expected at this time. Worth the wait. As they mirror the yahoo site it still remains but becomes redundant. My last post announced the new site.
Cheers,
Tony k in so land


Gary DeBock
 

Thanks Tony (and all),

Fellow Ultralightdx Moderator Rob Ross and I have had our discussion, and we both agree that a transition to Groups io would be a good idea. We will proceed with the transition, assuming that Yahoo doesn't try to torpedo our ship as it departs the harbo(u)r.

FYI to All Group Members,

The new UltralightDX@groups.io  group has been created, but is not yet officially "approved" (which should take less than a day, according to Groups io). Please wait for additional information about the transition.

Sounds great. I have just signed up :)

I am happy to help out in any way possible, it might also be a good chance to sort some the files and update some as needed.

It should not be necessary for individuals to join the new group. All existing members will be transferred as part of the process. In fact, as I am already a member or moderator of other groups on groups.io I have already received a notification of the impending transfer from groups.io.

Well….that will make things a lot easier! I joined the new group this morning, so I am already there. Once the group gets final io approval, I’ll see if I am shown as a Co-Owner/Moderator.

The folks at groups.io have done a good job of making this easy. If there are difficulties, they'll be because of Yahoo Groups. That's not to say there's anything intentional - in fact I suspect the more groups who leave Yahoo, the better they'll like it. It's just that the parade of technical problems which have plagued Yahoo groups for several years now is still continuing.

Cant't wait. I hate Yahoo.

Also Yahoo's infinite forum scroll is buggy in most Android browsers. They know about it but refuse to fix it.

Excellent move, Gary and Russ. The handwriting has been on the wall for a while now...Yahoo is goin' down  :^)

I've been very happy with every Groups.io forum I'm a member of, and have NEVER had any search or scrolling issues, or forum sections (such as "Files") that refuse to load.

I'm looking forward to this improvement for Ultralight DX!
