Default Yahoo groups shutting down

Looks like yahoo groups are shutting down

https://help.yahoo.com/kb/groups/SLN31010.html

"Yahoo has made the decision to no longer allow users to upload content to the Yahoo Groups site. Beginning October 21, you won't be able to upload any more content to the site, and as of December 14 all previously posted content on the site will be permanently removed. You'll have until that date to save anything you've uploaded."

I know there are several owners groups hosted on the service. I guess we need to start looking at alternatives.

Looks like the neo update broke some of the archiving tools.

Thanks, Luke.
We will migrate the groups I'm involved in managing.
Loks like it'll be Groups.io for the first one.

A couple of options require a paid subscription and it's not clear what they can/will migrate. I've requested a download of group data where I'm owner, but what that will include remains to be seen.

We had been looking at Groups.io for over a year, since a previous hiccup in Yahoo groups.

The groups.io migration was pretty quick and very easy.

Because of the different layout of the two sites, links in your Yahoo group end up in Databases in the new group. Easy to clean up by using folders, but best to have all links in a folder under the Yahoo links tab first.

You may have to rebuild your calendar.

Messages seem to post instantly, compared to the sluggish Yahoo server.

What about the import of files and photos?

Files and photos, and all old posts imported.
For many aircraft-specific groups this is a must. Too much information to lose.

Thanks Jim, good to know. I read that e-mail attachments might not have been included. Not a big part of the mix in most of the groups I'm in, but one seemed to have more of those than the others.

Received this method from Bret Hess. Seems to be working and should help with orphaned groups (where owner may have gone west).

I used http://www.personalgroupware.com/downloads..htm to download all the content for our PIK20 group, then put it in a google site + forum + drive. See the results at https://sites.google.com/view/pik20/forum .
