What About Our Old Data from Yahoo?

Ryan Ellett
 

There is a lot of justified concern about losing the resources we have at our Yahoo Groups - especially our membership database with contact information - as Yahoo begins deleting that in a couple months. Not to worry, Paul Kornman has been able to download all that information so we will be able to save it and host it ourselves on a site that we control. While old files were copied over to this new groups.io before I knew about Paul's work, just because other uploaded content from Yahoo is not re-uploaded on groups.io does not mean the OTRR does not have access to it anymore.

I understand that there is a way of transferring membership details from Yahoo to IO. CJB

IO has a transition program but it costs $120 (fee was instituted earlier this year) so Paul Kornman wrote his own program to download most of the information. When I first googled it I didn't see the fee.

BTW - please can the mods remove the moderation of post. Cheers - CJB

The moderation is automatic so I need to remember to uncheck it when people join. I have to go back and update each person's membership, it will take some time, sorry.

I think I made the correct adjustments, everyone should be able to post.
