OK - it's official... YAHOO GROUPS SUCKS! It
continues to fail us (and MANY others!) time and time
I want to move both of our groups to GROUPS.IO
I'm looking for anybody with firsthand knowledge of why
that would be a bad idea, if there is anybody out there
with such knowledge. In all the research I've done, it
seems like a positive thing, and basically like a
no-brainer to move there. Here's why:
- No special log-in required, i.e. a Yahoo Group
ID/account. It's just your email address, not a whole
- The groups will transition over to groups.io
stock, and barrel, with all information and settings
- Message posting time is in the seconds, not many
minutes/hours/days/weeks category that Yahoo seems to
operate in here of late.
- We should be able to integrate our Facebook page
(did y'all know we have one?), Google Drive, and email.
- NO ADS! NO TRACKING!
- Excellent message threading/searching
- We'd still have a calendar, polls, a database, a
photo section, a file section, and we can add a WIKI.
That'd be a great home for a FAQ type of arrangement,
and for more information on our contests and such.
In my mind, unless there's an overwhelming level of
negative responses to this email with concrete "bad
stuff" about groups.io
we'll be moving there soon, just everyone knows the
"mindset of the executive director" on this issue.
Please, I'm looking for feedback from anybody,
