W9SMR Completes WTW!

Rick - N7WE
 

Please join me in congratulating Stan – W9SMR - who yesterday completed his Work The World Award Series.  WTW is one of the “Crown Jewels” of the 070 Endorsements and requires completing 9 separate, ordered awards, a total of 2246 QSOs and years to achieve.  Stan completed the first level of this endorsement on Sept. 13, 2014.  He becomes only the 33nd person to complete the entire series in the 5+ years it has existed!

 

Congratulations Stan – well done!

Congrats Matt!!  Great dedication, for sure.

I am close behind you.

Rick, N7WE noted after I made the 365+1 award last month that I needed only 8 "N" and 6 "I" calls for WTW.

Based on his challenge, I started to pay attention.

As of last nite I had my 8 "N" calls and needed just ONE more "I" call.

Any "I" call volunteers who have not worked W9SMR yet?

This is such a wonderful hobby!!

John:

We all appreciate your efforts in getting out the stickers - it;s a big job and very important to the health of PODXS.

Hope you are progressing well after knee replacement. Have a couple friends who had knees replaced and they did fine. Getting up and down stairs I guess can be a problem. Hope you are better soon and running marathons !

It depends on what you mean by "email preferences." If you mean "use a new email address", then follow the steps in group 1 below, and then group 2. If it's "change the settings for a particular group using an email address that Yahoo already knows", then jump straight to group 2.


Group 1

Log in to your YahooGroups account. Go to the YahooGroups page. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo


If you haven't logged in to Yahoo recently, it will ask you for your Yahoo ID and password.

Once you are logged in, use the Settings icon in the upper right (looks like a gear) to access "Account Info"

Then select "Account Security" from the menu. You'll probably have to re-enter your password.

Use the Email Accounts menu pick to add/delete addresses. You'll have to verify a new address (I think by entering a code sent to that address) when you add it.

(Note: I think this is how it works. I actually don't have an "add new email address" option, I think because I already have four verified addresses.)


Group 2

Go to the 070 YahooGroups home page. https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/070/info

You may have to enter your Yahoo login info to get there.

Click on the "Membership" link in the upper right, and select "Edit Membership"

Edit each of the sections by clicking on the pencil icon by each. 

Change the email address for message delivery within the Identity section. (You can only select email addresses that are already in your Yahoo account.)

Change your delivery choice (individual messages, daily digest, specials only, or no messages) within the Subscription section.

Yahoo is got all kinds of problems and it's only going to get worse as Verizon takes over.  They have no clue what they are going to do with Yahoo Groups as it is not a real money maker.

Many Yahoo group owners have moved their group over to groups.io.  I did that for the groups I manage and it was a breeze to get everything and everyone moved over and message turn around time is virtually seconds.

OK - it's official... YAHOO GROUPS SUCKS! It continues to fail us (and MANY others!) time and time again.

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 different entity.
- The groups will transition over to groups.io lock, stock, and barrel, with all information and settings intact. 
- 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, anywhere.

73, y'all!

Rick - I send out emails but I don’t get anything back to show it went out as other lists I will actually get a copy of my outgoing email sent back to me (email).  Only way I would know if it went out is to either CC myself or go to the browser and log in to see if my email post went out!!!
