Many group moderators transfer their Yahoo groups to groups.io because of
the changes on Yahoo Groups.

It is not panic. No, Yahoo Groups are not currently closing, but every
new membership will require an invitation, there will be no archives,
no files, and limited functionality for moderators. For all purposes,
Yahoo Groups will be practically nonexistent. Even before the changes,
many of us who moderated Yahoo groups had transferred groups to other
servers because Yahoo Groups became inaccessible for blind moderators.

Hi Joseph,

The referenced message I saw from Yahoo did not state that they were
closing down the groups. It only stated that they would stop certain
features of YahooGroups itself but that messages would still be able to be
sent, etc.

There was a knee jerk response to the subject of the message by those
who panicked but if one read the actual message one would have
understood that they were not announcing the closure of YahooGroups at
all. whether they decide to close YahooGroups altogether in the future
is not known at this time.

Hi all,



A few days ago Yahoo! Announced that they are shutting down Yahoo!
Groups in December 2019. As a result, admins of many groups hosted
there are migrating to Groups.IO. Hence, this process will impact
various forums on Groups.IO.



Although it won't affect many of us, I still think it is best to
assist blind admins as they transfer to Groups.IO. Hence, as a former
Yahoo!
Groups
owner myself, I would like to request that you help any blind group
owner as they join Groups.IO (and for some, this forum cluster).
Also, if you know of any members on Yahoo! Groups that deals with
Windows 10 and screen readers, please do invite them to join us.

Cheers,

Joseph
