Yahoo Groups shutting down: now in read-only mode

To no one’s surprise: https://mjtsai.com/blog/2019/10/16/yahoo-groups-shutting-down/

Hopefully, most of the community’s work is already backed somewhere else…

I've suspected it would happen since Yahoo was bought by Verizon. Stuff has gone "missing" from some groups ever since. Last weekend, I tried checking all the groups, and it seemed like after downloading a few files, somehow the server got "lost". Awhile back, I went through all the groups and downloaded as much as I could; I hesitate to say I got everything, but I got most of it. Y'know, cuz I'm a content hoarder.

Hi all.

Please move this to its proper place if there's already a thread for saving the files.

For anyone who wants them, feel free to grab all the skins and meshes I have in my yahoo groups and put them safely away. I also give permission to repost them somewhere else for other members or to change/ edit them as well.

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/FF_Swap_Shop/files/

I think these are the only two groups I had.

Happy Holidays to all!

Meanwhile, while FR was suffering from Alzheimer's:

In a move that should surprise no-one, Yahoo Groups shut down completely back on Dec 15th.  So even the people that were still using it for email lists are now out of luck.  Way to stay classy & relevant, Yahoo.   :thumbdown:
