Eddystone User Group

EUG Forum moving from Yahoo groups to Group.io

October 16, 2019 By: chris Category: News

We are in the process of moving the Eddystone User Group Forum from Yahoo Groups to Groups.io

The reasons are many, but since finding we could no longer access our photos on Yahoo and finding a statement that Yahoo will no longer be accepting content after October 21st and will be deleting all content on December 14, like many others before us we decided to make the move. Groups.io offers better features and is easier to use – plus no advertisements ever (they are committed to a “Freemium” business model).

All of our content will be copied to the new service (messages, photos, etc.) and of course the list of subscribers (members). However Yahoo Groups has been very unreliable lately. Groups.io  will do their best, but there is a good chance that they may not be able to transfer all of our messages, photos or files. They will tell me which ones they were not able to transfer. The transfer may take some days as they are very busy with transfers at the moment. 

The new site is here if you want to take a look, but none of our content has been copied there yet except for the home page I created:
