NEWS about the disappearing Yahoogroups

 

October 22, 2019

 

In the next days/weeks we are transferring our three Yahoogroups to our new set of Groups at Groups.io
https://artistitch.groups.io/g/main

This Main group will consist of 3 subgroups, representing our products:


 

  • ArtandStitch
  • QEPatternFinder
  • Pre-DesignStudio
     

In the coming days I will write more about the progress of the transfer.

It could be that you receive a mail from groups.io asking you permission to be added as a member of the Artistitch.io Group. Read it carefully and then click on accept or OK.

 

Stay tuned!

News update of October 25, 2019

 

Please do not apply for membership of the new io group yet! The transfer of the current three Yahoogroups into our new three subgroups is in the works.

 

Therefore please wait until about November 8: if by then you have not automatically become a member of one of the subgroups, then reapply for the desired subgroup. I will place the links to the subgroups in a new News update on this page.


The new Main io group will be for announcement only (members cannot post in this group). 

Posting / discussions will take place in the subgroups, representing our products:

 

  • ArtandStitch
  • QEPatternFinder
  • Pre-DesignStudio
     

 

Stay tuned!

We really expected things to go quicker than they do! The transfer is in progress. On the io Groups the information is still the same as on October 23: 

"We are in process of transferring your group. Depending on Yahoo and demand, this may take several days. You will be notified by email when the transfer is completed." 


Well, thousands and thousands of Yahoogroups are affected by Yahoo's decision to stop with their "conversations" function, so the demand for io Groups is probably overgrowing their capacity.

Let's just give them more time. We won't give up yet (we have paid for it) and let them do their thing.

 

Please do not apply for membership of the new io group yet!


 

Stay tuned!
