Yahoo! Groups Service Changes - Files/Photos features
This page describes recent changes to the Files/Photos areas of Yahoo! Groups
and outlines who is affected by the changes and what other options are
How have the Files/Photos area changed?
Web membership to a group will be required to access that group's Files and
Photos areas. This means that people can no longer access content in those
areas without being a member of the group. Groups with Files/Photos set to
"public" will be changed to "members only."
Who is affected by this change?
The only groups affected by this change are those that have the Files and
Photos areas set to "public," which is not the standard setting for the group.
This represents a small percentage of total groups.
Please note that there is no limit on the number of people who may access the
Files and Photos areas of your group; however, they must be both registered
Yahoo! users and members of the group.
Groups with the Files/Photos areas configured to something other than
"Public" (Limited, Moderators, or Off) will remain unaffected.
How do I ensure I can access the Files and Photos areas of a group?
To access the Files and Photos areas, please make sure you are registered
with Yahoo! (if you have a Yahoo! log-in ID, you are already registered.)
Secondly, make sure that you have web memberships for your group (as opposed to just
belonging to a group email list.)
· New members: Go to the group home page and join. For example, go to
"http://groups.yahoo.com/group/groupname" where "groupname" is the actual name of the
group you'd like to join.
· Existing members: To make sure you have web memberships to all of your
groups, please visit the following page: <A HREF="http://groups.yahoo.com/memwiz">http://groups.yahoo.com/memwiz</A>
What other options do members have?
You can add photos to your <A HREF="http://photos.yahoo.com/">Yahoo! Photos account</A>, which allows you to share
your images with family and friends.
