OT: Yahoo Groups making changes
- hi everyone,
I received this emaii today about how Yahoo is going to be changing the groups. I can't say that I'm very excited about this. It looks to me like it's going to take a while for it all to be done, and a while to get used to it. We don't have any choice in this matter, so I just wanted everyone to be prepared that the changes will be coming soon.
Yet again, we're going to have to be patient while Yahoo does their thing.
Chances are by now you have read our blog post on August 13th:

And this is just the beginning of additional enhancements to come. Initially features such as Polls, Files and Links will remain the same, but we'll be improving them too, and adding new things along the way. Think of Yahoo! Groups as your improved home, and discover the beauty of each room as we renovate and add in modern accents. Stay tuned to the blog for news on all the upcoming changes. And please share your feedback on our Suggestion Board and the blog. As Group owners and moderators, your support is especially important to this transition.
We hope you are as excited as we are about these upgrades that will allow Yahoo! Groups to continue to be the best place for your communities to live and thrive online.
