PSA Yahoo Groups is shutting down

Post by xzrilm »

In case you didn't know, Yahoo will be wiping all data in the groups by 14 Dec.

If there's any old stories in any old groups you want to save, now is the time to do so. Maybe even share them here so they aren't permanently lost :(

I would have a group for them to wipe but they already did it years ago when somebody reported me. I had a Group that I put the Wonder Woman stories I had collected in the files area. :( :(

That sucks. Do you still have copies of those stories or others? You could just zip them up and post a link here as a kind of impromptu respository.

Trouble is I really don't have any place online to put the stories.

You could zip them up and upload to a file sharing site like https://mega.nz/ or https://www.mediafire.com/ ?

That's probably easier than submitting each story individually to the forum haha.

Interesting topic. For my part, I'm trying to figure out how to download all the pics and videos from yahoo groups before they shut down. I know it can be done file at a time, but that seems like a lot of work. Is there a faster way to do it?
