Recent post on Groups.io:

Yahoo Groups is going away.


If you need any files, photo's or other data from any group you are member of, get it now, by the end of December it will all be gone.

Well it appears the sky is falling on Yahoo Groups.

Understand what's changing in Yahoo Groups

Yahoo has made the decision to no longer allow users to upload content to the Yahoo Groups site. Beginning October 21, you won't be able to upload any more content to the site, and as of December 14 all previously posted content on the site will be permanently removed. You'll have until that date to save anything you've uploaded.

Any plans to relocate the EMRFD group?

Here is information directly from Yahoo!

Time to move the group to groups.io to preserve the vast amount of information accumulated over the years.

I looked pretty carefully at the Yahoo site today. There’s nothing there. This sounds like people shouting in the wind. Chicken Little is a good description. Maybe it is even little chicken. 😃

Is there someone in this group that has the ability to move the "emrfd@yahoogroups.com" to the groups.io site?  I have seen several other yahoo group make the move and keep all the content.
