Do you use Yahoo Groups?

Yahoo has announced that, from 21st Oct 2019, users will no longer be able to upload content to their hosting site. we will be able to download any images that are currently on there, I use the Space Modellers group, but new stuff won't be allowed.

What will be lost:
What features will go away?

Files
Polls
Links
Photos
Folders
Calendar
Database
Attachments
Conversations
Email Updates
Message Digest
Message History

Yet another hosting site is removing the 'free content' facility, similar to Photobucket and others, and I think this will be the way forward many more sites soon.

Shame, its probably one of the longest running groups out there, with some knowledgeable and talented modellers (esp scratch builders).
One of its most notable members was Maj Don Schmenk 308th Fighter squadron, 31st Tactical Fighter Wing, who has had a number of different manufacturers reportorial his rides - including F-Toys

I used to follow it regularly, though in recent years just dipped in and out.

Sadly again, the almighty dollar rules. And just when I'd tired of swearing at broken links due to Photobucket's plug-pulling, too. :evil:
