I don't know if anyone has noticed this -- it seems that Yahoo Groups have gone away, and there is a limited window where group content can be retrieved. Has anyone with admin privileges requested the full content of the Yahoo Flutemakers group? It will be a tragic loss of a priceless body of knowledge, if this information just goes away.

[quote]Hi Yahoo Member,

In recent weeks, we communicated the latest changes to Yahoo Groups and explained how to request a download of any content you've previously posted to the platform. Some Groups users asked us for more time, and in response to these requests, we have decided to extend the deadline. Groups users now have until Friday, January 31, 2020 at 11:59pm PST to submit a request for their data.

We have now taken down all user content from the Yahoo Groups website. However, we will continue to accept users' requests for their data until January 31, 2020, and will ensure these have been fulfilled prior to deleting the data.

For additional support, users can email and our team will troubleshoot any issues.

Copied from the Flute Forum due to the possibility of more general interest.
