Jazz West Coast blog on Yahoo

6 posts in this topic

What happened to the Yahoo Group? After Organissimo, Jazz West Coast was my favorite. Can this blog be resurrected somehow, perhaps as an Organissimo topic?

Do you mean the Yahoo Group? 

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/groups/JazzWestCoast/info

Yahoo just shut down the web hosting aspect of Yahoo Groups several days ago - they are no longer hosting any Groups' content on the web, but the Groups' email functionality is still active. So if you were a member of a Group and had elected to receive all messages via email, you likely haven't noticed much difference. If, OTOH, you accessed messages via a Group's web portal, then you're probably wondering where everyone went, as all of the Group messages are no longer accessible via the web portal. Yahoo sent out several notices in advance of this happening, and provided functionality to obtain a download of the message archives for each Group (without any images that had been attached or otherwise included in messages) prior to the shutdown deadline. 

A lot of Groups were not happy with the changes and opted to move to other, similar portals like Groups.io, who provided what seemed to be a relatively painless method to migrate a Yahoo Group's archived content over to their site for a one-time $100 fee.

Yeah, apparently at one point I belonged to a Yahoo group? Because I was getting those "alert" email for about a month now. No idea why, but yeah, they're gone.

The owner-moderator of the Jazz West Coast Group (James Harrod) responded to my email and sent me instructions how to access the group again. Many thanx to him.

You weren't thinking of his Jazz West Coast Research blog were you, because that's on Blogspot.
