Offer proper support to Yahoo Groups
Lots of people are having problems with Yahoo Groups and no proper support is offered. Please rectify this.

Hi, is Yahoo Groups currently experiencing an outage? I'm an administrator of a group and I cannot receive or send any messages....please look into this!!
Don Pottenger commented
Yahoo groups just keeps getting worse and worse. the calendar is totally unusable at this point. Reminders have not gone our for about a year now and I just updated the main group information page and it is not formatted to fill the space on the front page instead it is just a long skinny column and looks ugly. In addition our cover photo is just a grey block updating the cover photo does not work at all.
Maybe it's time that Yahoo just shut down the service as there is NO support whatsoever. So getting something fixed never happens.
Yahoo, you should be ashamed to have allowed this product to deteriorate to such a piece of junk.
I've suggested in the past you offer a tiered support structure. I'd pay to be able to talk to a support person about these problems but that is not even a choice.
Extremely disappointed in the "service".

We receive the error below when attempting to open/download attachments to messages in the group:
HTTP Status 500 - null
type Status report
description The server encountered an internal error that prevented it from fulfilling this request.
I mean come on ! Offer hat or e-mail support or don't offer the service.

It's unfathomable that in 2018, people cannot unsubscribe with an 'Unsubscribe' button as opposed to being held subject to the whims of the moderator or faulty emails/servers or what have you. Yahoo is a Paleolithic cretinous ancient dinosaur of a service and I truly hope you bankrupt soon.

We need support to do this simplest thing like unsubscribe. I have been trying to unsubscribe from a group (that I am no longer affiliated with) for two years. The unsubscribe feature on the mail list email takes me to a dead web page (error 404 Page Not Found) and when I manually try to unsubscribe (after many hours of searching) the result is that Yahoo says that I'm not subscribed but I am still receiving those unwanted email messages every day. The group moderators are clueless and they are now sending out even more email, which just fills my mailbox with a lot of clutter that I don't have time to clean out every day.
We really need support from Yahoo for these simplest of tasks.
The Subscribe feature is not working and notifications from the group calendar are not going out. Help! Need someone responsive to reply.

YES!!! Why isn't there a format to contact technical support for site issues? I can't invite members to join into our group any longer and the calendar function no longer works. Please fix these issues - they have been persistent for quite some time and really causing us a lot of trouble! There are a lot of people who still don't feel comfortable using facebook for groups and our email groups are still valuable for reaching this population.

My messages to groups that I moderate once-in-a-while go through, and most often these days (since a month ago or so) my messages do not post to the list. What's going on?
Ken Parker commented
Does Yahoo have any plans to support Groups? Ever?
Michael Morrissey commented
Never happen. Yahoo couldn't care less. All they want us for is to count the number of registered users so they can use that figure to sell ads. They don't care of their services work, or whether we can use them or not.
Derek Cox commented
Currently unable to update any group meetings, and the notifications from group comments / emails etc is horrendously slow, taking days to be distributed. Please advise what is going on and why the current system has suddenly become unfit for purpose. If things are not fixed, we'll be moving to a different platform

Sorry, we are experiencing technical difficulties. Please wait for a few moments and try again. Error code:500
I am the owner and moderator of the Mearns Bird Club Yahoo group:
When I try to add an event to the calendar I get an error message, above. I had previously complained about this on 7/8/18 to no avail.
I am unable to post any events, which we have weekly.
Previously I was able to enter information into the Events Calendar, though none of the events were being sent out as a reminder email to members. I had previously complained of this in January 2018 again with no response.

I can access most of the information - not the events calendar a month or more ahead - via my PC but NOT via my iPad. It used to will you please fix it asap.
Does anyone know how to transfer all the data in our Yahoo group to Google Groups? We're seriously considering saying goodbye to Yahoo due to their apparent lack of interest.
Edwn Sheldon commented
This is why Yahoo is losing. All their attention is focused on imitating what everybody else is doing. They ignore the things (like groups) that make them different and useful to their users.
Emmanuel Anciaux commented
Not able to login to my Yahoo genealogy groups, what the **** is going on since weeks? Why can't we get an answer?!
Lynn Mayes commented
What is the status of the upgrade? Why is there no information? Several of my albums and hundreds of photos posted between mid April to mid June disappeared in June and still have not come back since the upgrade. It's as though the group reset to a date in mid April but is still glitchy. What is going on?
Mark Robbins commented
I suggest everyone should get out now. Find an alternative. Clearly Yahoo groups will be left to a slow lingering death, anyone who thinks otherwise is a fool.
Sarah Martin commented
I can't seem to post via email or on your website to my group. What is going on? Do I need to switch us to Google Groups?
