  2. Alllow us to MODERATE postings again... PLEASE!!!!

    You have removed the ability to MODERATE posts. That means that we again have people posting OFF-TOPIC messages and SPAM.

    The whole point of a MODERATED GROUP is to be able to MODERATE it!

  3. Promotion of Members to Moderator or Owner not working

    I am not sure if this is related to the recent changes in Yahoo Groups, but I am noticing that while I am able to promote someone who is in an existing Moderator role to Owner, I have been unable to promote anyone from the Member role to either Moderator or Owner.

    I have attempted these changes on several group members in multiple groups which I own and moderater, with identical results in each group.

    When I attempt to do so, I am receiving an error message:

    Sorry, an error occurred while loading the content.

  4. Moderation commands ???

    You destroyed all the moderation commands at the same time as what made groups interesting.
    Today if you do not restore them, my 6 moderate groups are dead .... (more than 4400 members)
    In addition you do not read your "help" section where hundreds of moderators have already pointed it out to you and ask for help!

  5. Yahoo Groups Files Feature went away, but Monthly Reminders are still being automatically generated and there is no way to edit them.

    With the recent changes to Yahoo Groups, I know that the Files feature went away. Yet the three monthly notifications that we had set up as REMINDER features are still being automatically generated on either the last day of the month or the first. Those reminders need to be edited from time to time to remove outdated information and add new info. However, as far as I can tell, there is no way to edit these notifications.

    Also, I am not sure if this should be a separate topic, but I am noticing that while I was able to promote…

  8. Give us back the ability to control whose posts must be moderrated.

    There used to be a setting whereby we could moderat eindividual members or the group as a whole. I don't see either one anymore. Please stop breaking features that have been around forever and put this back. every thime you change something you break even more. Just stop it.

  12. Scheduled Emails??

    05/01/20 I cannot see any way whatsoever to cut out an email I used to have sent regularly from my group. None of the Control Panel options allow me to See OR Edit any of my old scheduled emails so I cannot turn off the old scheduled email that no longer applies to how the group notifications are able to be turned off. I need to be able to access my scheduled emails to control what is being sent or have the ability to turn them off. Please reinstate this administrative functionality!

    When I look for how to delete the group, the instructions have not been updated following the Oct 28/Dec 14 changes.

  15. Either completely delete all groups or restore groups functionality.

    This purgatory of groups existing but not having any features including the ability of moderators to delete it is ridiculous. The help articles are out-of-date and useless. The chatbot has no clue about groups. There is no way to get live help. Please just put groups to rest instead of letting them linger on.

  16. services diminishing, nearly had enough

    We now have no access to even see the bouncing members in our groups in order to remove them, we can only chat to a so called Yahoo specialist" if it relates to abuse or spam. I have been a member of yahoo for decades and seriously, I have almost had enough of the diminishing level of product, support (or what laughingly passes for support) and quality of Yahoo services.

  18. How can we remove old inactive groups with a dead Owner?

    Help of Contact Us should give us a link to someone who can kill a group or appoint a new owner when the "Owner" is dead and we transferred our groups to Groups.IO last fall. RE: Los Angeles Computer Society groups: LACSLIST, DIRS-LACS and perhaps LACSMISC. We have deleted others, but there's no living owner for these. "Sign in with Yahoo" should not be more than providing a Yahoo account name and email address. I have stopped voting 3 times because of your **** contract.

  19. I am done with Yahoo Groups

    You have taken away the most useful features of Groups. I have ported all of my data from my Yahoo Groups over to Groups.io and will be deleting my groups. They, at least, are interested in how their users use their groups. What a dumb business decision unless you were going for everyone to abandon their group. So long Yahoo!

  20. Simply replace the "groups" back to the way they were. This new stuff is rubbish.
