Need Your Help - Yahoo Group Problems

PostPost by: jcocking » Tue Oct 01, 2013 1:50 pm

Hello Everyone,

Many of you probably do not realize that LotusElan.net actually started as a mailing list in May of 1999. We started with a company called Onelist. Onelist was bought by Yahoo and became Yahoo Groups.

Over time the forums have become the primary focus of our users community. We have kept the mailing list in place as a notification service of new topics. Everyday at Noon CST, an email goes out with a listing of the new topics in the last 24 hours.

This has been working for years. Recently Yahoo made changes which broke part of the notification service. We are trying to work with Yahoo, but Yahoo went through a shutdown years ago and never restarted.

Where you can help

Yahoo has a feedback system where users can vote on the items Yahoo needs to focus on. We have listed the issue and now we need votes to get it to the top of the pile.

Please go to the page listed below. You will need to sign in at the upper right corner with an email address. Any email address will work. Even if it is a bogus email address. It just needs to be properly formatted. After signing in, you can click on the Vote button under the total number of votes. Please give it 3 votes.

http://yahoo.uservoice.com/forums/20945 ... are-broken

If we can get 20 to 30 members to give the issue 3 votes, then we can get the issue to the top of the bugs section to get attention within Yahoo. (Yes, you can vote multiple times. Each time requires a different email address. You have to sign out and sign in as a new user.)

I voted too, so up to 106 votes now.
I use a work-around that deletes the inserted space in the URL, by emailing the list of new topics to myself (Forward it) the links become repaired. (Using Chrome browser).
Hope this helps - Ian

make that 109 votes. I'm not having the problem, but it looks like most are. If Yahoo can't fix, I suggest Google Circles.

I officially received word today from Yahoo that they are working on the problem.

Let see.....

4 weeks to indicate they are aware of the problem and are working on it. Hopefully it will be fixed by the January 1st. (and no, I am not going to list a year.)

thank you everyone for voting so we could get this issue escalated within the Yahoo world.
