Event Description

The Yahoo Group called . . .

AgilePhillyCoordianators@YahooGroups.com

has been the storage area for Policies of our group, as well as the Informational Email Address we put on our Business Cards.

Yahoo is shutting down Yahoo Groups.

So you may see a small change in how we do things. 

It may just be a change to a Google group or something similar.

This will mostly affect the Coordinators, Helpers and Backup people who run the AgilePhilly User Group.

NEW UPLOADS STOP on OCT 28

FULL SHUTDOWN on DEC 14

In other words, Yahoo Groups will still function as an email list people can continue to use to message each other, but only over email. To save your posted content, the company is advising users to go into their groups' main page, and basically mouse over the content they want to download and save.
