locked Re: Easy yahoo group transfer instructions


 

JohnF,

I'd like to echo what others have said that anyone wanting to move a
group needs to have that trusted owner make a group announcement. If
I just received that groups.io transfer announcement out of the blue,
I would assume it was a spam/scam.
I think that need is served in (2) of Step 2, when the Yahoo Group owner (moderator) must send an email to Groups.io saying "I'm ready to start". Part of being ready would be to have alerted the membership.

So perhaps in the email sent to OLDGROUP-owner@yahoogroups.com, either before or after item 1, there should be a reminder to be kind to the members by giving them a heads up.
