Mark, I own sever Yahoo Groups and have full moderator control to at least 5 others.  We just have the main account.  With one of them having more than 17,000 members, that more than enough work.  LOL  I think this is the case with most of the sewing/embroidery groups out there.

I'm curious what makes that a high bar?

I was thinking that for most people using or creating a least-privileged mod account would be a lower bar than figuring out how to export the email address list from one's Yahoo Group. Especially for groups of over 1000 members.

The one potential "high bar" I can see is if one doesn't already have a "test" account or other fallow account to use, and also doesn't have a mobile phone number to give to Yahoo's account creation process.

Well, maybe I'm wrong. Do you think most moderators have a throwaway test account already signed up to their group? And that they wouldn't mind giving access to that account to someone else?


So, in this scenario, the steps would be:

- Make sure you have a test account signed up as moderator to your group

- Create a group on Groups.io

- Give me the account's log in information

- I grab the user list and direct add into your new group
