We have sent at least three Invites to "transfer@groups.io" to join our group, over the last 10 days, with no results.  There has been no new member in the group with that address, so we can't promote it to Moderator.  We are stuck.
 
Please send me the name of the Groups.io group and the name of the Yahoo group off-list and I'll look into it.

Thanks,

I would suggest posting this question in the Group Manager's Forum. This area is specifically to make suggestions and submit new ideas.

We thought you were just delaying us because ours is a larger group.  But now I suspect there is something gone wrong between Yahoo and Groups.io, because you're saying it should have happened by now.
 
What could be wrong?
 
How many Invites do you recommend we send Invites?  Do we need to resort to something like hourly, to catch that "sweet spot" when both Yahoo and Groups.io are participating with one another?  Is there any harm in sending that many invites -- will Groups.io treat it as spam if we do?

Thanks,
Andy

Look for groups.io in your membership list at Yahoo.

It was named groups.io in my Yahoo groups, not transfer.

Mark,

Thank you for the update. I just want to let you know our group is not
very active and there is nothing time sensitive in our group. My only
concern was saving the files, links and archives. Being on step 3 of 4
now, I know that is done. So I don't mind getting further down the
queue to make way for groups whose timely exchange of information is
critical. Not sure if there are others like me, but maybe if so we
could inform you on the transfer page so you can use that metric to
decide priority.

Hi All,

Here's the status of the various queues involved in the Yahoo Group transfer process:

- We've accepted all invites up through last night.
- We are exporting Yahoo Groups that were given the go ahead as of Oct 23 at 8am pacific time.
- We are importing Yahoo Groups that had completed export as of Oct 19 at 6pm pacific time.

Another way, in terms of the steps listed on the transfer page:

Your group is being exported from Yahoo right now. [Step 2 of 4]
Groups are currently waiting about 3 days in this queue.

Your group is awaiting import into Groups.io. There are about N groups ahead of it in the queue. [Step 3 of 4]
Once groups reach this step, they are currently waiting about 7 days in this queue.

Right now, I'm doing 20 group exports concurrently. I'm doing 4 group imports concurrently.

Please let me know if you have any questions or suggestions for how I can make this more understandable. I'll try to post this on a regular basis.

Thanks,
Mark

I hope you've had a dry run with your generator.
I know where you live, Just a few miles down into the gully, across the S.A.Fault line, up the hill past the quarry and down to the covered bridge intersection from my son, at the old Bible college campus.
Said son got hit last time and started his generator.  His wife is in an MBA as SCU and her UPS "didn't like" the genertor's power profile so she had to come to our house where nothing ever seems to dislike our Battery Backup Solar system from Outback Power Systems.
Never ever get a flicker on a switchover nor a computer glitch.
Between that and a Hotspot I think I'm ok for about 15 hours or so.w/o sunlight.

The generator does an automatic dry run every Monday at noon.  It also ran like a trooper during the previous PG&E shutoff, no problems with computers or UPSes.  It didn't help with the secondary outage that caused Xfinity to go offline, but then there was nothing I could do about that.



We can't have solar, too many trees.

P.S. If you look this map, the outage threat runs from Eureka in the north to Salinas in the south, something like four hundred miles and much larger than just the Bay Area.

I hope you can maintain sanity while you continue with the outstanding service and customer response.

I’ve seen nothing like it before.

It is so much different than speaking into the Yahoo Groups vacuum.

I did invite the "transfer@" address to join as a member of the YAHOO group, but as of 2 days later that user does not seem to be there.

Like I said, check your transfer status and if it hasn't changed you need to send another invite.

 
Also wanted to know, is it possible to merge another group, (into the same group.io)  once one was already merged? Or is it possible to merge
one into a sub group? The sub group possibility seems interesting to me because the 2nd yahoo group I want to merge is more or less an "archive"
type now, because theres no activity to it much anymore for years, but the email posts can be a useful resource to have access to.

Yes, you can import Yahoo Groups into existing Groups.io groups or subgroups.

After a successful transfer of our Yahoo Group (THANKS MARK!!!), when one attempts a search within the cloned messages, no results get pulled.  Instead it only says "The search produced no results."   Is there a feature needed that integrates transferred messages into the search engine?

The search indexer falls behind during the day as I import groups. I purposely try to not schedule group imports overnight to let it catch up. I've also added additional machines to the search cluster to deal with the influx of data. Anyways, your messages should show up within a day or two.

With all of the new groups being transferred, it may well be that it is going to take some time for the indexing to catch up. Searching has worked with all of the groups that I have had transferred, so hopefully it just a matter of being patient.

It is now about 12 hours since completion of the transfer, and as Gerald surmised, indexing is merely lagging.  The main page Message History is beginning to fill in and the search function is now pulling results.   Thanks for the heads up Gerald!!
