Yahoo! Group change of owner

Hi everyone,

Today I received an email from Yahoo! Groups customer support stating that I have been changed from Moderator to Owner of our group.

I don’t remember what we agreed would be the next step in the process of migrating completely away from the Yahoo! Group, but whatever it is I now have the ability to do what the club membership decides.

Oh, I forgot to say “thanks” to all those who voted for me…I think. Putting an end to the online meeting place that kept us together for so many years isn’t an enviable task, but I guess it’s better that one of the oldest active members of the club does it.

  1. Pat, I support you. How do we post new threads on the forum? I’d like to be able to post to th forum instead of the front page, or is the front page the preffered method???

  2. Hi Steve and thanks! There are three ways to add information on this web site. One, which we call and normally think of as a “post”, is like something posted or tacked to a bulletin board, not meant to be persistent and usually doesn’t get much comment. A forum is a more persistent method of discussion and invites responses, like a public place where views are exchanged. The forums are created under headings (contest results, meetings, propagation, etc.) and I think members can create forums under these headings if they want to start a new discussion, or thread, as you said. Third is a column, which is like an article in an online magazine or newspaper, where someone has a story to tell and people can comment on it if they wish.

    I’m not sure there is a “preferred method” of adding information to the web site. It all depends on what kind of information you want to add and how you want it to be presented. If you just want to let members know about something without expecting many comments then a post is probably the best method. If you want to add your comments on a particular ongoing topic of discussion or create one of your own, then a forum is the way to go. If you have a story to tell (like Bob’s, W1YRC, “Charlie’s Whistle” stories), then a column would be more appropriate.

    I hope that clears things up a little.
