Groups IO

Many yahoo groups have moved over to the Groups IO format. We have setup a groups.io account.

The advantage of Groups IO is listed as:

  • Integration with other services, including: Github, Google Hangouts, Dropbox, Instagram, Facebook Pages, and the ability to import Feeds into your groups.
  • Businesses and organizations can have their own private groups on their own subdomain.
  • Better archive organization, using hashtags.
  • Many more email delivery options.
  • The ability to mute threads or hashtags.
  • Fully searchable archives, including searching within attachments.

The founder of Groups IO was the originator of the Yahoo groups platform Mark Fletcher.

To join the VKCC Groups IO email reflector simply: emailĀ vkcc+subscribe@groups.io

There are currently around 30 VK and ZL contestors on the email reflector.

Have a great day
