Yahoo groups not working
« on: November 11, 2017, 06:48:02 PM »
 :banghead:

I can't download like 99.9 percent messages they are all redirecting me to the yahoo help and services/ assistance page.

Is anyone else having this problem.

Can you tell us which yahoo group that you are trying to download from? If it's multiple, just give a few and I'll see if I can download from them. That way we can see if it's the group or just you.

Well I only tried Character Obscura III, but it took a loooong time to get anything.

That's odd.

All of those groups work fine for me.

Have you guys tried clearing your caches?

I kept getting sent to a page telling me that the file I wanted was not available.

Which file was it? I only tried Captain Carrot from your group, Glob.

I tried everyone down to Wonder Skrull several times before I finally got Popeye and Bluto. When I succeed, I quit. It was still around 15 minutes of failure on all of them.

They were all gone last night; I haven't checked today. I kept getting sent to Yahoo Groups Thailand or told that they were having an error.

Lemme check...

Nope, still not there.

It may be a good thing that I downloaded everything of mine that was left last month.

Now, Groups Cambodia is gone (I thought it was Thailand before).

Well, booger.

I checked my Groups access after the thread got started, just to check, and my group was fine, and it looked like all the ones I was a member of were fine (didn't check).  Now I get the Manage accounts page for Yahoo.  Hopefully it's just a temporary glitch.

At least for now, the Resources Group seems to be back up. That was my main concern for now anyway.

I'm trying to upload a new file to my group for hours, with no luck. Anyone having a similar issue?

Update: Tried to upload an image and a file from 2 different computers, no luck. I'm stuck on a perpetual "uploading" screen after I hit "save" (it gets to 100% but then it gets stuck). Any suggestions, guys?

Same here. The progress bar gets to what looks like 100%, then everything stops. I can still download from the groups, but no telling how long that will last. There have been some that were "unreachable" and took too long to respond for the last few days.

I got a bad feeling about this...

I have the same "bad feeling", DG. I think we need to find an alternative to Yahoo Groups ASAP. Suggestions, anyone?

I've got a Mediadfire account; don't really know how good it would be in the long run. I have a bunch of Miguel Yanqui's stuff there (and need to go through more and post). Seems alright.

I checked the "Feedback" section of Support, and from the looks of things, no one is able to upload their files. A lot of people are complaining, but Yahoo hasn't had a real place to complain over the internet in years; you have to call them to complain. From what I read, the Yahoo Groups are not being maintained much, if at all.

Yeah, Yahoo Groups have zero support. I think you're right, DG, we'll have to use Mediafire or a similar file hosting service for a while. When you think things cannot get worse...

I need to go in an download all my stuff from Yahoo, with that that that kind of support (or lack thereof), who knows how long the Groups will remain up.

As for MediaFire, I have an Account as well, but it's already filled up to more than halfway to capacity., and that's after I've already deleted a large amount of Files.
