Content from Yahoo Group is being migrated!

Post by safari-admin »

Greetings!

Over the next few days, expect some possible down time as the contents of the old Yahoo Groups forum are migrated into this one. We have engaged a contractor to perform the migration work, which consists of importing the messages into phpBB on this site. A backup of this forum is being prepared in case something goes sideways, and various tests will be run afterwards to ensure no existing content is lost.

Please note that only messages are scheduled for import at this time, images and attachments will be addressed afterwards.

Thanks for your patience!

Update 1: The YG safarifriends topics have been migrated into this forum! Please note that:

1. All topics are in the Legacy Yahoo Groups forum; once all moderators are in place, they may choose to migrate topics to the appropriate forums
2. Still no attachments, that is the planned next step
3. No new content should be posted into the legacy forum! If you need to reference a topic from the YG forum, please find that topic first, then copy its contents along with your information/question into a new forum post in the appropriate topic forum

Thanks for your patience, we're getting closer. :D
