OBC Yahoo group to close (1 Viewer)

The OBC forum will cease operating with the demise of Yahoo groups. A group e-mail from Krys Kazmierczak reads.

'Dear Members of the OrientalBirding (OB) email group.

As some of you may know, Yahoo Groups will be closing down on 15th
December 2020. The reason cited is that "Yahoo Groups has seen a steady
decline in usage over the last several years". This is also true of the
OB group in particular with very few messages now being posted. The
world has moved on and most people are now using other social media.

It is therefore with some sadness and regret that I have decided to
allow the OB group to close on 15th December along with the Yahoo
service. Members may post messages until then, but after that the
forwarding service will no longer operate. I will not move the group to
an alternative provider.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank all our members for their
support and contributions over the past 21 years that the group has been
in existence. I apologise for not having had the time and energy to make
the group more useful in recent times.

With best wishes and the hope that you may all stay safe in these
difficult times of Covid.
