We are volunteers dedicated to restore the pre-August 2013 group interface here at Yahoo! groups.
1.On August 7th 2013,Yahoo rolled out without advance notice a new group
Interface called 'neo groups'.
2.This new interface has rendered the groups unmanageable.
3.Two key security flaws have been discovered.One in particular has
been discovered that neutralizes the 'neo'format.This is significant.
Software of this type is a harbinger that will not only crash Yahoo
groups but the total internet.The old format used a matrix that could
not be compromised.
4.The elderly and visually impaired have complained that 'neo groups' is
not in compliance with the ADA.The chronically ill have come to depend
on the old format as a life saver to network with health care
5.Students are no longer able to post their homework assignments in the
databases.This has adversely affected home school and education
6.Hundreds of arts groups had years of artwork wiped away.This also
includes photos,files,and graphics.
7.A respectable percentage of group owners have asked,then demanded
that 'neo' be rolled back.Later,Yahoo group users joined in the
8.Due to the 'neo' format,hundreds of groups have been deleted by
their owners.This affects 1 million users.The last active
teen/family network disbanded two weeks ago.A component of that
network was a spotlighted group in 2000.The network served 120,000
9.Yahoo! groups are more than a social network.They were town halls
before Facebook.They were memorials to Columbine,9-11,and family
members.They were information centers and place to get homework
help.They were the best we had to offer.They were our homes.
The 'neo' format has leveled our homes.
