I am afraid there are a few Yahoo groups that I needed when I started out, like EQMOD/ASCOM, Maxim and CCDComander... but the interface is decades old... I have a thread in CCDComander on a flip problem that is continually lost to me whenever someone comments.  Regardless, not sure at all you need a Yahoo PI group.

OK, guys, no more Yahoo Tech Group- PixInsight.

Thanks to those who joined.  Thanks to those who gave me an honest opinion.

Lest anyone think there's ill feeling or I was pushed, badgered, or bullied into this, I wasn't.  I gave it some thought and I agree with those who think it is just not necessary.

All the best,
David

Hi all, I checked into the thread to see if there'd been new activity. I found myself somewhat agreeing with Troy's post, who had seconded Don's sentiment, before I saw yours David. I have mixed feelings. It's likely someone else will start one at Yahoo, and I'd much rather have a level headed, super nice guy such as you behind it than an unknown. While I still feel the idea was redundant, and possibly ground for posters to spread misinformation, I feel bad. Thank you very much for stating what you did concerning your decision. I understand we have at least one friend in common and I am impressed with you and hope we get to meet at some point.
Best always, Warren

And I, for one, through this whole process, have made new virtual friends with Warren, David, and Harry. Ironically, it's brought me closer to the PI forum community and now that I have two actual posts to it, my posting activation energy has been overcome so I anticipate using it more.

Easy solution? Make the group or reinstate it, then simply point all users to this forum... That way, those who tend to go to the Yahoo Group interface will find us.
