Announcing the Shut Down of Kfalconcam Group

Yahoo is shutting down Yahoo Groups on December 15, 2020. This includes the Kfalconcam group started in 2002 by Mountain Woman. Some longtime falcon watchers still receive Rfalconcam Forum posts via email through the Rfalconcam-Kfalconcam connection that was established at the start of the Rfalconcam Forum in 2009. This will be discontinued when the Kfalconcam group is shut down.

Please note that the Rfalconcam Forum is not affected by this shutdown and will continue to be available at https://rfalconcam.com/forum/.

This is the message sent by Yahoo this morning:

Dear Yahoo Group Moderators and Members,

We launched Yahoo Groups 20 years ago to connect people around their shared interests. We helped our users navigate new towns, keep in touch with college friends, learn new skills, and most importantly, build connections they may have lost or never had in the first place. While we could not have been more proud of what we accomplished together, we are reaching out today with heavy hearts to let you know that we have decided to shut down Yahoo Groups on December 15, 2020.

Yahoo Groups has seen a steady decline in usage over the last several years. Over that same period we’ve witnessed unprecedented levels of engagement across our properties as customers seek out premium, trustworthy content. To that end, we must sometimes make difficult decisions regarding products that no longer fit our long-term strategy as we hone our focus on other areas of the business.

Beginning December 15, 2020 the Yahoo Groups website will shut down and members will no longer be able to send or receive emails from Yahoo Groups. We’ve compiled a comprehensive FAQ here that includes alternative providers and information on how this will impact your group content.

Thank you for helping us build one of the earliest digital communities — we’re proud and honored to have forged countless connections over the last 20 years and played a small part in helping build your communities.

The Yahoo Groups team

    Thank-you, Jess.

    The end of another era. Although we are still here, something is lost by being a stand-alone site, as great as it is. It was so helpful having a place to browse different groups and join one that interested you that you never knew existed.

    Thanks for letting us know Jess.

    I wish I had known it was still out there! Lots of great memories. Thanks for telling us.
