    3. Not quite. First, they're not reactivating any old lists, even if you were or want to be the owner, as of a week or two ago. Second, it is no longer possible to put a new message into the list / archives. The ONLY thing that can be done is to create a new place for the List (such as on Groups.io) and then Rootsweb MAY still be asked to post the Groups.io group website URL at the top right of the old RootsWeb List Archives as the "new place to go" for continuing the discussions. That what I did. Regards - Glen C.

    3. The only happy thoughts I have about the lists closing is when I think of the thousands or maybe hundred of thousands of bounces the spammers are going to get when the list server shuts down.

    3. Hello Peter Please clarify. Do you want to admin the board? Is it available to adopt? If there's no "Volunteer to Admin" on the page, it's not available. If it's a topic/locality/surname that's of interest to you and it's available to adopt, click on the Volunteer to Admin and you'll be notified if you're chosen. Here's what a board admin's duties are: <https://www.ancestry.co.uk/boards/admin/admininfo.aspx> As a board admin you'll check posts on the board to make sure they're on topic and adhere to community standards and board rules. You will fmove off-topic posts to boards where they are on topic, delete spam or commercial messages, edit surname fields and classifications, and answer posts if you have the information. There's a board administrators' board and, on Groups.io, a board administrators' mailing list that you can turn to for help and advice. Hope that helps! Lynne Peter J.

    3. Yup Jim; We been here so long its splitting us all up. Even tho we will be on list owners lists for certain other places, being in one place for all was my concern. Not just as list owners but as people who have been a group for so long. I think half or more lo people have joined the list i offered. The rest did not think they wanted to be on one more list. I made an offer to be ion one place still, but thats all I can do. Its up to all to make the choices. I wont be posting any more on this list, or any other lo type list. So if those who did not join wont be hearing from me any more. I wont be using the groups.io.

    3. I have a link in Excel to the My Alerts page so I can have a macro open the board for me. That way I can open several boards at once and page through them.

If you are set up to get alerts from several different boards you *do* need to go separately to every one to read the latest messages -> more clicking, whereas with Lists you can read everything in your e-mail inbox.

What that tells me is that you need to learn how to USE the boards effectively. I don't understand why you would need to go to "multiple locations" to get the same information. Any boards you admin or boards that you want to follow...just click the link on that board to add the board to MY ALERTS (or MY FAVORITES). Set up a link in your browser to take you directly to your Alerts or favorites and you get a list of all the boards you included and all boards on your list that have new posts will be at the top in descending order based upon date of latest new post. I check my ALERTS daily or even more often and start at the top and work my way down until I've reviewed all posts I have not yet read. Also, you will be notified via email with a clickable link any time there is a response posted to any or your own posts or replies. Very simple and easier than emails because you can do all this at your convenience. Joan Young jyoung6180@aol.com -----Original Message----- From: Mary D.

My own preference is for mailing lists, but it has nothing to do with privacy. I simply find it much easier to use mailing lists, where everything comes to my inbox, rather than having to go multiple locations to get the same information. I suppose you could say I'm lazy. I haven't needed to ask any questions in quite some time, but if I did need to ask, I'd much prefer to do it via a mailing list -- again, due to pure laziness on my part. My email client is a one-stop shop you could say. That's my perspective for what it's worth. -- Mary On 2/24/20 1:29 PM, Joan Young via LISTOWNERS wrote: > While I respect everyone's right to their own opinion I have to wonder why lists would seem more private than boards? Yes, list mail is delivered by private email to YOU...it is also archived and searchable and can be browsed just like the boards. Or perhaps it is because you can reply privately to the individual's email address and not include the list? > > > Joan Young > jyoung6180@aol.com > > > -----Original Message----- > From: Lynne <lklein@mindspring.com> > To: Listowners list for Rootsweb list admins and moderators > <listowners@rootsweb.com> > Sent: Mon, Feb 24, 2020 10:49 am > Subject: [LO] Re: Boards-Admins Migration? > > Yes, Jim and I know that, since we are some of the admins who last > posted there. :-) > > Perhaps we're alone in liking to use the list rather than the board to talk about board admin issues.
