Batchville: a new batch email discussion group

#1 Post by Sponge Belly » 07 Nov 2020 17:58

Hello All,

Icymi, Yahoo! Groups is shutting down on Dec 15th. When YG goes, Batch World will go with it. BW is over 20 years old and has 1500+ members. Foxidrive was a regular contributor. :(

I think BW’s imminent demise is a shame because it’s the only email discussion group I know of devoted to Batch. In an attempt to continue its long history, I set up a new group called Batchville on Goups.io. To join, simply send an email to:

atchville+subscribe@groups.io

I look forward to hearing from you! 8)

SB, I tried to join twice and get "MAILER-DAEMON@yahoo.com, Failure Notice, Sorry, we were unable to deliver your message, 510: 5.1.1 That group does not exist."
This was done after setting up an account with my yahoo email account.

Hi Jerry,

The new group is hosted on Groups.io, not Yahoo! To subscribe, send an email with a blank subject line to:

batchville+subscribe@groups.io

See you there! :)

Are there any other subscription methods available Sponge Belly? I do not understand the need to do this via email, could you explain please.

I used to use that group many years ago, with Foxi, Billious, Phil Robyn, etc. when it was a Usenet group and I had a good newsgroup reader. Unfortunately these days, I'm not willing to use or navigate to a Google site for any reason, especially when there's so much spam posted there, (which even when reported, does not get taken down).

Hi Compo,

You can subscribe to the group via the website. Go to the Batchville Home Page, and click on the Join This Group button. Enter your email address in the form, and click on the Confirm Email Address button. You will receive an email from Groups.io with a link in it. Click on the link so that Groups.io knows it’s really you, and you will become a member of the group.

Welcome aboard! :)
