Moment of Silence - Rtsrtrade
See you later - rtsrboardoftrade

Yes, yahoo groups is closing down that part of it. I think messages can still be posted,
but all files etc are being deleted by Dec 14th.

Well, it was a great group, for trades, and getting shows.
Long since obsolete, but it was my main source for a long long time.

It was the second yahoo groups, after the first closed down.

Lots of good times there.

I don't think the messages were archived, so farewell to that.

Re: Moment of Silence - Rtsrtrade
It would also be nice, if there was a way to scrape the messages.
I have archives of the dirtylist from 2001-2005, and the digests
from 2001-2012 up there, and they would have to be downloaded
one at a time i think. .. ugh.

We have been working on a solution. Your moment of silence is appreciated.

Re: Moment of Silence - Rtsrtrade
There is a way to get your own messages,
if you can figure out how to get the entire group you moderate, let me know.
I have a ton of the dirtylist archives, and messages in my own group.

here's how you get your own:

Re: Moment of Silence - Rtsrtrade
Raj, do you have any archives besides the two Yahoo Groups: DIRTYLIST_ and dirtylist_archive? I'm members of both of those already.

Using the provided Yahoo tool, I was able to download the entire message archives for those 2 groups, as well as rtsrboardoftrade and rtsr-trade. They were provided as mbox files, so I'm looking into importing that format into the forums. I'm going to see if I can make it work before the 14th, so I can avoid having to pay for PG Offline to get it into a database.

Just go to:

https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/getmydata

and initiate a request there. It'll take a day or two to process the request, but then you'll be able to revisit that page and download the entire message and files archives for all the groups that you're a member of, not just your own messages.

That's weird. It did it for all of the groups that I'm a member of, none of which I started, and only one of which I'm an "owner" of. I got full message archives and all the files and links in the groups.
