I realize that this is not the proper place to post this question, but I am at wits end! I am a member of a local EAA chapter and I am in charge of handling our Yahoo Group web site. I am somewhat lost as how to perform certain duties within the web site.
 
The main problem that I have right now is managing the member's information. When I took over the job of handling the Yahoo Group I noticed that the list of members page had everyone's email address but there was NO first and last names associated with the email addresses. So I had NO idea how owned what email address.
 
If someone out there can please direct me to the right place to get some help!!! I have been Googling for three months and I have not been able to find any answers!
 
Please help!

I still have a few Yahoo groups but I haven't used them since Onelist(Onegroup?) days. Is it possible to send mass mail requesting people to renew their membership with name?

I still have a few Yahoo groups but I haven't used them since Onelist(Onegroup?) days. Is it possible to send mass mail requesting people to renew their membership with name? 

The only way that I have been able to add/change/correct spelling of a member's name in the Yahoo Group member list is when I was made an owner/moderator I was able to edit MY name only. I could not edit anyone else's name.

 

The only thing that I can think of is to remove a member and then re-invite them. However, I have not been able to find out where a member must write in his name so that it appears in the member list. I invited a member a few days ago and I did it on my computer (with his permission)so that I could see what the "invite" looked like and I saw no place where to enter his name!

 

I really would like to see a tutorial of the invite process. Do you know where I can go to find out this info. Yahoo supposedly has discontinued it's chat program and I found no place online where a phone number was listed--so I guess everyone is on their own as far as Yahoo is concerned???

I wish I could help. I tried signing into my account in the first time in about 10+years and it wouldn't recognize my email. Unsub doesn't even work for me even though I am the owner. Seems most of Yahoo groups is taken over by spammers. My only choice it seems is to mark my own list as spam. LOL

Is there something else out there that could replace the function of Yahoo Group web site and not have all of their problems?

No and Yahoo Groups are mostly obsolete. Most folks have moved on to Facebook or Twitter. I still own a couple but they're inactive for the most part and they aren't worth wasting my time.
