Yahoo Cydonia group archives to be destroyed
#1
The Yahoo Cydonia group archives are going to be destroyed.

According to Yahoo, they are going to destroy the content in all of the Yahoo groups. No more content can be added to the groups after October 28 (this Monday), and the contents will be "permanently removed" on December 14.

The last posting in the Yahoo Cydonia group was in 2016, and it had slowed down for a couple of years before that. I don't know if people stopped looking at Mars for anomalies in that group, became dis-illusioned or what. In 2016 I was too busy with cancer treatment (I'm fine now) to think about Mars. Mac Tonnies was the only official admin at the time of his death and I don't think we were able to get anyone set up to formally replace him as such. The owner is that fellow from Malta (whose name escapes me at this moment -- Joseph something?) who stopped interacting with the forum many years ago.

Is there some way any of you can save the contents of the Yahoo Cydonia group as an archive somewhere? It's way beyond my technical abilities. I think we had some excellent discussions there, and made observations about Mars anomalies that shouldn't just disappear. I always thought it was one of the most grounded Mars anomalies forums out there, and we lost so much when other Mars anomalies forums shut down and weren't saved.

I'm not even sure how much of the group is accessible at this point, I seem to possibly be no longer listed as a member -- at least it isn't giving me access to the membership list, or giving me an option to post.

I occasionally lurk here at Hidden Mission, but Mars is one of the many things I don't seem to have as much free time to explore as much as I'd like. I think fondly of the fascinating discussions we had in the old days, and wish you well.

The process will finish on December 14, when everything will be erased permanently from Yahoo's servers. Files, polls, calendars, conversations, folders calendars – not a trace will remain.

Download your data
That window gives you a few months to download your data before it's gone for good, and it's well worth doing; you might not recall exactly what you've shared on Yahoo Groups over the years, but there may be the odd photo or file that you'll look back on fondly, or posts that you'll want to hang onto.

To grab your content, head over to your Yahoo Group's page and you should see a link to download everything directly. Alternatively, you can log into your Yahoo account on Verizon Media's Privacy Dashboard and request the data.

There might be quite a lot to package up, depending on how active your Yahoo Groups were, so you'll receive an email once it's all archived and ready to download.

Carol, do you have a link to the Yahoo Group itself?

I got in Yahoo; but cannot get Cydonia Group to come up so I can SEE into it.

I had to re-do password to get on Yahoo; but I still cannot find that Group.

Times a ticking.

This is the VERY beginning of the creation of this site.  There are only two others I can find with names I recall, some of them are now dead and with Wook Angel .

I found ONE pdf clicked and downloaded, also a You tube from 2000 also saved.

I have 2 TWO doctor apts I have to get up go to tomorrow.

Unless you can get image on the page; you CAN go through page after page and resurrect the entire thing.

I do not have time to do that.  If there was a single download "back screen" then only the 1st creator can grab it ALL at once.  Here are first three posts in 2000
