What's New
with Yahoo! Groups
Yahoo! Groups Photos 2.0

Starting November 21st, we will be upgrading Yahoo! Groups photos. Not
all groups will be affected immediately; the changes will take place
gradually over a 4-6 week period. Here is what you'll see with the
Photos Vitality

When new photos are added to a group, we will alert you on the Group
Home Page in the same way that we already do for new messages,
members, files, and links.
New Photos Page

To make it easier to find the new photos, we're also creating a
special "New Photos" page, which will display all the photos uploaded
to a group in the last seven days.
Increased Moderator Power

*********** Rick look at this *****************
Moderators who want to approve photos before they are uploaded to the
group will have the power to do so.
Bigger Views


Currently, photos can only be viewed as thumbnails and a "screen size"
view (approx. 400 x 300 pixels). We will be offering a new "large"
view that will be up to twice as big!
More Photos

Currently, we store the original photos posted to Groups even though
we don't display them to anyone but the Group Moderator. Now, we will
only store the smaller display images, rather than the originals,
which will mean more space for more pictures.
Albums Not Folders

Photos will now be stored in "albums" rather than folders. Albums will
now look better, they will display the first photo in the album as a
cover photo, and the owners of an album will have the ability to
resort the photos.

However, the change also means you will no longer be able to place a
photo album in another photo album, nor add photos to a group without
putting them in an album. For existing groups that are using these
features, folders in your group's photo area that are currently stored
in other folders will be brought to the top level; while photos that
are currently not in any folder will be automatically added to a new
album called "Miscellaneous".
Let Us Know What You Think

We hope you enjoy the new photos features. If you would like to tell
us what you think, please send an email to
Outage Advisories

Yahoo! Groups will be performing critical database maintenance on
Tuesday night, December 27th from 9:00 pm - 2:00 am Wednesday
(California time). During that time 25% of groups will be offline.
Messages sent to affected groups during that time will be queued and
delivered once the groups are back online.

If you want to be notified about planned downtimes in advance by
email, join Yahoo! Groups Alerts. This is an "announcement only" group
to send out notifications about scheduled downtimes.
