Since the old Yahoo Dragon Warriors group has a lot files and no online backup of many of them exists this is important. The .jpg map files for Steven Dove's A Family Plot Adventure, for example are only in the group and not available any place else. (The PDF of the Adventure is on the DW Wiki though.)

Make sure you have copies of all files from the group.

Hopefully we can get a mirror to house what files that can be salvaged

This message was posted on the Mythic Role Playing Yahoo Group and details the changes.

Yahoo has made the decision to no longer allow users to upload content to the Yahoo Groups site. Beginning October 21, you won't be able to upload any more content to the site, and as of December 14 all previously posted content on the site will be permanently removed. You'll have until that date to save anything you've uploaded.

What features will go away?
* Files
* Polls
* Links
* Photos
* Folders
* Calendar
* Database
* Attachments
* Conversations
* Email Updates
* Message Digest
* Message History

What will happen to the site?
The Yahoo Groups site will continue to exist, however, all public groups will be made private or restricted. Any new group members will need to request an invite or be invited by an admin. Admins will still be able to manage various group settings, though some functionality will be limited.

What will happen on October 21st?
On October 21st, you will no longer be able to upload any content to the site. To share info with members of your groups, you'll continue to be able to do so via email.

I already have a copy of the raw content. Check out this thread:

viewtopic.php?f=14&t=34

It will be a problem to complete the index, though, as the point was to link through to the Yahoo source thread. I'll give that some more thought before deciding what to do (although it's a project that's _WAAAY_ down the list anyway).
