Stan, in the past I’ve offered to host a domain on my web server. I even have a license for XenForo forum software. XenForo is a great platform, but it doesn’t offer migration from Yahoo Groups. It’s very feature rich, such as different sub-forums (categories), advanced moderation with multiple moderators, public or member-only areas, social media integration, mobile friendly, etc.
Let me know if I can help.

Subject: [sikmleaders] Should we stay or should we go?
I have been dealing with Yahoo on two problems with our Yahoo group. They recently responded with this message: “Yahoo Groups isn't a supported product. The engineering team is spread thin and has to prioritize issues.”
Susan Ostreicher suggested that we consider migrating the SIKM Leaders Community's discussions from the current Yahoo Group to Groups.io. I read up on this, and it is a good idea. The founder of Groups.io was also the founder of Yahoo Groups. There is a migration tool to move our discussions (but not our files) to Groups.io. For more, see:
There are two other options I have thought about:
The priorities for a new platform are:
Which of these alternatives do you prefer?
