Yahoo is deleting all Yahoo groups on Dec. 14. Some groups have come up
on this list, and I've been archiving some of them. Others don't exist
any longer, or are restricted to members only.
If someone here is a member of one of these groups, that have been
mentioned on this list, could you use Yahoo's tools
(https://groups.yahoo.com/neo/getmydata) to download the messages of
(Some of them may not be election method-related, in which case just
ignore them. And if someone knows of more election-method related
groups, reply with their name :-)
I have already downloaded the messages of most of the above, but without
being a member, I can't get the full mail addresses of the members.
The following groups seem to have been restricted so non-members can't
even read them. If anyone is a member, it'd be good to have an archive
For the restricted groups, Yahoo's tools will download the messages.
https://github.com/IgnoredAmbience/yahoo-group-archiver will also
There's another tool here: https://github.com/ArchiveTeam/yahoogroups-grab
but I haven't used it because it requires MongoDB and I don't have it
