Talk:Yahoo! Groups

Is the history correct? The RATales page says about the history of the RATAles mailing list: It began on ONElist, which merged with eGroups in November 1999 and then became Yahoo!Groups when eGroups was bought out by Yahoo in August 2000. That's the way I remember it too. First ONElist, then ONElist merged with eGroups and then Yahoo! took over eGroups. (There was even Yahoo!/eGroups anthropomorfic!) --Doro 20:19, 15 April 2010 (UTC)

Yes. ONElist and eGroups merged first, and then was taken over by Yahoo that merged it with its clubs to the Yahoo Groups of today. That's what the eGroups Wikipedia page says too.--RatCreature 09:37, 16 April 2010 (UTC)

Non-mailing list Yahoo! projects

Anyone up for working on this page? Perhaps making a general Yahoo! page, instead of one centered around mailing lists? There's now an attitude that "Yahoo ruins everything" after they bought (and nearly destroyed) delicious, and now Tumblr. Wasn't Yahoo behind Geocities, too? --Anenko (talk) 20:23, 4 June 2013 (UTC)
