“The End Is Nigh” (for Yahoo Groups)

As you may have heard Yahoo Groups is shutting down as of December 14 (They will be freezing the uploading of new content as of October 21st [some places say October 28th).

John Rauchert (from DQPA) has been working on archives of the various DQ lists.

As a replacement to the DQN-list, I have a listserv I set up through Antherwyck.com that can serve as the new home for DragonQuest discussions.  If you get an archive of old DQ lists and content, we can add links to those from the pages for the list.

It’s very rudimentary, and mostly using default settings right now, so some tweaks will need to be made in the next few weeks.  But hopefully this is an appropriate and useful replacement for the Yahoo groups, and can help support the DQ community into the future.

(I’m in the midst of a move into a new house, so I’m a little distracted and overwhelmed at the moment, but I will try to stay on top of the administration to get this launched well and up and running.)

Cheers!
