Yahoo Groups - for blog post

  • This is a 'representative sample' of a public Yahoo Group's content. It is not a full copy of the original Yahoo Group. With the 'archive-crawler' group a 2+ hour autopilot run gets a significant portion of the content available (hundreds of messages of the thousands contained in the account). This is a good sample representing the experience of using Yahoo Groups and many messages exchanged even though it is not a full copy of the original.

    The captured messages can be browsed via the navigation bar on the left side or in many cases using the buttons in the Yahoo interface for moving from one message to the next.

    A 'representative sample' of Yahoo Groups content can be obtained for public groups using a customized autopilot behavior in Webrecorder. This collection contains materials going back to some point in 2018 but this collection is not a full copy of the contents of the Yahoo Group (which has been active since 2012).
