Support groups

Post by whall3y » Tue Jan 07, 2020 8:59 pm

Why does MechCAD continue to point users at the Yahoo groups for self support ? Starting December 14, 2019 Yahoo Groups stopped hosting user created content on its sites, and new content was no longer allowed to be uploaded after October 28, 2019.

Why not point here? :?:

True, but users can still join groups, and send email to their groups. So the Yahoo group is not completely dead, just not usable as a web forum anymore.

Probably because MechCAD never really cared about these forums. I had to practically beg MechCAD to even create these forums in the first place, and there has been very little MechCAD presence here. That, and MechCAD is very slow to do anything, so it will probably take them awhile to update their main site to point here, given that it has never pointed here before, even though this forum has been here for many years now.
