Syriac Studies online has long relied on the Hugoye-list, at Yahoo Groups, formerly at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/hugoye-list/. But this closed in 2018. This evening I was looking for the new location, and Google really was not that helpful.
In fact the new location was announced on Twitter by @bethmardutho here:
Important announcement: for 20 years, we have hosted an email listserv on Yahoo Groups. As of this month, we are transitioning to a new listserv format. You can find our new home at: https://groups.io/g/hugoye-list
We’ve made this decision because the Yahoo groups format has become increasingly unreliable. Some messages aren’t getting through to the list at all, and we’ve always had some difficulty with some email addresses not being added.
The groups.io format allowed us to automatically transfer our whole member list and the database of messages (over 4600+ threads!).
If you aren’t already a member of the listserv, and you’d like to join, just send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: as a transition period, we will keep the old Yahoo group open through the end of 2018, but all messages will be automatically moderated. Then, at the end of the year, we will shut down the yahoo group completely.
So that’s that. Find the new group here:
