View Full Version : MSN CLOSING DOWN --VCVC2

10-20-2008, 03:09 PM
MSN Groups is closing down. They are the hosts of VCVC2. My concerns are how are we going to save all our pictures their. It might take a group effort to get these pictures stored somewhere. I am far from a computer wizard, so we need all the input we can get to save our info stored over there. http://www.bobreyes.com/myblog/2008/10/16/msn-groups-closing-down/

I seem to remember reading that MSN is shutting down it's groups and shifting over to something called Multiply. They were offering a way for all the groups on MSN to transfer over in bulk. I don't remember the particulars, but, it needs to be read into, I would think!

Later! Redman.

I store all our family pictures at Kodak.

Can we switch to yahoo or some other server?

Looks like the easiest way to to move every thing especially photos is by going with "Multiply", they are suppose to have a migration tool coming out soon to make it easy. I'll try to get an email out to the members when this happens.

My understanding is what Carl just said, except that the members list will not and can not be moved. So, everyone will need to sign up again. Carl, I am in no way computer sauvy, think you can help with this when the time comes?

Greg, I'll try to email all of the members about signing up again like Leadfoot sugested to me.

awesome, thanks carl.
the pics and everything seem to be working just fine. this network seems to have a lot more options than the msn set up as well. it's pretty cool to see all of the pics on one big page too.

Savage...click on photos ,click view all and at the bottom of the page it gives you the option of what page. It goes to 12 currently. I had to go to page 11 to view my photo account!

yea, i had that same problem too, wookie. i assume that means that someone else in another group on multiply already has "lance" as a log in, so i had to select another. i used the latin version of my name, "lancelatus". if you type in your old log in, and then add letters or symbols to it, it will tell you when you have found an unused one. you might try something like "wookie1" or whatever your log in used to be. good luck.
