Yep. Sounds like a high-shelf choice so far.  Notes:

- yes, sad

- yes, we can reconvene on a new platform without max pain

- no, don't panic

- always Powderworks.org is meant to signpost the past present and future platforms for pw, for just such mass migrations. 

- let's keep an email style platform operating, it's still got traction 

- let's try to capture and curate the archive of mail, members, images, links, calendar. 

- we have 2 months for a graceful retreat/reposition. 


Let's keep the chaos low and the transparent cooperation high. Do we (the list) agree on the current admins making arrangements transparently or is there something else to mention as needed/better?


Cheers to decades more oily powderworks, on tech-stacks we don't even know of yet. (Discord?)

I discovered Powderworks in about 1995 and would like to see it continue. groups.io looks like a good option, because they can transfer the archives from Yahoo. I hate Facebook.
