Please make sure we don’t “loose” each other, I was just so pleased to see that this list is getting back to life again.

Agree with all of this.

Agree with all of that, including the current admins remaining as admins.

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.
