Yahoo Groups Shutdown

Yahoo Groups, host of the CCVillage mailing list, has announced that it will start shutting down many features of the Yahoo Groups service on October 28, 2019.  CCVillage will be transitioning to a new mailing list service provider before then.  Watch the mailing list for news and instructions.

About CCVillage

The CCVillage email mailing list uses the Yahoo Groups platform.  Anyone may join CCVillage and receive the messages.  Messages posted by new subscribers are moderated and have to be approved before they are sent out to the mailing list (so don't be surprised if your first messages don't show up right away!)  

Messages are usually moderated several times a day but sometimes it may take multiple days if the moderator gets busy.  Once it is clear you are not a spammer or advertiser you will usually be allowed to post without prior moderator approval.  However, repeat posters and people who might need some extra help with messages will stay under or be switched back to moderation.  

If you do not follow the posting guidelines your messages may be deleted without warning, but the moderator will try to let people know why their messages are not approved at first, unless they are obvious spam.

CCVillage History

The Chevy Chase Village Manager and staff had been running the CCVillage mailing list since 2006.  With the creation of the News Alerts broadcast lists for official notifications, they decided to turn over the CCVillage list to the community and put out a call for volunteers to manage it.  At their March 2012 meeting, the Village Board of Managers introduced Village resident Tim Slagle as the new CCVillage mailing list administrator.

About the Moderator

The moderator of CCVillage is Tim Slagle.  Tim has been living in the Village on Kirkside Drive since 2008.  He is an electrical engineer and general purpose techie, and has been involved with the Internet and mailing lists since grad school in the late 1980’s.  He tries to run CCVillage with a light touch, working "behind the scenes" to help subscribers and filter out messages that don't meet the posting guidlines.  He can be contacted at ccvillage-owner@yahoogroups.com with any questions or comments about the list.
