Hello. My apologies, this is almost certainly miscategorised, but there just doesn’t seem to be a “dumb questions” category, and your FAQ seems to be fluff not stuff people have actually asked.
I’m a user of a popular open source program. That program has a Yahoo! group. A recent thread in that group mentioned the brokenness of Yahoo! Groups, and the overwhelming consensus from the membership (and from the main op) is that a change to something-anything-not-Yahoo!-groups is well overdue.
Is it possible for an ordinary subscriber to use Discourse purely through email, as one would use a conventional mailing list such as mailman?
Is it possible to migrate content from Yahoo! Groups to Discourse? (I am thinking of something like the Google Groups migration API:
Get Started | Groups Migration API | Google Developers )
I’ve read the “is forum migration worth it” topic. The Yahoo! content doesn’t need to disappear, and nothing special needs to be done to keep links working. I guess it’s more of a membership acceptance thing. More people are likely to agree to a move if they know the old content is already there.
Thanks for your help.
