On the matter of the unavailable Google Group

Posted under General

I discovered that apparently you can access it only if you are logged in with a Google account.
I think it would be a good idea to archive the works uploaded there somewhere else because this situation is not ideal.
Opinions?

It apparently depends on whether or not the group admin gives you access permissions.

I say that because I can access the group just fine on one Google account, but can't if I use another.

Either the stories need to be uploaded elsewhere (which is a good idea anyways because backups) or viewing permissions need to be reviewed and set to ALL.

Is that so? I wonder why it changed, it used to be public.

Meanwhile I'm archiving my own tales on my archive, which I advertise again: https://vannilla.org/creamy/reader.html

If someone wants to put some other content there it's fine of course, but I'd search for a third choice too.

It's weird because I haven't touched the settings. It should be visible for all.

I re-toggled it and it seems to be ok now. Google usually does this sort of stuff without telling people what's going on.

edit: For the record it has always been visible for all, but need membership to post (to prevent spam bots).

Somehow I still can't see it, but if the setting is toggled then it can also simply be Google making it unavailable to non-Chrome browsers.

edit: Google added a new setting where it defaults to being visible only to members of the group.

I've updated the settings and it should be visible once again. Sorry I didn't notice it the first time.

The current functionalities are actually improved, I was used to text starting a new line after very few characters!
Thanks for everything Poweryoga(did I even thank you for helping me with this OYP account, some time ago? If not I do it now).

great to see the stories are still there and people still write. I actually have "An Eye for an Eye" open in one for the 700 tabs on my phone now and will finish reading it at some point.
