Yahoo group 2002-2007

In 2001 Yahoo took over eGroups.com, and yahoo!clubs and eGroups merged into Yahoo!Groups. The Yahoo!Groups layout has hardly changed since then. Over the years, the number of members rose to 93 but in the last two years the activity level dropped.

November 2007

There was no possibility to upgrade the yahoo!group to something with more features, so we decided to start something new: a php-forum. The contents of the yahoo-group were transferred to the new forum.

February 2008

In January the forum was upgraded to phpBB version 3.0.0, with a new default style: prosilver.

July 2008

Upgrade to version 3.0.2 and minor layout changes.
