Received this in my e-mail this morning. Can anyone explain?
Dear MSN Groups Customer,
As a valued MSN Groups or MSN Communities Web Folders customer, we want to notify you that the MSN Groups service will close on February 21, 2009 and you will have the opportunity to move your group to our new partner service, Multiply. We understand the importance of keeping your group together, so we partnered with Multiply to create a migration process that moves your group to their service to preserve your online community and its history. Read on to find out about how to kick off the automatic migration of your group to Multiply.
We realise this may be unexpected, so before presenting your options we want to briefly share why we've made this decision.
Because we are dedicated to providing our customers with the most current and user friendly technology available today we made the difficult decision to close the MSN Groups service. This decision is part of an overall investment to update and re-align our online services with Windows Live. In the long term we believe that closing the service is the best way to continue to offer innovative and effective services that help you stay in touch with the people you care about. We plan to launch a new Groups service in the coming weeks, but unlike MSN Groups, Windows Live Groups will focus on offering a place for small groups to collaborate. Multiply is available now, making it your best option today for continuing to share and communicate together online.
i got this too, i don't think i belong to any msn communities, so i'm guessing it's a blanket email to anyone who uses any msn service, i have a hotmail account
Means the Raven's Realm is closing and you should save anything that's there that you want (photos etc).
Ah, The Raven's Realm, of course. I remember waving goodbye to the realm a long time ago. Wonderful times then, and I can still read some of my poetry, just can't copy it. Thanks!
Yeah, I figured it had to do with the Raven's Realm and possibly some other MSN groups which I might have joined back in Abuzz days and never ever visit any more. So I just ignored the whole thing.
