Freecycling

Fighting for freerecyling

IMPORTANT: If your group gets deleted

Just now I tried to find Brighton (UK) freecycle group – and had difficulties.  The Cafe still exists with the freecycle epithet, but the group has either been renamed or deleted.  Also the link on the main TFN page does not work.  It occurs to me that in the near term many groups may be deleted.

This could mean that you, the owner decided to simply delete the group.  It could also be that, sadly you did not take heed and removed ErsatzFriend which was possibly used by TFN to delete your group.  It could also be that TFN complained to Yahoo about your group and that subsequently (this takes a few days) Yahoo then deleted it.

Anyway if your group gets deleted, and even if you are just a member and want it restored then ask Yahoo, officially.  “Deleted” groups are simply taken off-line and can be restored for up to 120 days.  If you have any problems making the approach then ask me or others for assistance.
