Group updates, group deletions.

The Freegle move took me a bit by surprise, I didn't see it coming and as a result I have a bunch of people asking me "I have moved my group to Freegle, can I delete the old one from the Recycling Group Finder"?

The simple answer is no (not yet), there is no facility for moderators to delete groups right now. I do automatically delete groups that Yahoo have taken down, but not groups that still exist.

It's going to take me a little while longer to get something up and running to handle the situation where a group needs to be deleted without me being involved (this is an "outside work" project and I've got other stuff that needs doing) but in the mean-time please email me the URL of both the new and old groups on the Finder and I will arrange the 'removal' of the group.

The URLs I am interested in are the ones specific to the group, with the number before the name like in this image:

If the URL doesn't have a number in it then it's the wrong one, and don't forget I need the URLs for both the old and new groups. Contact information at the bottom of every Recycling Group Finder page.

Freegle groups now supported

I've added support for Freegle groups to the Recycling Group Finder, they worked before but were marked as 'Independent'. Now they will come up as 'Freegle' groups.
