Welcome to the new home for korgpolyex

This group is for users and abusers of KORG POLY 800 and EX800 music synthesizers. This forum was created quickly in response to Verizon deciding to shut down (2019) the korgpolyex group in Yahoo Groups. This means that the forum is light on content and may have some quirks to begin with. But please stay with us while we sort the wrinkles out.

This is the new forum for "korgpolyex" which originally lived on Yahoo Groups. But in 2019, Verizon decided to shut the entire Yahoo Groups down, so here we are and welcome!

G'day Mike!

having been a long time member on the Korg Poly/EX800 group on Yahoo, very happy to see the forum will be retained!

Is there any way to archive the history from that group? would be a massive loss to the discussion if not!

also happy to moderate if you would like someone else on board

Cheers

Marcus Wilson

Hi JB,

thanks for waiting this long for a response. It turns out the forums software version was too old and most things were broken including emails.

So now we're upgraded and running beautifully.

If you would still like to moderate that would be great. Though I think we can wait a bit and see how many members sign up. We're pretty light at the moment.

I don't have the time or skills to import the yahoo groups onto this forum. And I am not sure I would want to import it is there being so much noise on the yahoo list.

Cheers for now,

/Mike
