How does it work?

SnowPals uses a Yahoo! Groups as a central hub for group communications, interactions and members’ postings.

“Yahoo Groups is an online discussion board. The term Groups refers to Internet communication which is a hybrid between an electronic mailing list and a threaded Internet forum, in other words, Group messages can be read and posted by e-mail or on the Group’s webpage like a web forum. In addition, members can choose whether to receive individual, daily digest(a once a day email summary of the previous day’s messages) or Special Delivery e-mails(by group moderators and founder), or simply read Group posts on the Group’s web site without receiving any group emails.” – from Wikipedia

SnowPals is a member-only access group(with 6,650 members and growing as of Sept 2015), and we’re free to join. Notably, SnowPals’ postings are moderated. New postings are moderated to prevent commercial solicitations. Please read the welcome message after you have signed up to learn more about moderated group messages and how the Snowpals community group works .

Am I required to have a Yahoo email or Yahoo ID to sign up?

It is not necessary to register with Yahoo! or sign up for a new Yahoo email in order to participate in Yahoo Groups. The basic mailing list functionality is available to any e-mail address. You can choose to sign-up by simply signing into facebook or by signing into your Google account(see screen shot below). If you already have a Yahoo email, you can sign-up with it.
