Frequently Asked Questions

Pamoya is new, Pamoya is different. But never difficult. And if you get lost, here are the most frequently asked questions that will get you back on track.

You send your contribution to a group specific e-mail address.
The e-mail address is constructed as follows [group_name][at]wougnet[dot]org (replace [group_name], [at] and [dot] accordingly).
Example: To send a contribution to the wougnet-l forum address it to wougnet-l[at]wougnet[dot]org (replace [at] and [dot] accordingly).

The Wougnet Mailinglists where hosted by Kabissa. In May 2009 they switched off their hosting services and moved into new ventures.

Wougnet decided to move their mailinglists to Pamoya. Pamoya could give them new Web 2.0 functionality, like user profiles, full text search, social networking and much more. Wougnet could not have build this only for themselves, so they decided to team up with Pamoya.

All the mailinglists archives are transferred to Pamoya, as well as all users and memberships.
