To my knowledge the download limit has been switched off.

OR

Due to such light traffic in the groups, what we're doing may not be triggering limits.

I just DL'd a full 90k group in one go.

If you're pressed for time I would even recommend an instance of PGO per group.

DL them simultaneously.

Cheers,

Wilson.

Might be due to traffic then.

We know that the limit is in part related to how much activity a group has.

So there's like a group & individual limit which sum.

If no one else is using the group limit allowance then you, as an individual can hammer on.

Cheers,

Wilson.

I downloaded ver 4.0.902 and am very impressed by the ease of use and the efficiency of the program. However, I am unable to download more than 1000 messages. If I try to I get a dialog asking me to register. I thought the software was unlimited during the trial period; did I misunderstand?

Yes.

It used to have a 14 day trial but that makes little sense in the face of a service that's closing.

The objective of a trial is to see if it works for you.

Allowing users to download all the data they want for 14 days is simply asking to be stiffed.

Before the YG closure announcement my conversion rate was 50%.

After, it was 3%.

So 47% of users who would have bought just decided they didn't have to.

So now it has a trial that reflects the new situation.

HTH,

Wilson Logan (PGO creator).

Thanks for the explanation. I guessed as much but I wanted to check, especially as I could find no mention on the website or this forum and the Registration help-page refers to a 30-day evaluation period...

Also, I found out about the program from another site where one Wilson Logan says "The software has become effectively free"!  ???

Well, within the context of PGO being supplied with a pre-downloaded archive file (which it was), it is free.

You can login to Yahoo, get your groups list and load them all from archive files.

You can then read, sort & search them using PGO for the rest of eternity.

Its just the download function that's not free.

If you have a group with 10,000 members, only one person has to do the download.

Everyone else gets it for free.

That's 99.99% free :)

Cheers,

Wilson.

OK I see (I think).

I’m pleased to say I was able over the weekend to download all 38,000 messages from a group in one go. It took several hours but there were no interruptions so it does seem there is no Yahoo d/l limit any longer.

The software is undeniably the business!

I think its horses for courses. 

Some people get hit, some don't.

We've just been lucky!

Cheers,

Wilson.
