    Open Carry Movement on Facebook will soon be archived

    That's Right.

    This group is scheduled to be archived

    Over the next few months, Facebook will be archiving all groups created using the old groups format. When this group is archived, its wall posts, photos and discussion threads will move to the new groups format, but group members will need to be re-added.
    Is there no way to transfer membership??? That's a little insane, if you ask me. Sounds like FB is doing a "cleansing" of topics with which it doesn't agree, without actually deleting the group altogether. The actual hard drive space required to store membership information for 2,238 members is this long: 111 10111010 00001100 00001100 01001100 10100101 10100110. That's 7 bytes long for each, for a total of 15k. At $100/Terabyte, that comes to approximately $0.0015.

    That's right - about 1/7th of one cent.

    So, saving money can't be the reason they're deleting all the members...

    Welcome to "Internet II" folks...
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    I think If the person that controls the group actively switches to the new format, all the members will be switched as well without having to re-add them. I'm in several groups that seemed to have done that and I didnt need to Rejoin them.

    This is accurate. Paranoia and conspiracy is not . . .

    Facebook is changing the way it manages groups, gun or no gun. Every group on Facebook must switch to the new Group format or be archived. Nothing sadistic to it.

    By the way, I'm new. The name comes from the Foghorn Leghorn cartoons, not the liberal definition.

    I am probably one of the few folks under 30 who are not on Facebook. How many followers are there on the Open Carry Movement page?

    As a systems analyst (former life prior to entering the military), I assure you there's no reason not to automatically convert all groups' data formats by default and archive groups on another basis, such as the lack of any activity in the last six months. FB's choice of associating archiving with a manual choice by those who established the group is errant, particularly when the group is going strong but whoever started it is no longer around.

    By the way, I'm not very fond of folks intentionally ascribing grossly inaccurate perceptions such as "sadistic," "paranoid," or "conspiracy theorist" to me when my intent was quite clear: To inform this forum their FB group was soon to be archived. My comment about them "saving money can't be the reason they're deleting all the members" is indicative of FB's faulty policies. They should convert all groups, unless the group isn't being used, in which case it should be archived.

    Archiving a group because it's originator is no longer around (or interested) in switching formats is akin to bulldozing a local clubhouse and its members for the same reason. Who cares if the originator isn't around? If the club remains active, it's a viable club.

    Is there no way to transfer membership??? That's a little insane, if you ask me. Sounds like FB is doing a "cleansing" of topics with which it doesn't agree, without actually deleting the group altogether.
