When did Google ban the rakontointeraktiva group, does anyone know? And why, exactly? I wanted to use the newsgroup to suggest that perhaps Zarf and Lea's play-IF-card ought to be translated into other languages. I'm not sure where to make the suggestion now. -- David Welbourn 14:05, 25 October 2010 (UTC)

I don't remember when it happened (it was certainly several months before December 2009, probably c. 2008-2009?), and as far as I know, Google deleted all these messages and never gave the slightest explanation except "it violated Google's Terms Of Service". I certainly don't recommend creating a Google Group to anyone :-( . A possible explanation is that there were many spams (which weren't deleted by moderators) and often no real posts for many months.
You could try the various foreign-language forums and hope at least some members of them can understand English. I'll do it myself on the French forum. --Eriorg 14:49, 25 October 2010 (UTC)
