 In any case, although it is true that Yahoo Groups are much maligned, and probably for good reason, we do try to keep as much information as possible about as many Gaggias as possible and to help troubleshoot issues that Gaggia owners have.

Of course you could share the knowledge and information here instead of "keeping as much information as possible."  :)  Nice to see you post again, but better if sharing.

PID that you have ordered can help that steam by raising the average temperature/pressure.  You should be able to get reasonably dry steam after a little bleed.

I saw the smiley, so I know you aren't dissing me/us, but I would like to explain just a bit why GUG is a separate entity, and why we will keep it that way.  It is a forum dedicated only only only to Gaggias.  It is therefore more focused and less diverse than what you get here where everyone with every kind of coffee question is welcome and can be advised.  We also have the ability to store a lot of files and photos and "how to" articles which are only about Gaggias.  

To then duplicate all of that information in answers to questions here?  That would maybe be very nice of me, but honestly there are not enough hours in the day, and my threshold for repeating myself is very low.  Even in the GUG forum I am known for being pretty crabby about people who take no time at all to read the information which has been archived before asking the same questions we have answered over and over and over.

In any case, any of you who are particularly interested in, fluent with, curious about, your Gaggias, we encourage you to join us at GUG.  We expect that you will continue your presence here.  It's not an either or for members;  it's kinda an either or for me just because I'm old and tired...

Understand that I have no interest in undermining or undervaluing the Gaggia information that is being shared here.  I'm just wanting to make another source of information available.

who probably could have said that with a lot fewer words...

Susan, yep correct, no diss.  As long as you are answering, why no lurking or reading of the knowledge base/articles.  It used to be open. Being closed makes it a different feel.

I will look into that.
It is a good question.

I'll come back soon and let you know what I can do to make it more friendly.

Thank you Susan.  My apology for hijacking the thread.

Ditto on the apologies.
Just so you know, I don't know how to change this part of the set up of the Yahoo Group.
I kinda ended up in charge without having set it all up myself, so I am floundering a bit.

I will continue to pursue it, but it is possible that I won't be able to loosen up some parts (like letting everyone access to files even if they can't post) without loosening up parts that I can't (like .....oh never mind).  

I am not giving up yet, but ....it is possible that becoming a member will still be necessary to get the goodies that we are keeping in the vaults :-))))  The options that Yahoo gives me just don't seem flexible enough for me to be able to open up the front door without also leaving the cash register open.  I think we are probably stuck in the current format.

Perhaps a start on "non-member access"

Click Here (help.yahoo.com)

You may be way beyond that.  I was just trying to make sure that there were choices available to you.

Thanks, and although my route to that page was somewhat different, again what I found is that I had no options that allowed me to let non-members view files.  I can allow non-members to view "Links", and I have done so, but honestly there isn't a raft of information in that particular part of the forum.  What you want to see are the Files, and I am given no options at all to allow that.  Sorry.  I would if I could.  I have asked a more tech savvy moderator for his help, but again I suspect the problem is Yahoo's lack of flexibility.

I wonder why it changed about 1 year ago, I viewed before that.  Thanks again for trying.
