To me this is like "Fox News may stop working so I signed up to Alex Jones instead"
LOL! Happens to be, I am not a fan of YWN, but the reason I use it for text updates is because it's the only option to get news via SMS (and VIN). As the saying goes "A beggar can't be a chooser". If CNN was the only platform to get  news via SMS, I would have that.

Just got this from Kol Haolam:

IMPORTANT: Kol Haolam TEXTS WILL STOP! The platform we have been using for is no longer an option. Please follow instructions in the next post.

Please send a Text message 'Join' to: 347-625-7339. we will not respond but will save your number so we can text you as soon as we're up and running on a new platform.
Interestingly enough, I got news from them on the same exact number, from the same exact platform. Possibly the Russians hacked them....

Not surprising, because a lot of their news is fake ;D. Moral is, don't trust everything you see on Kol Haolam.

How can someone remove himself from DansDeals GroupMe SMS notifications while still getting notifications from other groups?

Thank you.
They ended up muting the notifications.
This way they can unmute after their vacation.

Seems like SMS via GroupMe is toast.

Any other affordable SMS options?

Look into spinning up a bespoke solution? @BAHayman
There's a tens of sms providers out there. Obviously will cost much more than what you have now, but might be worth it

Everything else was a fortune for sending out ~100,000 daily SMS.
Not really worth it when anyone with a smartphone can use Whatsapp, Telegram, or Twitter for free.

All links or short links?

I'm afraid the recent change to short links is the culprit. Short links are always more prone to be blocked.

I would think that most people that texting is the only option don't either have a browser and when they see a deal they are interested in they go to the computer to find it (meaning they dont need the links in the text either way). So if Groupme will work better with no links (which I have my doubts about but I BH moved all my chats to Remind so I don't really know) then maybe you just need to send out a PSA that the groupme option will only be a notification without links and if you have a smartphone switch to a more reliable option.

Although not sure how that will work with you IFTT

Ahh there is discussion at these 2 links about remind. Maybe that would work?

The free Remind option is limited to 150 people. The paid plan can have 5k but you would need to reach out to them for a quote. Although its officially made for schools when they ask what school you're you can select not a school. It's possible the paid versions are only available for schools as intended.
