Perhaps this will shed some light as to why some apparently have no problems, such as I, while others do.
it was soon noticed that certain users (accounts, not groups) were affected, and that "/neo/" had become part of the URL when those users viewed their groups. So the nickname "neo" has been adopted, as apparently intended by the Groups Team at Yahoo.
A few other things can be said about it: It appears to be a test rollout of a new format of Yahoo Groups, though nothing has been said about it publicly by Yahoo. It has nothing to do with the "Neo Yahoo Mail," which is by now old and a done deal.

Test "participants" are involuntary, with no notice given nor permission sought. If your groups look normal, you are not involved in the "Neo" test. It is NOT limited to any geographical area, but worldwide. Those selected will find ALL their groups affected. At first, all those selected appeared to be owners of at least one group, though more recently, members-only have reported being added to the "Neo" test ranks, and at least one NEW group member has reported being added upon joining their first Yahoo Group.

The changes to Yahoo Groups called "Neo" are absolutely deplorable. Management and site navigation utterly sucks! The list of bugs is too long to be worth compiling here. Let's see what happens but this might kill Yahoo Groups!
