I have a degree in computer science, so I understand how it works, but it's a rather outdated medium,
Your degree in computer science should tell you that:
(a) the IT world very much subject to fashions and being unfashionable
is often confused with outdated (OK, a recent degree might not, in
itself, tell you that but extensive experience in the industry will)
(b) the fact that something is unfashionable doesn't mean it doesn't work.
IME tweaking things which work for the sake of fashion is a major cause
of breakage. Moving over to Reddit would be an enormous break in that
it would cut the group off from its history unless you could fangle a
means of transferring that history over. As you've only just found the
group you may not be aware of the stress caused by losing one of the
archives of that history, Rootsweb. Long term users are not going to be
enthused by the idea of a complete cut-off.
