Do Adobe product-oriented User Groups in various localities around the world still exist?
On a whim, I decided to look them up, only for the Adobe site to show the worldwide directory of User Groups for no more than a split second before diverting my web browser to the Adobe home page. Does this mean Adobe has shut them down?
Where are you / your group location / group name?
Unfortunately, the worldwide (groups.adobe.com) directory page is no longer active.
Adobe User Groups are alive and well.
Some of the links online have been consolidated to give communities a more unified resource. User group managers are actively trying to put events into the Community Events pages. The conversion will take a little time, but it can be an active reminder for everyone. Note: Groups without notable user/community support have been rotated out of an official list for now.

In Los Angeles? Come hang out.
Here are some snaps from our last meetup ~ October 2016
They are still a thing! Check out meetup.com and facebook. We have a fabulous group in Denver... Denver Adobe Creative Cloud User Group ( I know, it's a mouthful!) Feel free to join us on Facebook... Denver Creative Cloud Users Group | Facebook
John, I've sent your question to the User Group team.
Thanks so much!
Yes, the information is correct, and thanks for adding me to the next update!
I am still working on the main site, but I put the blog up for now. If you go to the main site, it will re-direct you to the blog:
Can I ask is Adobe still planning to re-create the groups site on adobe.com?
Also, should I rename the site to Animate instead of Flash? I have been asking myself this for a while now.
Is there a page to go to for User Group managers to connect with each other for questions? I know there is the Adobe Communities, and the events calendar, and the lounge. Where is the forum for the Adobe User Group Program?
Okay, I know that this is the wrong place for this, but I did a search for "User Groups" and I was only shown "Community Events" Is there no longer a forum for Adobe User Groups?
I am looking for advice on if I should change the name of my User Group from the Hawaii Flash User Group to something like Hawaii Animate, or something else to reflect the new Animate name. Yes, this should have been done awhile ago!
We have talks on AS3, Flex, Flash, Animation, Starling, and of course the new Animate CC.
Also, I am thinking about planning a new Adobe Camp to celebrate Adobe Animate CC 2017!
I've just used the User Group Directory page. Apparently there are no user groups of any type whatsoever in London, UK. I know we're just a provincial city in northern Europe but I would have expected at least one UG.
Our User Group in Armenia also have meeting, connects and we organize competitions yearly

I think we can use connect for User Groups regularly to share our thought and ideas. What you think?
Hit me up if you need any Connect training!
I will say that the Adobe user groups program is very strong today as well! I run the Adobe AIR developers user group and we had our first meeting with about 20 people showing up. Before this I ran the Hawaii animate user group and before that the Hawaii flash user group. This is been going on since 2007.
I do wish that Adobe would have re-created the groups.adobe.com I use meet up like many others do these days. It would be great if there was a place on the Adobe.com website for the user groups.
