Forum redesign progress?

Note to IB folks:

Would it be possible to have a thread where progress or issues regarding the changeover to the new forum layout and related topics could be discussed? Not only the spam, but recurring timeouts, preview and posting difficulties, and other annoying legacy problems are still with us, and a heads-up as to how things are moving would be very welcome.

I know this kind of changeover is harder and more complicated than many people think, but an information blackout doesn't help either.

Thanks for your consideration of this request.

Good idea as some have already stated that if the new

format is too difficult , they will not participate or

reduce their frequency of participation.

Is the Lounge gone? I don't see it in the Change Forum list. Haven't had access for one week but it did pop up for a few hours. Is it just me?

Micheline -- you must be logged on to see the Lounge -- it is still there.

Topping this because we need the update more than ever.

And just in case anyone is reading this, I'll mention that the time stamps are three hours early, and the Lounge search engine doesn't work for threads started in the last three months.

I am finding that trip reports don't come up in the Search feature. Very maddening as I use trip reports a lot when planning. They can be found under the profile name though, for example kja and Jamiekins and others who I know write very good TR's.

A few days ago, I got a white out for nearly 24 hours and was hoping we would get an update after that.
