So whassup with this whole "new board" thing? Who knew this was happening? What is the goal? How will the new board be different from the old board? Is the old board going away? Will our gems be lost to posterity? Once the switchover commences (or, more properly, now that it has commenced), how long before we are new? Will the old URL still work? Inquiring minds want to know.

that little grey/gray box up on top is the extent of my knowledge; but the implication is that any post made before Mon, Sep 26, 6 PM will be carried over to the new board.

Or either we could argue about whether* "any post made after Mon, Sep 26, 6 PM may not be carried over to the new board" means that they will not be permitted to be carried over or that it is possible that they will not be carried over.

*I.e., discuss the semantic implications.

Or there may be a missing period, double dash, or semicolon:

Any post made after September 26 may not be carried; over to the new board!

I have nothing further to add, other than to note that those who refrain from posting in the interregnum should be pointed out as only being in it for the glory of posteriority.

a posting in the interregnum sounds quite painful to me, though perhaps I'm a little behind on things.

Ohmigawd--y'all're terrible!
So, the new board will look different, you think? It won't somehow look the same but just be different "underneath"?

I copied the birthday thread to my Word program just in case things go screwy and we lose it. Should we copy the language links and tips for newcomers ?
