Congrats,

You are the first. Most of the world can not see the new site yet. LotusElan.net is switching to a new hosting company. The change for all the addresses to change in Internet land was put in about 6 hours ago. It will take another 48 hours for most of the internet companies to make the change. Then more people will be able to see the new discussion boards.

Interesting. It will take a bit of time to get used to the new site but it does seem to be much 'cleaner' on the screen, especially without those ads! Not sure about splitting +2s away from the Elan, though.
What will happen to the old posts, Jeff? Will they be archived or have I missed finding the right 'button'?
There is a lot of good history there.

The mail list is still allive and well. I wanted to provide two ways for people to work together.

I have switched the ability to search the mailing list to "escribe". The new <a href='http://www.escribe.com/automotive/european/lotuselan/index.html' target='_blank'>Mail List Search Function</a> is easier to search and the ads are not as intrusive.

I like the <a href='http://www.escribe.com/automotive/european/lotuselan/index.html?by=Thread' target='_blank'> Threaded View </a> of the archive.

One of the goals of LotusElan.net is to use services that do not bombard you with hundreds of ads. Or at least use stes that are not so annoying with the ads.

Great to have a forum for the Elan at last. I don't like mailing lists, they are usually so chaotic. A forum is much better.
Where is majority of users coming from? UK or US?
