1. this update will not effect the 2 yr running c9 DB that currently exists and user access to it (like we have now) ?
2. the Slashdot effect: say what you like about it - but it is plain and simple - consistant and uncluttered. Hopefully the coffeehouse will remain uncluttered by extra announcements, media clips, ajax frills etc
edit - although it would be great to let us choose to run c9 gadgets on the right -empty- side so long as we can make our own - and or use yours (like the current featured box)
1. We will preserver all data and URLs. We'll probably create a URL handler though to redirect them to more friendly URLs.
2. Yes. This is definitely on our minds, I want to keep Coffeehouse as is. We will not introduce more announcements, clips, etc.
We are interested in more Ajax in the forums though to eliminate refreshes. Thoughts?
