Could we have a count-down once you have set a date for the new look?

This sounds great. However, I'd like to see an improvement in performance. I know it varies dependent on number of users and time of day, but it's not normal to have to wait 3 minutes for an update to a blog post to be completed. If you want to check this through your activity logs I made the update at 10.01am this morning, 27th Feb.

Have to concur with Stephen's view on performance. This morning has been particularly slow. I'm concerned because I want to launch a new group which will consist of new members for KHub. Their first experience of the service will be crucial in how they get involved.

Hi Ed, Steve and Rob, thanks for your comments. We are looking to go live at the end of March. A couple of issues are currently being worked on and once resolved we will announce a definite date. As blogs are not only published in the main blog area, but can also be pulled into individual groups via their tags, they can sometimes take a little longer to publish due to the system scanning the relevant groups that match the tags used. The new version of Knowledge Hub uses single page application, which will significantly improve performance across the site, and via any devices used. We are not aware of any performance issues today. If you are still experiencing slowness please can you email support@khub.net with further detail and we can look into it for you. Thanks Dimple

I'd like to coordinate launch of a new group with the new version. Any idea at all about the date or when an announcement could be made? It would be useful to know if this is going to occur in March?
