Consider: And how is this change going to change our question and answer forum with the members, and how would this change affect new members wanting to participate?

I believe the biggest change would be to the newest members that would not know what the old IQ was like to be able to tell the difference.

This is similar to children growing up today that think Television was always color, CDs are old technology (What is an LP or 8 Track????) lol

I remember when my dad used to record us on his tape recorder, you had to put on a real of tape thread it though to a blank real it had 4 tracks on each tape. Of course this can still be found in music recording but these were actually the standard family recorders everyone had one even though they were as big as a small suit case! lol

My first PC worked on DOS, windows didn't even exist then! Nor did the internet even, oh what change a few years makes.

So I do not think the newest people just joining the new IQ would understand what it was like for us on the old IQ. But at least when the old is gone we the loyal from the beginning will have the memory of what it was like.

On the plus side Simon says the new IQ will be better.

I don't remember saying that the new IQ would be better - in some respects it won't be - but we don't have a choice right now. And, at least, this software (the one that runs IQ Meta) is under our control, rather than a third party, which is highly significant from my point of view. Not having ultimate control or knowledge of whether "old" IQ would continue to exist or not has proved to be quite a frustrating situation over the past several months. Having the issue forced in this way with an accompanying clear opportunity to take control will, I feel, eventually prove to be a good thing.

@Wade C: I can appreciate everything you have said in your answer, and “wow” all those details does sound ancient to my ears now. And yes it would be like music to the ones that were not exposed to these experiences.

I like your answer, especially since I feel that it would benefit the new member to ask more questions, about the old IQ.

Also based upon Simon’s comments, I gathered that it is a process that we will have to feel our way through, at least until we know what works, and what we need to work on. Thank you.
