💡We are getting ready to migrate our current community to a brand-new and very shiny community platform in a few weeks' time! 🤩 There are a few important updates to expect over the next few days: The current community will be on read-only while we finalise the move. It means that you will still be able to access the platform but won't be able to post any new questions or content. More details about the exact dates to come. During the migration process, we will replace all our members' current user nicknames with first names only ( no surnames). You'll be able to change your profile details once we switch to the new platform. We aim to transfer all the users' reputation points so that you don't have to start it all over again. We are super excited to take our Intercom Community to the next level! Also, we are super proud to have you all as part of our community! LET'S GO!!!
