I just changed a WordPress over to Disqus and once I created the account on their site, it took literally 30 seconds to switch over to Disqus. The install is automated and totally seamless. Looks like you can even import existing comments although I've never done that myself.

What do we think about ditching the word "forum" from the logo up there?

I mean, if we're merged, is it really necessary to include "forum" in the logo? This part of the website is obviously a forum. I presume the future URL will be https://streets.mn/forum

I'm just thinking in terms of simplicity, branding, etc., it seems not necessary. Plus, then we can just call the damn site "streets mn" and I won't have to worry about what silly acronyms or shorthand people will come up with ;)

I kind of like the word forum, because it "brands" the site as a different part of streets.mn. I'd go one step farther and make the actual logo say "streets.mn/forum" or "forum.streets.mn" depending on what it will be in the end.

There are technical issues that make a merger more complicated than it probably should be -- I suspect it would be easiest to make "urbanmsp.com" become something like "forum.streets.mn", but that still has its own set of issues.

I still used the old address to get here, so for a few days I thought something was seriously wrong before I figured out that the redirect was just no longer working.

One of the site managers also needs to fix the link from the streets.mn homepage.

Thanks for the note about the bad link -- I've updated it on the main page.

UrbanMSP.com domain is back (although https://forum.streets.mn is still the canonical URL). So old links from outside sources work again, although internal links should all be corrected to the current URL.
