Yes, the old site is locking down. You won’t be able to post over there anymore. You’ll be able to access it all, but continued conversation will happen here.
Here’s the full text of the email:
Exciting news: we’re moving on to the next phase for the redesign of our website! NaNoWriMo and Camp NaNoWriMo will both take place at nanowrimo.org starting in 2020. What does this mean for you?
Starting in mid-August 2019, nanowrimo.org and campnanowrimo.orgwill redirect to the redesigned version of the website at nanowrimo.org. The redesign is still underway, so be sure to check back in September for the full launch!
If you need anything from the current version of the websites, you’ll be able to visit archive.nanowrimo.org, or archive.campnanowrimo.org. These archives will remain up indefinitely. In the meantime…
…We are preserving your important information on the redesigned site! Your username, bio, other profile details, and writing project history will transfer over seamlessly.
If you have a profile at nanowrimo.org and campnanowrimo.org, we will default to your nanowrimo.org profile information in the merge. So, if you have different bios, profile pictures, or other details on each site, make sure the one you prefer is on nanowrimo.org.
We’ll also add both your Camp writing projects and your NaNo-novels into your new unified profile for a complete history of your writing!
We won’t be saving Camper Messages, buddy relationships on either site, or NaNoMail. If you have messages you would like to save, or buddies you don’t want to lose track of, you can take screenshots, or copy and paste information now, or later from the archived sites!
We are still stamping out bugs and finalizing features, and we really appreciate your enthusiasm, patience, and support. We’ll continue to keep you updated!
Seeing if we can get some seven-league boots for this next stride,
