<p>Wow, I just noticed some news today, Sep 3, which–to me–is tragic. (This is about the CF Forums, though, not this CF portal where you are reading this.) If you visit the front page of any of the Adobe CF forums or subforums (like for CF Administration), as well as several other non-ColdFusion Adobe forums, you will see a message stating that: We are excited to announce we will be delivering a modern community experience to you in the very near […]</p>

So this post and my comment will only be around for the next 6 days? Hopefully RSS will continue to work.  I know that there were some pretty weird issues regarding private forums forcing required authentication just to access the RSS feed.  It's since been fixed, but perhaps it was still an issue that made the forum difficult for me to remotely follow.

James, no.  This is about the more long-standing Adobe *Forums* (<a href="https://forums.adobe.com/community/coldfusion/" rel="nofollow">https://forums.adobe.com/community/coldfusion/</a>) only, not this newer CF Portal (<a href="https://coldfusion.adobe.com/">https://coldfusion.adobe.com/</a>). I will edit the post to make that more clear. FWIW, there is some bridging between the two, but I would not expect the removal of the content in the forums to affect content created here in the portal. Only Adobe can tell us for sure. As for the RSS feeds of the portal here, they are there, but not exposed well. The links are offered in the underlying HTML (so if you point a feed reader just to any portal page they will be found): <a href="https://coldfusion.adobe.com/feed/">https://coldfusion.adobe.com/feed/</a> and <a href="https://coldfusion.adobe.com/comments/feed/">https://coldfusion.adobe.com/comments/feed/</a> Thanks for the comment, though.

Thanks for letting us know Charlie. I have hard time understanding the difficulty of having a current backup and moving it to the new forums but oh well... Adobe knows the best!

Cem, yep. Since you don't say "as well", I'll just point out that I did make the same assertion: "<em>Why isn’t the new system being based on a backup taken instead the weekend before the cutover? Where is this being discussed, if it has been?</em>"
