Thanks Dan and Andre. And sorry for skipping the subj line (oops).

I'll pass all of this on. The UX looks nice, and I'm sure Erik will be glad when the migration is done :) 

One last question - do you plan to replace this metric in particular in the new version? I haven't found that specific information anywhere you've linked.

Andre, Anne, generally people looking for updates on Wikistats.  We've been spamming the lists / wikis with messages about the plans but we know it gets lost in the noise.  Suggestions for where to post / what to say are always useful.

So the plan is thus:

* The big banner at the top of all Wikistats pages is meant to drive people into the collaborative process of designing Wikistats 2.0.  The latest phase just closed, we went over wireframes, lots of discussion here [1].  Please chime in if you have thoughts / would like to see other metrics represented.  We really thought the banner was clear and very visible, and that seems to not be the case.  Any help re-phrasing that is welcome.  I'm also happy to have tech talks, presentations at metrics, whatever people find useful.
* We don't have a hard deadline for when we're switching over, just planning to launch as much of Wikistats 2.0 as possible, iteratively..  We will have one more consultation on visual design and then start developing the beta version of the new site.  We're communicating on and tracking in these parent tasks: [2], [3].  Timeline-wise, we're aiming to have the most important reports migrated by the end of next quarter.
* Erik is continuing to maintain Wikistats as much as possible, though we all acknowledge this is past the deadline of when he was expecting to stop.
* Discontinued reports are not new in Wikistats, they started being discontinued before the Wikistats 2.0 project, but I can see why people would be tempted to conflate these separate things.

[2] for this quarter's design work
[3] for next quarter's implementation work

I found that
talks about some vague migration or replacement (without more info). might cover
the overall plan (though I cannot find any time line or such).
