Community & Business Groups

Deployment plan for new Community and Business Group site – 12 February


We plan to deploy the new Community and Business Group site on Thursday, 12 February 2015 at 10am ET.

We announced [1] the beta site on 29 September 2014 to test a list of features [2] and have made changes based on feedback. We have also
improved the performance of the “current groups” and “reports” pages.

We expect the deployment to require less than one hour. During deployment, people:

* CAN join and leave existing groups.
* CAN propose new groups (but they won’t be created until after deployment).
* CANNOT create or modify blog posts.

After deployment, if you see issues, please write to

Note: We do not expect to maintain the beta server indefinitely, so those URIs are not permanent.
