In 2020 we installed a banner atop all forum webpage presentations cueing visitors to a consolidated 'hub' or 'portal' page serving as an index to forum discussions about the pandemic conditions.

This was done as a convenience to the membership, for whom COVID was and continued to be a topic of daily and personal concern.

The banner is being retired, and it will no longer appear at the top of each forum listing presentation.

The COVID-related threads will continue to be available for ongoing discussions.

We will continue to provide a single 'hub' index to these COVID-related threads:

https://forums.forteana.org/index.p...disease-2019-covid-19-index-hub-portal.67106/

... but we won't be advertising it at the top of each and every page anymore.

I knew something looked different at the top of the homepage today, but for the life of me I couldn't work out what it was until I saw this thread. :crazy:

I suggest making a new Specialist Topic for Covid with the hub and threads included.

Your suggestion has been brought to the attention of the staff.

After discussion ...

The staff consensus is that the current arrangement (as revised yesterday; with the banner removed) is adequate / reasonable, and adding a dedicated COVID section to the forum structure is not warranted.
