Noting that this forum is advertised as being in a "test" mode currently what is the likelihood of it becoming the active forum quite soon?
As the days pass we have active topics in 2 forums - old and new - and so far as I can see they are not being merged.
If there are no plans to merge them people should be informed and encouraged to use the new forum (presumably) or abandon the "test" program for any significant discussions.
If there is a conversion utility available such that the old forum posts can be merged at some point then running dual forums is perhaps less of a problem - although where a thread exists and is active in both forums that may be somewhat challenging to get right.
If there is no conversion utility available who is going to undertake the merge task?
As a user of both forums (and thinking about the likely opinions of other users) I would be somewhat disappointed to find that there was no means available to merge the posts and yet also no daily guidance and encouragement to make use of the new forum if that is the one that will in fact be used going forward.
If the old one is to continue for a while, because testing is highlighting problems of some sort, then tell us so that we don't post what might be important threads for some people on a system database that is likely to be discarded.
