More to the point, I'm so glad we had St John the Baptist - A blood relation of Jesus Christ - on our side. How could we lose?

See Mag, edition 2, Ed's comments.

Will any unedited entries be moving as well?

Gnomon - time to move on

I believe that all entries, edited and unedited, and all conversations will be moving. But I'm not 100% certain of that.

"I believe that all entries, edited and unedited, and all conversations will be moving."

And deleted? If you can "undelete" an entry now, you should still be able to do it after the move.

The plan is to move *everything* "as is", the whole kit and caboodle, lock stock and barrel. but we'll let you know when we know.

As for the search engine... we've got some ideas for that too smiley - winkeye

"Although prudence would suggest doing that now" (kea)

I was thinking there might be "deleted" entries in the personal spaces of people who lost their accounts in the BBC iD debacle that people might want to recover if they get their accounts back after the move... smiley - geek

'The plan is to move *everything* "as is", the whole kit and caboodle, lock stock and barrel. but we'll let you know when we know.'

- Indeed, though there may have to be some caveats, for instance some researchers have stated that they *don't want* there material transferred, again we'll let you know when we know.

2legs - Hey, babe, take a walk on the wild side...

Just to make everyone smiley - groan I think we can say, "there are known knowns, and unknown knowns" smiley - sorry With a lot of these types of questions, I think it comes down, I guess to the detail.... and I don't think any of us yet have got the really really fine detail yet from the BBC as regards what is and what isn't potentially in the DNA databasaes etc... smiley - huhsmiley - zensmiley - geek

And the new search?! we must* have a new search... I vote that it is the 'nighthoover search facility' smiley - winkeyesmiley - run
