The URL structure of the beta site is a bit different. Is that change permanent, or is it just for the beta? And if it is permanent, will old URLs still work or redirect?

<./>Askh2g2</.> seems to have become <./>ask_h2g2</.> and the conversations have URLs which include the A-numbers of their parent entries.

Not at all. That page was a great help and in time we can help you re-write it if you like, once we're up and running proper with the new site. smiley - ok
