Hi, Lauren! Thank you for asking. I know so many of us are looking forward to having this forum up and running. Right now, mid-January is my best estimate. There are quite a few considerations and details that still need tending to, but it's looking really good! We've been busy trying to get settled in our new digs here, and now we get to focus on adding to the mix. So, unless something unforeseen happens, I fully expect the Co-op Forum to start up within first few weeks of the new year. I'm really excited about having the forum again, and I appreciate everyone's interest, patience and support.
Looking at everything, it might be safe to estimate "by the end of January" to avoid disappointment. There several more issues to deal with than I'd originally thought.
Hey, Kat! Great to see you. Yes, we're all pretty excited and working hard to make Co-ops a reality again!
I'm writing up the announcement right now....co-ops are back in business! http://www.mothering.com/community/forum/list/461
