    >>Topics that were removed more than 6 months ago can now be re-proposed.

    Where is the option for re-proposed topics to be re-removed?

    Sure, I know that proposed topics can be voted down but there is typically a very good reason they were removed in the first place and that they should never be resurrected.

    >>Lounge group converted to a private group. Previously migrated question content removed.

    Might want to also mention all previous certifications will also be removed from people's profiles.  Unless, I misunderstood the change.

    potentially to really the first time and wanted to give it the chance to come back if the community needed it. No rules, just leaves the door open

    Is the missing space in "Helpful Hints:How do I XYZ?" a typo?

    @Modalot, It will have a space, if that is what you are referring to.
