    Sorry that you've missed a few comps. You are the first, and so far only person who has encountered a problem.

    The change was proposed for valid reasons, then discussed in Compers Chat. Nobody objected to the proposed change, so the TAB and Puzzler threads were moved. Some people noticed the change fairly quickly, others when they went looking for the threads as part of their routine. Those who bookmark the threads or subscribe were not affected. After a few days it was noticed (by studying "thanks") that some people had still not realised they had been moved so THIS THREAD was posted on the main forum and bumped a few times. From the comments, this informed a few more compers about the change, and the number of thanks against each post in the two threads showed that virtually everyone was now finding them in their new location.

    The change has completely solved the problem caused by overenthusiastic use of the "Expired" button, and I am sure there would now be objections to returning to the previous situation.
