Moving from the old forum to the new community format is not ideal, but I did notice that our old forum has only 68 people. That was a surprise.
The new "community" forum already has almost 600 members and so is probably a better place to reach more people and for them to find and reach you.
I don't know how large the U.K. group is - I could not find the membership size.
(I did post a welcome note - feel free to add to it so we know you have "arrived":
Hopefully we will all find each other again in a format that facilitates communication, learning and helping. Over time one the new sites will become a prime destination.
All the best to you on your continuing journey with CML.
