The Changes at the Crossword Club

The forthcoming changes at the Crossword Club have now been officially announced:

https://www.crosswordclub.co.uk/forum/forum_thread.php?forum_id=5&thread_id=250659&pnum=1

As far as the brain trust here at TftT can see, these changes will have little impact on us, except for the discontinuance of the Times Literary Supplement puzzle.   We will no longer be able to blog this puzzle, and the final TLS blog will be appearing in a few weeks.   I would like to thank our four TLS bloggers for their loyal service in blogging this rather difficult puzzle.

I am asking that anyone who wishes to discuss these changes post here, rather than to the individual puzzle threads.   Our friend and founder of this blog, Peter Biddlecombe, is very confident that the site will work well, and that the remaining technical glitches will soon be fixed.

August 10, 8 PM - This entry will be unpinned from the top of the blog tomorrow.   Last call for complaints!   Thanks to all those who provided detailed explanations of their difficulties and why they matter.
