Access to the new InputMapper website is now open to the public. Any users interested in remaining active in the IM community are encouraged to goto beta.inputmapper.com and sign up. Users who have a current IM account with ads removed due to a donation should create an account on the new site during this beta period and access the "Account Migration" option from the main menu of the new site to keep donor status.
This is the only period (while both sites are running side by side) where donors will be able to automatically migrate their status to the new site and thus to IM 1.7. After this period of time it will be a manual process of opening a ticket to get status back.
The site itself is still in fairly early stages of design and both sites will run side by side for a while while until both the new site and IM 1.7 are complete.
