** Good news!
We’ve launched a new and improved ACESCentral. This forum has not changed, except that it is now located at a subdomain and accessible from acescentral.com using the Community>>Discussion Forum tab)

We already know that the nav for the Forum is different than the nav for the site and are working on that now.)
The new design is based largely on user requests. The biggest ask we heard from the ACES Community was to make non-discussion information and links more readily available. The original ACESCentral was launched as a discussion forum because we needed a way to provide discussion and help for people trying to use ACES.
We’ve now got thousands of users and posts and a robust community including ACES Mentors and others helping each other solve workflow issues and develop the next generation of ACES. But a lot of the basic information and links from “What is ACES?” to “Where do I find the “Quick Start Guides?” or “Where is that Virtual Working Group Home Page?” gradually became buried somewhere deep in the posts.
So the new design will have much of this information available from both the top nav bar and call-out features on the home page.
It will include a real-time calendar that you can use to subscribe to events and Virtual Working Group meetings. It will also have new features like a searchable Knowledge Base.
Importantly, the existing forum will be easily available under the Community Tab:
and although we will eventually move many of the non-discussion threads out of the forum, we are preserving all posts during the transition to be sure it’s a smooth experience.
All this will be available at the current URL: acescentral.com. We hope you’d find it an enjoyable set of features and user experience when we launch!
