Single Status Update
Here's the deal. If you get rid of the old version of the web interface I will jump to another product. I will never upgrade to premium unless I see some assurances that the old version will not be abandoned. As soon as I see such assurances I will upgrade to premium. It's just that simple.
I don't care about how much work you are doing under the hood, I don't care about how pretty the new version is, At its core, it's just awful. Since EN appears to be preventing new accounts to access the old version I'm guessing it's master plan is to one day say, "O look the majority of our users are using the new version, it must be a success, time to close down the old version." If that's really the plan all I can say is, God bless your little hearts.
