You may notice something a little different about this site

Everything changes and nothing stands still — at least if Heraclitus is to be believed.

Today, you can believe the old philosopher. My IT team and our friends at BoardingArea are putting the finishing touches on a top-to-bottom redesign of this site. We wanted to create something more mobile-friendly, interactive and useful.

Elliott Advocacy is underwritten by Seven Corners. Seven Corners has helped customers all over the world with travel difficulties, big and small. As one of the few remaining privately owned travel insurance companies, Seven Corners provides insurance plans and 24/7 travel assistance services to more than a million people each year. Because we’re privately held, we can focus on the customer without the constraints that larger companies have. Visit Seven Corners to learn more.

Among the changes:

Brand new forums.
We switched to Xenforo, which is simply the best forum software out there. Our new forum will focus on solving common consumer problems, but there will be a fair amount of discussion, too. I hope you’ll participate. Please log in to the new forum now and get your username.

A mobile-friendly blog design.
We’re using a new theme framework called Foundation to design the site. It’s fast, responsive and fun to work with. We stripped away all of the extraneous graphics and banners and tried to focus on the commentary and discussion. You know, less is more. I hope we’ve succeeded.

A new company contact database.
As many of you know, we lost a whole year’s worth of research in our company contact database during a tragic system error this summer. We’re almost ready to unveil a new company contact section that uses custom fields and is completely exportable. You’ll be able to see the results by clicking on “company contacts” under the “help” banner. We expect it to go live later today.

So why am I telling you about this? Because I need your feedback. Tell us if you see any glitches or if there are any features you’d like us to add to the new site.

And please mind the wet paint and ladders. We’re still fixing a few things.

It’s OK. Heraclitus said this would happen.
