Over the last several years, the Unicode Forum hosted on the Unicode website has not seen sufficient activity to justify its continuing maintenance. Accordingly, the Unicode Consortium is planning to close the forum, effective December 31, 2014. Most of the existing content in the forum will be kept available as a read-only archive, but any existing forum accounts will be locked, and new sign-up will be turned off.
We encourage forum users to join the ongoing, active discussions about Unicode topics on the email lists: http://www.unicode.org/consortium/distlist.html
Those who wish to follow only official announcements can also find those regularly posted on the Unicode Blog: http://unicode-inc.blogspot.com/
Announcement postings from the blog are also tweeted https://twitter.com/unicode as well as echoed on our Google+ and Facebook pages.
