"While we can't promise any specific release date, we do feel that enough progress has been made that completion sometime this year is more likely than not. The only major skeletal systems left are the Bell Shop and the moderation system."
Will the site launch with a Bell Shop? Don't worry about the rest, I'm sure we'll all promise to behave for a little bit if the moderation system isn't available at launch.

As for the avatars, love the Lunar Horizon and updated Landscape avatar background! It will cool to have some of the new NH characters as avatars too!

obviously the most excited about our new dreidel friends

Yes, the site will launch with the Bell Shop!

Feel free to ask more questions, happy to answer.

It's made of pixels and you'll get a peek at it in the first preview in the near future.

Will the introduction of 2.0 as well as nearly entirely overhauled code mean that old posts made "pre-2.0" are going to be deleted?

Posts will transfer over. The same goes for most everything on the site.

Have any accessibility/readability features been considered for 2.0?

I can't promise that we've considered all accessibility, but for example we have thought of those with screen readers in mind when building much of it.

If there's something specific that you'd like us to consider / test, please let me know!

That's really great to hear re: screen readers!

An issue I've had with ACC wrt readability would be how wide the posts are & text size. Zooming in helps some until the page no longer fits the screen and I have to scroll horizontally to read text (this is a screenshot w/ a 22" monitor). Personally speaking, my disabilities make this an issue in the way that I have to shift my visual attention. This makes it especially difficult for me to process threads with heavier text.  

If a font size feature is possible, it might be advisable to separate settings for board text, navigation text, etc. My impairment has to do with visual processing but not my vision, actually, so the simultaneous increase of navigation font size might make the UI feel a bit clumsy for me. On the other hand, I know people who might prefer board text to be smaller and narrow without making the UI tiny. Overall, for people with vision impairments in addition to myriad processing styles, customization on this front would be especially inclusive.

Of course, wide posts have allowed for things like unique markup art and minimizing vertical page stretching. So I guess there's a lot to consider in how old threads might translate to a new board layout, the ability to alter font size, or even just more intuitively-scaled magnification.

Here's an article I found with several examples of accessible design and a website with resources and basic checklists for accessible design. Not sure how it might complicate your coding progress, but I hope this helps. I appreciate your receptiveness!

Unlike ACC 1, ACC 2 is fully responsive, so you'll be able to zoom in and it will re-size to your screen, so you don't have to scroll horizontally to read the text.

Hopefully this will help, but if it doesn't, the development won't stop once ACC 2 is rolled out, and I'd be happy to work with you to figure out a solution.

Lovely, thanks for the information, Lauren!

I have another question that might segue into yet another accessibility question. Will regular users be able to embed images in their posts + profiles on 2.0?

That's still a bit up in the air, but I would imagine probably not due to the moderation concerns.

That's understandable. If it does come up, an alt text box could be something to consider. I know that's been recently implemented on Twitter, and images with alt text will have a little symbol that says ALT in a corner.
