You won’t notice very much difference since it is pretty much a direct replacement of the SOTA Website summit pages, association/region/summits lists, etc.
However, what it will mean is that there will no longer be a need to login to the SOTA Website which is now one less login to worry about. The new summits site uses the SOTA Single Sign On server shared with SOTAwatch3, the mapping site and the new database site.
As an aside, I would encourage people to switch across to SOTAwatch3 and let me know if you run into any issues on SW3 or the new Summits site.
Further, if any providers of any third party software still use Spotlite, the old RSS feed or screenscrape SOTAwatch2, or still use version 1 of the API and you haven’t already been in touch with me, please PM me so we can discuss helping you move to more up-to-date and currently maintained resources.
Thanks for the information Jon. I am using SOTAWatch 3 now. I noticed one thing missing from the summits pages when I view them. The summit pages indicate the number of times I have chased the summit but fail to indicate if I have activated the summit, which the old summits pages did. Not sure if this is an intentional omission or not.
However, I have just noticed this for MW-013 :-

Vicki and I both activated but my entry is missing from the last 5 although correct in my personal list. Perhaps it has scrolled off because the entries for BWA and RYR are not in order.
The last five appear to be disordered generally :-
Latest for MW-002
I thought I ought to be missing from the last five on MW-013 once I saw the dates out of order so I added MW-002 to clarify. This now looks fine.
Thanks again. I hope all the migrations go OK and don’t end up giving you yet more work to do for us all.
