    There's many other threads related to this here. Nothing is going to change until at least 2026/27 and quite possibly as late as 2029. No one knows the exact details yet other than what's in the "white paper." If/when the changes do take place then there will be more details until then please try to relax.
    I would appreciate it if members wouldn't tag me please. I have all notifcations turned off and wouldn't want a member thinking i'm being rude by not replying.
    If i see a question that i know the answer to i will try my best to help.
