    Is the editor of 1K Only Mr. or Ms. Lonely? I decided to post the most "recent" headlines after a contributor to this thread interpreted the first headline below as referring to SWUs earned in 2011 rather than in 2010. 1K Only is UA's own virtual Wayback Machine. See what "hot" news flashes all you non-1Ks are missing out on? :D

    Seriously, if their best effort results in members innocently misreading policy announcements that are one or two years out of date, why bother? :rolleyes:

    It's UA's one time capsule. Years from now, we can go back to the 1K site and reminisce.

    "You remember the days before United merged and became Continental?"
    or respond to a new poster asking "What's a 500-mile upgrade?" :D

    On the one hand, I can see that with limited resources this wasn't a priority and got de-staffed. On the other hand, they should put it out to pasture...

    If they are not going to update the 1K Only Website at least scrap what they have now and post coming soon... Having nothing there looks much better than having the dated material that is on there now.

    I think that you are having an acid flashback. This is just too bizarre.

    Agreed... they need to take the damn thing down... it's embarrassing. I posted a story to this effect on my blog and tweeted it directly to United, with little effect.
