If you had a model that was in a category that is no longer available, don't fret. We'll make sure it is associated with the most relevant category. Below is a list of the previous categories and the new category they are moving in to. Take a look at our migrations:

If you had Seasonal selected as a category, please note that those categories have been removed from the category selection. To make sure your models are still easily discovered on Shapeways, please be sure to edit your model and select an appropriate category. Remember, you can still tag your model with an appropriate seasonal tag!

If you have any feedback you'd like to send our way do so in the New Categories thread in the Bug Reporting & Site Feedback forum: http://www.shapeways.com/forum/index.php?t=msg&th=9120&a mp;start=0&
