Sounds good. I'll file bugs for:

* Moving Global Nav link from talk.webplatform.org/forums/ to
* Update forums to remove sign-in pod, if easy, and add a note that says
something like:

Forums are currently closed as we continue to develop the site. In the
interim, please communicate with us with IRC or email
<https://talk.webplatform.org>. Thank you for your patience.

* Remove reference to forums, throughout, especially on:
talk.webplatform.org page, Ed Guide, and getting started.
