Nancy, they've been gone for months and months. How does a 3-week-old user get to be "in stage 1"?
Did you guys remove the stages but not the trigger that makes a new user start stage 1? Does that need looking into?
New users should not be aware of the stages at all or know about them, unless they stumble across that page. Since they're not offered any more as a feature.
