Google News Archive update
I don't like the looks of this. First Google abandoned the entire archiving project, began to strip out content from the archive, and then inch by inch over the past year or so reduced access to and search capabilities of the content that remains. Then they posted instructions that don't work in their Help Center article.
The newspaper archive is static, non-revenue content to serve up at a cost. Why on Google Earth would they allocate precious engineering resources to build a new system for it?
Hate to say it, but I'd start saving up for the paid archive subscriptions, my friends.

I second all of the above requests for restoring the newspaper archive search from pre-2011, including source, timeline, date, keyword etc search across all newspapers within the archive. As mentioned elsewhere the changes were totally unasked-for and against Google's own principle #1. Since no Google exec ever commented on that issue in years, one can only assume the truth is there a conflicts with paid services like Proquest, Newspaperarchive.com or publishers and as a consequence you made access worse/impossible to not violate other principles.

Member levels indicate a user's level of participation in a forum. The greater the participation, the higher the level. Everyone starts at level 1 and can rise to level 10. These activities can increase your level in a forum:
- Post an answer.
- Having your answer selected as the best answer.
- Having your post rated as helpful.
- Vote up a post.
- Correctly mark a topic or post as abuse.
Having a post marked and removed as abuse will slow a user's advance in levels.
