We can only guess that the same procedure needs to be followed for the new directory and new calendar - that is the stake president for a new stake must submit a request to participate in the LUWS.
While this is true for Classic LUWS, our new stake did nothing to use the new lds.org calendar and directory. After the stake was created, CDOL was updated, we made sure all membership records were located in the correct units, and that MLS was changed on each unit admin computer to reflect the name of the new stake and not the old stake.
After that, everything from lds.org flowed normally as we would expect.
Many of our problems in accessing lds.org are related to individual computers and browsers, and not to any type of stake reorganization or division. I can access lds.org from one computer at home but not the other. I cannot access lds.org from my high powered computer at work, probably because it is behind a firewall that does not cooperate.
I access this forum using three different browsers. Each browser displays the forum differently, links are in different places, and I have to be very careful where I click. But they all work. I am not so fortunate when I need to access lds.org and obtain information from that site. It is a complex site and most of the computers I use choke on it.
LDSTools (iTouch version) has recently had problems accessing information at lds.org but a new release has just been made available at the iTunes store that seems to have fixed the most recent access problems.
