I have worked with Microsoft Communities for quite some time now and it looks like things are about to expand

Product marketing site: http://www.microsoft.com/communities/default.mspx
Frequently asked questions: http://www.microsoft.com/beta/betafaq.mspx
Help Build Microsoft Community Applications & Services: http://www.microsoft.com/beta/helpbuildit.mspx

As someone who never got into using newsgroups this is the ideal replacement for me and I am looking forward to seeing how this all turns out.

MS are basically replacing all their Community server stuff it seems, ms do alot of blogging these days so I guess they wanted their own software.

That is quite interesting. Should be a difficult rollout considering how many blogs and different forums they have.

They're okay for a beta, but they all seem to be seriously lacking the kind of polish you would expect from a professional design and dev team at this point.

And most of the pages are pretty broken in Firefox at the moment, which is never a good thing. Actually, I'm getting an error message in IE - "There is a problem with the application. We apologize for the inconvenience. Please try again later" - so maybe things are still being rolled out.

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
