File Services and Storage TechNet Forums just got a facelift!

Since Windows Server 2008 Beta stages, our team has been supporting TechNet forums. Today, TechNet/MSDN is releasing a new community platform, with more functionalities and renewed interface. Not all forums are in the new platform yet – we were lucky to get into the first migration wave.


If you are a Storage Forum user, you’ll notice some changes:


·         Our Forum will not be a “Windows Server 2008” forum anymore – it’s Windows Server, period. Customers from all Server versions are welcome to post.

·         Heavy forum users – like people from Product Team or Storage MVPs – will like the fact that we can now copy and paste code without having certain symbols turning into smileys J

·         A new lighter weight editor was added to reduce the time it takes to create or reply to a post.

·         One of the coolest features is a quick filter called “Unread”, which displays all threads with new posts since the last time you visited the forums

·         The ability to expand and collapse forum category headers was also added – one less click to read the threads.

This is the new link:


And last – but not least – this is how it looks like:



Enjoy the new Forums! Happy posting!

  • I have been looking for the REAL  [b]Uncensored Community[/b] to join and be able to speak my mind without [b]repercussions[/b], share couple of dirty jokes, or maybe even get involved in unbent political discussion.

    After many, many attempts I had to give up, as majority of sites have strict rules that you have to obey, or you will get "[b]banned[/b]" and those rules are usually made up by some geek who hasn't seen the world or is too scared to be challenged in a real discussion.

    Other sites advertise to be "[b]uncensored[/b]" but as soon as you post something [b]controversial[/b] your post is deleted without explanation or warning within hours-days.

    I got really tired of all this BS and so I said to myself:

    Why not create your own site where everyone can speak their mind, regardless of the points of view they have without fear, where people can actually choose ANY topic and discuss it. Where you can truly post [b]anonymously[/b], be that replying to a specific topic or even post a new one.

    I am not going to post a link here, I challenge you to visit Google or Yahoo or MSN or even Altavista  and search for : "[b]Off-Topic Community[/b]"   the first listing would be our site.

    So join the thousands of people, tired of rules and repercussions and enjoy your Internet experience for a change.
