The mission of this online community is to provide a platform for IT Pros, Developers, Office 365 and Azure Users, cloud fans and Microsoft to interact. It is a central destination for education and thought leadership on best practices, product news, live events, and roadmap. Get started by signing in. You'll need a Microsoft email to register (@outlook, @hotmail, @live, etc.)
You will notice that some community members have colored rings around their avatars. This means they were awarded a specific badge. Here is a breakdown of each badging ring:
Microsoft employees - Like you, they are members of the community around Microsoft products, and we encourage them to share their knowledge, expertise, and opinions on this platform.
Community Managers - Our community managers are here to encourage conversation, provide direction, answer questions, and keep the community healthy.
MVPs - MVPs are recognized technology experts who passionately share their knowledge and expertise with the community.
Similarly, you may notice badges and ranks next to usernames. Badges are achievements you can unlock. Ranks, like “MVP”, can either be assigned or earned through participation.

Thanks for joining the Microsoft Tech Community. Learn more about how to Get Started.
Hi @Sergei Baklan - thanks for highlighting this and we will work to clarify what we mean by support in our documentation. The best place to get Microsoft support is answers.microsoft.com. The Tech Community is a valuable resource for the community to share best practices and discuss Microsoft products and services. Members of this community may offer you recommendations and suggestions based on what they've seen and experienced but it does not replace official Microsoft support.
This week Microsoft announced the rollout of a new personlized search experience in Office 365 and Delve and a new Yammer desktop app coming soon. We are also excited to announced a Skype for Business on Mac AMA! We hope you join us on Thursday, February 23 at 9am PST.

View the Weekly Roundup for the week of February 13, 2017 - February 17, 2017 in a Sway and attached Word Document in the Weekly Roundup group.
We could use a community dedicated to patch management where all things patches are discussed or reported.
FYI - February 2017 patches have been delayed to March 14 - See blog post:
UPDATE: 2/15/17: We will deliver updates as part of the planned March Update Tuesday, March 14, 2017.
Our top priority is to provide the best possible experience for customers in maintaining and protecting their systems. This month, we discovered a last minute issue that could impact some customers and was not resolved in time for our planned updates today.
After considering all options, we made the decision to delay this month’s updates. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by this change to the existing plan.
The community will soon pass the 40,000 members line. They all like each other. In one place. Please explore the 'Likes Given To' network of the top contributors in the tech community. Much more easier to generate when MS open the Lithium REST API.
