I wanted to let you know that we have fixed an issue where community notifications where being marked as spam incorrectly. This change has meant we needed to change the address community notifications are coming from. The new address is If you have rules setup against this you will need to update it.


What are Notifications & how can I manage them?

The community will notify you via email for any discussions you have subscribed to or replied to when an event such as a reply, a like or a best answer is marked on that discussion. How often you get these notification emails and the level of detail is configurable in the My Subscriptions settings. Alternatively, if you wish to unsubscribe to a discussion or the entire community you can do this here as well.


We hope you find the options for notifications powerful and we recommend taking a few minutes to customize yours to suit your needs. If you have any suggestions for things you would like to see in notifications or things you do not like, please comment below or submit your idea to the community ideas board.

90K is great, community is growing fast. And here is my updated activity stat

Congrats to the Tech Community for reaching another milestone.  This one is special for me as I believe we've overtaken the old Office 365 Network now.  My recollection was their membership being in the 80's thousand membership range at most.




Let's guess when the 100,000 mark will be reached, I'm going for 27th November (I wouldn't be surprised if it's earlier though)!

Yes, it was about 80K by the end. Microsoft knows better, my stats like this




Woohoo! We've been hard at work to get more and more product teams to come to the Tech Community, and with events like Microsoft Ignite and the Microsoft Tech Summits landing on-demand content here it's helping us continue to grow. We've got lots of big plans for this community, we're really excited to see you all here!


Nice to see @Sergei Baklan is as geeked on the data as I am :)

@Cian Allner that's a bold prediction, keep in mind a lot of our traffic is in North America which has a bit of a turkey hangover at that time aka Thanksgiving. I would love to see us reach 100k by New Year's Eve!

I didn't really take that into account @Anna Chu but I am confident if it's not around then, it will be soon after.  There have already been 500 signups since, which is great!
