There are Microsoft Technet forums, Answers and Tech Community

  1. https://social.technet.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/home
  2. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us
  3. https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/

 

of course the TechNet's educating contents are moving to Microsoft Docs but the forums still exist.

 

Why not bring all these 3 sites under 1 unified roof?

 

I have 2 ideas:

1. merge these 3 websites into one place to find answers. if I have a question, I don't know where to post, TechNet, Answers or Tech community. maybe all 3 places? then keep track of 3 websites to see which one gets an answer first? that's not convenient at all.

2. merge the user profiles of these 3 websites so a user will create only one profile and then he/she will be able to use it on all 3 websites.

I am going to leave this idea as new, I would love to bring the profiles of all of those - and many other Microsoft Site - into one mega profile. I think the advantage to users would be awesome both the users who's profile it is and the people looking for answers and experts.

As much as I love this idea, it's not currently planned so get it voted up and I will do all I can to keep advocating for profile merging.

@AllenThanks, well people only see these ideas and decide whether to upvote or not if they intentionally visit this part of the community.

It is still something I would love to do but it will require buy in from other teams within Microsoft and so this maybe sitting here for a little while, while I continue to make the case internally.
