Create a unified profile system to use on Microsoft Answers, Tech community and Technet

There are Microsoft Technet forums, Answers and Tech Community



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.
