Last Edited: 4/6/2007 [I'll be amending the lists in this post based on the comments and continual feedback that comes in. Thanks for hanging with me here.]
We've recently released a service pack for the forums that have changed some functionality in the forums. It's the first batch of noticeable, user-facing changes in the forums in over a year, so it's not surprising that some of the changes have caused some problems. These problems, however annoying, have also spurred some very interesting threads in the MSDN Moderators Forum, a private forum that's the "coffee lounge" for our community moderators to hang out and discuss issues in the forums.
I thought it might be interesting to summarize some of the discussion here and see if we can spur some more constructive input. I'm going to summarize what I've been hearing into three sections. For the "bad" and "ideas" categories, I'm going to try and break them out into individual blog entries.
Let's talk and make a list. What's good/bad/or just a good idea?
