We recently made a decision to close down the software testing discussion forum on MSDN. It was fun while it lasted, but frankly, the questions were drifting away from testing, and we weren’t doing a great job at all getting answers for people quickly. The forum is archived here, for continued browsing (and availability to search engines).

The good news is that there are many other great Q&A sites for software testing available for your testing questions. Two of my favorites are:

I’d also like to put in a plug for the soon to go live Stack Exchange software testing question and answer site. I’m a huge of the Stack Exchange technology and think this site will be a great place to ask (and answer!) questions about software testing and test tools. Current information on the site is here (I’ll post a link to the real site when it’s available).

Also – please keep in mind that questions about Microsoft’s own testing technologies are always welcome on some of these other forums:

Thanks for your support of the forums up to this point. Please continue to ask questions, and provide feedback to the forums through this blog. We’d love to hear from you.
