Expression Media won't be affected, but we want to make sure that everyone knows that the iView user forums are not going to be active after the end of this month. Our hosting contracts are expiring, but we are making plans to move the content to Microsoft servers. You will be able to search the content and pull out previous posts, but not post new questions or answers.
Other content from the servers will also be migrated, and we are migrating DNS mappings so that existing URLs continue to work.
Note: This is the iView forum, not the Expression Media forum. http://social.expression.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/media/threads/ will still be going strong. Any new forum topics should be opened on the Expression Media forum.
