I believe I used to be an Answerer in this forum, but I don't seem to have that status anymore RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Just curious - I think I used to have Editor's (Answerer's) rights in this forum, but right now I seem to be a regular user here. Do you know what could have changed?

    Thanks.

  • Hi Naomi,

    I'd reach out to Ed and see if he can shed any light. I doubt anyone who frequents this forum will have an answer for you.

  • Thanks, I sent a PM in Skype to Ed, but as I understood, he is very busy now, so I don't expect immediate response.

  • BTW, I think some view contained all forums I currently moderate. Do you know which view it is? I've checked 'My Forums' but don't see that info there.

  • Yeah, it should be the 'My Forums' view. There's a section at the bottom for 'Forums I moderate'.

  • Apparently this view exists in TechNet but not in MSDN

    https://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/sqlserver/en-US/user/forums

    I thought I had more than 11 forums, but this only shows 11. I guess I should be OK with that :)

  • Hmm, that's odd then. I can see my lone forum (11? That's gotta be a whole ton of moderation work...) when I look at the MSDN branding:

  • My fault, actually. I scrolled down and it is there. I didn't see it before, may be didn't scroll enough.

  • Except for the answer on my original question - the topic of this thread. Can you please clarify why did I miss the Editor's status of that forum?

    Thanks.

    Ah yes. That would be because the Answerers/Editors and Moderators of a forum are the ones who resolve the questions. You were asking more questions than helping resolve them. This made Microsoft folks feel like you shouldn't be an Answerer in this forum. For example, if you were an Answerer in a SQL Server forum, and you were actually asking more questions than answering questions, then people would question whether or not you have the expertise to be an Answerer.

    Also note that this forum isn't really monitored by the profile team, and isn't really for support, bug reports, or feature requests (just like the SQL Server forum isn't for any of those things). So we mostly just end up sending people here to the "fissues" email as one of the support channels. There's very little about troubleshooting the profiles that you don't already know (there's almost nothing to them). And troubleshooting the profiles (or answering questions about them), is all this forum is for. It's not for support, bugs, feature requests, or anything like that.

  • Actually, I am moderator in this forum (and this is fine and I want to stay this way). My original thread was in "Forum's Feedback" forum where I used to be an Editor (and Dave moved that thread). So I do want to keep my Editor's status in that forum too (or even become a Moderator in that forum). 

    Thanks in advance.

    Actually, I think I am incorrect - I am not a moderator here either. Hmm, I don't remember if I ever was a moderator in this forum or not. I guess I want to be moderator here and there.

    Thanks.
