  • Being too general means the bar of entry is lowered to a point where the questions do not relate to what the product team does and experts are leaving the forum. Currently there are all kinds of .Net Base Class Library/Windows Forms/ASP.Net/Silverlight/ADO.Net/LINQ questions there that should be moved out of the C# forum and into more knowledgeable hands in designated forums for those technologies. There is no way for me to keep up the traffic there and focus on what I can help. It is much easier to go elsewhere where I can have better use of my time.

    Imagine what a Microsoft Help MVP would feel when the MS Help forum got closed and the designated replacement forum, the Visual Studio General, has anything but MSHelp questions.  It is the same issue that caused the Visual Studio General forum to be closed 7 years ago

  • By asking the L2E experts at http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-US/adodotnetentityframework/threads/. Moderators should be moving your post if you asked.

    The amount of off-topic posts there are alarming, looks like there is little or no moderation there.

  • But was not my question more of a general question that C# experts should have helped? In any case, I got help I needed in a different forum. I'll post that answer in my thread.
