Why was my thread moved to Off-Topic? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Oracle with ODBC was the topic. I used a kludge-workaround for the time being, but i really need an answer. Please move the thread back to where it can get answered.

    Thanks,


    Jon Jacobs

  • Jon it looks like Sheng Jiang  helped you out. So he took care of this problem (thanks Sheng!).  Jon has since marked Sheng's reply as the answer.
     
    The direct answer was that the C# Forum Moderator, Jackie-Sun, thought it was more of a .NET or Oracle issue. Very debatable, and if your question wasn't answered, I'd try moving it back to another Forum. Regardless, your question was answered, so this issue is solved.
    I also moved the thread to Transact-SQL (per a converation with Naomi here: http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/Profile/thread/7cdc3396-a705-4186-837f-a8a6e195b726/). So hopefully more people can read it there.

  • Took me a while to find the thread I probably thought of in regards to this question

    http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/transactsql/thread/555179f8-33aa-4633-902c-28c87b2dda6f/#ab65529c-2c1e-4cc9-87d5-42233bc6b8bb

    The answer is the same as by Sheng.

  • BTW, how did you look for posts by a user? Say, I spent a couple of minutes checking in the profile Activity of the particular user. I knew he answered a question recently, but trying to find a topic from Activities page is not simple. May be there should be a way from the user's profile to simply see all messages by that user.

    Feature doesn't exist. Should we add it to the Wiki article?

    Thanks!

  • Yes, please do if it's not in the suggestions already. Also the ability to view posts by a user in a particular forum and also with a filter to see answers only.

    Click on user name to see profile > Click on Activity tab > Select Forums from drop down list > Click on [ View all Forum threads ]

    A lengthy process but there none the less...

    Of course, an "Advanced Search" page (that has been requested numerous times) would fix this and several other feature requests all at once. Silly to have tons of different "Views" of the same data.

    There is, at least for recent messages:  use the Activities tab's RSS feed and filter by whatever criteria you want, e.g. Oracle in this case.   If the default for unsubscribed feeds was bigger the extent of the result would be correspondingly better.

    Oh.   This is an exception because it has been moved around.   However, even so you can tell that it started in a Visual C# forum.   Also, the topic stayed the same.  Sometimes however, I suppose a topic can get lost by merging.

    Do you have another example where you thought that the topic was hard to find?

    Does Google Chrome not provide a filter for its RSS feeds?...  ; )

    WTH?   Do I need some kind of add-on to do that?   (no formatting at all?)

    Try it with IE?   <EG>
