Answerer Rights on SharePoint forums not migrated RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi team,

    I see that there's been some work on centralising the SharePoint forums, which has resulted in the old ones being locked.

    I've checked to see if my Answerer rights hve been transfered and this doesn't appear to have been the case.  I had these on the legacy SharePoint forums and the 2010, NOT 2013.

    If possible, can I have these returned?  I spent a lot of time going through and marking answers up, so I'd like to continue this volunteer work if possible.  Other Answerers that may have also been affected are: -

    1. Christ Gis (MVP)
    2. Ivan van Dyke (MVP)

    Many thanks,

  • HI Steven !

    New request needs to be submitted for Answerer / Moderator role depending on the need of Moderator / Answerer. These rights don't transfer by default. There might be already Moderator / Answerer available in SharePoint 2012 Forums.

    Please let me know if this doesn’t work for you. Hope I have answered you correctly.

    Thanks, Hasham Niaz

  • Hi Hasham,

    I already have a month old moderation request in, which I appreciate takes time.  Asking the above is more about helping out on the forrums as I did before.

  • Hi Steven !

    Ed is currently going with the following list;

    There are already some Active requests pending since February 2012. The nomination process usually takes a time as Ed has to communicate with other Moderators / Administrators and build the case on individual basis.

    We really appreciate the time spent to help out the community in the form of Forum Administration / Moderation.

    Hopefully Ed, will add this to your previous request.

    Thanks, Hasham Niaz

  • Hi Ed,

    I think Chris has them on SharePoint 2010 general Q&A (old), whereas Ivan had then on the SharePoint 2007 version of that forum.
