  • Question

  • Hello,

    I posted a question in the C# forum as it related to an issue I have using azure blob storage from a C# application. 

    I would say the question is 75% C# and 25% Azure Storage, however some "helpful" person has move it to a forum that does not get replies and in my opinion is not the correct forum. 

    There's seems no way of contacting this person to get it moved back. Can anyone tell me how I can get this moved back? 

    This is the thread.

  • The quickest thing you can do is to re-ask your question in desired forum but as Sam mentioned depending on how you word the question it could get moved again.

  • Only a moderator in that forum can move it. https://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/azure/en-US/home?forum=windowsazuredata

    Sometimes marking it Off topic with a note about request for move will work but the simplest method may be to just create a new thread (copy / paste) in desired target forum.

  • Hello, 

    Is there any way to contact the moderator? My original post is urgent and time critical and yet has been swept to the side without any chance for me to influence the decision.  

    I fully support the right for mods to move (& delete) stuff but the original poster should be able to challenge the decision. This has caused me a big problem. 

    Rant over :-)

    You can try marking as suggested or also posting another reply to your thread asking for moderator help but other than that there's no messaging system.

    My original post is urgent and time critical and yet has been swept to the side without any chance for me to influence the decision.

    I'd start a new thread in desired forum. Also note these are peer support forums so urgent response should not be expected.

     Also depending on your partner level you may have other options

  • That other question is not a C# language question. It asks about classes such as the CloudStorageAccount Class (Microsoft.WindowsAzure.Storage) which is not in the C# language. If you post the question in the C# forum then it will probably be moved; it should be. The question should be in the forum that the question is most likely to be seen by the specialists most likely to be able to help. The C# forum is seen by many developers but it is not likely to be looked at by more Azure specialists than the Azure forum.

  • The issue I am having is in a C# program which uses these Azure storage classes which are part of the .net framework.  It could be argued that my question straddles both C# and Azure storage, problem is there appears to be nobody in the Azure storage forum who can answer questions that pertain to C#. 

    My fully worked example was in C# so I really fail to see why this is 100% Azure Storage.  

    24hrs later and I still have no answer because some moderator has been a bit trigger happy with a thread that is clearly a C# question.

  • well think this way, if you as a vb developer have the same issue, by your logic, it becomes a vb question.

    If a question can be tagged with any language, then it should be tagged with no language, because changing the language doesn't change the question. 

    Posting an Azure storage question in a C# forum is like asking a math question (happens to be described in English) to an English forum. Yes you use the same language to describe things. No that won't be the best use of everyone's time. 

    Besides if you got an answer in VB.Net or C++/CLI it would be trivial to machine translate the result to C#.
