  • It involves passing specific parameters to the search app (i.e.: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Search/en-US/) then from our search passing other params/refinements to bing. My Threads contains threads from any Forum that you've participated from any brand. Meaning, there's no target params/refinement ID's to query all of these forums across brands.

    However, This is a good suggestion. I encourage you to submit the same thread in the suggestions and feedback forum for us to review.

    Thanks.

  • Unfortunately no. Currently by design. We use Bing to service our search and currently scoped only to "All <brand> Forums". Brand being Msdn, Technet, Expression, Microsoft and Answers.

    Thanks.

  • This is not good. Why on earth "by design"?
