Library Community Content in Profile RRS feed

  • Question

  • What is this?  Is this supposed to list the users MSDN Library Community Content contributions made under the same Live ID?

    If it's supposed to be working, it's not; it lists none of my 60 or so blocks I've created/edited.

    Cheers -- Peter

  • Peter, we have the root issue resolved in the live environment now, but your contributions aren't showing up yet because your library and forums profiles haven't been synched yet. You can either wait until we turn that synch logic on (should be tomorrow) and see if that works for you, or you can manually synch the two display names. If you go here http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/user-peter+ritchie+-+mvp.aspx and sign in, you should be able to change your display name to match the one you use in forums (just "Peter Ritchie" without the "- MVP"). Then they'll be synched and the contributions will be pulled into the profile.

    Now, your concern will be that your display name in the wiki will no longer show that you're an MVP, and that would be true. All I can tell you there is that we are planning to make the library profile system show your MVP status in the same way that the forums profile system does so that it won't be on the "honor system" anymore. I can't commit to that will happen yet, but there it is...

  • Hi Chris.  I'm seeing some disparate results in the Community Content tab.  In my profile I see only 5 entries for community content authored by me.  (""Exception" not accurate", "operation failed", "operation failed", "Caching, ListViewItem.Selected, ListViewItem.Checked, et al.", and "Cannot be used for "almost equality" testing".  I have 56 blocks created and 59 blocks edited.  If I look at my Recent Activity on the community content site (http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/user-peter%20ritchie.aspx) it shows 5 entries at a time; but it's a different list of 5 than shown on the MSDN Forums list.
