  • Unlike Microsoft's 'old' newsgroups these new forums are not available through NNTP but they are available through RSS (just click on the RSS orange icon to the right of the forum name).

    These new forums also offer authenticated posters to reduce spam, ability to tag posts, subscribe to alerts for updated threads and the ability to earn points for public recognition (the medals underneath your name). Your forum profile works across all the forums for Microsoft Learning, MSDN, TechNet and Expressions.

    For people that are very helpful in answering questions in the forums we have the ability to make them official moderators which includes the ability to mark posts to questions as approved answers.

    Sincerely,
    Ben
