Rename forums to be more descriptive RRS feed

  • Question

  • When a forum like the MSDN, TechNet, and Expression Profile Feedback forum and this very forum is full of off-topic threads, it may be better to give the forum a more descriptive name like "website account for MSDN, Technet and Expression"  or "Issues in using the forum platform"

  • Seriously, more than 9 out of 10 posts there are made by misled users.

    We have commented on this before.   I suspect the problem is the link(s) that bring them there.  That's where their expectations need to be set correctly first.   E.g. if they get there by reading a link that says something like "Give us your feedback."  with no other qualifying context, it would not be suprising that that is exactly what they do when they get there.
