Profile Site Update - September 29th RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • Well it's that time of the month and we are dropping a new update to the profile page later this afternoon. You'll definitely notice the changes.

    1. A new experience Tab. This contains your achievement information and now your statistics. What's statistics you ask? It's a count of activities or points, broken up by applications across our MSDN/TN/Expression network. You'll see stats like gallery contributions, forum replies, comments on a blog etc. This is just the first release of it and we are working on adding charts and interactive elements to statistics over the coming months. Localized titles for statistics are coming in the next few weeks.

    2. A new activity Tab. This contains your activity feed. It's back to using the browser scrollbar instead of in a limited size window. You'll see the filter has changed (we got rid of the custom one that had issues) and officially includes Achievements in the filters. It's still content aware so if you only have forms and gallery activities, that's what you'll see in the filter.

    3. Better localization. We will have localized application names in both the activity feed and filter by end of day.

    There are other little things here and there (like I can manually award achievements for those waiting on the Forum Answerer II++ achievement bug fix) so get discussing and give us your feedback so we can incorporate it into our planning for the future.

  • Did the Forums Answerer achievement bug also affect Code Answerer?


    Edit: I'm liking the new changes!  I already updated the TechNet Wiki Feature Request page with a couple more requests.

  • On the Code Answerer question: Nope. Different activities.

    Glad you're liking the changes. :)

  • Please switch the order of the Tabs so Activities tab will be the first to show and does not require an extra click. Also, these stats are not clear to me - say, how can I know how many posts are with code and how many are total answers (with and without code)?

    Also, for each of the numbers I'd like to have a link so I can directly go to my answers, my helpful posts, the blogs I commented, etc.

  • Due to the bug that is also affecting Forum Answerer achievements, we don't yet have answers as a statistic on your profile. Once that's fixed at the end of October, we are looking at adding answers, code answers, quick answers etc. to the statistics section.

    The links to the associated activities is a great idea. I'll add it to the backlog for a future release.
