MSDN and TechNet Search Feedback announcements
Some of you have been experiencing issues when searching some of our forums. This is a known issue and we are working to fix it. Read more about it here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/reportabug/threads/
We will update this announcement once the issues are resolved.
Hi - Welcome to our new Search Feedback forum for search on the MSDN, TechNet, and Expression websites, which are web front-ends built on top of the Live Search API to search the MSDN, TechNet, and Expression websites-- and associated technical content like the Support Knowledge Base (KB) as well as community content like Forums.
Our UI is optimized for the specific needs of technical professionals looking for technical info. Feel free to send us your suggestions, bug reports, gripes, thoughts, etc.
If you are filing a bug report with our site search, please include the following:
1. URL where the problem is happening
2. Specific search query you are using
3. Browser type and version you are using
4. If another search engine returns better results than ours, please include the URL for *that* search engine so we can compare.
This info will help us track down problems quicker.
NOTE: This forum is only for feedback about our site's search feature. If you have feedback about specfic Microsoft products or other parts of MSDN or TechNet besides search, please visit the MSDN Forums, TechNet Forums, or Expression Forums home pages to find the out the best place to send your feedback.
Thanks again for using our search and caring enough to send your feedback-- your suggestions and bug reports help us get better!
Also check out the MSDN & TechNet Search Blog at http://blogs.msdn.com/msdnsearchblog/ for the latest news and updates about our site search.
In the latest release for MSDN Search, we have retired the Search Code funtionality. We currently have a number of solutions including Library Code Examples and Samples, Galleries and Codeplex which allows our users to search and discover code. We are continuing to invest on a richer search experience as proven by the enhancements we have made to search results with added metadata such as ratings, downloads, clicks. Here are some examples:
Stay tuned for further improvements in MSDN Search in the coming year.

TechNet Website Feedback announcements
Hi all, just a quick post to let you know that this forum is all about the TechNet Website and TechNet Subscription Specifically! I'm primarily an expert in the TechNet Subscription but I should be able to track down answer for questions relating to the TechNet Website.
Also: for questions about specific content on specific TechNet Pages, we've built the "Site Feedback" feature into the bottom of every page, and you can click that link to give specific feedback on that page to the person who owns that page.
For questions on the TechNet Library content, the best way to give feedback on it is the "Click to Rate and Give Feedback" link on the upper right of most TechNet Library pages. This will get straight to the owner of that page.
This forum collects a lot of off topic posts from people who aren't sure where to post. If you're not sure where to post your question this is not the place to post. The right place is the "Where is the forum for...?" forum here: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/forums/en-us/whatforum/.
Off topic posts both take time to deal with and they clutter up the forum for others with legitimate TechNet questions, so if your post is not about TechNet, I will move it to the Off Topic Forum regardless of its topic.
Thanks and keep the questions coming!

If you're unsure which forum, a Bing search often works the fastest or ask here: http://social.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/whatforum/threads
