  • Hello Kate,

    Thanks for above information.

    Will existing points and reputation I've earned in current forums (Technet) will be transferred to Q&A now or some time in future?

    Regards.

  • Hi Kapil, 

    Thanks for asking this. As I known, currently the feature is still in development during preview, MVP title would be kept, but points not, since these are two different platform. 

    Thanks for your understanding, I will keep my eyes on new feature release, and let you know once done.

  • First complaint, again with the round avatar frames. Terrible.

    I was initially able to go there and set my avatar, but once I signed in I am constantly stuck in a sign-in/redirect loop. Network monitor shows it just constantly downloading the favicon and reloading the page. I've already whitelisted static.docs.com just in case. The link that has the loop is this one: https://docs.microsoft.com/_themes/docs.theme/master/en-us/_themes/global/external-sign-in.html?redirectUrl=https%3A%2F%2Fdocs.microsoft.com%2Fanswers

  • Hi Tripredacus, 

    Well noted this issue and thanks for your feedback. 

    Please see my update for the workaround, and let me know if it also works for you. 

    Since the platform is still in Preview version, the feedback is very useful for us to get it improved.

  • Additional feedback on the Preview (not sure where to put it)

    1. Default list view of topics shows a green "answers" icon on each thread, but they are not answers. They are replies. It gives the false impression that the question has been answered, that a solution to the question can be found inside. Answers icon should only be green if an actual answer can be found inside.

    2. Entering a thread from one of the tagged categories, then replying, the page reloads to the main forum, not the tagged forum.

    For example starting here:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/answers/topics/windows-10-setup.html

    and replying to a post, instead of reloading the thread to see your reply, or going back to the tagged section you started from, you end up here:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/answers/index.html
