Updates to Autodesk Discussion Groups

On June 4, Autodesk is upgrading the technology behind our discussion groups. The result is a significant improvement to posting & replying, navigation, search and other features. While we launch this upgrade, the discussion groups will be unavailable from 3pm (PDT) Thursday, June 3 and Friday June 4.

As part of the upgrade, Autodesk has taken the decision to discontinue the time-honored use of the Network News Transfer Protocol (NNTP). This was a difficult and bittersweet decision, given the company’s past investments to maintain NNTP, but one necessary to continue providing the state-of-art web experience Autodesk customers have come to expect. For active NNTP users, we know this will change your workflow when using the forums. To help transition to the web-based forums, the new updates include a simpler, more intuitive interface to post and reply, bookmarking and e-mail notification features to track favorite posts, and more powerful search tools. While not a substitute for the NNTP experience, the streamlined capabilities of our RSS feeds also provide an enhanced and alternative offline forum reading experience.

Autodesk is excited about this change, and is confident that all the valued users of our discussion groups will quickly appreciate and benefit from the improvements to this web experience.

Eric,

 

I don't suppose there is a way we can merge our web login with the profiles we've posted under with the NNTP in the past?

 

 

 

My web login:

Wanderer-MOTD - http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/58358

 

My nntp logins (obviously I've got a lot more posts here... 880 posts versus 80 ;-p):

Melanie Stone - http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/651858

Wanderer - http://forums.autodesk.com/t5/user/viewprofilepage/user-id/644095

 

Thanks for any info.

 

Cheers!

Melanie Perry
