Pinned topic developerWorks forum migrations - we will have a new home soon

‏2019-07-19T12:01:57Z |

Dear highly appreciated forum users,

I learned that IBM is currently undergoing efforts to unify user experience and reduce the places of where to find helpful content.

In particular, the dw forums like this our beloved DP forum are subject to be migrated into https://www.ibm.com/mysupport/s/forumshome soon.

Once I'm more clear on timelines, I shall let you know.

I just wanted to let you know this headsup in case you wonder of some redirect soon.

I can only cross-fingers that the search engines around manage to properly index our 12 years rich, super-valuable content and experience exchange and discussions here quickly.

And I hope links/formatting/attachment and alike do not get corrupted, as we saw with earlier engine migrations of this forum...

 

Beyond that, Hermann and I want to thank you for all your engagement in running this forum so actively. You have made it the most active forum in dw forum space. You all really make a difference and keep the fun up with DP!

 

I just received these statistics from Hermann:

    August had problems uploading the screenshot, so here it is.

    It is the delta of roughly 4 years since last web crawler run from November 2015 you can find at bottom of this pinned posting:
    https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/forums/html/topic?id=2e0fb79e-e2e2-44bb-bdec-c86b157856ec

    Basically you can see that DataPower forum had 2.4 times more postings than 2nd most active IBM forum, the WAS forum:

    This will be the new location of "DataPower forum" after migration will have completed (discussions still ongoing):
    https://www.ibm.com/mysupport/s/forumshome

    Opening initial page is slooooooow.

    But after selecting "DataPower" as product on the right it gets better.

    The content already present for "DataPower" is that of previous DataPower "dwAnswers".

    Changing title (might have --> will have) to reflect what is known today.

    There will be nothing to allow for what we have with pinned threads in this forum.

    It will look completely different.

    Hopefully the content will be available as needed ...
