Default Reflection on the newsgroups and final farewell

Hi Robert,

I have briefly visited the site off and on throughout the past few weeks, but I admit I've
been procrastinating on really bothering with it since they just basically pulled the carpet
out from under us/me here on the newsgroup.

Although looking back on the history of Microsoft's forum attempts, the whole thing will be
recoded from scratch within a year and the current one will just fade into oblivion

For the past 6-8 months I've been using Google to look up my own posts here on the newsgroup
when I needed them. It's just faster than using your own local store and more convenient.
Same for MSDN and everything else

Have you tried using that yet? The only time that I'm going to be going there is when I
have something specific to say. It seems totally unusable for an answerer, someone who is
monitoring new questions and responding to them. Incredibly it has even less
functionality and worse search effectiveness than the old much despised WN3. (YMMV.)
OTOH the search on the new forums isn't anything to be excited about either IMO.
Fortunately Google is being allowed to index all the forums. ; ]


Good luck

Default Reflection on the newsgroups and final farewell

Thanks Jonathan you have been most helpful over the years both to myself and
countless others..

"Jonathan Kay [MVP]" wrote in message

Greetings,

On this eve of the end of these newsgroups, I thought I would do some
reflection on the newsgroups, myself and Messenger.

The first Messenger group was microsoft.public.windowsxp.messenger which
was intended for Windows Messenger in Windows XP (which at the time was
the same as MSN Messenger). When I arrived in the group in 2001, the only
one monitoring the posts was then NetMeeting MVP Brian Sullivan. I
quickly realized I was able to answer plenty of the questions asked and
moved in. A few years later Windows Messenger and MSN Messenger were
split into separate products and a microsoft.public.msn.messenger was
created for that new version of Messenger. Later on of course, MSN
Messenger was changed to Windows Live Messenger and the last and final
newsgroup microsoft.public.windows.live.messenger was born.

Unfortunately as the years have progressed, the newsgroups have had less
and less exposure and have all but been absent from Microsoft's official
support web pages. As a result, traffic has been slow compared to what it
used to be, but still steady for the past year or so.

For those who don't know, I have been a Microsoft MVP since 1998 and a
Messenger MVP since 2001. Interestingly, up until a year ago, I had a
perfect newsgroup record - that is, never missing a day of posts,
including weekends, holidays and small surgeries. As Microsoft's Netscan
service has been shut down for some time and Google and other web services
haven't processed the groups from the beginning, an exact post total isn't
available, but according to my Sent Items, I have posted around 50,000
posts in my 9 year messenger newsgroup career.

As for Messenger itself, the product remains the top instant messaging
client statistically, but some recent decisions both in the latest
iteration of the 2009 client and upcoming 2010 client have saddened me and
my impression of the product. Frankly Messenger has such potential to be
an amazing, indispensable, collaborative communication tool for work,
education and recreation. I do hope it reaches its true potential
someday.

Although I do wish that Microsoft would continue to delight us with their
own ideas, they really do need to listen to the feedback of their public
and Messenger community. This is an area that really needs improvement,
as situations such as the recent removal of Webcam really shows that
Microsoft doesn't grasp how their users actually use their product.
Additionally, there are plenty of features within the product that are in
dire need of updating, from message logging/history to the emoticon
picker.

As the full end of the Microsoft newsgroups draws nearer in the coming
months (the smaller groups like this one close sooner), it really is the
end of an era for me. As I first started frequenting the groups when I
was 14 (now 27, almost 28), losing the groups is like losing an old
friend. They will be missed.

So, anyone reading this, I bid you goodbye and wish you all the best. If
you need to contact me directly, my e-mail address attached to these posts
should continue to work, or you can head over to www.jonathankay.com or
www.messengergeek.com to find me. Please feel free to drop me a line and
say hello, I'd love to hear from you.

I was hoping to have some sort of alternative to the newsgroup by this
time, but there have only been a few weeks since the announcement of the
closure of the groups. The "new home" for Messenger support will be the
Windows Live Solution Center
(http://windowslivehelp.com/forums.aspx?productid=2), so I will be moving
there for the time being.

Finally, I'd like to thank those who supported and believed in me all
these years including Sherry Irwin, Corey Gouker, Dominic Hopton, Mark
Salloway, Jonathan Maltz, Tony Hynes, Jeri La May, Erwin Lips, John Furda,
Jeff Houston, Cyril Paciullo, Stephen Boots, Winston, Robear Dyer, any of
the other former and present MVPs I've missed, Menno, Mark Vos, and many,
many others.

Thanks for everything and see you on the flip side.

Farewell,

Thanks Doris,

Your comment here and the others really do help make it worthwhile.

I do wonder why this is still working though - perhaps they just forgot the Messenger groups
existed.
