Community News (week #46 2011 | Nov 18th - 24th)

Community Manager Emeritus

Welcome to the third issue of our "Community News". These news reports give you an overview of what has happened in our community in the past week. I am looking forward to hear how you like these and what additional topics you like to see covered here.


Community chitchat


The big news in the beginning of last week was the crash on sign in problems for some of our Windows users which brought quite an increase in visitors to our community. We also asked for help in pinpointing the cause for this crash by supplying logs. Some users  shared this information and helped our development team to get it resolved. Thanks a lot for that.


Thread of The Week


Here's a little overlap with the Member of the Week (see below) but this brilliant thread is just to valuable to leave it unmentioned. Take a look at the "Skype technical errors Megathread" with a detailed description of Windows tech problems and their solutions. Epic.


Post highlight


A very good explanation on how to start a new thread by Power User Primemover: Help Us To Help You! (How to Start a New Thread).


Member of The Week


This week's highlighted member is NoxxeR who just signed up a week ago and brought new input to the Windows boards. His highlight is the "Skype technical errors Megathread" where he explains the most common problems and their solutions all in one condensed thread. Great stuff, thanks for that NoxxeR also on behalf of all the users you could help with answers to their questions.


And by the way: If you come accross any message you find helpful, funny, offering a solution or all of it at the same time: Please click on the "Kudo +1" button below the message to show your appreciation.
