And we’re back… Move delayed but still coming. (Updated Thursday, Jan.16)

Hi.

 

Our apologies for the long absence. We have been working hard to complete the transition to our new community home. Unfortunately, our first attempt was not successful, and we’re back on our old platform.

 

We are going to regroup and try again, but probably not for a few weeks. We will let you know here when we’re ready to try again. In the meantime, please resume posting! We’ve missed you and we’re eager to hear from you.

 

Again, so sorry for the interruption. Thanks for your patience!

 

Regards,

Matt, Andy, Tom, Miguel, Juraj, Serene and Alicja

Hello again.

 

As explained below, we are preparing our move to a new forums platform -- and the move starts today! At 17:00 UTC this community will go into "read-only" mode. You will not be able to post anything on the site, though you will be able to navigate and read posts.

 

Our goal is to reopen on our new platform on Friday, Jan. 10. If we find that we're not ready to do so, this site will reopen and we will make the move later, likely in February. Wish us luck!

 

Over the next few days, if you have issues, problems or questions that just can't wait, we do have an option for you.

  • Please use this form (Form temporarily turned off) to submit a question or issues that are urgent. We will do our best to respond to you via email during that time. We are working to get the form up in all of our supported languages, but they may not all be there immediately. 
  • We may also send outbound emails to respond to community posts that have not yet received a response or are not yet resolved.

Thank you for your continued membership, support and engagement. See you on the other side!

 

Best regards,


Matt, Andy, Tom, Miguel, Juraj, Serene and Alicja

We’re Moving!

In the near future, our Lenovo and Motorola forums will move to a new platform. We are working to make the transition smooth and easy, but a move this size is tricky. Here’s what we expect, what we don’t expect – and what’s still unknown.

 

First, you should find the new site very similar to the current one.

  • You will use the same login information, and have the same username, avatar, etc.
  • The site will look a bit different, but should not be missing any significant features.
  • All the content in our interactive communities will move to the new site.

We’ve slated a few items for “Phase 2” of the move, including finalization and improvements to the Knowledgebase. We also have some improvements for the community that we hope to introduce in the future.

 

The transition itself is going to be the greatest challenge. Here are the key items to know.

  • We will put the current site into “read only” mode at some point. During this period you will not be able to post or reply on the site, but only see the content. This is necessary as we make the final move of content to the new platform.
  • We will do our best to give you at least a couple days’ notice before we go “Read Only,” if we can.
  • The forums will close for, at minimum, three days. Our goal is to keep this time as short as possible.
  • However, there are some unknowns about this final move process. It may take longer than we hope, and if this is the case, we will rely on your patience and understanding.

While the forums are closed, we invite you to send your urgent support issues to us via email (address to follow), and we will do our best to respond. Please do not send us questions about the move itself and instead send your technical support questions. If you can wait until we reopen forums, all the better!


We honestly believe that our online communities are unique in the detail, timeliness, and relevance of the feedback we get. Your membership and participation are truly valued and appreciated. Thanks for being forum members, and thanks for your support as we make this move.


Best regards,


Matt, Andy, Tom, Miguel, Juraj, Serene and Alicja

Hi.

 

There is no relation between the two things. (Android coders don't write community software.)

 

Please don't post off-topic.

 

Thanks,

Re: And we’re back… Move delayed but still coming. (Updated Thursday, Jan.16)

Hey Matt, I'm a newb to these forums though I've lurked a bit since the latter part of last year.

I created my account so I could post to another thread, but I'm stopping off here first to leave a comment.

 

Can you people JUST, PLEASE, FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS GOOD AND PURE IN TECH, follow the RFC for allowable email address characters.

And before I continue on, I want to be clear by saying not "you" specifically, but whomever controls the primary account creation/setup part of the site (unless that would also be you).

It's just maddening that I come across so many companies (not an exageration by any means) that do not.

And it makes it even worse when they have disparate systems where one follows the rule, but others don't.

I stopped sign-ups for that reason as well as stopped using services as well because of the problem.

 

I also want to be clear that the forum (yes, I know you're changing systems according to this thread), is NOT a problem, at least with regard to my email address specifically.

 

When I started to sign up, I guess you end up creating a primary lenovo account, and the forum ends up being a sub of that primary account. Feel free to correct me in any incorrect assumptions I'm making.

I had to use my old spam account as the primary account since that other system does not allow the "+" character in the email address even though it is a valid character and I am able to use it in a bunch of other sites.

 

I don't know if you have any pull/link or whatnot with whomever deals with that other system or if you can point me in the direction in which I should be addressing this issue to.

And We're back...
