Two days ago (July 1st, 2011), we started our forum for a German speaking audience and unlocked the user registration. We would like to thank to all developers from “Simple Machines” for creating a great forum software which is easy to administer and also already has a pleasant default layout.
We have created categories including forums for the Office Web Apps and for the e-Mail, calendar, team and communication features of Office365. A category offers forums for discussions about the administrative tasks in Office365. Another category is provided for collecting tips and tricks, book and website recommendations from our users and for linking to news from Microsoft about Office365.
The next steps will be to create a specific design, of course standards compliant, and to add some interesting features for the forum. I am also preparing the migration to a new provider as the current provider unfortunately does not satisfy my needs.
