- HPP: I'm not a fan of the very short subject lines, it didn't take long before trying to read a narrow column of text started giving me a headache!
- HPP: I have a 24" wide screen monitor, I hate it when web UI's restrict my ability to more appropriately utilize more/all of my display space (eg. see short subject line column mention above)
- RE Step 5 in "If you already have an HP Passport account", I can login there but am immediately told that cookies aren't enabled along with information on how to do so. BIG Problem, I don't like being told to weaken the security of my Internet Zone browsing for a single site! I may be okay with accepting first party cookies for HP sites (we'll see) but am less inclined to consider accepting third party cookies these days of increased security exploitations.
- HPP: Without having made any changes to my Internet Zone cookie settings I find that http://h30499.www3.hp.com/ allows me to login without complaining unlike the Step 5 experience noted above, it even remembered that I had logged into it earlier tonight. Why the difference?

I just tested my login & it works fine.
I have a question :)
All my responses and points will be moved to the new site or we will be starting fresh.
05-19-2011 02:21 AM
I heard we should see a FAQ soon.
The new forums use something called 'kudos'.
For every point between 8-10, you will get one kudos.
05-19-2011 05:16 AM
Biju - All of the historical discussions will be migrated - so we won't lose any of the great content that's been submitted over the years. And as Johan mentioned, there is a new recognition system within the new community, but points you've earned here in the ITRC forums will be part of the transition/migration - they'll become "kudos", but you won't lose your relative rank amongst your fellow contributors.

"but you won't lose your relative rank amongst your fellow contributors."
How is this possible if points 1-7 are not counted?

It seems that http://h30499.www3.hp.com will become the new location for HP forums. Assuming this :
1) Maybe it has been previously explained, but from http://h30499.www3.hp.com where can I find a HP-UX virtualization forum (like http://forums.itrc.hp.com/service/forums/categoryh
2) From the main menu, we can see some Kanji characters (or others, whatever is the name which one gives them) pointing to some categories.
Do you really think it is a viable way to mix occidental and asian characters ?
Every one, who has something to do in IT, speaks english. Even me, who has one of the worst english in the world ;-) But not all people can understand the chinese.
It simply means that some categories of the forum will be inaccessible to most people.
And if I want to follow your thinking to the end, why don't you also accept jude, cyrillic, greek characters ... and posts in others langages. For example in french .... ;-)
I just can't believe it !!!
3) Kevin, you said about our forums user name, screen name, nickname or whatever how you call it, that "you may include spaces". It simply doesn't work. Only the underscore is accepted.
Maybe I have a stiff psychology, but I just want to be kwown as "Eric SAUBIGNAC", not "Eric_SAUBIGNAC". Even our old, none perfect, ITRC forum let us have space in our name ...
But in fact, what I wanted to point is your error. OK, error is human, and nobody can blame you for this one. But I found an other one there : http://h30499.www3.hp.com/t5/Community-Feedback-Su
How many appreciations from the administrators of the new forum will finally be erroneous ?
4) And since I am speaking of errors ...
Most of my clients organize some tries before a definitive migration to a major release of their application or when a new one will replace the old one.
After the tries, end users report about bugs, lacks, loss of data, ... All of this is analyzed and in most cases, the new application's configuration is modified, some parts are coded again, the ISV is asked to make some changes, and so on.
We can admit that we are facing a major migration, there. Right ?
We can admit that all forums users are end users. Right ?
So why are not we involved in a test phase ?
Again, I can't believe it !!!

Regarding the new forum at http://h30499.www3.hp.com/ have a look at Kevin Paul's post from Apr 27, 2011 21:59:51 GMT in this thread:
An by the way, bien sur, there is a french forum :-) http://h30478.www3.hp.com/
It is one of the 10 (!) different Lithium instances I have found at hp.com...
05-30-2011 08:30 AM
I will read this post later : too many things "to eat and to digest" for someone whose the native langage is not english. But I will, and many thanks for this link.
In fact I don't think that it is a good idea to have localized forums. A very bad idea in total contradiction with the concept of Single Point Of Knowledge. Just a useless fragmentation. IMHO.
And I am very disappointed that Kevin Paul did not answer on this specific point.
05-31-2011 07:37 AM
Yes, this is a major migration - and that is why you don't see any HP UX areas - YET. That will change on the 18th, when all of the legacy content is migrated into the new forum environment.
Your "screen name" CAN include a blank space if you are one of our existing users here in the ITRC forums that has an account migrated. The new site will not allow NEW users to use blank spaces - they'll have to use the underscore instead.
And yes, there are currently a few other forums listed for our users in Asia Pacific and Japan. We realize that's not a great experience for users not looking for content in those languages; it's an interim solution that will be resolved later this summer.
05-31-2011 09:22 AM
Apologies too for my impatience.
--- "that is why you don't see any HP UX areas - YET"
Well ... not totally convinced. So just wait and see :-(
--- "Your "screen name" CAN include a blank space if you are one of our existing users here in the ITRC forums that has an account migrated"
Not sure I correctly understood. Do you mean that my screen name, that actually contains an underscore in the new forum, will be AUTOMATICALLY updated AFTER the migration to reflect the one I have in the ITRC ?
Note : I have noticed that in the new forum, your screen name is Kevin_Paul, so also with an underscore ;-)
--- "it's an interim solution that will be resolved later this summer."
Really hope it will. For example I have seen that some threads around HP-UX exist in the new forum but in chinese, or whatever it is. I can't say :-(
06-01-2011 04:08 AM
I have to ask:
> Your "screen name" CAN include a blank space if you are one of our existing users here in the ITRC forums that has an account migrated.
So what happens to those of us with a dot (period) after our middle initial? And what about folks with hyphenated names?
06-01-2011 05:59 AM
James - Sorry, I should have been more specific - migrated names can also contain periods and hyphens - again, as long as the match between an HPP account (not already tied to a screen name on the new community site) and the ITRC profile exists.
06-01-2011 06:07 AM
That's EXACTLY THE PROBLEM : I already have an HPP (with the good email), and already a screen name since the very first thing you are asked to do when you want to access the forum (don't remember if it is only for reading or for posting) is to create a screen name !!! And at this point you CAN'T create a screen name with a blank !!!!
So ... ?
06-01-2011 09:06 AM
Perhaps what I should do is modifying my current HPP's e-mail to a foo one, then create a new HPP with the good e-mail and NEVER go the forum until the migration is achieved :-(
But my HPP is associated with the SSII I am working for and must be validated. More, my student ID is also attached to the HPP. So I am afraid I will cause more damage to the situation if I try this.
And as said in he initial post from Kevin, modifications have to be done 'prior to June 1st'. And today IS the day :-(
But what I don't understand is WHY SUCH SUBTLETY IS NOT CLEARLY EXPLAINED !!!
Kevin, is there a way to erase current screen name BEFORE the migration occurs ?
06-01-2011 09:17 AM
Don't worry about the June 1st deadline - we actually have some extra time beyond today before the registration processes are completed.

Thanks, that's good news after my last conversation with you guys.
