I was waiting to see if this new site was going to fill the previous contributions but nothing so far.
Where are all my previous posts? Were they deleted?
As Trimble Distributor for Geopatial, Infrastructure, eCognition, INPHO, PenMap, Marine Construction now I am not a member of distributor groups as I was before, how and when will this be fixed?
Unfortunately the migration to this new platform did not go as smoothly as they had intended. There is about a month of content (across all the communities) that has yet to be migrated. They havent given us a timeline of when they expect the remainder of the content to be moved over (so that could be one reason you are not seeing some of your contributions).
I did however see you have 36 contributions listed under your profile - are you expecting more that this?
As for losing access to previously joined communities - there was an issue with the migration where mapping of users did not happen correctly. I think most users were not automatically added to the same communities in this new system. From conversations I have had with the host - they have done the best they could and any users not mapped to the communities will have to rejoin. I am not too familiar with how the distributor communities are managed - but it appears you have to be invited to the community (and are not able to freely join). To be added back to your previous communities, you can:
Hope this helps!

Hi Laura thanks for your response
Indeed I should have more than 100 responses in the TBC Beta User Group...
Will keep waiting for uploading the new website
Also will contact to join again my distributor communities.
I appreciate you asking for feedback. Unfortunately I'd be very surprised if any of it is positive. I for one could not be more disappointed, the forum has lost all it's useful features and is but a shell of it's former self. This has resulted in an obvious decline in engagement. I'd like to ask why changing the site's web host would necessitate any change at all in it's format, let alone a complete overhaul to something that is vastly less user friendly along with nearly a complete loss in user data migration, IE: contributions, bookmarks, even joined communities have been lost; not to mention the inability to get a notification for replies to threads engaged in without getting notified for EVERY single post made on the site multiple times through email, ect... I can't think of any reason what so ever for such a thing short of a very disappointing mistake, certainly not a of changing web hosts. Unfortunately, I (and many others it seems) will be participating far less if at all as a result of this mistake.
