This morning when I used my bookmark for Bridge http://forums.adobe.com/community/bridge/general, the page has Adobe icon and says "this item does not exist, it may have been deleted".
Went to the Adobe Community link and looked up Bridge at http://forums.adobe.com/community/bridge?view=discussions and this works, and give me same Discussion page as yesterday.
Is Jive changing addresses? Would be nice to know in advance.
Looks like they did the same for the Contribute forum. It looks like they combined all of the different areas into one (which is no big deal. It's pretty slow in there).
Yes. Some of the teams are consolidating things. What they’re actually doing is removing the umbrella forums that don’t have messages and only sub-forums by moving the general discussion forums up to the top level and making the others subforums of the general.
It shouldn’t affect the URLs of individual messages. Even the URL of the umbrella will stay the same. We’ll just lose the /general URLs in a few spaces.
Ok, but from the main community page, click on the supplied InDesign link and I get the 'deleted' message. A respondant to my post about this has said the same is happening to the Illustrator forum. Surely these main clearing house links to the main software-specific forums are supposed to work?
How exactly do I get to the forum list for the InDesign section?
Hit page down a couple times and look on the right
There is still a "place holder" for Encore... but clicking the supposed link leads to a not found message
If "some of the teams" are going to make link changes, they could at least update the pages so the correct link is used
Great products... sloppy implementation by the web teams
ADDED - just went to http://forums.adobe.com/index.jspa?view=overview and clicked to go to Encore... same result... forum is GONE
Whoever is doing these changes is not doing very well !!!
UPDATE about a half hour later... now, Encore is back when going from the index, and the link seems to be back from the Premiere forum page
Like I said earlier... very sloppy implementation of changes
This site doesn't just run on one server, there's a distributed network of nodes to handle the high levels of traffic. They synchronize with one another on a regular basis, but some changes can take a little while to ripple across. This means that for a few hours some of the updated forum spaces were not appearing for some users (depending on which node you attached to). The array has been restarted and everything should be working properly again.

So, now in the "Trending Questions" (I hate the term) of the Photoshop General Discussions Forum, posts made in the Photoshop Beginners Forum show up?
So, now in the "Trending Questions" (I hate the term)
Everybody here hates the term but the developers at Jive don't have enough terms to use and they are too proud to use the standard terms that are used in other forums. People here like Carboni, Gonzales and others have suggested different terminology but this has fallen on deaf ears.
Not counting the fact that the name is not easily understood in other languages. And then there are those like myself who find the Trending Questions themselves useless...
Incidentally, it seems that the name is now "Popular Discussions" ...
