For the last several months, we've been busily designing and building improvements to make it easier for all of us to use our Office 365 community. We'll start rolling out these changes in the next few weeks. Watch this blog for news about these changes a week or so before they’re released.
Here’s a list of the first changes you’ll see. Refer to the sections below for more details.
We use our blogs like billboards along the highway, to drive attention to new features, events, and what’s happening with Office 365. Our blog audience is Office 365 customers, partners, and anyone interested in what’s going on with Office 365.
We currently have three blogs:
The Office 365 Technical Blog is the one place in our community that you can view to find out what’s going on with Office 365. Our audience is Office 365 customers, and those who support and develop for it. We’re focusing our blog publishing work on this blog. We encourage you to subscribe to this blog to stay up-to-date with Office 365.
The Archived Microsoft Office 365 Blog contains posts that were moved to the Office 365 blog. We have not published to it for a year, so we’re going to turn it off.
The Grid blog is where we publish contributions from our Grid members. We’ve decided to close this blog and publish all of our Grid member posts on the Office 365 Technical blog.
The Office 365 forums are where customers post questions and where we and our customers engage in discussions. The forums are monitored by Office 365 Support, MVPs, and members of the Office 365 product teams.
The Office 365 forums are currently organized into categories, with several forums in each category, for a total of 37 forums. Your feedback told us that it’s hard to decide where to post, and to know where to look for information. In response, we’re flattening our forum structure by removing categories, and we’re reducing the number of forums to 15. There will be one forum for each major service or area of interest. All existing forum posts will be moved into the new forum structure, so we won’t lose any information.
The Office 365 forums are available in all the languages in which we offer forum support, and we’re constantly adding new languages.
We use wikis to post information by Microsoft contributors very quickly and to publish information that will appear in the Office 365 portal. We’ve added new wikis to support some of our new services, and we’ve paired wikis with forums where possible, so it’s easy for you to find information related to specific services. This will also make it easier for the service teams to engage in discussions and manage the information they present.

Sounds good to me. I've always felt that the community site was a little cluttered.
You might want to add an annoucment in the forum with a link to this blog entry. People who frequent the forum may not notice this blog entry.
Will the improvements make it so that MCC Awards are displayed in the Office 365 forums as they are in the TechNet Social Forums?
Thursday morning, 2/21/2013, beginning at 7 AM Pacific time, the Office 365 Community will be offline
So, where do we find our previous postings?
I can't seem to find any of my postings for the last couple of weeks..
I did look under activativty as well as searches. But some of my latestest postings/activity that were under ADFS appear to be gone. For example I made postings on the 18th & 19th this month but my activtity other than avatar - first goes to the 11th .
forgot to mention the 15th as weel ---and all this month
I finally found them ... they aren't listed under my activtity - but I had to do a rather wide search
The Activity tab in the profiles is broken. Is there an ETA on fixing it? Thanks!
a very wide search..
The Activity tab didn't work at all for me. When I clicked to a different tab, it flashed the contents. Otherwise it showed nothing.
