Autodesk Beta Community
Any software that are launched in the market, usually undergoes a series of rigorous test and upgrades along with feedback from the customers
Well, feedback is one of the most important and crucial aspect for the company to grow and compete in the market. Of course, customers too participate in these feedback along with 3rd party software developers.
Autodesk too has been working on this front using the portal http://myfeedback.autodesk.com/ (which will phase out in the next couple of weeks) see image below
Here is Question and Answer supported by Shaan Hurly from Between the Lines
Q: Will my account be automatically migrated to the new Autodesk Feedback Community?
A: No, you will need to sign up on this new Autodesk Feedback Community at http://beta.autodesk.com/signup
Q: Will I need to sign up again or can I use my old MyFeedback login?
A: With this new Community you will need to sign up for a new account.
Q: What does this mean for non-beta related forums?
A: The new Autodesk Feedback Community will only support active beta projects. There will not be futures or miscellaneous discussion forums hosted.
Q: What will happen with existing forum posts, will they be available after May 30th?
A: The server will be offline and access to content and posts will be unavailable. You can keep a local archive on your machine by following the instructions
Q: Will there be NNTP access in the new Autodesk Feedback Community?
A: Yes, in the beta projects in this new community you will have the choice of HTTP:, SMTP email, and NNTP to participate in the discussion forums.
Want to archive discussion newsgroup content offline?
Many people choose a NNTP newsreader because you can use them to download newsgroup content and work with it while you aren’t connected to the Internet. You can download the forum posts to your Outlook Express or Windows Mail in Vista, and FreeAgent for later review.
All content from the MyFeedback website and discussion forums are considered confidential and not to be disclosed or publicly published.
Remember May 30th 2009 MyFeedback will be redirected to http://beta.autodesk.com and you will need to sign up to continue Autodesk beta testing of products at http://beta.autodesk.com.
