Last month, we noted that Xbox Forums would be moving to the Microsoft Community Forums. The move was part of Microsoft's plans to "empower users with discussions," but there wasn't an exact timeframe for when things would fully transfer over. Well, it looks as though part of the move is now complete as an official announcement is now out (via MSPoweruser.)
The announcement can be seen in full here, as posted by Mister Quimby, a Microsoft Agent, Ambassador, and Moderator. He explains that "the time has come for the forums to move" adding that "very soon, we’ll be redirecting all of the forum threads to open only in their new home in the Microsoft Community forums."
It is being urged for Xbox forum members to head to the Microsoft Answers Forums and start using it today. Users can still view all their threads via forums.xbox.com or the Community forums, but it's still best to try out the Microsoft Answers forums and fill out this survey.
Per Mister Quimby, forums.xbox.com will be turned off once all the features od the Xbox area of the community forums are fully finished and tested. So it's best to try out our right now and get yourself acquainted.
