Back in the day we had the partner support forum, it wasn't perfect but usually, if you persevered you would get something. It may not be a solution but you would get something that could point you in the right direction. Then we had TechNet, say no more....
How is this an improvement?
You post a legitimate question on here and it feels like you have shouted out of the window of a moving vehicle. If you're lucky someone on the street may hear you and shout back but not likely!
