Community Changes and Feature Definitions Details

To get ready for the change feel free to check out the new designs for these pages:

The “Create” menu will now be the “Contribute” menu for posting community articles/repos and asking questions. 

Also use the “Ask A Question” button in the main navigation from any page.

You can still share your expertise, tips, or technical knowledge with the community using Community Articles. Just look for the new menu options.

“Browse” Menu

Browse all content via “Labels” or content type (questions, repos, articles)

In HCC there was one leaderboard based on total points. 

In the new community you will find the following leaderboards: Top solution Authors, Top Kudoed Authors, Top Repo Contributors and Top Community Article Contributors. 

Additionally, you can view your rank level on your own profile page. 

The Leaderboards & Badges in the new community will have more information at migration.
