We have decided to phase out the Mixed Reality Forums over the next few months in favor of other ways to connect with us.
The first way we want to connect with you is our mixed reality developer program, which you can sign up for at https://aka.ms/IWantMR.
The plan between now and the beginning of May is to clean up old, unanswered questions that are no longer relevant. The forums will remain open and usable.
On May 1st we will be locking the forums to new posts and replies. They will remain available for another three months for the purposes of searching them, and then they will be closed altogether on August 1st.
So, where does that leave our awesome community to ask questions? Well, there are a few places we want to engage with you. For technical questions, please use Stack Overflow, and tag your questions using either hololens or windows-mixed-reality. If you want to join in discussions, please do so in the HoloDevelopers Slack, which you can join by going to https://aka.ms/holodevelopers. And always feel free to hit us up on Twitter @MxdRealityDev.
Providing Feedback Effectively
I just wanted to provide a quick note about providing effective feedback to the Mixed Reality team. I am not on the Mixed Reality Team, or even work for Microsoft, but I have been working with them closely, and they do value and listen to our feedback.If you
This forum, while monitored by Microsoft, is not crawling with engineers looking to help us resolve issues. They do come in here and answer what they can, when they can, but I would not post in here and assume that reporting a bug that way will get it in the queue to get fixed.
The best way you can provide feedback for the engineering team is to use the Feedback hub to do so. There is a category for Mixed Reality, and sub-categories as well. When you file an issue in there, it gets pulled into a tracking system, so that's the far more reliable way of providing feedback. It also lets you provide screenshots, and even has an option where you can reproduce the issue with additional tracing turned on to help the engineering team even further.
If you are looking to provide enhancement requests, the feedback hub is also the place to do that. The more info and reasoning you can give, the better.
If anyone has any questions, please feel free to message me, i'm more than happy to find out what I can, or find someone who can answer it.
