    Default Apple Revamps Apple Support Communities


    Apple has given its online support forum a face lift of sorts. In the preparatory stages for close to a year, the revamped Apple Support Communities has been imbued with a new social networking aspect that effectively replaces the antiquated Apple Discussions board.

    "Apple Support Communities brings together thousands of Macintosh, iPod, iPhone, and iPad users from around the world to discuss Apple products and topics," Apple says. "Apple Support communities provides a wealth of information about your favorite Apple hardware and software products to help you get the most out of your purchase. And, in the spirit of community, you can also help other Apple Support Communities' users by answering their questions."

    Joining ASC is fairly straightforward. Once you sign in with your Apple ID, simply create a username for the Community and, when prompted, agree to the new ASC terms and conditions. Once you're in, you'll find a host of "communities" through which you can sift in hopes of finding one that's pertinent to your inquiry, product, or service. You can even use widgets to bring you the content you're interested in, from within or even outside the community. And making the experience a personalized one, users can spruce up their profiles with pics and avatars.

    Given the greater social emphasis of the online forums, Apple has even gone so far as to present standards of "Community Etiquette" that ASC members must abide by. The policy mandates include:
    • Post only technical support questions and answers, unless otherwise noted.
    • Be polite, constructive and stay on topic.
    • Search for questions similar to your own before submitting them to the community.
    • Reward helpful community members by marking answers to your questions helpful and correct.
    • Avoid speculation and rumors.
    For more info or to see what the revamp looks like, check out Apple Support Communities for yourself.

    God forbid it if you do. They'll have your IP address then. They'll find you. LOL

    Problem is the Apple support peeps never answer or help solve your problems. A good example is wifi on 3G after 4.0 upgrade.

    Do they still delete threads that discuss actual problems with their hardware and software?

    What problems? There's no problems. Problems with what? No problems here. "Problems". What a funny word. Apple has no problems. Remember, macs can't even get virus's according to apple genius'.

    Ha. We should organize the jailbreak community to flood the message boards with jb related material. Really teach them what the hardware is capable of. It would probably make steve jobs head explode.
