Many of you might be aware of or have participated in our Introduce Yourself! thread over the past year. This thread has been very popular, and with over 300 replies, we have outgrown the current thread structure.

 

We have evolved the member welcome experience by creating a new space (GeoNet Member Introductions) dedicated to member introductions and welcomes. In the New space, each new introduction will be its own thread, allowing for better search-ability, and allowing more collaboration among members. We also included in the space additional resources to help new members get started on their community journey. Lastly, we moved the old thread into this space for historical view. 

 

If you are new to GeoNet, we encourage you to post in this space. Our team will be moderating the space and responding to each thread with helpful information. If you are a seasoned member we encourage you to welcome new members as they post in this space. 

 

Looking forward to collaborating with you!

Our platform vendor had scheduled our community instance to be upgraded on May 7th, between 7:00 PM -12:00 AM PDT.

 

During the upgrade window, the GeoNet Community will go down for approximately one hour. Our vendor cannot provide the exact time the community will not be available due to the way their upgrades are batched together. 

 

A few of the bugs that will be fixed in this release include:

  • Intermittent issues with widgets failing to load 
  • The broken help link in the drop down menu
  • The answered/unanswered question tiles not loading properly
  • Fixed the issue that caused some links and mentions to be poorly formatted
  • An already published blog can no longer be saved as draft when editing it
  • Along with a number of other back end/ admin level bugs....

 

 

 

Thank you for your patience during this maintenance window. If you have any questions or issues, please contact us at: geonet@esri.com

 

On January 18, 2019, the GeoNet Community team will begin the process of deactivating GeoNet member accounts that have been inactive for the last 3 previous years (2014-2017). This will allow us to manage the community more effectively and ensure our active member data reflects those who regularly engage and are active in the community. Going forward, this feature will be a permanent addition to our community management and we will continuously deactivate accounts as the 3-year anniversary of last logged in date is reached on any registered account.

 

What changes will I see in my experience?

 

If you have an active GeoNet account (logged in at least once over the last 3 years), there will be no noticeable changes to your experience. No action is needed since you’re an active member.

 

For member accounts that are inactive for more than 3 years, those accounts will be deactivated on January 18 and those members will not be able to access their account after that date.

  • Those accounts will be deactivated but not deleted and all content associated with those deactivated accounts will remain.
  • No content will be deleted during this account deactivation process.
  • Esri accounts will not be impacted. This deactivation will only impact GeoNet account access.

 

What should I do if I don’t want my inactive account deactivated?

 

If you think you might have an inactive account for more than 3 years and you would like your account to remain active, there are options.

  • If you can login to your previously inactive account before January 18, we recommend doing this because it will update your last account login date to a more recent date.
  • If you cannot access your inactive account and need help with your credentials, please contact the team at geonet@esri.com who can help locate your details.

 

What should I do if my inactive account was deactivated and I want it reactivated after January 18?

 

We can help you reactivate it. Contact the GeoNet team at geonet@esri.com.

 

What should I do if I am Esri staff or a distributor?

 

We have shared steps for Esri staff and distributors on internal channels. Contact the GeoNet team at geonet@esri.com.

 

 

Thanks, as always, for your patience and support while we continue to make improvements to GeoNet, The Esri Community.
