UPDATE: We've had overwhelming amount of feedback regarding our plan to archive user groups. At this time, we have decided to migrate all user groups over accordingly and will perform a thorough audit at a later date. No further action is needed at this time.
As you may know, the NI Community is currently undergoing some major renovations. We're creating a single, unified NI Community, as well as updating the look. During these renovations, we will be migrating the content and experiences -- documents, user groups, and blogs -- from the NI User Group Community onto the platform currently used to host the NI Discussion Forums.
As a part of this effort, we have performed an audit on the 1,600 user groups and 200 blogs found in the NI User Group Community. We reviewed all user groups and blogs that had no activity for more than 6 months, only had 1 or 2 members, or had no content at all. We then verified which of these groups and blogs are now inactive. We want our renovated community to provide the best experience to our users and therefore, archiving inactive groups and blogs is necessary to ensure our freshest and most used content is easily found.
Any inactive user groups or blogs will be archived during our migration starting on August 5th. The inactive groups and blogs will no longer be available after the migration. If you are the owner of a user group or blog that will be archived, you will be receiving an email from the NI Community team.
Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any concerns.
