Hi everyone

We've been very busy working on details behind the scenes, migrating and testing data and lots of other fun things ;) So...

We now have a launch date. Vodafone Forum will change to Vodafone Community on 1 February.

The Forum will be read only from 29 January so we can do the final migration. (We will still update the Network Status section if there are any network issues.)

There are a few things you need to know;
  • Your password will need to be reset when you login to Vodafone Community for the first time
  • Some usernames will need to change slightly. Lithium (the new platform) doesn't support spaces or special characters in usernames. So if your username is currently "Joe Bloggs!" it will become "JoeBloggs". Let me know if you have any concerns or questions
  • The address is changing. It'll be community.vodafone.co.nz (we're redirecting as much content as possible)
Vodafone Community will be integrated into our main site with the same look and feel while using the strengths of the Lithium platform. Our Social Media team and other parts of the company will be involved too, we'll have more to announce soon.

Finally - I've been appointed Community Manager. I'm looking forward to it. :)

Let me know if you have any questions or post a reply below.

Cheers

Dylan

I've had a quick look but it looks like Lithium isn't a supported platform for either app. I'll ask them anyway. :)

Edit: Lithium have got back to me. At this stage there aren't any apps that integrate with Lithium (the new platform under Vodafone Community). I understand there's a Lithium API so those apps might add support for it later.

We'll still be allowed to loudly complain about when new firmware updates are coming, right?

I was actually hoping for a special field, where we write down the latest reason we've imagined WE MUST HAVE THE LATEST FIRMWARE.

For example:


username: muppet
Location: Auckland
Firmware Update Required Because: My pony only has Bluetooth 3, need latest firmware for Bluetooth 3 compability with pony.

Otherwise I'll start a thread complaining about my lack of ability to complain.

I don't think we'll have that field exactly. All the best for your future Pony upgrades, Bluetooth 3 and the right headset will turn them into a young Mr Ed.

Hi everyone

Vodafone Community will now launch on 1 February instead of 30 January. I've updated the first post in this thread with that info too.

The forum will be "read only" between 29 January and 1 February so data can be extracted and imported.

Thanks

Dylan

Please call the contact centre if urgent as will come off and on during my breaks, lunch, or idle time or my roster day off to help out on the forums



Somethings that i mention on the forum is purely my personal findings through troubleshooting with customers that rang in and doesnt mean it works for them it works for you.
