The forum will experience an outage sometime between February 10 at 7:00pm EST and February 12 at 11:59 EST for installation of security updates. The actual time and duration of the outage are unknown but attempts will be made to minimize the downtime. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Here's the announcement, in a reply-to-a-reply-to-a-three-month-old-forum-post...


If you want to see what you are (going to be) missing, see the SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere Developer Center.

To cite a cite from Dan's forum post there:

"Selecting the correct space is important to ensure your content gets the right visibility and increases its chances of receiving responses quickly from other SCN users. To find a relevant space..."

Dear SAP Sybase SQL Anywhere product management, do I have to think that this Developer Center is not that relevant anymore?

I guess I don't understanding that whole SAP SCN thing, sigh.

Looks like they are going to do the same thing to SQL Anywhere that they did to PowerBuilder - I hope we can keep this forum as the SAP forums seem to have a variety of bugs and regular performance issues. Having experienced both - I recommend that you create a Independent User Group and keep this Forum the way it is.

Well, that's what us old-school folks are used to call it. The new term seems to be "gamification"...

Also I like the notification on topics of interest - a big plus for this forum and the way the data can be searched. If I were in SA Management I would fight to keep this Forum going.

This forum works so well for a LOT of us. A term coined a couple of years ago comes to mind, "The SAPification of SQL Anywhere"... I am beginning to understand that term much better.

Wasn't it "SAPistration"? ...or is that too dark? :)

I didn't want to mention who coined that phrase :). Trying to be Canadian nice while getting shafted... That looks like the more appropriate wording.
