Posted on August 16, 2010 by

Apple Discussions, Apple’s online support boards, was down for a short time this weekend and now they have announced that it will become Apple Support Communities.

From Apple:

-What is Apple Support Communities?
Experience the Power of Apple Support Communities.

Apple Support Communities brings together thousands of Macintosh, iPod, iPhone, and iPad users from around the world to discuss Apple products and topics. 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.

The Homepage is the Heart of Apple Support Communities.

Home is where you Register and Login. Home is where you start to browse or search our product Communities, ask or answer a question, and get answers from other Apple users like you. Home is where you create your Profile, personalize your Homepage, and customize Your View. Home is Where it All Begins.

Register. Participate. Express Yourself.

-Your Apple Support Communities, brought to you by you
Customize and consume your information, your way.

Introduce yourself to other support communities members by completing your profile and biography. Upload your profile picture and avatar, and invite your friends to join in the discussion. Personalize your homepage, select your preferences, add widgets. See the Apple Support Communities information you want to see, when you want to see it.

– Score!
It’s Easy to Earn your Apple Support Communities Rep.

The Apple Support Communities reputation system helps increase community participation. When you recognize another community member for providing helpful advice or a solution to a question, you help increase his or her status level within the community. And they can do the same for you. While it may be better to give (an answer) than to receive (reputation points), at Apple Support Communities, rewards come in both forms.
