First off, I'm excited to see this latest (Pilot) iteration of Pega developer support. Jive is a good platform. Thanks to all who worked to get us here!
One concern I have, given that this is a pilot *and* there's an open question whether this will be the platform going forth, is how we can get some degree of confidence that user-created content will persist. I had been contributing some posts in a shared area for the last year, and my access to that appeared to disappear this week. It may be coincidence -- and I'm looking into that privately -- but I'd like to be able to move content here if it makes more sense (once nice feature about Jive is that it's very easy to move content from one place to another).
Also, an issue that could be of interest to many folks here, I'd like to search through the PDN Forums to find all my opinion questions, to evaluate whether to bring them forward here for fresh visibility. There's been varying support for finding all of one's posts on the PDN Forum platform (see question), and, while strictly speaking that's a question for the PDN team, it is all part of the face of GCS to us customers. It would be helpful to have all of one's content in one place -- and it doesn't necessarily need to be done automatically, we users should be able to at least pick & choose.

I have captured a PDF of our discussion and emailed it to PDN Support and the PDN Dev Team with your request -- that all external customers have access in their PDN Profiles to views with links to all of their PDN Topics, Replies, and Posts. See the email attachment here.
I will follow up here when I get a response.

Welcome. We are very excited to have you here. You and Mary seem to have the PDN bit under control so I will focus on your first question.
Before sending out the kick-off invite this morning, it was with the knowledge that one of the top concerns of anyone we ask to do this will be whether their participation would be worthwhile for our long-term strategy (where ever it may take us) or only in the context of this pilot. And we believe that if it's the latter we won't get the level of participation we are looking for.
We recognize that each and every participant's time, knowledge, and ideas are valuable. As we get this pilot off the ground, the value of what you provide and it's importance to you will be at the forefront of defining the longer term strategy.
Or, to put it another way, we have no intention of tossing out a bunch of excellent user-provided content at the end of this just because we're doing it as a pilot
