Update on the Community
Will you get a timely response to your discussion in the ARM Connected Community? Part of the formula for a successful community is the confidence a member has that their question will receive a reply. Let me share some impressive data with you. Since launching the community at ARM TechCon in October 2013, 1,288 discussions have been asked and 1,140 have responses - that's nearly 90%, which is pretty impressive! A huge thank you to all of the members and ARM experts for sharing your ARM knowledge with others.
If you have asked a question in the community and received a correct answer, it would be very helpful if you can mark the reply as 'correct' (and other replies as 'helpful'). Once you mark the correct answer, the reply automatically rises to the top of the thread - making it easier for the next member with the same question to find the answer. This is also helpful for others to differentiate which questions are still awaiting a correct answer.
See the visual below on how you can differentiate discussions that have been marked as correct.
Tip: You can easily search for unanswered questions by clicking the 'Content' tab on the top menu bar --> Click the 'Discussions' tab --> Select 'Open Questions' from the drop-down menu
Please keep in mind the community traffic dips down from Friday evening through Sunday evening as many members and experts are away from their computers. Your question asked during this time will most likely receive a reply on the following Monday.
Every week, I pick a few items on the community I think you should see. You can also find featured content on the community homepage and on the overview page of each Group.

Tip - Poll Community Members
Do you want to know what community members think about something? Create a poll in one of the groups you would like people to find the poll in. After you post your question and the possible answers, your poll will show up for other people to vote on.
To create a poll:
- Visit one of the Groups
- Click 'Create a poll' from right Actions
- Give the poll a title and description. The title will appear above the list of options in the published poll, so you should use it as the poll's question. The description will appear on the page that lists the poll's full results
- In the Choice 1 and Choice 2 boxes, type in answer options
- Add any tags to the poll so it will show up in searches
- Click Advanced Options > Change voting options. From there, set the date you want to publish the poll (immediately or a specific date) and when you want voting to end (on a specific date, in X amount of days, or manually)
- Click Create
It would be useful for us to have feedback on what you think is good and what isn't, so we know what to try and change and what not to interfere with...
Please take a minute to tell us.
