LiveFyre commenting will no longer be available on the PowerShell Gallery

Avatar

Commenting on the PowerShell Gallery is provided by LiveFyre–a third-party comment system. LiveFyre is no longer supported by Adobe and therefore we are unable to service issues as they arise. We have gotten reports of authentication failing for Twitter and Microsoft AAD and unfortunately we are unable to bring back those services. As we cannot predict when more issues will occur, and we cannot fix issues as they arise we must depreciate use of LiveFyre on the PowerShell Gallery. As of May 1st 2019 LiveFyre commenting will no longer be available on the PowerShell Gallery. Unfortunately we are unable to migrate comments off of LiveFyre so comment history will be lost.

How will package consumers be able to get support?

The other existing channels for getting support and contacting package owners will still be available on the Gallery. The left pane of the package page is the best place to get support. If you are looking to contact the package owner, select “Contact Owners” on the package page. If you are looking to contact Gallery support use the “Report” button. If the package owner has provided a link to their project site in their module manifest a link to their site is also available in the left pane and can be a good avenue for support. For more information on getting package support please see our documentation.

Well that's unfortunate, but there's not much that can be done about unsupported third party tools.  Have you looked at using something like yammer per module/page?

My first impulse was to pop over to archive.org and save some favorite threads for posterity.  Bzzzzt.  It appears that LiveFyre have done a most excellent job of making their content difficult to archive.  Usenet, anybody?  Primitive, but has survived for decades.

Re: LiveFyre is no longer supported by Adobe.Is that some particular aspect of LiveFyre? I'm still seeing LiveFyre mentioned as an active product, for example, in Adobe Experience Manager.
