[Update] Orkut Help Group being moved to Google Help Forum, Create your Google Profile Now!!

Vandini Ravindran(The Orkut Guide) has already given the following notice in the OHG about moving the Orkut Help Group to a new forum.
Hi everyone,

We're in the process of moving the orkut Help Group from Google Groups to a new platform that offers a number of features our users have requested. The Forum in Google Groups will be closed to posting once we've made the switch, but will still be available as an archive of all the great information you've shared.

Some of the features the new forum will provide:

- Question & answer format to help you find answers quickly - Better spam detection and prevention - Public recognition of Top Contributors and frequent posters

I'll make sure to post another announcement as soon as the new forum launches, but wanted to give you all a heads up so that the change doesn't take you completely by surprise :)

Thanks in advance for your patience as we work to build a community in the new orkut Help Forum. We hope you'll come check it out!

Cheers, Vandini

Upon a little digging we figured out that future Orkut Help would found in Google Help Forum. You may make your Google Help Forum Profile now and start helping. As you can see in the screenshots that your contribution would be evaluated by the number of answers and the quality of answers which is determined by "thumbs up" from other members. The best answer is chosen and given a green tick. The more good quality answers you provide, the more your level and reputation would increase. It works like somewhat like Yahoo! Answers.

This is particularly useful to people who were or want to be active in the Orkut Help Group before to get a headstart.

~~The End~~
