  1. Congratulations!!! So is this a nomination, or will you receive it? I certainly hope for the latter – very well deserved in that case!!!!!


  2. Let’s hope for the best!!


    • I think on of the issue with the MVP programme is that its way to focus on user groups, and doesn’t capture the benefit that people like myself offer (hopefully) to the community of a specific vertical/industry. Thoughts?

      • Yes, I agree totally. It has gradually gotten somewhat better throughout the years, but they (MS) are still very much focused on support on forums and UG’s.

        Also, certain products MVP programs can be very “cliqy”, and if the “leading” MVP’s doesn’t like you – it will be hard. However it helps if you have good contacts with the product group people.

        Anyway, I don’t think you’ll have any problems – with all the community effort you put in.
