    Default Forums MVP Program - Launching February 23rd

    You may have noticed that some of the members on these forums are badged as "Forums MVPs". For the past several years (up until mid 2010) the old forums (now archived) had an MVP Program that we all used to recognize the valuable contributions of the most active and knowledgeable members of the ArcGIS community.

    Due to popular demand, the program is back, and it's now improved based mostly on feedback we received over the past few years from you. Turned out the old program had some significant flaws; we have removed those.

    On February 23rd the new program will launch, which will include:

    1)
    New Forum MVPs: Based on activity over the past 18 months, we have selected 20 forums users as our newest Class of MVPs. They will be announced, badged accordingly, and also eligible for prizes as described using the rules and prizes of the existing MVP program.

    2)
    New Forum MVP Program Rules: We will publish a new set of MVP program rules that you can follow if you are interested in being recognized as one of the top contributors in the community. These rules are simpler to follow, and more importantly, the selection of MVPs will have much more validity because now the program is based on voting by the entire user community, not just Esri Staff or the original poster of the thread. We are also giving more voting weight to those in the community who are already badged as MVPs or Senior Members.

    Thank you all very much for your continued patience as we complete the roll-out of this already overdue program.

    And of course thank you all very much for your questions, your answers, and your discussions. The ArcGIS Forums continue to be the most used, most useful, and most active platforms we have for ArcGIS users to be most successful with these technologies.

    The new MVP program goes live tomorrow morning (2/23). Watch for a post here, a link to a blog post about it (including an annoucement of the new 20 MVPs), and a link to the page that lists the new official rules and such.
